    Yes Avon has a Cobra tire made just for the wing. I'm sure the price has went up science I bought mine. Avon Cobras in all my searches have mostly positive things said about them like they sick well and are quite. The only thing I read negative is that they do not last as long as some others. So I think I'll stay with a tire that has great traction in wet and dry, runs quite, does not crack or chunk up, does not react to tar snakes, does not wander on cement or metal grating and balances out smooth as silk with little weight. Add that cost is low compared to some brands and I don't mind changing at 10 K or so. Numbers needed to get the Wing rubber:

    Quantity Product Unit Price Price
    1 Rear Cobra AV72 180/60HR-16 Blackwall Tire - 90000001418
    Part #: 544272 $139.88 $139.88
    1 Front Cobra AV71 130/70HR-18 Blackwall Tire - 90000001167
    Part #: 543337 $118.88 $118.88

    E3 and E4

    i just got the E4 on my bike today. Had the e3 and got 35000 kliks on them. Could have gone a few more thousand kliks on the E3's. The E3's cupped?? - do alot of tires do that?? i was told that our roads here are so bad that it contributes to the cupping.

    I will publicly say this because I have had 3 rear metzlers come apart.
    I personally think they are an inferior tire for a Hvy application.
    I am not behind the back, backstabber either, as I have stated my pain 10 times to the
    Honda vendor that sold them to me .
    Ignore is a word they have used on me a lot.

    These were on a Roadking.
    I have switched to Avon Cobras, and when the F6B I just bought gets tires it will get cobras also.
    Do as you wish.

    My riding is two-fold: take the super slabs to get to near where I want to be, then ride the twisties like I own them.
    The Dunlop E4 dual-compound has the best compromise for what I do.

    I like the 'Stones better in the rain/wet.

    I've not tried Metzler or Avons on Isleen.
    Cheers,

    Nothing wrong with that . Choice is what it's about. If you like a certain brand, go for it. I ride the excedras, too.
    They don't last as long as the car tires, I will agree to that, but they run okay, and seem to grip the road decently.
