Radial vs Bias ???
I know there is other spots for this but I wanted to hear from Stratoliner Roadliner Peeps. I am ready for a MC Front tire on my Bike I went through 2 tires on the rear and on my third getting about 7k - 8k per rear. I replaced my rear tire this time with a General Altimax HP Darkside tire. For the hatters ( I know I know heard it all... I love the Darkside tire.) This is about the front. Now I need my front replaced original. It was of course the 130 70R 18. Looking at the tires I was ready for the Michelin Commander II but see it is Bias. My bike came with a Radial tire on the front and I have a Radial on the rear Darkside. DO I go Radial on the Front again or go with the Michelin Commander II. My ride style is Cruising but do play on the back roads some but I would not call myself aggressive. I put about 8k a year on my bike in about a 7 month riding season. We get all kinds of Weather and Temps here so consider that when recommending. Yes I ride all season till they salt the roads but of course Upstate NY it's limited from Nov - March.
I want to hear from those who have MC tires on the rear... too
So what do you guys recommend... Lets hear what you ride and why.. Thanks... Please lets not get into Darkside basing leave that to a different site... Let me hear about your front tire and why... Thanks...
