Yes, I found them to be great tyres. A search of the forum will get you a lot of positive reviews. Some comments that they are a bit noisy but I am more interested in wet/dry traction and tread life. I would buy them again.

OP has an XC.
There are a terrible lot of lies going about the world, and the worst of it is that half of them are true.

I've had three sets on 2 Tiger 800s an XC ans an XCX, Anakee 3s are a great tyre, good road holding, grip and last 15k miles more than double the original Pirelli and Bridgestone fitments.

Im a mitchelin fan so Im sure theyre decent.

Ive got Pirelli scorpion trail II on mine atm, which for road use are great. I wouldnt want to use them in more than a dry track off road through.

I like the Pirelli scorpion trail II, they are excellent on dry and wet tar.

Only downside, the front does not exceed 7000Kms.
The rear survives up to 9500Kms.

I live in a mountain area that spares no tires !!!!

I feel like a boat would be better for wet tar...
