I rode Venoms for a long time and still race with race compound Avon's but for the street I like the Dunlop TT's. They are great in the rain, they stick great when there warm, and they have better sizes for my street applications. Your limited with sizes with Avon. If you plan on making a little hot rod that handles better. I'd put the 18 on the front. Also I'm running a skinnier set of tyres this year racing cause more than just width is weight, how fast you ride in the corners, and the right tyre for the rim. You can put a 4.00 x 18 on a WM2 on the front and I can bet you you'll never reach the edge of the tyre with out crashing. Plus there's nothing worse than seeing a guy with a sporty bike and he's noly using $75 of his $175 tyre. That's my imput, you may want to ask Joe or JD. They'll know better on which tyres let go at which speeds.

got to agree, wider is not necessarily better. just get as wide as you need. for the street I'd stick with close to stock sizes. love the avons but I've never raced on anything else. the sprint compound super venom (street tire) is sticky enough, I didn't like it much in the rain. but regardless that's what I run on my 550. rear is 130/70/18, front is 110/90/18, both bigger than stock but again I wouldn't say they're much better than stock sizes. only running that size because the front was on one of my 350f racebikes and was much bigger than necessary so I put it on my street bike. the rear I got from Joe. sad too, he was also only using about $75 of his $120 tire. <img src=icon_smile_wink.gif border=0 align=middle>
AM22 Front, AM23 Rear, both SC, but not Venoms. Different tyre all together and still to much of a tyre for the 350.

30 over 55 is 85. Also Boston, San Diego, Pheonix, and Trenton are pretty big cities as far as I'm concerned. Don't you live in a town where someone's mom and sister could be the same person. Criminal speeding is a felony. Felonies you can go to jail for (locked up). 30mph over any speed limit is a felony. You can't get locked up for just speeding. I also used to run for United Van Lines and probably have spent a few hours from here to florida more than the average poopie pants living in bumpkinsville. You have a big valve.

Joe your from Texas right?

I saw the inside - outside pass. It was close. I'd like to see Marshall run that bike in LWSV.

My new 200 will beat your bike at Summit this year and hopefully at VIR. I'm definately going to try and make all the races listed on the c-racer schedule.

Mike being from Trenton does make sense.

Too many hours at the bike shop. When I take a break from what I'm doing I jump on the board to see what interesting things you have to say. I've spent the last four days at the shop preparing the Honda. Well I guess its not really preparing when your starting from scratch. Its more like building the Honda.

Joe............. I don't look at the keys! Maybe I should. I was just tired, I had been there too long. I finished the subfrmae for the new tail section that holds the new cam corder. Nifty stuff although I really hate spending a million hours on something that doesn't make you go faster.
