Avon AV80 3D Ultra Sport Rear Tires 3D Ultra Sport gives sportbike riders the perfect compromise between grip and durability, offering a large stable footprint, fast warm-up times and high-performance, silica-rich multi-compound, making it a perfect choice for the road. All versions of 3D Ultra offer advanced features. 3D Sipes are cut into the tread of the tyres and these feature interlocking, three-dimensional points which improve stability and grip, limiting tread flex and allowing the tire to warm-up in less time. A new design of wind-on-belt material is used in the construction of the rear tires, which helps to increase the footprint size at all lean angles, improving grip. Triple Extrusion or TE tread compound places durable rubber in the center of the tire to give good mileage and softer compound on the shoulders of the tire producing increased grip where you need it most in the corners. A third compound below binds both together and helps keep the tire cooler, so it lasts longer. Features: Outstanding handling characteristics Large footprint at extreme lean angles High performance single and multi-compound Super Rich Silica (SRS) treads enhance wet grip Ideal for high performance bikes 3D siping with interlocking three dimensional points to improve stability and grip, limit tread ex,and allow the tire to warm up quickly

Ordered this tire to replace a competitor's tire that was showing cord much sooner than I expected. I've owned Avon touring products before, so was looking forward to how they ride.
Wow.
Even at moderately-extreme lean angles, I can tell these tires have the needed grip. The bike tracks like it's on a guide rail, no wander on grooved pavement. Haven't had them on long enough to comment on tread wear or longevity, but so far, I like. A lot.

I purchased the SR10 along with a pair of Midland GMRS/FRS radios, so that I can communicate with the Wife more easily than via phone calls (she doesn't ride, she drives the car). There's also been an issue with group rides - out of the 10 people that show up for a ride, 2 have Scala Riders, a couple have Autocomms, and the rest are either using CB's or FRS. There's also the issue with range with helmet intercoms - if there's more than a few hundred yards between lead and sweep, you're back to relaying hand signals through the group.
The SR10 takes care of that. As long as people are using the same type of radio and the same channel, it no longer matters what kind of headset everyone has. It also allows communication with truckers via CB, and the phone is still paired. It also allows a second hardwired sound source (GPS or radar detector) to be used.
I've tested mine in the garage, and it both transmits and receives perfectly. Still waiting on my RKA tankbag (built to-order) that'll mount all of this, but once it arrives, the bike will not only be a sport-tour machine, but a rolling comm center as well.
Yes, I recommend this product.
