M109R - Great, grippy tire, lasts reasonably well

Comments On May 26, 2015:First, my bike is a VZR1800 / M109R, not an S50, but that was not an available option. The 250/40VR-18 is a great tire. Very grippy, and no high speed shakes like the Dunlop Elite III has. I've never run a Metzler to compare it to, but I understand that these outwear the Metzler's significantly.
I got two full seasons out of this tire. It's still not worn out, but I am very close to the wear bars and I am going on a couple of trips, so I am replacing it just to be safe.
I run balancing beads in my tires, and with them, there is zero vibration. All in all, I think this is a great tire for the M109R. I know a lot of people like the fattest tire they can buy that fits properly on a stock rim, and this is not the tire if you want that. The Elite III 250 is the fattest, followed by the Metzler ME880 260, and this brings up the rear. Still, I like this one better than the Dunlop, especially if the roads are wet.
I am rating this 4 stars because it does not wear as well as the Elite III, but it's a better tire in every other way. Recommended.

An Improvement Over Stock

Comments On Mar 23, 2015:My previous tire was a Dunlop 240/40; the Avon 250 fits with no problems, looks better and handles better. The only question at this point is the durability. I have a friend who has been running this tire on his 2009 Muscle and he has had better durability with this than stock, so I expect similar results.

Crazy Lean Angels Found Here

Comments On Dec 17, 2014:I'm getting ready to install my 3rd set of Venom's on my GL1800. If you want the best grip and handling in wet or dry these tires are the bomb. I ride aggressively in the twisties and fast and have no complaints at all. For tire life, I see 7 to 10k on the rear and about 15k on the front before replacement is needed. Tire pressure is always set to 41 PSI and checked routinely. These hoops are silent when corning and allow you to flick the big girl in transition corners like no other. If your concern is strictly long mileage....go elsewhere.

Hydro planes so bad, didn't last.

Comments On Jul 25, 2014:I bought this tire because it was suppose to get more milage than Dunlop... it didn't and it hydro planed in the rain so bad that even at 40MPH I was still feeling the bike slide around. Too scary for me!
