Dumb tire question

I got a tube type TKC front tire for our family's new to us XCountry. Do these bikes normally ride on tubeless tires? If so, can I run a tube type TKC without a tube? Do I just use a tube with this tire? What is the best way to proceed?
Thanks!

August, did your bike come with a Motorcycle Owner's Manual?

Great O'B. I saw you got ahead of me.
Did you get a chance to install It?

I'm interested in getting one of these, so will have to read through over 500 pages to get up to speed. Now, time to pour a drink and sit down!

Cheers JB, I'll check it out. What are the implications getting it re-registered in the uk? Is that something they will take care of, or is it a simple job for me to do?

Err - Belfast is in the UK, wasn't that what the Troubles were all about

Actually I used to have an Ulster plated Ducati back in the 'seventies - I even got the odd pull from the Bill!

As Simon says

Belfast is part of the UK, just ride on NI plates

Fly over, have a ride around the Antrim coast (beautiful) and ride it home via Belfast to Cainryan ferry

You can do the Galloway forest too, on the way home

You know what I mean! I called the dealer today, and the bike has NO service history, other than the first service, so I'm out. I also enquired about another one, and that has no service book, and no history.

Very nice, Tim. I've found one today, just thrashing a deal out in the morning.
