Coming to Texas, need help with tire install
I plan to leave in a week or so heading for Mexico on my Versys. This puts me in Texas around the end of the January. I want to cross the border, (at Presidio) with new tars. I don't have too many good experiences with buying tires on a long road trip. On the forum for my ST1300 we have a RAN (rider assistance network) list where members offer help for travelers with maintenance or other issues. I would like to order the tires from the vendor of my choice, ship em to Texas and install the tires myself or take the wheels to a shop and have them put on. If anyone has the tools and the time, I can do all the hard work. I would also buy any required cerveza or other agreed upon compensation.
Please PM me if you can help or know of others who may be able to do this.
