    Anyone could recommend a good spot between Houston and New Orleans for me to have a change of tires, oil and a few others stuff . I'm on a cross country trip and need some things to be taking care off.
    Thanks in advance

    Try:

    http://www.mikescyclektm.com/ in Baton Rouge.

    I've ordered gobs of parts from them by mail and they've always provided great help.

    I don't know if they work on big KTMs but I'd give them a try.

    Good Luck.

    I just moved from New Orleans. There are no good KTM shops in that entire area. Sorry & good luck.

    If I were in your shoes, I would hit up a dealership that has the oil you want and shoes, ask them if you could change the oil and tires ask them if they charge to balance with a shoe (tire purchase) in the parking lot and do it there. Did that with Colo Sprngs dealership, didn't charge me for the balance since I purchased the tires there. Save yourself the cash, you will still be supporting a local shop with the oil and tire purchase but save yourself the cash and you will know it's done right instead of someone who doesn't know you're bike like you do. Remember it's your ass on the line, not theirs!
