R1200GS ADV / Anakee 2 This is an outstanding tire. Fronts are good for a minimum of 15,000 miles and rears would do 10,000 to 12,000 miles riding two up & fully loaded. I am not happy about this tire being discontinued. GSJockey November 4, 2013
Good Life Used them for about 2500+ miles and still deep looking tread. July 20, 2013
Great tire for the R1200GSA Best choice for the R1200GSA - works great off road in gravel roads, excellent grip for canyon carving, inspires confidence in the corners. This is my 3rd Set on the GSA. Mileage is usually 8000 to 10000kms - I am hard on my tires - large rider, usually fully loaded. Behaves well in the rain. Will buy again. June 10, 2013
Good Life Used them for about 2500+ miles and still deep looking tread. July 20, 2013
Excellent 80/20 tire! I put this tire on as replacement for the OEM(front) on my 2012 KLR. I've logged 11,100 miles on them and now there is a slight cupping problem although I could stretch another 200 if I needed to. I really liked this tire. It held up extremely well and stayed consistent and predictable in the rain. A bit wobbly in sand but you know that's going to be the case given the tread pattern. This tire's so good you'll forget it's there. I gave the "Good" rating for tread life since it's pretty common for front tires to surpass 10K miles. Unus July 14, 2013
Good tires Arrived as promised and easy to mount by hand after letting them sit in the sun for a couple hours. I have used Anakee 2's before and they work well on my Vstrom DL 650. Tread life is slightly better than average for an 80/20 tire and on road grip in wet and dry is excellent. They work well for hard packed gravel and caliche roads but this is not a deep sand or mud tire as it packs up just like a Tourance or the others with this similar tread pattern. Next time I think I'm gonna try the new Anakee 3's that just came out as I'm looking for a tire I can get some mileage out of. The high summer temps combined with the sharp aggregate chip seal asphalt here in south Texas eats a rear tire down to the cords in 4k to 5k miles. March 6, 2013
In for the long haul Just used this tire on a 1700 mile trek in Mexico...Fast highways, mountain twistys, off-road punishment. Takes abuse and asks for more...Not my first Anakee 2, won't be my last ! February 25, 2013
An ok tire, but a bit squirmy on the corners I haven't ridden it enough to say much about tread life, but it seems like a pretty good tire in most ways. My one main complaint is the 2 rows of grooves on the sides. They should be staggered more. As it is, they line up pretty well so as you're rolling into a corner you have good grip until you hit the groove on each side. As soon as you hit that groove it feels squirmy until you lean it over further and go past the groove. It doesn't slip when you hit the groove, but it is an unsettling feeling. I will not get these again. I think I will try a Metzler Tourance or Continental Trail Attack instead. March 25, 2013

Jessie V.: the VR speed rating is higher than the HR, my 2011 R1200GScame with the VR rated tires so I replaced them with VR rated tires. Jul 4, 2011

Tripintiger: If you are talking about the Metzeler Tourance, if they are available in the size to fit your KLR, this would be a great tire if you ride mostly on the street. For anything more gnarly than a nice gravel road, I would get a more aggressive tire. Sep 17, 2012
Reply to Tripintiger Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
RevZilla: Absolutely! Install with a tube and you are ready to rock. The stock rear tire size for a KLR is 130/80-17. Sep 6, 2012

A shopper asked: I have a F800GS BMW for front tires am I ordering the 90/90/21 (H) or (V) and for rear is it the 150/79/17 (VR) or (HR)? Jul 7, 2011
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Roosterman: The H and HR rated tires are generally for sustained speeds in excess of 130 MPH. If you don't ride that fast you don't need them. Some say that the tread life on the H rated tires is better because they have a higher heat rating, but in my experience I gave not found that to be true. Hope this helps Mar 6, 2013
Reply to Roosterman Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Sumo: Since the top speed of the F800GS is low, you could get by with either the H or the V.
H tires are rated up to 130mph
V tires are rated up to 149mph

If they are the same price, get the V, but if you can save any $, get the H.
