Question

I am looking on getting new tires for my bike. I was looking at the Avon Azaro II supersport AV39 and AV40 size 120 70 ZR17 front and 190 50 ZR17 rear. Are these good tires and do they last? I have a Yoshimura slip-on right now and was wondering if I would gain anything from switching to a full Muzzy exhaust. Thanks for any help

Gee, sorry this one slipped through the cracks! Usually our staff of tire testing professionals will respond immediately to a customer query.
In case you haven't realized it yet, yes the Avon's are good, and no they won't last. I just tried a set on my VTR. Due to an order mixup I got the sport compound front and the supersport rear. After 2 track days and one street ride (600 miles total) the rear is bald all around and the front looks about 70% gone. Traction is excellent, and doesn't "go off" toward the end of it's life like 207's do.

Suck mean people!
