New Motorcycle Tires

In preparation for my upcoming 4000+ mile trip, I decided to have a new set of tires installed.  My old tires probably would have lasted another 2,000 miles or so, but I don’t want to have to stop somewhere along the trip and have it done.  My father told me a long time ago, he always made sure he kept good tires on his car since they’re so important.  Motorcycles even more so with only 2 wheels!


For anyone in the Phoenix, AZ area, I recommend this place, “Mototire“.  This is the second time I’ve used them.  Fast and friendly service.


I had an appointment at 9:00 am, and the tires were installed in about 45 minutes.  I had the original tires put back on, Dunlap.  Same tires I would have got at the dealer, except about $50 cheaper.  Plus as a bonus, Dunlap has a $50 rebate going on right now on the purchase and install of a set.


A whole lot of tread going on here!


This was parked out front!


Here’s the business card for Mototire.  This is NOT a paid endorsement or anything like that, I’m just sharing the information for the business that in my opinion provides a good service at a fair price.

All Bikes Salvage Yard in Rye, Arizona

Here’s a couple photos of a salvage yard I discovered just South of Payson along Highway 87 in Rye, AZ.  This place has so many different bikes, you’ll have a hard time just walking around.  Everything from motorcycles, bicycles, tricycles, wagons, snow mobiles, go carts, tires, etc.  I bet you could even find a unicycle in there somewhere! Simply amazing.  They were closed when I stopped by.  It would have been interesting to take a walk around in here. Who know what I would have find.

Finally Getting the new Tires Installed

Off with the old and on with the new.  I finally got my tires replaced today.  For anyone in the Phoenix area, this shop ( Mototire) was recommended to me by a co-worker and they did a fine job.  No appointment necessary, and it only took about an hour.  Time to start riding again!
