    I was always a big Avon Venom fan especially after having so many manufacture problems with the Metzler 880. The Venoms were excellent wet/rain tires, but the longevity was no where near what the stock Dunlop's would get on my old bagger. I felt being a British Manufacturer, that their tires or tyres were suited to a climate more similar to what we have in Canada, more temperate, with lots of rain. I'm not ready for tires, yet, but I just saw Avon has come out with a Cobra series for cruisers and touring bikes. http://www.avonmoto.com/products/cruiser-touring-custom/cobra I'll pass on tire life for sticky tires any day.

    Noted a set of the Cobra's on a Heritage Classic at the PGR mission last weekend. He mentioned they had only been on the bike since mid october and so far did not have any complaints he could make about them.

    The sad part is I even did a reply to your post. I've got to cut down on the beer. So Sorry!

    Best tire, in my opinion, bar none. Blows away the Michelin, Metz, Dunlop by a wide margin -- especially in wet.

    Radials available for front & rear: Avon AV91 & AV92 Cobra Chrome Tire | Dennis Kirk

    $164 for the front 120/70-21
    $214 for the rear 180/60-16

    2620E876-F559-480E-8448-1488C74EC916.jpeg I just installed the AV 91 on my new 21” wheel...top notch!!

    I’ve had these on a few other bikes previously owned and have always been a fan.

    No problems yet with them? No quams about mix-matching bias/radial?
