    Can someone suggest a bike shop in Calgary to get a set of Conti TKC-80's for my VStrom and a Dakar? Blackfoot Motorsports was suggested earlier in another thread, but they list everything but Continental on their website and no one is answering the phone for tires. There are 2 of us riding up from North Carolina this July and we'll need to change out our street tires around Calgary.

    Thanks...

    He's an enthusiast to boot. He led a group through Copper Canyon this Feb. and is thinking about running an "enduro" school for GS riders. He'll be a great source.

    Oh yeah... I'll put them at the top of the list. Wish we had a dual sport class in the eastern US.

    Keep trying at Blackfoot Motorsports. My Dad has always had good dealing with them and they took care of me whenever I needed something. Just make sure you stay current with your bike model. I think the older bikes scare the new kids around there.

    Jay Argyl Motors isthe only BMW dealer in Edmonton but they are often unreliable-so if your looking for tires book well ahead and check before you leave they the have what you need.

    Anderwerks is the "only" place to stop. Bring lots of them USA $$$, they have a lot more than just tires, like Touratech, Metzler, Jesse and a ton more. Check it out at www.anderwerks.com or give Dave at call at 403-277-4BMW.
    Live to ride...as long a it's a GS
