    Stranded in beautiful Prince George BC, headed to Dawson City for D2D BMW 1100GS front tire developed a bulge and we don't feel it is safe to continue. Today is Sunday June 17th. The MC dealers do not open until Tuesday. Used, slightly used almost new, new Tourance (preferably) are you willing to spare? Have $$$$. It will also help if you have spoons. Thanks

    If you need a cheap (free) place to pitch a tent while you sort out tire issues, let me know. I'm just west of town. For moto tire shopping, the Suzuki shop (NR Motors 250-563-8891 ) I think is the only dealer open on Monday. Give them a shout and ask to talk to Garry. Hopefully he has something that might fit the bill for you. If you need any other local info, drop me a PM, I'd be glad to help.

    Cheers!

    Ah... right. I should know that, too - and take advantage of it. The 520EXC needs some TLC :(

    Seems like NR Motorsports is open on Mondays and they helped us locate a tire from a local rider. NR allowed us to use their tools and facility to change the tire. Back on the road to Dawson City for the D2D tomorrow
