Has anyone tried the Anakee's on their capo yet? What is the grip like in the Wet? , Dry? How do they compare to the tourance's? How Long do they Last? Questions Questions Questions!

I'm running them now. Little early to tell you about mileage, but they do stick well. Both in the rain and on dry pavement. I think they turn in a little quicker than the Tourance.

I have a set on order, and will follow up in a couple of weeks. Motorcycle Accessories Warehouse (no relation!) seems to have very good prices, and they are in inventory.
Correction: they were not in inventory, despite my pre-order phone call to confirm. After over ten days of waiting, I called and found out they had not even shipped yet-- so I cancelled the order!

Just finished a cross-country ride (3,800 miles) on the new Anakees. I really like these tires. The seem to wear perhaps just a bit faster than the Metzler Tourances, and the tread pattern is virtually identical. It seems to me that the rubber compound is a tad grippier. Very confidence-inspiring in the wet, as well-- I rode through the big rain storms in that hit Miss, Tenn, etc last week, including "the Dragon" through Deal's Gap, in the rain!
I travelled a combination of backroads and interstates, the latter usually cruising at 75 -85. The bike was well loaded down, so I wasn't peg-scraping aggressive. I haven't yet had the chance to test them out on a dry road, with no luggage. I suspect they'll be a bit sportier than Tourances. But loaded, on wet roads, they're just fine!
