Here's a picture of DCarmicheal's and my S (front). I've still got the winter windsheild on mine.

hEY sTEMPY!,

How do you find the Conti Force tyre? I bought Metzler M-1's and the hold like glue but I don't think I'll ever use them to the edge, and they are going to wear quickly. The Conti's are inexpensive & if they wear well & stick O.K. I might get a pair or two.

Andrew,
not to be argumentative or anything but that front tyre looks like it has been mounted backwards. The tread pattern looks directional.
It shouldn't make a difference in the dry, but in the wet it wouldn't draw the water away as it should.
Then again, i may be wrong.

Oily,

Don't bother with the Contis, they give no feedback, not very grippy and wear out in 2500 miles. They are CHEAP tyres.

Saintly,

Checked arrow and it's pointing the right way.

Don't need to take a pillion as Mrs has her own bike which was also loaded up. We like to take a few luxury items with us, like half of the kitchen (but not the sink) and most of the bedroom.

'79 Bonneville T-140 Bought it from dealer going out of business in 1980. Dunstall 2-1-2 w/ Decible Silencers. I never registered it. Still starts on first kick (what's an electric starter?) even w/ dead battery. I'd swap it for a Norton Commando in similar condition, or else I have to sell it to make some tuition payments, my twins are college seniors this coming year.
