    New Tire Recommendation

    My 2010 F650GS is in need of a new set of tires. Can anyone make a recommendation? I ride mostly on blacktop but do get on the gravel/dirt roads which are abundant in KS. Thanks!

    LOVED the Anakee 3 on my F800GS,. great wear, did a fair amount of dirt roads, no serious off road, worked well great in twisties, and rain, wear far beyond expectations!

    I appreciate the feedback. Looks like they are getting decent reviews from what i have found online. Also read some positive comments on the Heidenau's. Have you changed tires on the 650? Some research shows this can be a daunting task.

    Should be easier then the 800GS, as the 650 is tubeless.

    I tried Heidenaus and hated them, they were way too buzzy for the road. I put on Metzeler Tourance Nexts and I love them so far.

    Thanks for the recommendation! How has tread wear been on the Metzlers. I priced them and they were significantly cheaper than some of the other brands.
