guess that smart phone has operator failure and you don't have a app for the Internet.
Yes it makes me mad that guys like you are to lazy to search the net for what you want. We spend our time helping you cause your lazy.
You don't even take the time to say what you want Cobra, Venom or Venom x
There are all kinds of net stores that sell Avon's why don't you look. :mad:

Vj -no disrespect to you, you are right about lots of info... but the internet is really like INFO OVERLOAD nowadays and there is so much crap out there to dig through its really overwhelming sometimes. I know because I have been looking for all kinds of bike stuff for months now and it is really frustrating... sometimes, its not laziness. Finding a FORUM like this where the people here have had experiences already is really helpful and what a forum is suppose to be about. Also the commraderie <s> of being all VIC people , there is some expectation to help people out.

Im selling alot of parts and more than willing to give people on here deals where the SMUCK on ebay may be just another profitier looking to buy my parts low and resell them high! ... Im not giving them the same deal, plus fees and charges and taxes... BS!

But in return Im also looking for the same deal from people when Im buying on here. So it works both ways.

Its all good in a place where people respect one another thumb up

Haha sorry man, not trying to piss off anyone, first off looking for a front cobra for my XC, I guess what im asking is has anyone had good luck with a certain vendor on ebay? Ive heard bad stories of some and dont want to add to that list. I like motorcycletire.com but the rear i got off ebay was like $30 cheaper and got to me faster.


Ptc if you wouldnt mind pming me with a price on your front especially i would like to see what you have.

Jake Wilson is who I got the cheapest price from,,, Dennis Kirk (which is a local MN store) matched them and I had the tires from Dennis Kirk overnight. DK has a great website and all you have to do is call customer service and they match prices. Really polite, helpful and easy to understand ladies help you out.

SO that is the tire you wanted???

These are great DRY weather tires and are nice and sticky on heated pavement and perfect for running the twisties in any dry conditions.

I would NOT recommend these tire for use (and I dont believe they are all weather rated) on WET ROADS. And be very careful in even in damp conditions because thats what took me out on my XC.

They do not hold on Wet roads in hard turning requirements and mine was at a pretty low speed. Great SUMMER TIRES! thumb up

My personal experience (and many others via reviews) couldn't disagree more. They are sticky in ALL situations, but at the expense of long tread life. I had them on my HD and was AMAZED how well they stuck to the road regardless of weather. Some roads are hazardous in the rain with any MC tire. Maybe that was your case.
I wasn't happy with the E3s in the wet, so I'm swapping them out at less than 4K miles.

OP, glad you found the tire reasonable

Well my broken ribs and punctured lung will just have to agree to disagree with your personal experience on that one... just trying to give some good advice here, not trying to steal any manufactures' reputation or anything.... ;)

Ive learned my lesson with them and you dont need to tell this ol' boy twice!

Sorry but yes i got one at dk. And for me the e3 would slide around corners in the rain, it would even engage my abs at stops on wet roads. I put the rear avon on and huge difference, it will grip on wet corners and push my front e3.

New avon cobra mounted, like i thought, though not as drastic as the rear, this one measures 1" circumference larger then the dunlop and just over 1/2" diameter taller then the dunlop.
