    Is there anywhere in Dawson City that I could ship a set of tires to? I'm going to be heading through there and don't really want to lug two spares from Colorado all the way up there

    thanks

    Last reasonable place for bike service is Whitehorse. I would do the switch there...unless you're doing it yourself in which case one of the local motels will hold your package until your arrival.

    The owner of the down town hotel in Dawson city is a rider and hosted the D2D ride you could send them to him shouldn't be a problem but remember you will have to mount them your self there are no motorcycle place's there.:deal

    Thanks for the info. No problem mounting them myself, just want to cut down on weight for the ride up.

    Plenty of bike-friendly spots in Yukon.
    Visit http://www.rideyukon.com/index.html

    I have contacted 3 bike dealers in Yukon for the same reason (ordering tires).
    There is a HD dealership, a Yamaha dealer and a Honda dealer. They will all pre-order and mount tires (except for the HD dealer, as they prefer not to work on other brands, but told me so very politely!)

    The last time I was up there the Honda dealer in Whitehorse carried tires for the GS. They will change them for you while you wait. Really nice bunch of people working there.
