It will fit the rim but not sure about inside the wheel well.
Call the tire place and see if you can change it.
It's not what you buy, it's what you build.

the recommended front tire for the 1200 is 130/90/16 so that tire is correct, 120 is not the right size. also watch that the tire is rated to carry the goldwing, mimimum is 67H
