Help / advice near Roseburg

Just got a call from a buddy who is in your part of the world on a trip. He's had a tire failure, he's about to have the bike towed to Roseburg. We are looking for a tire (150-70 R17) He's riding a Triumph Explorer. At is point I know he's on his way home (Calgary area) and needs to stay moving to make his return to work.

Anyone in the area have a tire that will do the trick or can suggest the nearest place ? I will start looking in the Portland area to buy and have shipped but I can't do that till morning so I thought I give a shout out here.

I'm sure there is something in Roseburg, if not, Springfield Cycle Gear store would possibly have 1 today, if not they might point you in the right direction. Good luck finding a fix.

Cycle gear in Springfield has a tire that will do the job, but they won't ship, have to go through the web site to ship. Which doesn't do us a lot of good for having him rolling tomorrow morning

Ok, looks like right now the plan is to get towed in, try Roseburg for a tire, and if no luck send his riding partner up to Springfield to grab one from cycle gear tomorrow morning. Thanks for the help

Peterman, thank you for the offer. I think he's going to see of he can find something suitable in Roseburg first. He has a ride partner with him as well so I think he will be ok. You are the reason I love this place

Roseburg hasn't had a motorcycle shop for 3-4 years now, unless you count the freedom chopper garages here and there. Best bet is the Polaris shop downtown- good luck.

Nope, Papé CAT, Stihl saws I believe, they may have something in the back though, probably open Monday too; better bet than Polaris guys.

Well I'm the guy with the tire failure. A big thanks to buddy rob1313 to get the ball rolling. I googled a couple shops one being Big River Cycle. It says they open at 9:00 am. So I'll check them ASAP. If they don't have the size I need I see that cycle gear has a couple options for me. I'll purchase one and may just take you up on the delivery Peterman. Of course breakfast/lunch would be on me. Hopefully BRC or the Harley shop will change it to save me a little grief. Thanks to all that have offered a little insight into the area.
