Tires ASAP

Is there a place near the city where I can get some new tires for the Duc ASAP? Only places I know are far away from where I'm keeping the bike now.

What sizes do you need? Jason has scrubs he can set you up with if you have somewhere you can get them mounted. I run them sometimes too, so they will be fine for you, I promise.

If you ain't with us, then it's just bad news.

Blackhawk Farms (just north of Rockford) this weekend at the NESBA event will be your cheapest and best option. Will not cost you anything to get in the gates and buy some tires from the trackside vendor.

Is Nesba membership required?

Nope. Just come by.

Call Matt @ MD Racing.

He might have a 160 around. It's hard to say.

mdracingstp.com

He is the trackside vendor for the midwest Nesba. So you could get them mounted this weekend at the track. Let him know if you're going to need him to pull the wheels off the bike it may affect the price. Otherwise you might find some helpful individuals to help you.
