    Wrong sizes.
    You will need 120/70 R19 and 170/60 R17

    One of the standard sports tyres from a few years ago.

    Possibly fit the R1200R/RS ? (of current BMWs)

    Good tyres, but don't expect much more than 3,000m out of the rear.

    Now - not sure how old these Pilot Road 2 are - great tyres, but they must have been out of production for around 5 yrs?? Had them on an R-1 before.

    Cheap Tourances, and could just be old German-made stock!

    Have had two sets on my RT. Decent modern tyres but the rear has squared off PDQ on both. I have done a fair amount of mway miles but not a huge %. Will be replacing with Metzelers methinks.

    Which ones? the Diablos?

    The PR2 were great tyres - I did two trackdays and many road miles with them on a Boxercup.
