Noticed that Pirelli now has Angel GT 2 with certification for K1600 GA. Would be interested in experiences with the new tire.

Zip Ties

The heavy duty zip tie method is the easiest way to mount tire to rim.... You Tube has video...

I've seen it and I see no way a rear tire for our bike will compress like those on the videos enough.

If you have done it, please post a video because I can't compress the tire by hand like they do.
