Well for my 2 cents... I am currently riding 2 1200 Wings with CT... my 84 has over 6000 miles on it and my 87 almost 2000.... I am not a risk taker when it comes to my riding style... I ride to go from point A to point B comfortably, and safely... I ride on concrete, asphalt, gravel and grass... The tires in question are a BF Goodrich and a Nexen... what I can say without question is the BF Goodrich does work... BUT, because of the squared shoulder tread profile, the 84 wing will tend to travel in a straight line even during a turn...So this tire will be replaced with another style tire soon... my 87 wing running on the Nexen is really nice to ride... the rounded shoulder profile feels and handles more like a cycle tire... when I ride on gravel or grass there is much less bounce in the rear and more stability in heavy gravel... my wife enjoys less bumps and a smoother ride, this equals more ride time for us...
If you have any questions, I'll be happy to answer
