Avon Venom AM42 Rear Tire
Written by wbpc800 on 4/13/2011 at 04:35 am

Jared,

I ran one of those off my PC. Here are the pics:

Sure liked that tire when I put it on! Great rain traction. Definitely better
than the worn dunlop it replaced -- as good as the Metzlers i used to run on my
Sliverwing.

Wish I could have got your pricing. Ended up about $200 mounted and balanced for
me.

The pic was at about 13K and it was shot. Ok, I know some would have run it a
bit further but it definitely was getting squirrely and I no longer wanted to
ride on it.

Just finished burning my second tank of gas this season. Speedo still not fixed
but must have at least 13K, probably closer to 20 on the BFG. I smiled all day
on my 200 mile ride today. Tire still looks like new!

I really liked the Avon. Doubt that anyone trying one would have any problem
with it compared to any MC tire that would fit the PC. Frankly I would be
surprised if anyone (Other than perhaps an 89 with potential rubbing issues)
would have anything bad to say about it.

I am just thankful that others before me have paved the way and I took the crazy
route;-) Don't see myself ever going back.

Wade

    Jared, Avon makes a tire in the PC front size, 120/80-17. It is a Roadrider model listed as "universal" meaning it is good on front or rear. Some of the tire stores still have it listed as a rear. The older stock will only have rear

      Fred, When I said "they don't make a front tire in or even near the PC800 front tire size" I meant in the Venom line. I do remember you saying earlier that you have the 120/80-17 Avon Roadrider on the front and that you liked it

        Jared, I have about 3000 miles on My Roadrider front but John Hanford has 7000 or 8000 miles and it looks like no wear and the traction is great, very sticky. Down here with the abrasive roads we only get 5000 or 6000 miles from Dunlops and
