Tyres

Post by Captain » Mar 24th, '17, 19:51

Hi Guys.
(Long time, so visit.. sorry...)

I'm in bit of a bind. My bike has got a flat front tyre and none of the tyre places within walking/pushing distance of me can help right away.
I kind of need the bike back on the road tomorrow.
Does anyone know of a a place in Taunton/Bridgwater area that holds a good selection of motorcycle tyres?

I'm assuming I can use one of those emergency inflate things to pump the tyre up enough to drive the bike somewhere.

(I had a go at taking the wheel off, but (as those who know me know) I'm pretty useless at anything like that, and couldn't get the brake caliper off).

Are they likely to hold motorcycle tyres?

I've found one guy who does zero call out for Bridgwater (well, he charges a brew! This is my kind of tradesman :D )

Good rep from lots.
Have you noticed that anyone going slower than you is an idiot, and anyone going faster is a maniac ?

Thanks for all the advice guys.
I managed to get the wheel off and take to a place in town that had a tyre :)
