    Damn! That is BAD news. Avon have long been my favoured tyre - particularly for my British bikes - and, as a West Country company, very important for the regional economy.

    Guess I should start stockpiling now - with my annual mileages (and age!) a few pairs of appropriate sizes will probably see me out!

    A real shame, I have used Avon tyres since the 80s :(

    Guess I should hang my head in shame, I did use Avons in my earlier biking years but Metzeler have been my tyre of choice in recent years. Sorry Avon. :pensive:

    I think it's just the UK production that is going, not the brand ;)

    Used to put Avon road runners on my RD 350 in the 90's. Thought they were good sticky tyres. Never good to see a factory close.

    Man I'm hoping they are still going to be making the spirit tires. I had hopes of getting a set for my bonneville. Kinda explains why I can't find them in the size need anywhere.

    Avon tyres are still being produced, just not at that site ;)
