I love the fact that these tires bite into the road surface and let me corner my Road King like a sport bike. Unfortunately, the tires don't hold up, as the front tire started to cup at about 10,000 km, and the rear match was bald in the centre, although the edge of the tire told me I was literally running on the edge! They stick well, but with the softness comes no longevity. For regular cruising, something more durable would be better, but if ya ride hard, they are fantastic!

I am in the process of putting on my second set of Avon Storms. At first I was a little put off by them because they just didn't quite have the feel of my previous "dry only" tires in the dry. In the wet they were remarkable. Really good cornering and braking confidence. And the mileage was amazing. In 45 years on motorcycles this is the first time I have gotten 12,000 miles out of a set of tires. And the rear still looks pretty good (the front wore down first).

These tires should be oem on every bike. They handle like on rails. It's like riding a different machine. Great compound. Good price. Fast delivery. Can't say enough good things about these avons I put on front and back!

fitted on my Dragstar 1100 classic, from the moment I set off the road grip was like riding on sticky glue, the low speed front end wobble has gone, comparing the grip the AV71 has about 2thirds to 3qtrs tyre grip just love this tyre

10,000 miles on a KTM 640 Adventure. I had over 220 lbs on it most of the time. Did great on the highway, gravel roads. Not for wet grass or mud.

Installed on my Hondas NX650. I like the feel of this tire, grips well on twisty the roads. Can't tell about threat life as there are pretty new and haven't put much miles on them yet. Limited riding on wet roads but felt fine. Like others have reported, it feels like either there is a flat spot or that the tire is not quite set properly on the rim even-though I had it installed by a local motorcycle shop ! At slow speed I can feel it by it is not noticeable at higher speed 1?
