I see they still have both Venoms and Cobras in the GL1500 size and load rating. Did you see somewhere that they are discontinuing the Venoms for GL1500?

From what I understand, looking at the British site, they are dropping the Venom name and offering the Cobra in either a Radial or Bias tire. They now list Goldwing 1500 sizes under Cobra.

I have been buying my tires from these folks. Have always found a very good price and great customer service.. Plus fast delivery.

Enjoy the ride. They are all good, just some better than others.
