    No gripes from me

    Bought this tire for my '83 Suzuki GS450 and I'm very satisfied. Great product at a great price- what else is there to say?

    avon am26 roadrider rear tire

    Worked great from the first ride on it and stuck to the road good. Had about a week of rain and it still stuck to the road. No complaints about this tire and would buy another one. Not sure about the tread life only got about 400 miles on it, but it still looks like the day I got it.

    Great value

    Ran a set of these on my 08 KTM 990 Adventure for a trip out west. They rode and handled very well. I load up pretty heavy for traveling. 45L Touratech panniers and a KTM 46L top case full of food, water, spares, gear, etc.. Tires cornered briskly and predictably thru the twisties in CO and UT. Front went about 15K and I ended up going thru 2 rears which is reasonable mileage! Profile of the front tire that makes it handle on the road so well makes it a handful in sand! All in all a really good tire if you keep it where it belongs!

    Great grip, poor life span

    I have these tires on my KTM 525. They offer excellent grip in both wet and dry weather, and never slip. Unfortunately, the rear tire is shot after 1800 miles. The front looks brand new after the same distance. I definitely did not get the life out of the rear tire that was suggested by previous reviews.

    Best tire for my Hyosung GT250

    I've had the opportunity to use this tire before and the product never disappoints. The price could be better though.

    Best bias-ply out there!

    I have Avon Roadriders on my Ninja/EX 500 and these tires are better than the other bias-plys I've tried. I put 9k miles on my rear on this last set. I ride in all conditions here in Central Texas: rain, wind, cold, 100+ degrees; city, highway, twistys, track. I'm not putting anything else on this bike.

    Avon road rider tire

    These are very nice tires. Well matched and very grippy. If you ride bmw r65 ls then try these English beauties and you'll throw rocks at your 'other' tires.

    Wet grip terrible. Long life.

    This tire seems to have very little wet grip. Great if you like spinning your wheels. Not so great if you like staying on the road. On the plus side tire wear seems good.

    Go To Tire for Small Bikes

    This is the go-to tire for my Ninja 500R. My first rear went for 11,000 miles, I'm still on my first front now at 14,000 miles. I ride very aggressively too. I ride year round, 20 degrees F to 110 degrees F, rain or shine, these tires perform admirable in all conditions. The perfect tire for real world riding.

    Really noisy and follows rain grooves badly

    I have had these tires on my 84 900 Ninja for about 200 miles and they are extremely noisy (loud whine) at anything over 50 mph. They seem to have great traction on the dry but on the interstate they will follow rain grooves like crazy and make it very scary to ride until you get out of the grooves.

    Never thought a big tourer could be "nimble"...

    After fitting the RoadRider tires to both front and rear on my '92 BMW K75RT, I'm amazed at how agile this bike has become. These tires are confidence-inspiring all the way to the sidewall, which isn't something you'd usually say about touring tires, that's more a sportbike/racing tire trait! I barely have 400 miles on them since they were fitted, so can't speak to wear or mileage ratings yet.

    sidewall and tread groove cracking

    These handle great and good traction. Sidewall started cracking right away and rear tire was shot at 6000 miles with cracking in the tread grooves.

    Sidewalls cracking within 150 miles- second set same thing

    I bought brand new AM26 for my 1984 Honda Sabre V65. Within 300 miles, severe sidewall cracking on front and rear. Date code was within 9 months of purchase. I got a warranty replacement, date code within 3 months of purchase. Within 150 miles, severe sidewall cracking on front and rear. Bike is always covered when not riding. Neighbor has Vmax with Avon Venons that do not exhibit this problem. Anyone saying sidewall cracking is ok is someone to stay away from.
