Thought I'd share my recent experience deciding on what tyres to go for on my F850 after the original tyres (Michelin Anakees) squared off at the rear at just under 6,000 miles.
Looking at some of the existing tyre threads, I;d hoped to go for Michelin Road Pilot 5's, as I'd had good experience of these on my previous GS1200, but they are not available in 850 tyre sizes, just the 750.
I've ended up going with Continental Trial Attack 3's and I have to say so far I'm very impressed. They seem to offer plenty of grip and give lots of reassurance when cornering - I've not had the opportunity to try them in the wet yet, but will report back once I have.
One really good aspect is they don't require 'bedding in' to get rid of the releasing agent - they are ready for full use straight away.
Worth looking at if, like me, you don't intend doing any off-road. In fact any off-roading I do will be the result of missing a breaking point and having an 'unplanned moment'!
