I'll be in Cortez Colorado to start the COBDR on Labor Day - Sept. 7th, 2015. I'm wondering if there are any Stromtroopers who might be able to help me out?

I'd like to change my tires there in Cortez and also change my drive sprocket from 15 to 14. So need an impact air wrench and some assistance changing tires if possible. Maybe even be able to drop ship tires in advance? My cousin on a F800GS will be doing the same thing so there will be two of us.

Any troopers in the area who would like to help out, or can someone recommend a shop who changes tires without charging an arm and a leg?

I appreciate any help/advice offered.

I'm on the other side of the mountains from Cortez in Montrose. Not too far away, your welcome to ship your stuff here. There's also a shop in town that does tire changes for a reasonable price (Highland Cycles).
Keep me posted.

Thanks jdubyap, I appreciate the offer.

Unfortunately that won't work for me. I'll be coming in from southern Utah and will be really tight on time. Your location is too far north, though on the COBDR we will be riding close to Montrose. I keep hoping someone will post up, but maybe no one on here is in Cortez.

Anyone in the Bluff, UT area would also work. I know it's Labor Day weekend and most people probably have plans. Bike shops are closed, etc. Just thought I'd put it out there.

I'll probably just put on tires before I leave and deal with the fact that they will have 1K of pavement on them before heading into the dirt, rocks and sand of the COBDR. Fortunately the COBDR is short. I'll be skipping the first paved part from Four Corners and starting in Cortez so 619 miles of COBDR.

Still hoping....anyone else?
