Hello everyone, (Help!)
I have a '95 SE and I haul almost everything I own behind me in a '92 camper/trailer. I put 30k miles on the bike in the last year, at least 1/3 of the time hauling the camper. I'm on my third set of tires and I'm tired of having to replace them every few months. Most of my riding is flat, and I'm not a speed demon in the curves, though moderate speed is fun. I want to go dark, but after reading, and reading, I'm more confused than when I started, oddly enough. I want a run flat (can't afford to go into a ditch again - once is enough) that is stable in curves and is reliable. I know everyone has differing ideas, and most of the posts I've found about what tires are usable are old. Anyone have new information about what tire would be good in my situation? I'm riding 500 miles this week to visit family and will need to change the tire there. (Small town.)
What I'd like to see is your concise list of CT (sizes) that you KNOW, and perhaps a rating first to last? Is that doable?
Thanks in advance for your help.
