    Thanks for the BIG help with Google!

    I would never send you to my local Honda shop for tires, they are a rip off, but would instead send you to the KTM shop. They will install tires on any bike and do a quicker, cheaper, overall better job than the Big Red place.

    Get the jist of my original question?

    Let me rephrase my question. Any body have experience with places good/bad to get tires changed in Boise.

    So Guaglione, do you have any experience with Big Twin. Oh yeah where is thong.
    Thanks

    Big Twin is just off the freeway and easy to find. They do a good job and are doing a friends tire tomorrow, after he removes the rim. Tim at Happy Trails may be able to help, he is not open on Sat., as is Big Twin.

    The guys at Big Twin might not be too happy if you bring your own tires. I've had them do it for me but they don't like it.........I wonder why? :dunno

    I've also gotten the "we don't normally mount tires that you didn't buy here" line from Big Twin. They did mount them for me (TKC's on a GS). Don't remember what it cost...

    I like working with the folks at Happy Trails, but have not had any tires mounted there.

    I think either place will do a good job.

    Sorry, I was on forum autopilot, so I didn't get the jist. I have no experience with either, but it seems others have.

    Where is thong? Hopefully bunched up on the floor by the foot of my bed.
