    Hello all

    Recently moved to BC, Canada from the UK and own a KTM SE. Have done a bit of online searching and these guys http://www.canadasmotorcycle.ca so far are the cheapest place to get dirt tyres for it. Before I go ahead and place my order I wondered if there is any secret, amazing, local place to get them that I have not heard of, either online or walk in off the street.

    Many apologies if you are bored/sick and tyred (:lol3) of threads on tyres. I know what I'm after, just looking for a good place to source them.

    Many thanks all in advance! :clap

    You can check out Gnarly Parts http://www.gnarlyparts.ca/index.php?cPath=5978 located right there in BC, pretty reasonable prices also or you can try across the border shops online. Sometimes you can find a good deal on DS Tires at your local dealers if you phone around. All depends on what exactly your looking for and who has what in stock and how long it's been there.

    I'm purchased gear and tires from all 3, good experiences with every one.

    www.dualsportplus.com is also very good.

    Cheers - but I'm not a fan of TKC's. I'm after a 908 rear and Mt21. 908 rear isn't ideal but it will last the ride down and still be pretty darn good in everything except the worst mud.....if there is any I'll get though it somehow! :rofl

    Hell yeah, let's get together for a ride once the snow is gone up high on the big island. Myself and 4 buddies are leaving for DV on the 22nd and riding from the 25th to the 29th, we cancelled plans for the rally as the rest of the boys want to hit Vegas instead. We're gonna set up a base camp at Panamint, look for the big red 4x4 van and come for a beer or 10.

    Sounds like a plan! I'll come visit when there :freaky. So you no riding with any of the groups? I fancy seeing the area and have signed up to a few of the advanced/intermediate rides. Planning on making the trip down as scenic as possible too - any tips before I plan it?

    Nice, look forward to meeting you. We had this trip planned before we knew about the rally then found out about it but with trying to coordinate four guys schedules and wants the rally had to get axed so we'll just do our own thing. All I know is we're gonna hug the coast on the way down and bee line it on the way back. I'm obviously doing the unthinkable and hauling down, you riding down?

    Did I miss it!!! Where are you getting your tires???
    ( I go through a lot of tires with 6 bikes on the go and I find DSP has a good price, great service and fast turn- around)
