He's gone

Glad to help. That tire has been sitting there looking for purpose. Just to let others know; Ghostrider1964 is a great guy and true adv rider. See you again.

For future reference

For any future dilemma's like these to all local riders -

I have access to a tire changer and full workshop 24x7 in Ellijay, I also know that Rider's Hill just north of Dahlonega is open Wed > Sun 9 to 6 and carries Tourance and many other tires. www.ridershill.com

Glad all worked out in the end. Just saw this thread now.

We should start a Southeast thread... "Shops Open on Sunday and Monday". In fact, I will go do that now.

Would be great to do that in all areas. Bad thing is I am a member of BMW MOA but left my black book at the house It would have been hard to beat the response u guys gave. I was feeling pretty isolated last night standing beside my bike on I40 in the dark. Luckily, my wifes aunt and uncle live in Bryant AL and came got me. And thanks to Randy who stopped on his DR 200 to hang out with me and help me load the GSA into that S10 pickup. Love you guys Now to get ready for tomorrow. Gonna stop in Harrisburg PA. My ass is not up for another 940 mile day on a stock GSA seat

help

Sorry we missed you Ghostrider! I was out of town delivering a bike this weekend. MotoCompound is closed on Sunday but we will open to help a stranded rider. My cell number is 423-762-3878 for future reference. Again, sorry we missed you and have a safe and fun ride.

Call List

You know, as many of us as there are; we need to establish an emergency call list. The last thing I want to read is about an ADV rider killed while stranded on the side of some road somewhere. I have a trailer and reasonable shop facilities and I would be glad to travel an hour in any direction from my house to help a member of the flock.

Let's not let this lie!!!!!

I did not think to use my blackberry to access ADV. But Dogscout was only about 10 miles from my blowout. I check emails with my blackberry had never accessed ADV until recently with it. I will be headed back through TN Thursday. Gonna go a bit slower and gonna try to avoid I 40. Any good routes that parallel I 40?

Chuck, it's been done. Check out Dirty South's signature line.

Also, I started a thread that attempts to list bike shops that are open on Sunday and Monday to help our fellow travelers, but it hasn't gotten many hits which is kinda surprising as I thought it'd be a good resource. I do have 2 PM's I need to sit down and add their dealerships to the list when I get a chance.

Try 64 from Memphis to Winchester, then 50 to Altamont, 108 to Laager, L on 399, Right on 8 to 127, left on 127Nto Crossville. From there you can take 70 west almost until Knoxville where you'll want to get back on I40. Sorry I was out riding Sunday when you PM'd about the flat. Good to hear you're back on the road.

that's a good route. be careful on 64. it's often peppered with LEOs.
