I have made further research and apparently No not all motorcycle tyres are radials. WIth the exception of Michelen, all tyres on the market for the 1500 are bias belted tyres, basically a biefed up cross ply. We all live & learn:)
Interesting info Dick. I wonder if they are crossply because of the weight. I know crossply tyres for cars (before they were done away with) were capable of carrying lots of weight. They were not suited to modern cars (late 50s on) as cars were getting lighter and crossplys had them hopping all over the place. Radials are more suited for modern lighter cars.
