When I placed the Storms on my LT, it made the LT feel and behave more like a sportbike than a tourer. It was twitchy and had quicker responces like a sportbike. I can see how someone who is a cruiser or a touring rider may think that the tire is making them weave or stray when going in a straight line.
I would imagine the narrow contact patch is what makes the difference.
The plus side to the Avons is the sticky feel when completely leaned over.
The down side is the low milage that and aggressive rider can acquire with the Storms.
I am back on ME880.
I need more than 2K out of a set of tires. The roads here are very abraisive and lots of patch work. I don't ride in the rain and the Metz stick just fine on dry gritty roads.
I am trying to teach myself to ride slower on the LT, to help prolong tire life.
