***help!!***rear tire in fort myers area***

I need to call on the help of the stromtroopers in the Fort Myers area in Florida.

My dad and uncle are on their way from the northwest to Key West right now and are in East Texas. My dad is going to need a new tire by the time he gets to the Fort Myers area, or surrounding area.

The tire he needs is a Pirelli Scorpion MT90 140/80-18 M/C 70S tube type tire. (he rides a KTM if you're wondering)

I can do the calling around for availability, but I really need a recommendation of a place I can call and send them to on their way through.

Thank you all for your time and help!!

shut down over a year ago... just called...

i've also tried Sunsports, Superbikes, and Gulf Coast Motorcycles. All had the same answer, which is they could get the tire until next week nor had any tires in that size.

Anybody else got anything in that area?

If you want to, you can have the tire shipped from Dennis Kirk or whatever online supplier you like to my house in the Fort Lauderdale area. I can help him pull the wheel and take it to the local shop to be changed. The only exception is 6/17 through 6/23; I'll be out of town during that week.

Go hakafugu yourself.

No problem; I'm happy to help. For that matter, if he'll be there the week I'm out of town, I'll give him the garage code and he can have at it.

Awesome! Thanks again for your generosity. They are still riding at the moment but he will be calling me when they stop. He'll be in south Florida this weekend as long as they stay on route and plan.
