Bike is currently on 14.5k miles and I would expect about another 2k before changing

£109 a pair is great! I don't like the anakee 3s that are currently fitted to mine.

M and P were advertising a pair of A40's for £109 delivered. I bought two sets, too good to miss. My last rear came at £140 fitted from my local non-franchise bike shop.

On previous bikes, I have had Avon Storms/Dunlop Roadsmarts & Metzeler.
Never actually wore out any replacement tyres as I had up to now changed the bikes before needing to replace the tyres.
On my 2014 VStrom 650 (2nd bike) I'm still running on originals, with only 4500 miles on it.
Its the only bike that when pushing on a bit will step out a little at the rear.
So I'm presuming the tyres are too chunky, so will need to change to a more road focused tyre.
After reading the reports here it's looking like the A40 or A41s. Unless anyone has experience of Metzelers on their Strom 650.??

I’m running the Bridgestone A41’s and on the road they are brilliant, wet or dry. So far I have done over 12k on them and still loads of tread to go, although the rear is flattening off now (too many motorway miles).

Looking to change to 50/50 now as the A41’s are useless in mud or sand. Light trails or a flat gravel road no problem, but if any real grip is needed then best to avoid. The A41’s are a true 90/10 road biased tyre,  best part is the grip and longevity.
