Need 1100GS tires changed in Bellingham, cheap. Where?

Ive got tires for my GS and will take the wheels off, I just need the old swapped out for new. Where in the 'Ham will do it on the cheap? I usually do it myself, but dont feel like fighting them for 2 hrs in the shop tonight. Wasn't there a place around a while ago that was doing them for $15 a tire if you brought them the wheels off of the bike? Thanks.

Get in touch with Ken at Adventure Machines. Cheap enough to forget how much I paid and a great dude.

Gordy at wings did tires when i lived there, nice guy and was reasonable as well. Support the local guy. Might look up Cycle Therapy on Kentucky St. as well, another stand up guy!

I would second Tim at Cycle Therapy. But might want to give him a call first, as he's typically crazy busy in the summer months.

Tim is booked up at Cycle Therapy til the end of the month, at least. But give him a call maybe he can squeeze in what you need. He's a great guy.

Wings is also a top choice.

Also check out BBRP on State street

My wife called Wings and they wont touch it unless it was bought from them. Some cursory searches on the net reveal the same thing about Cycle Therapy. BBRP was booked or we probably would have went there just because of all of the great reviews he gets across all the forums.

She did however call Biker's Oasis which is on the Guide just north of Bellingham. They voluntarily stayed open late and took care of me for a very reasonable price. Customer service sure seems to be lacking at quite a few businesses these days (I'm not just pointing the finger at MC shops here) and IMO they went above and beyond and earned a new customer in the process. I cant reccomend them enough. They are more cruiser focused, but do carry quite a bit of fluids (Amsoil) if you need some and would rather support mom and pop. Just throwin it out there.
