Hi everyone.
I'm new to the BSAOC; I joined last September when I returned to BSA ownership. This is my first forum post.
Back in the early 70s (1971) I bought a new BSA B25SS "Gold Star" and ran it on Avon Road Runner (square) tyres.
The bike went through many changes and engines (350 B40, 400 Victor etc) before I stripped and boxed it.
Last September, having spent 30 odd years with German/Japanese marques, I returned to the fold and bought a 72 B50SS fitted with one good front tyre (Avon Roadrunner) and one balding rear Roadrunner. Handling is awful; round front profile, square rear, so whilst the bike is stripped ready for respray, I had local bike emporium in Wolverhampton fit a new Avon ROADRIDER tyre. It might look out of place on my Goldie, but I am told that it will improve the handling.
My question:
Has anyone fitted Roadriders to their BSAs? How do you rate them?

My steed will be back on the road in March/April so I have a while to wait before finding out if I've been fleeced...

Many thanks.
