Has anyone used, or has information on a 200/60 tire performance on the Goldwing?

thanks for the thread., I'm wondering what fits on the front of my 1200, my tire size (that was/is) on the front isn't readily available in the tire outlets, etc... I have had (since purchase) a 130-90-16 on the front, and a 150-90-15 on the rear... {currently running ME 880's}....

If you have a 205 rear you must be a darksider...hey, that sound like a red-neck joke format...



Metz, Stone and Avon make 200/60



The only 140front I ever tried was a bias. It made the steering heavier, which is understandable. I took it off shortly thereof because I did not like the entire combo I had: CT rear and bias front (140). But if I would have given this set up a chance...nah!...I did'nt like it.



Lots of darksiders run bias front. However, my impression from their own posts is that the Wingabego chews up those frontal bias like band of carpenter bees on honey foam.

I have a bias front tire and like it a lot, the first one lasted 50% longer than any of the radials, just put a new one on 2000 moles ago. It does cup and sing but sure does handle and ride good.
