tires for a R80RT

Both my brother and Dad have been riding beemers for years and my pop is getting up there in age.

My brother rides to hard for my Dad these day so I'm cleaning up one of the leftovers from there little fleet of bikes (they can't seem to get rid of the old ones when they upgrade)

Anyway I'm cleaning up an R80RT, doing a little glass and paint,tuneup,and tires and I need some advice on what kind and where to get some new tires.
