Excellent tires for vintage bike

I put a pair of these RoadRiders on a '77 CB750K. I ride the bike pretty hard, and have taken it on two 300mi trips. I've never had a tire slip in corners, holds well in rain, and wears very well. I've got about 5,000 miles on this set and both the front and rear are good to go for many more miles. No flat spots or squaring off. Only negative: rain grooves on the interstate make the bike feel like it's floating. Otherwise a solid tire.

AM26 Review from a long time user

I have used many pairs of these over 100K miles on various bikes including my Triumph Thruxton, W650, and even my R100RS. In my opinion there are better tires if you want to spend a bit more, such as the Michelin Pilot Active. These tires wear unevenly over the tread pattern when pushed hard, especially the rear. I suspect this may be from my riding style, leaning hard on the throttle while deep in corners. I have had two rear tires form cracks in the center grove, but not to the point where I replace them immediately. Traction is good, and they remain stable until you get near triple digits, or until the wear pattern becomes too uneven. I get between 3-5K miles out of a rear, 4-7k out of a front before they are ready to switch out. I continue to use them primarily because I think they are about the best bang for the buck out there, and I will not use "cheap" tires.

A strong second best.

Had a few of these on vintage 'sport' bikes over the years. I ride med-hard (by street standards). The Avons last well (4,500-7,000 miles) and handle and stick fairly well. Steering is neutral and dry grip is good. Rain groves on the Freeway do make the tires hunt around quite a bit. On the rare occasion I get out in the wet, I ride like an old lady so I have no comment on wet-traction. Overall I prefer Bridgestone BT45s for my smaller tire bikes. They don't look completely "correct" but the Bridgestones seem just a little more sure-footed and they last a little longer. I buy the Avons for sizes that aren't available in the BT45s.

Avon AM26 - 120/90-18

The AM26 is the tire I will keep buying. I have put 100k miles on a BMW R80 over the past 30 years. That’s a lot of tires. I generally use 2 rears to 1 front, and the AM26 looks to be the same. AM26’s track and hold – wet or dry – as well as any of the stickiest tires I’ve run, and I’ve run a lot, in the search for THE tire. I have over 6k on the current AM26 rear. I think it will go about 6,700 before it’s done. For comparison, my average rear tire mileage in this price range is about 4.5-5k. A Shinko 230 ( a fine tire), at half the price, will go 3-3.5k, but it will square off badly, in the process. The AM26 hasn’t done that, it’s worn in the center, but holds a curved profile – and, has gone twice the distance. Once a tire brand and model satisfies your surface traction requirements, it all comes down to price and the tire changing frequency you’re willing to endure. The Avon AM26 is, to date, the optimal tire for my needs – a good balance of traction with longevity.

Avon Roadrider AM26 Rear

Solid choice -- great ride! Now I've got a solid ride feeling with each turn and the feels more nimble on the straights and with small adjustments ( lane splitting etc). Glad I stayed with the Avon's -- hope the 2nd rear will wear so that I've be able to replace both tires on the next round. Treadlife was 12K for my 1st Avon AM26 - hoping for more this time!

Good tire so far

Just put this tire on my 09 shadow 750. Very impressed with cornering. Feels like it just floats in the corners and very smooth.

Put these on my vintage Kawasaki triple, work well and bike handles nicely. Too early to tell on tire wear.....

Trike Front Tire

I wanted to try the AM-26 as affront tire on my Goldwing TRIKE. Other than being noisy under braking, this tire will probably last 25 to 30,000 miles. I have 15,000 miles now and still have a lot more miles to go.

Using as front tire

I have a 110/80x18 (also a front/rear though not listed as such here, it has the arrows for both) and am running it on a Honda ST1100. Grips well in the dry, and is okay in the rain. Not used it long enough to fully estimate the life but it looks almost new after 1534 miles in Texas heat.

This tire is great. I drive my bike to and from work on curving roads and I have no problem grinding pegs in each turn with these tires.
