Loving the Africa Twin coming from a KTM super duke.

I will be doing a lot of highway commuting from Helena MT to Great Falls MT. On the weekends I am hoping to hit the forest roads of Montana.

I am debating between these two tires:

MICHELIN ANAKEE ADVENTURE

Or

MICHELIN ANAKEE 3

Which do you guys recommend for this type of riding?

Keep looking at those on CL. But think they might be overkill for Mn. I would go with the Adventure better traction on the fire roads and they will throw mud. The 3 look like they wont shed mud as much.

The bike is so comfortable to ride itís not even funny. I was amazed how light the bike feels in corners. I picked up a brand new 2017 for 10.5k out the door

I have the shinkos 804/805 on my bmw gs 1200 adventure and i use them off road and on road alot, half the price of the michelins and last just as long. I did the minnesota 300 2 years ago on them and it was vary muddy and water holes everywhere and was vary impressed with them
