Just wondering in case I'm in the middle of nowhere and they only have a bias ply Conti TCK80 for the rear. Hopefully the rear won't get too squirrelly.

But seriously, when the stock MT60s go I'll probably switch over to Angel GTs.
I don't know of any legal reason why you couldn't. Obviously if you had one fitted you wouldn't be trying to pass Valentino on the corners anyway and would be riding to the conditions. :)
FWIW the main reason manufacturers fit bias ply tyres to the front of ADV bikes is that bias ply tyres are less susceptible to sidewall punctures than radials and it is the front wheels that tend to hit sharp rocks and similar off road rather than the backs.

Appreciate the pics. Thinking about the making the swap to. 1100 stock front size of 120/80 18 isn’t available though. Did you go with 120/70’s or 110/80’s?
