Is anyone out there running one of these on the rear of a GL 1800 yet?

Strange that the Exedra isn't available in the original 180/60-16 size anymore. The 180/70-16 would give you a bit larger diameter (less rpm on the highway) but I see it has a lower load rating. Guess it depends on if you ride two up or haul a lot of gear (I'm guilty on both counts). My last Exedra rear was getting pretty flat in the middle after less than 8000 miles of touring. I could say OOHH don't do that, it's not the right size...... but what do I know. I've gone to the Darkside!

Thinking a 200 would be a bit wide for clearance.
I changed over to the 180/70R16 and love the way it handles. Also the speed/odometer is almost dead on.

The GL1800 is a crotch rocket on Steroids.
