My user review of the latest Avon Storm 3D-XM tire fitted to a BMW K1200LT. The tire handled a bent rim without going flat but wound up getting replaced due to premature wear. Please check out the video! :bmw:

Did you get a chance to try the rear tire? I've read another post about the rear tire being a bit squirrely at higher speeds.
I just bought one last week and getting ready to put it on my bike. Hope I didn't waste my money

In your review you state "I have managed to achieved an all new lean angle..."
Technically you are correct - "you" have a new lean angle. But generally speaking you infer that the tire is responsible. Not a very accurate review, as I, and I believe others, have managed to burn holes in that fairing with both Metzler and Avon Storm II's. In my case it was with newly installed Wilber suspension.
It's going to take more than that to convince me that the new tire is worth the purchase. But to be fair, I couldn't make it through the whole review. Tried 3 times.
