While the bodywork was being mocked up, the Avon tires showed up. Instead of sticking with the stock wheels and tires, we decided to add a little more rubber and metal between the fork legs and swingarm, and stepped up to 18 inches front and back. Up front we ordered a Venom AM41 130/70-18 ($208.95) and out back we picked up a Venom AM42 150/70-18 ($242.95). The Venom line is geared toward heavyweight cruisers to provide long mileage, low noise, and excellent traction in all conditions with its aggressive tread design. The multiarc tread design on the Venoms is countered for light, neutral turning and steady cornering. All of these characteristics will greatly benefit Adam as he logs mile after mile.
