Hello all
I have been off of my bike (cb350 g) for over 20 years.IT RUNS AGAIN!
Even though they look great, I should probably replace the tires.
I am looking at shinko 712. They are H rated, 4 ply, tubeless but the info says that they can be used with tubes. Looks like I can get the pair with tubes and rim strips for close to $120.
Does anyone have experience with these? I will not be racing (those days are gone :D), just relaxed rides in the country on mostly dry pavement. 45 degrees and warmer.

Any input is appreciated on other tires also.
Thanks!

Someone with personal experience will be along but I've read very good things here about that tire.

I run Shinkos and I don't think thereis a better value in motorcycle tires, though I'm dirt poor and not experiencesd as some. I mount them myself and I have heard it said the beads can be tough comparitively. IDK if it's true but they are not easy to munt. I run a 712 on the front I just got and aim to replace the rear with a 712 soon. For the money IDK if anyone beats it and I have heard no bad reviews outside of the beads being tough.

I have to take them to the Les Schwab to get it beaded up, but I've mounted a few. The cheap $8 motion pro tire irons do the job, but it takes some muscle too.

Thank you all very much. I think I will give them a shot.
With so many options now, I tend to make a bigger deal out of choosing than necessary. Now on to replacement mufflers..........
