Great looking bike Ted!

Garry,

From another thread. Set up a mail drop across from Kingston. Pick up when you visit the Darkmeister.

I have been buying my tires in Canada, almost $500 for a set of Metzler Z6 in January for my R1200RT.

I just bought a set of Michelin Macadams for an airhead of mine from,
http://www.motorcycle-superstore.com/

$60 front tire, $73 rear with free shipping in US, so I had them sent to a mail drop in Port Huron, Michigan 1 hour away and a nice day for a ride. I had also purchased a set of tubes making the total just over $200 which allowed me to use a $20 dollar coupon. Total $181 and customs waved me though after declaring them.

A friend also ordered a set of Metzlers for his GSA from the same place for a total of $261 and it cost him $38 in taxes at the border.

If I stay with the Z6's they were $281 so I will definitely order from them again.

Michelin Macadam 50 come in 3.25/19 front and 4.00/18 rear. Metzler make a good tube to fit in the right sizes as well.

Let me know if you want the coupon code.
