Excellent advice. I researched front tire options as I was not happy with the handling on the stock sized Metzler that was on the bike. Based on the advice of some respected members here, I decided to experiment with the 130. I knew that pushing the Big Girl hard through the twisties, especially with my big ass on it , was not an option. I ended up taking the 130 off before its time and installed a 140 Avon Cobra. Pretty happy with it.There are not many 130s that have the load rating we need. If you ride to limit a 130 could become dangerous when the big beast gets to pushing hard in a corner and loads up that front sidewall. But if you are mature and never loose control you may be ok with a 67 which alot of 130s are. Easier for a 17in than the 16.s, just food for thought on load and speed rating.
