You could look at buying and selling whle over there. Could work out cheaper.

Yeah...Nah
Yes Buying and selling would be cheaper but reality is you're unlikely to sell it on quickly. Although you maybe able to sort out a buy-back deal with a dealer...

  • what if the hokey cokey is what it's all about
don't know wether this will help
put bridgestone 023's on before my trip in june and did 2600 miles whilst away and i'm no expert but they out performed me gone has the high speeed wobble on long sweeping corners, holds the road well, hardley any chicken strip, grips well in the wet as well, to me they suit the bike fully loaded or not, bike seem's to be more agile and stable, turns in quicker.
thats in my oppinion others might say different, they seem to have worn well am noting the milage it looks like i'll get in excess of 6000 miles out of them don't know wether thats good or bad i'm sure someone might have a comment on that sort of milage

Did a web search and found some interesting stuff about dual compound tyres, some of the photo's showing the cupping that can happen was erm interesting.
I think I'll stick to Anakee's

I believe Anakee2s also a dual compound tire (?) I know the PR3's are. Have run both. The PR's are an excellent, long mileage, (10+K rear) all weather (no snow) road tire. But the Girly sometimes automatically / ocassionally  turns on to dirt roads without my permission - so generally prefer Anakees2s for their moderate DS capabilities. I got almost 8K out of the last rear.

Most tyres are dual compound, you'd be unlikely to find single-compound road tyres these days

High mileage dual compound Michs have a habit of doing it because of the steel strip they put in e'm,I had a pair of PR2's do it with heaps of wear left on e'm,but I've never seen that happen with any other tyre,single or dual compound.

So the Anakees don't cup?  I searched for the vids with no success  unfortunately, but have a few badly cupped fronts in my trash pile.

Had Pilot Road 2 and 3. Can't fault them for anything and the wet grip has more courage than I do.
No cupping yet on any of the PRs.

I have been running these for over a year. Shinko 705's. Previously ran Michelin and Conti's
Considering a set of Shinkos cost less than 1 rear Anakee, I am SOLD on these.
Truth be told, they do cause a small vibration at parking lot speeds. I attributed that to the "knobbier" pattern than the other tires I had.  Not a real issue, you get used to it.  On the highway, dry or wet, gravel and fire roads they are every bit as good as tires costing waaaay more.
