    I ran the Avons on my old 94 Fatty and never had any worries handling wise, you don't get big km's out of them, being a softer compound tyre, but that's the trade off.
    The only thing I ever noticed was, once or twice when I had to really jump on the brakes for an emergency stop, you had no real indication the back wheel had locked until the rear end started wagging its tail, just a really silent slide. Always cupped the rear tyre, never the front, and tried pressures all over the place - suspect my rear suspension may have been to firm but being a Softail its a pain in the arse so had it where it felt best solo and with the bride on.

    Thanks for the feedback Doc, I know what you mean about the silent slide, similar thing just the other week, with a dunlop on the back. I put an Avon on the front a couple of months ago and am very happy with it, don't expect to get long life, but I'll cop that. I got about 8-9k out of the dunlop, that was on the front and it was shit. 
    Thanks again

    +1 for Avons on the fat bob

    I'm halfway through my second set. I estimate I got about 17,000km out of the pair and replaced them well before the wear markers.

    I previoulsy ran commander II's on my old dyna which got amazing mileage but were a little skatey in the wet.

    The OEM fat Bob dunlops were hands down the worst tyre i've ever used in at least half a million kilometres.

     That's decent mileage Steve

    Real good mileage, I'd be rapt with that from soft compound tires
    Thanks Steve
