Excellent tire!

I just ordered my 2nd set of Avon Venom. Got 22k miles out of the first set. Then went to a Bridgestone, only got about 8k out of it. Cost about the same. From now on, only Avon will go on my bikes.

Avon AM42 Rear Tire

I previously had Avons on my sport tourer. I needed a new tire on my Venture. There was mixed reviews on the Avons. Some loved them and had no problems. And then many had sidewall cracking issues. I decided to try them. It has been 3 months and about 2000 miles and both sides of the sidewall around the entire tire are cracked. The manufacture date was only 6 months or so prior to me buying it so the tire is roughly a year old.

Replaced the OEM tires with these and at a little over 9K miles on them, they still looked brand new before I traded my bike in! Great tire and would buy this brand again!

Looks good, rides great, no cupping. 2005 Road King with a hopped up motor. 110 TQ, 108HP. Pulling hard on straights will wear it out in center core. 5 star tire!
