Ok, so I had to order a MC tire for the summer. My looking and checking sizes and things i came up with this for a replacement for a 130/80-16 GL1200 front tire. I would like a second person to look at it as well and give me your honest opinion as well. Coker makes a 5.00-16 sport tire
Agree with Dennis on the front tire. There are those who are called double dark side, but this is where a rear MC tire is used as the front tire. Mostly done by the 1800 crowd. I only did the CT on the rear of my 1800 and in doing this increased the longevity of the standard front MC tire considerably.
He's talking about a mileage warranty. I may be mistaken, but I think with any such warranty, the install date and vehicle mileage have to be documented by the tire installer, AKA authorized tire dealer.
Said dealer probably won't mount a tire on a vehicle said tire was not designed for.
Plus; using a flat profile tire on the front of a bike is a really bad idea.
I've never had to return one, These are the folks that sell the front and rear tires for Drag/Funny cars. The Skinny's are not DOT tires, we ran them on Top fuel. Never ran any DOT approved tires. Im just looking to get more Miles for my money, and it need to be at least rated for 130.
Yea, 84.00 looks like. I ordered a Shinko for a quick fix, it should be here Monday. I've had good luck with them on my KZ1000, I've always trusted Dunlaps until this one.. The other bugging thing is the grooved surface, usually in the drive lane here so I stay in the hammer lane usually. Only way to beat that is compounds or tire surface. But that looks like a good option. Thanks Dennis, hope all is well in AZ.
I just paid my Registration for 1993 GL 1500, $141.00. Year. It just keeps going up, I have friends that have left because of all the cost to live here. This guy Newsom is crazy and making the state worse each year. You know it's the little things like the gas tax we pay and the registration and...
I think it has more to do with your physical health, than it does with age.

I'm thinking of replacing the Fog/Daytime Running lights (not sure which they really are) on my GL1800 with brighter LED types. The current ones are either OEM lights on it now or possibly Show Chrome. There seems to be some different new ones out there and I don't want to break the bank.
