    You perhaps need to reassess your acceptable parameters or your bike set up ......

    I get more than that by some margin on the 14R, more again on the 10R and almost double on the LC.
    And I have no regard for maximum fuel consumption......

    Any update on how you thought these compared to the Anakee wilds? It’s almost tyre time for me and I’m split between these two.

    I'm coming up to 4000kms on these now......the rear is fairly squared but doesn't seem to be affecting the handling, I'd say there's another 3 - 4000kms left in it. The front looks no different to the photo above!! I'll be putting another rear on before a trip to Spain in early June and then I'll be changing back to Avon Trailriders, not because there is anything particularly wrong with the Pirelli , it's just that the Avon, in my opinion, is the best tyre available for the Hexhead GSA.

    Here's a picture of the rear with about 3500kms on it.

    Just putting my second Anakee 3 front on. I thought they hadn’t lasted very long but when I checked it was 10,000 miles - I got 7500 out of the rear before a nail knackered that one.

    Most riding done 2 up

    Completely destroyed the side blocks off the STR's over 10 days in Spain/France (3500kms) but can confirm that you won't be left wanting for side grip even during very aggresive riding.


    Picture of a new rear just prior to the trip........ I'll post an "after" pic when the bike arrives home on Thursday.
