Avon Cobras are the best. IMHO

Had the bike at the dealership for some warranty work and to get some new tires put on. First i want to say thanks to the guys at Patriot Harley Davidson Service for taking care of my bike for me. Now about the tires, i had about 17k on the Dunlop tire but if you had read my other thread my rear tire started howling when i made banking turns. I had a set of Venoms on my 2007 RK and loved them so i figured i would give the Cobras a try. Now mind you i put about 100 miles on them today but i have to say that i should have gotten rid of the Dunlops when i first got the bike 5k miles ago. These tire are just so much smoother and the handling is just awesome. They take the imperfection in the roads so much better than stock. I just cant say enough about them. I would suggest giving them a try if you are in the market for new rubber. Just my 2 cents.

I’ve been looking at those since they released the 19 I need this year. I hated the Dunlop’s and put Michelin scorchers on at my last tire change, better but not as good as I think they could be.
