Avon Cobras

I have just replaced the OEM Dunlops on my 950 Midnight Star with Avon Cobras and what a difference. The bike handled well enough on the Dunlops but the fact that they were still good after 8500 miles tells me they were quite a hard compound, not good for slippy winter roads in Britain.

After the Cobras were fitted the handling seems lighter and the bike rolls into corners more readily. I have had good results with Avons on different makes of bikes over a number of years and am looking forward to using my bike when I have run them in properly.
