Looks like we will be here in Chisinau for a few days.
It sucks that it is the weekend, but that's okay. I have one mechanics name. Plan is to go to them, get a quote on them to do the whole job and if it is reasonable I will just let them do it.
Otherwise I will buy the parts and go to a mechanic with the bearing removal tools and get them to put the wheel back together. Then put it back on the bike.
Meanwhile, I found another issue...the ABS sensor ring on the front has a little bend in it... must have happened while we were loading the bike into the van. Does anyone know if/how this will effect the bike? It's $60 to replace but I think that if it just gets taken off then you could work it back to flat with a hammer.
