I need to put new tires on when I get the bike road worthy. My hero is the tortoise not the hare. I will never ride over 90 and most likely never over 80. I would usually ride below 70. The better for enjoying seeing things while riding. So, the primary requirement is safe riding up to at least 80mph with good all around performance handling, braking, cornering. Next would be longevity and last would be price/cost.
So, not knowing anything about such things, someone said something about different tires for a new current liter touring bike and a 35 year old liter touring bike. To me it seems they'd be similar and take the same tires but who knows. So, what are the best tires for a 1978 R100/7?
