EDIT: Gawd I love the internet:

Tire sizes: Front Tire: 100/90-19 Rear Tire: 130/90-16

So now I can start shopping...

The 16" rear tire is the problem. If you had at least a 17" rear tire things would be much easier for you.

Im going to do some web searching though and see what can be found. If you get a chance grab a tape measure and check the widths of both the front and back tire. What is the difference between the two?
(If Im guessing right it should be just a fraction over one inch but Im not sure)

The reason I ask is because sometimes you have to try some crazy stuff just to see if it will work. I found these but Im not sure just how narrow you can go on that back rim:

If you do find something that will fit, your safe highway speed my be limited. I went from a high speed rated Dunlop tire to a low speed rated Avon so I never ride faster than about 70 mph just to be safe.
