Some have used radials on the rear and were happy with them, but it is generally not recommended on big cruisers because radials are not designed to handle the lateral stresses big cruisers put on the rear tire. Some mfg have put radials on the front and bias on the rear of some sport cruisers, but again, not in the same weight range as a 1600 and the bike geometries were designed for using radial tires in the front. Also, to never put radials on the rear and bias on the front was strongly recommended.
I thought about going radial for a while and I even asked for user experiences, but after doing a lot of study, I decided against using radials at all on my Voyager. I suggest you do some serious web searching before you go that route. Not many have used radials on big cruisers and no one who had managed to get full use out of a set of tires responded. I got a few "I got xxxx miles and liked them, but I got a nail before they were worn out" responses. That sent up some red flags for me, since that seemed to be a common failure, so I decided to do more research and found out what I said in the first paragraph.
