I think you`ll find the Avon a much nicer tyre on the front than the Metzeler. I had an R80 mono w/- sidecar many years ago and found the Block K on the front was too stiff which made the bike very skittish to steer. I then fitted an Avon Mk11 and there was a lot of improvement. The Mitas E07 and Heidenau K60 Scout are also good strong tyres if you can get them in the size you need.
