I have a 2005 Bullet it came with Avon's. It handles so good that I lift the footpeg on easy slow intersection turns. This bike needs ground clearance not better tires .............................But If your sidewalls are cracking please buy something!
I'm not suggesting there is anything wrong with the Avon Speedmasters from a handling perspective - I was content with them until I noticed the sidewalls cracking. It's just that the Avon Roadriders were about the same price as the old ones and they do feel noticeably better to me. Like I said, though, it's not that the stock tires seemed bad (handling wise).Eamon
