I thought I'd share the information provided to me by Avon. This information came via an exchange of emails.
The tire is the AVON AV71 130/70R18 both front and rear.

Driver weight = 250
Rider weight = XXX (not allowed to post)
Sometimes we pull a trailer.

Please provide recommended pressures for the following situations:
1 up - No trailer[Fahey, Sukoshi] 37-38 F 39-41 R
2 up - No trailer[Fahey, Sukoshi] 38-40 F 41-42
2 up - with trailer[Fahey, Sukoshi] 40-41 F 42-44 rear [Fahey, Sukoshi] Good rule of thumb, if you measure tires cold at say 40 and see more than a 10% increase when hot pressure is measured, tire is running too hot. Need to either slow down, lighten the load or add 1-2 pounds more air.
