People have been happy with the Avon Roadrider. They make a universal tire that will work front or rear, but is listed as a rear tire. Takes a little longer to break in, but worth it.

Any other ones I;ve seen those mentioned before. The sites I've seen for the universal dont have them in 130/70 or 140/70 though

rear MC tire on front VTX 1800 C

Post  jcperform on Mon Mar 05, 2012 7:16 am

Just changed my front 140 70 18 bias bridgestone BT 45r with 33,000 miles,..(starting to cup) with another one. Loved it. The rear 205 65 16 Hydroedge has
38,000 miles,...still has .170" of tread left. BTW I run 40 psi front and 36 psi read for best handling and high speed. I always know tire pressure is low
if I get a slow weave over 100 MPH. LOL
