This is the best tire for the money


Bought bike with bald tires. New tires made a terrific difference. not many miles on them yet but hopefully soon as spring is near.


put this tire on the rear and an AM41 21" 90/90on the front of a 02 Deuce,had 'em balanced by a good speed shop and WOW what a difference from dunlops. These stuck to the road like peanut butter on the roof of your mouth. My real test will be the shell rock roads of southFL and how these bad boys will wear.Best tires to date for ride and adhesion and about JPCycles: cant beat em , had these in 2 days and saved 30%over the shop that balanced em for me, cant beat JP, will be back when these wear out!!


Last Avon Cobra I got gave me 12,000 trouble free miles, on a bike that eats rear tires in 4-5k. very happy with the grip and durability of the Avon Venom, my Kingpin Tour (2007) loves the run on the road. All in all, service, delivery, quality of the purchase, JP Cycles makes for an excellent value! I will buy from them again.
