Overall Rating: 5
Tire lasted: 5000-10000 miles
Would buy again: yes
For agressive riding, this tire is by far and away the best tire I have found for my Road Star. It sticks like glue in all situations, and the bike barely wiggles when hitting a wet spot in the middle of a sweeper. The Bridgestones that came with the bike were scary, the Dunlops an improvement and a good tire for leisurely cruising, and the Metzeler Marathon took handling to a new level, but the Avon Venom is in a class by itself. They are softer than the others, get less mileage as a result, and more expensive, but if you value your butt, this is the best way to go, hands down.
