Radial or Bias Ply Tires for R1200 GSW
I have a 2014 1200 GSW and have been running Michelin Anakee 3's.
The Anakee 3's have been a GREAT road tire but I've not been impressed with them once off the tarmac.
I'm interested the new Mitas E-07+ tires. These tires are bias ply.
When I inquired about these tires for my wethead (from one large online seller), they discouraged me from running bias tires as they say the bike was engineered for a radial tire, and my handling characteristics would be greatly altered.
I inquired with another large online seller, the told me the feedback they have that a bias ply tire would be perfectly fine on my wethead. They did mention that because of the harder carcass, they would be more difficult to spoon on.
I am looking for feed back from riders who have run bias ply tires on their wethead, specifically the new Mitas E-70+ tires.
Also wondering if the lugs are so big that they would rub on my MAM Mudsling?
