    Its time to replace the factory OE front tire on my Kawasaki Vulcan
    800 A model, an 80/90 x 21. The first time I replaced it I was forced
    to go back with the OE tire because my dealer said Bridgestone was the
    only maker of the size. I don't like the Bridgestone much, can anyone
    recommend an alternative tire. I have searched the internet but can't
    seem to find another brand in that size.
