Hows the 6006's wearing? And are they 'that' squirrely on pavement?
I think they'll be good for 2500 miles, and they're the least confindence inspiring tires I've ever ridden.. There's a definate shift when you take the bike into a corner. As you take the bike into a corner, the entire bike shifts and then settles into the corner. I've had some drift out of these tires in corners, too..
It's been a long time since a bike has given me seat pucker factor, and these tires do it.. They rip the hell outta loose gravel and sand though!!
Only once did I have the Anakees break loose on me on pavement, and it was completely my fault.. I was daydreaming a touch and then realized that the left hand turn I wanted was closer than I thought. I was clipping along at 65 and this corner was coming up fast.. I climbed all over the front brake and cranked the bike left. I felt the front tire start to drift, so I backed off the brake and pushed the left bar. The tire bit and everything was fine, but that was the day that I decided that if the Anakee would let me pull something like that, it was a great street tire.. The corner was also off camber, adding to the chance of drift...
I felt in control, even during the second or so of slide, and the Anakees always allowed me to have the confidence to crank the bike over whenever I wanted to, and at any speed..
The 6006's just don't do it for me..
