OK ..... I'll be a "canary" again.
Ordered one late last night
, $154.00 give or take ..... should be here in a few days, certainly in time to get it in place before our planned ride to the "Highland Maple Festival"
. Throw in a couple or 3 ozs. beads and be a good time to slip in some new pads, change fork oil & brk fluids.
I didn't go in blindly .... I have been interested in this tire for a good year "plus". There is a web site where they talk
about trike stuff (<<-->>) mostly
only and I have been following some other canaries and their experiences there. Expecting good things from it like a long wear with a smoother ride coupled alongside better steering (even better than what I have
..... and NO low speed "buzzzzzzz" in my handlebars.
Just some excerpts from postings .... I know to take them with some degree of suspicion / speculation.
Love the new Avon Trike Tire
dealer/installer told me a few weeks ago that MotorTrike had been running tests on this tire and has gotten in the 35,000 mile range
I put my Avon on awhile back and for the handling and ride if it lasts 10,000 miles I wont care. There is such a ride and handling difference between the Avon and the BT45 and MPA its like night and day.
7,617 right now and show NO wear, NO cupping, and still rides and handles like the day I put it on
little over 11,000 miles riding almost exclusively in the A**a**a* twisties which eats trike front tires. Bought another one because I'm so happy with the ride and handling of the Avon Cobra Trike tire (didn't say it was wore out)
