I've purchased and received new tires for my V, and will mount them on their respective rims in a couple of days.
I decided on Avon Storm 2 Ultra's for both the front and rear wheels. I didn't go with a Tourance on the rear because of my ongoing experience with the OEM tires. I've now got almost 3,500 miles on them and it looks like I might be able to accumulate 6,000, or more, if I were to keep using them. This is amazing to me, as I've never gotten more than about 4,000 miles on a set of OEM tires previously, regardless of model of bike. Primarily, I think this is because the V is lighter, has a lower hp rating and less torque, than any bike I've owned in many years. Just another reason to love the V.....especially with the high cost of tires today.
I had a good experience with the previous version of the Storm 2 Ultra, so that weighed heavily when making my final choice. Hopefully, it's a good one. If not, I'll just have to curtail my riding while in NC.....not a pleasant prospect.
