Looking for decent price on tires

I'm assuming cause our dollar is in the shitter, tire prices have risen dramatically.

Anyone find anywhere with decent prices? I've looked at Avicious Cycle, Dual Sport Plus and Canada's Motorcycle.

Any other options?

I just now googled 'motorcycle tire avon roadrider 130 80 17' and got 'Canada's Motorcycle" I see it's now 165 to my door, last year I did the exact same thing and got that tire to my door for under 150 I recall.

The U.S. Dollar has driven prices up.
Did you check with Dual Sport Plus?

Second thumbs up for MX1 Canada and the Mitas tires. I ran an E-09 Dakar all last season including racing the Desert 100, a few weekend slab trips, and lots of various dual sporting.

Only dealt with them once but G. Bourke in New Brunswick has always been a good source here on the east coast.

If I still had every dollar I spent on motorbikes I would be a richer man but a poorer person.

Canada Motorcycle

Over the past few years I've been having excellent mail order results from Canada's Motorcycle.

Royal Distributing. I have no experience but my buddy tells me they have great prices. I've used Canadian Motorcycle before and like other great results. Not sure about price but service has been really good and price has been comparable.

I've been using Pirelli Scorpion on my 990. I've been happy with them. The last one I got was from Canadas' Motorcycle, but they no longer carry it. Last price was $145.00. Dual Sport Plus has them for $174.00. Royal Dist only carries street and dirt, not much dual sport.

I ride 80/20 street/dirt. Those Mitas look good= $150! How do they wear? How are they in the wet?
