Avon Venom X (AM41 and AM42)

I read on here a lot about the Metz tires, but I had heard from a few mechanics and read on the internet where the Avon Venom X were comparable to the Metz for performance and wear, but quieter and slightly cheaper. I ended up getting 110/90 for the front and 170/80's for the rear. Definately fatter tires. The mech who put them on was concerned about fitting the back tire in. He had to deflate it, but got it in with just enough clearance.
I've only ridden on them for about 150 miles (barely broken in), but so far they are definately quieter than the stocks and handling has greatly improved.
We'll see how they are after a few more miles on them.
