Ek dink ook in daai rigting ja.Bike het nou 8000 kms op en die voorband kan nog 'n ent gaan so ek sal 'n tkc voor op gooi as hy klaar is dink ek.

Geraas pla net as jy teerpad ry.....bly weg van die teer. Ons in die karoo is baie gelukkig in die opsig dat parralel met elke teerpad is daar 'n grondpad opsie.

Probleem is Frannarossi wil so af en toe 180+ ry en dan raak die moontlike opsies om op te sit maar min.
Knobblies like nie daai spoed op teer, dus is die enigste veilige opsie n 80/20 band of n 50/50, maar hulle is ook nie perfek nie. Harde compound maak dat hulle nie goed presteer op nat teer.
Jy gain n bietjie iewers en verloor n bietjie elders. Mens boet kilos in vir grip met knobblies en gain ho spoed, kilos en grip op teer met 80/20s.
Ek moet byvoeg dat daar menigte manne is wat tussen 7 en 8000 kms uit n knobbly kry. Ry hom so hard jy kan dan kan hy sulke kilos gee. Natuurlik is dit heel moontlik om dieselfde band binne 3000 kms moertoe te spin. ;) >:D

Dankie vir al die input.....
So ek neem aan 'n karoo 3 is die beter opsie wat geraas betref,kms is min of meer dieselfde,
Eks al so gewoond aan die Anakee 3 en hy het eintlik oorgenoeg grip op gewone grondpad,dis maar net sand,modder en klip waar hy nie lekker grip nie.
As ek dan so daaraan dink ry ek in die 8000 km wat ek op 'n Anakee 3 kry seker 4000km grondpad,so eintlik bly die Anakee 3 dan maar die antwoord vir durability en waarde vir geld.Vir die ander paar keer moet ek o toeknyp en die regterhand draai dan kom ek anyway anderkant uit net met bietjie meer moeite as met 'n growwer band.

Ek vind dat die Karoo 3 baie meer raas op teerpad as die Wilds, die Wilds raak stiller as mens vinniger as 100 begin ry, terwyl die Karoo 3's net al hoe meer skree. Met die Karoo 3's het ek nooit meer as so 4 tot 4 500 km's op n agterband gekry nie, met seker so 70 % grond, baie minder as jy baie teer ry.

Maar dan moet ek ook se dat ek partymaal te lui is om die bande te pomp voordat ek op die teer klim, vinnig ry op teer teen lae banddruk vreet daai ou bandtjies blitsig op

Dit is so.
Ek moet se dat die Wilds verskil in dat dit die eerste knobbly is wat "Radial" is. En vir n swaar en vinnige fiets soos n GS maak dit baie sin in terme van die band konstruksie. Of hulle wobble of nie sal ek nou nie weet nie.

Ek het nog geen "wobble" bespeur op myne nie, toegegee was ek net 'n paar maal hier by 200 km/hr rond

So no one else feedback on Wild's?

I'm about 1000-2000km away from new tyres. Leaning towards the Karoo 3's at this stage since the info on the Anakee Wild's are a bit 50/50 from what I see.

we have decided to stop stocking Anakee Wilds until we have more 'clarity'...
A customer/mentor who's advice we respect highly, and who rides professionally (for a living) was very disappointed in his 1st set, and said never again.
Yet, he tried another set, since he thought he MIGHT not have given his 1st set a fair 'shake'...
He then siad, never, never again, and we had some very mixed feedback from another couple of customers.
We also have a customer or two who like them, but I am now dubious...

I have NOT had time to investigate, BUT there seem to be TWO tread patterns internationally, and we have received only OEN style, so am keen to know how/why/what the other tread-pattern involves?

So, I think it may be worthwhile investigating Karoo/Heidenau/Mitas, etc?

Thanks Chris,
Yeah I think I'll come fit the Karoo3's as we discussed last time I was at your shop. Heidenau gives the best mileage but i'm not keen on its wet weather performance. Mitas E07 was good to me previously on the F800GS.
I also need to come get some of those XHead covers from you as well. Will only be when I come to fit the tyres towards the end of the month.
Any word on those lowered footpegs yet?
I would have gone for the SW Motech ones by now if they werent so expensive. :) I liked them on my 800.

Mine have unfortunately done only tar (commuting) so far but after 2500km the rear seems roughly 50% done.
I have no complaints so far.

I'm onto my second rear tyre. I love them. Great grip on the gravel and really not bad in the wet. Far better mileage than the Karoo 3's. My last rear tyre got 5200km on quite a bit of tar commuting. So good tyre in my view. Agree on pressures 2.3 and 2.8 but I find letting them down on the dirt definitely helps!

I've now done 6K on mine, 70/30 tar/dirt
Wear is great so far, the rear looks good for at least another 2-3k.

I ran them at 2F 2.2R off road last weekend, grip was great, very sure footed on rocky and loose gravel.

On tar, I find the front gets  quite loose at higher speeds, especially when decelerating, but overall they perform ok on the tar.

Here is my 5c. Put a Anakee Wild rear on before me and the wife did a Western cape, Eastern cape, KZN and Lesotho trip. Bike was loaded with camping gear and all.Did alot of tar to get to Lesotho. Tyre performed very well on tar, did great on gravel and helped us brilliantly through the washed away Matabeng pass in Lesotho. Did about 4100km on this trip leaving about 500km of thread left.

To put things into perspective, I got 4500km last year on a Hidenau K60 rear on a trip to the Baviaans and Hel with the wife. Looking back I would say the Anakee Wild is a really great all terrain performer, comparing to the very popular TKC 80. The soft compound makes mince out of technical terrain but lacks longevity because of this. In my opinion 8/10.

Just done 2500 Km on a new set of Anakee Wilds.  My view - very noisy on tar. At any speeds over 140 the front feels very "loose" on Tar.  My impression on hard pack dirt - at normal or soft (1.8 Kpa) - the bike felt loose.  Wear seems to be about 50% on the back and 70% on the front - gravel was approx. 500Km - Orange route on the Trophy and some gravel via Swazi. My reference is Anakee 3 (road biased) and Anlas Capra X.  I will never use the wilds again - I never felt at ease on the bike.

How did you find the Anlas CapraX?
