Round 2 on my Concours

This is the second rear to the same front I bought back in October 08. I put 17k miles on them and the rear was to the cords. All in all, I would HIGHLY recommend these tires. They work well on the heavy Concours and give you good mileage and handling.

True greatness for the money

My last am 26 gt nearly 13 thousand miles. It offered great wet and dry traction. It was nearly impossible to spin. I've tried several brands of tires and never gotten over 5 thousand miles. This tire handles great on flat roads as well as in the twisties.

Grip, Mileage and Cost -- A winner in all categories

Grip, Mileage and Cost -- A winner in all categories. I have these tires mounted on a Honda CB-1 in stock sizes. I was skeptical because of Avon's billing as a commuter tire. My skepticism has gone completely unfounded. Where many of the people who use this tire use as "something cheap that fits," I'm the complete opposite. I spent a weekend with these tires in the mountains of N. Carolina at what would be considered a 9/10ths street pace. Knee dragging on NC-181 and TN-421 through Shady Valley left no question in my mind of this tire's grip. The next day we spent riding around in the rain. Repeated attempts to break the rear tire loose on wet pavement turned up nothing but grip. I can't say what these would be like on the race track, but that's not really the purpose of this tire. To top it all off, they look brand new after 1000 miles of duty. No flat-spotting whatever. You won't be disappointed. To the folks with sidewall cracks... My rear tire has no signs of anything untoward. The front tire *does* have what looks like checking on the sidewalls, but it's right on the surface of the rubber, and it rubs right off with my thumb. Not sure if it develops into something else, but as of now, it's not a concern.

This is a great rear tire for vintage bikes.

I love this tire. It's a much better rear tire than the RoadRunner, which was the stock tire on my Royal Enfield 500 Bullet. It doesn't look as classic as a RoadRunner, but the bike rolls smoother and corners a whole lot better. The difference was very noticeable. Not sure how long the tire will last, as I haven't had it very long, but my bike is light, and the tire is well engineered, so it should last a good long time. Your price was a good $20 lower than anywhere else on the internet. I like the free shipping. Thanks.

Avon AM26 Review

So far so good. I have them on a 30 yr old Honda CBX Six and they perform very well. Only have a thousand miles or so on them but so far, in all types of riding, I have no complaints.

Roadrunner AM26

Put them on my 1993 750 Nighthawk and noticed an immediate improvement. They seem to literally stick to the road. Overall ride is much smoother also...

Excellent tires.

I really like these tires, very sticky and feels stable no matter what. I'll keep putting Avon Road Riders on my bike, that's for sure.

Front Tire for my Honda PC

Only have about 100 miles on it. So far very happy with the handling. Like it better than my Dunlop.

Avon AM 26 130/70/17

I have a set of these on a ninja 500 for 11 months. With 9,000 miles I have no complaints, they do what tires are supposed to do. I often push the limits of traction at 80 mph on off ramps with confident feel. I get 58 MPG, highway. I don't like to ride in rain but I am not so scared with these tires any more with unintended tested in wet cornering and stopping with no slippage. I am super satisfied.

I bought another!

Good traction in all conditions (haven't tried in snow). 2000-2500 miles on front and rear on another bike. Little sign of wear, although exhibit some cosmetic checking. All and all very satisfied to this point. That's why I bought another RoadRider.

great tire, would recommend to anyone

I bought these to replace a set of older tires on my BMW R100S what a difference. Feels like a new bike. Great traction, dry or wet. I Rode to work this morning in pouring rain, ran perfect. You have run them at a little higher pressure than stock tires pressures. Runs great single or two up.

These tires are the third set of tires I’ve had on my bike. I ride a 79 GS 550. I’ve had them for about 12 months and have put roughly 11,000 miles on them. I ride everyday rain or shine. I recommend these tires to anyone. They’re great in any condition.

Much better tire than the Metz lasertec

I will buy these next time I need tires again. Great improvement from LaserTec in mileage and performance.
