Red face Help - Tire needed!

I am relaying this for one of our Nor Wet gang who is down in your neck of the woods folks. If anyone might have a tire for an LT lying around, please let us know.

Help - Tire Needed
Hi folks. We are in Leggett, CA and lost a chunk of Oskar's rear tire. We are having trouble finding a rear tire for the LT. Does anyone know where we might come up with a usable tire? Our Internet connection is not very good. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.

Dan

Re: Help - Tire needed!

I am 230 miles & 5 hours south from Legget but I've got spare used take-off tires hanging in the barn. Also have a used tire already mounted on a spare rear rim (fits my 02).
A & S BMW in Roseville will have a tire but there is probably a bike shop closer that might, you'll have to try in the morning to find one locally or have A&S ship one overnight to you or haul your wheel to them.

Good Luck

Re: Help - Tire needed!

We can Pony Express Doug's tire. I'm free tomorrow, Wednesday, and can deliver it from Vacaville to Leggett. But I'll need a beer for my horse.

Re: Help - Tire needed!

I got four rear tires... and three fronts... all used and all have tread to get you where you need to go. I have a set of new Avon 2's front and rear... Tire machine is ground mounted and not transportable right now, otherwise I'd be on the road to you... If'n you can make north Sacto, I'll R&R... all at no charge... and you'll get a beer or a cuppa Joe guaranteed to put you at ease...

Hope I can help...

Tire Found

Thanks for the offers to help. We lucked out and found a tire in Ukiah which is only 67 miles from us, so we are set. Thanks again!

Tom, This list is kind of like our own "Anonymous" book, and typing a few keystrokes is no big effort. I know there are plenty of us out there that may find ourselves in need of assistance some time, so we all contribute whatever we can.

But Tks for the comment anyway!
