Default Avon Mk11 tires front and rear

Anyone love riding on Avon Mk ll rear tire 5.00X16" front and rear? I love the look of that tire and hope to put them on the front and rear of my daily rider. How sketchy can they be? There Avon's for god sake.

Thanks for the help BBM

I have a set on my Chief and they work real well, I have had no issues with them at all. They don't stick like modern radials on my Ducati but I never intended them to.

I have them on mine and they are great but as sumo said, don't expect modern performance (especially on a freeway)...
