Great Tire

This tire has lasted over twice as long as the stock Dunlop 404, but on my Yamaha Royal Star Venture it creates a wobble when I am cornering. It isn't out of control, but it does require attention and a firm hand. I also have to be aware of grooves in the road, especially where a painted line has been ground off or at a deteriorated seam. Again, I've never felt out of control, but it makes it more interesting than it should be.

Not a long term tire

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!

Awesome!!

I love these tires. When I first got my '05 VTX1800n it had Dunlops which were great and lasted many miles, then I went with Shinkos when I had a small budget to work with and they were terrible. I tried the Avon Cobra this time and am now a lifetime customer. I love them! These tires have awesome traction and I can just feel them dig into the road when I hit that throttle. It feels great and comfortable while cornering. I got caught in a storm the other day, high winds, rain and hail. These tires handled everything beautifully. Traction was perfect. I couldn't ask more of a tire for my bike and I highly recommend them. The only reason I gave a 4 star for tread life is because I just got these so I really can't form an opinion on that yet.

Avon Cobra

I have less than a month on the new Avon Cobra wheels so temper my enthusiasm. I had Dunlops and Metzelers before these and neither gave me the level of confidence I have in the corners like the Avons do. I am able to take them at a significantly quicker pace now than I remember on the others. No rain experience yet and can't comment on tread life for a few more years.

Exceeds Expectation

I bought the set of Cobras on a co-workers recommendation, AND because of the affordable price at Motorcycle Superstore. These tires have an awesome appearance - both the tread pattern and the snakeskin-textured sidewall. My mechanic said they mounted easily and ran true on the balancer. First ride, I was caught off guard by how quickly they steered. Of course new tires handle better than old tires - but compared to my previous tires when new, these are VERY nice handling tires. They transition smoothly side to side with light input. They are agile enough to allow me to change my line in fast sweepers, but it is not often necessary, as they go where you point them. In city riding, they make the front of my VTX1800 feel so much lighter - like a different motorcycle. They have a noticeably more comfortable ride than my previous tires and rain grooves practically disappear. I have not had them long enough to comment on wet traction, tar snakes, or tread life, but based on how well they do everything else, I am confident they will handle all situations. I was ready to trade in my motorcycle for a new one. Now it feels like it has new life. I think I'll keep it for a while longer.

This is a super tire. It has excellent wet and dry traction, hugs the corners, and is very stable. Can't feel the grooves in the road like i did with other tires. I definitely recommend it.

Good tire

This tire seems to be really good on my Road King .I like the feel in the corners and did not notice any change on wet roads . ( heavy rain ) . Not enough miles to judge tread life but so far would use again .

Best Tire, even in rain

I think I found my tire of choice. I got these for my VTX 1800. These tires are grippy, quiet, and extremely smooth. The bike felt really different after putting these on. I got trapped out in the rain one day and I actually felt more at ease with these on because I could tell they were really stable in the rain. I'm gonna buy these again and at this site is where I found the best price for them.

Avon's are the best all around tire you can buy

I have been using Avon front and rear tires for ten years now on 3 different bikes and have found them to be the best tire for traction and not bad for tire wear also . I have tried many tires in my 45 years of riding 14 different bikes and have found Avon radials to be the best I have used .

AV71 COBRA

Have been using Avon tires sense 1990, from Roadrunner's to Cobra's. Will not even try another Motorcycle tire. Just put a new front because my old one had 16,000+ miles. No cupping, splitig, cracking, or anything wrong. Just wanted a NEW tire up front. Mybetter t old tire handled han some newer front tires. My ride is an 03 Fat Boy running around South Louisiana. Not the best roads or weather. I do believe in checking the air, a lot.

The performance of this tire is awesome with better stability and a feeling of control than with Metzeler that I replaced. I've had the tire for less than1000 miles so I don't know about the tread life. I'm very pleased with the look, and feel.
