      Comments about Avon AM26 Roadrider Motorcycle Tire:

      I installed the RoadRider on my 2006 Victory 8 Ball in May, 2008, as a replacement for the stock Dunlop, which was shot at 9,105 miles. I then did a 6,000 mile cross country; rode the Blue Ridge Parkway, and the Tail of the Dragon, and currently have 24,469 miles on the bike; over 15k miles on this tire. The only reason for replacement now is fine cracks inside the tread; the tire still has more than 1/3 tread left.

      Good so far...

      By Bhaktirider

      from Campbell, CA

      Comments about Avon AM26 Roadrider Motorcycle Tire:

      I haven't been able to ride much yet since getting these on my Bonneville T100, but they are worn in now. I haven't cornered very hard with them yet, so I can't comment on their grip compared to the stock Metzelers, but one thing I have noticed that I'm not terribly happy about is that the front gets its path upset a bit by freeway rain grooves; that's why I limited my rating to four stars. I didn't get the Bonneville to ride on the freeway, though, so it's not the end of the world.

      Service and delivery comments:

      1) You had the best price I found for the tires I wanted to try.

      2) The discount for AMA members

            Thank you for your question. Its not recommended to run a rear tire as a front application. The shape of the tire can adversly affect the handling and traction of the motorcycle. Below is a link to the Avon Cobra AV71/AV2 Tires which are avialable in the sizes needed for your bike:

            A:

            Thank you for your question. The first number of the tire size specifies the width. 120/90-18 is 120 millimeters wide. The 100/90-18 is 100 millimeters wide. Now to find the convert the metric size to inches you divide the size by 25.4. ( example 120 divided by 25.4 equals 4.72 inches.) Almost 4 3/4".

            A:

            Good question! A 3.25 would be equal to 100/90, whether changing the size of your tire will work for you is something we cannot make an assement on and is based on clearance space between the width and height of the tire. We recommend consulting with a local technician on sizing before ordering. 100=width 90=aspect ratio or profile (100 to a 110 would be 10mms wider adding 5mms to each side between fork and sidewall of tire).

          I have a 1988 Kawasaki Ninja 750 and I am looking for a good tire that will last a while with good performance and cornering. These tires seem like a good fit but I want to be sure I am buying the right tires for my bike. Although I am more of a casual rider, I would still like a tire that can keep up with the potential speed and agility of a Kawasaki. Would these tires be the way to go? Thanks!
