Bikes that are used for long distance touring and could be hauling heavy loads need a tire specifically designed for the task – that tire is the Avon Venom. Special attention has been paid to the Venom’s tread pattern to ensure that it produces low noise levels, a critical quality if you’re going far
Thanks to its carcass construction and tread rubber formulation, the Venom is what’s known as a low-rolling resistance tire – this means it has long life characteristics and aids fuel consumption. The Venom is also designed to be very stable through corners and to give progressive (and therefore reassuring) turn-in
Because some cruisers and tourers carry bigger loads than others, the Venom is available in a range of reinforced sizes. And some of the Venom sizes are available with whitewalls (WWW = Wide White Wall, NWW = Narrow White Wall)
Unique sequential pattern produces and exceptionally quiet ride
Advanced casing technology for low rolling resistance, cooler running and high mileage
Multiarc tread contour for light, neutral turning and cornering stability
Also available with a narrow or wide whitewall design
H-rated for speeds up to 130 mph
V-rated for speeds up to 149 mph

I've had a Venom on the rear of my '99 V Star 1100 for about 18k not a typo miles and it looks like it'll go at least another thousand. Rides and handles well. No complaints at all. And I do a lot of 2-up riding with my wife. Great tire. Wish they had a size that would fit the front. I highly recommend this tire and will replace it with another. Couldn't be more pleased with it.
I have used the avon venom on my 2000- road king since replacing the original tires at 18000 miles the king has 95000 miles now and I won't run any other tire I like them that much I ride 2up 95 0f the time all over the country and yes I have gon through a few sets in my book they are top notch.
Hopefully they can help you find the right item and make the best decision.

Pros: Good tire at a good price.
The tire was delivered promtly after I ordered it. Got it mounted and balance without issue and it looks great. I don't have alot of miles on it yet but I like the performance so far. I have had the matching rear tire on my bike for a couple years and I like it so much I chose to match it when the front finally wore out. I have it on a 625 lb. VMax and my ride weight is about 175 so about 800lbs together for comparision. So there you have it. I like it and I recommend it,
