    Hi guys, I made it up to San Diego and I am staying in La Jolla/UTC. Tomorrow the 20th of March I'll be looking for a new set of tyres + tubes + balance.
    Does anybody know which is a good motorcycle shop to get this done?
    Cheers

    +1 on C&D Cycle center.
    If they don't work out Cycle Parts West in El Cajon is always a good backup.

    Another alternative is Clairemont Cycle Supply. Jamie is at the corner of Clairemont Mesa Blvd. and Convoy which is not too far from you. 858-571-5531

    Great, I had this californian friend who helped me calling several bike shop and ended up finding this Kenda Dual Sport, 190 bucks for the brand new set + 1 set of tubes + mounting and balancing.

    I had kenda in bolivia once I didn't have a good feeling so for the price I paid I was kinda not convinced but I put already 3200 miles so far and I am in Alaska. The are cheap, they are great on asphalt, good on gravel, ok on snow and ok on wet asphalt!

    If they made the 140 for the rear I would always buy them!
