So, I'll give this one a try. Makes a little bit of noise but if I wasn't trying to hear it I wouldn't. Not fully scrubbed in but feels good.
The few tyre places I ventured to in Sydney a while back refused to do this for me so I stuck MT60s on again. Shame as I'd have liked to give the Avons a go.The only issue with the Avon Trailrider series is that is that they don't make a matching !8" tyre for the front. Avon do, however, make a rear 110/80 - 18 which may be used on the rear provided it is mounted the opposite way to the directional arrows iaw the following advice.....Tires Directional Arrows Explained By Avon Tyres
Suppose they have to cover themselves for liability reasons. I've discussed this with my local tyre bloke and he is willing to fit the Trailrider on the front, but I'm in no hurry as the worn Pirelli front seems to be working well with the almost new rear Trailrider.The few tyre places I ventyred to in Sydney a while back refused to do this for me so I stuck MT60s on again.

I don't really trust an insurance company should I be unlucky enough to need one to take that view. I'm a fairly low mileage per year rider anyway and the MT60s didn't worry me at all, they just didn't last so long.Since Avon is OK with running the 110-80 rear Trailrider on the front per the correct rotation, I don't think there would be any liability concerns.
