Avon Gripsters - BigDaddy
Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
Pros: Great rain tire, long lasting
Cons: Center wears faster than outside on rear
So far, I've had two sets of Gripsters on my 2008 KLR650 and I love them. Most of my riding is on the street, with a few jaunts off -road. I will be installing another new set next year before my 7500 mile round trip to Alaska. The set that I am running now has 5K on the rear and 10K on the front. I believe that I still have at least 2K miles left on them before they need replacement. The only complaint that I have is that the center portion of the rear tire wears quicker than the sides and most of my riding is in the twisties. It would be nice if they ran a harder compound down the center. Otherwise, these tires are great in the rain. With wet roads, I am totally confident in my cornering and never felt these tires slide. I will continue to run Avon Gripsters on my bike as long as I own it.
