    Yes, call Mike at the ABBEY (Friar Mike to the white courtesy phone)

    ABBEY 376-6919 and he is right down the road in Wasilla. Was at D2D.

    Give Mike a PM and see if he can sort you out Monday morning.

    Otherwise Alaska leather can probably hook you up w/ new tires. They're open Mondays, but they don't service bikes. (change your own oil)

    I believe all the Anchorage shops are open Tuesday...Saturday. So you're SOL come Monday AM. Which is why the Friar might be your best choice, especially given your current location.

    Hey Sander...give Friar Mike a call (he's the guy that was wearing the funky pants at D2D...) at The Abbey or Barb @ Alaska Leather. They'll both do you right.

    Glad to hear you made it back to Anchorage safely. Now the real fun begins!

    And the oil filter may be a problem, they didn't sell (AFAIK) the TTR 600 in the US. You might have to get creative...or maybe it's common to other bikes, or you brought some of your own.

    I think I have the right size rubber here for that.

    Maybe stick a compressor hose in the oil filter to clean it out. Gotta look close while you're doing this delicate operation.

    Hi all,

    tnx for the replies. I'm with Paul B. in Anchorage now.

    Yesterday i went to friar mike first, but nobody home (i should have called first i guess). Went to Alaskaleather, Barb wasn't there, but there was a nice set of Metzeler Karoos in my size.

    I'll go with these ones. And I have to go to the motorcycle shop to get me new oil. I carry a few spare oil filters, so that's not the problem.

    cheers,
    Sander
