We look forward to providing educational information, tire products and more in support of the PSI mission."

Through this unique program, Avon Motorcycle Tyres will host educational seminars for PSI instructors and students each semester, and will provide supportive educational information for the PSI staff to be used in the training program.

Avon will also provide a number of tires for use in the classroom that will include valuable information related to tire selection, mounting, balancing, diagnostics and more, as well as proper dyno-testing techniques.
