Traveling Need Help

ALL SET THANKS FOR THE HELP. Ordered one and had sent to shop in San Antoino.

Ok here is the scoop.
I traveled solo from Maine on my R1150R with Hannigan Sport sidecar (did a small personal writing/RR on the Maine thread if you are interested). I am leaving on Monday for NC via New Orleans (need to be in Orleans by the 7th). I am stupid and just realized that I need a new tire for my sidecar. It is a Carlisle Radial RT 145/70 12" that I am looking for.

Here is the problem(s). No one seems to have it in stock. The other problem is I have Lou Gehrig's that is causing me some issues. I can barely speak, cannot walk without a walker, have trouble breathing, eating is very difficult (well f#*k everything is now difficult) so those issues prevent me from getting on the phone or walking in someplace and explaining/ordering one.

What I am hoping is that there is someone between Tucson AZ and San Antonio TX that could order me one that I can just pick up on my way through, and go take it to a tire place and have it mounted. My route is down through Phoenix via Rt10. I think I can make it 500-800 miles with the one now mounted, but it will be pushing my luck trying to go any further. Of course I am willing to pay for the tire (including overnight delivery) in advance and would give my cc card number by PM to anyone that may be able to help.

I know this is a shot in the dark and if this does not work out that's ok and I will figure something out.

PM me if you can help.

Enjoy the Day

Stromsurfer.

This may sound odd but you could check with Walmart. If they order the tire they can typically have it sent to any store for you to go to in route.

Hey PB, nice to hear from a "local".
Not in a hurry to get back but the SO leaves for home tomorrow. I have stops in New Orleans, NC, and PA so probably will not get home until April 20 or so. That's as long as want to be apart from my sweetheart.

Take Care

MC

I ran across SS's bike today at the local BMW dealer and I know he was getting some type of tire(s) today in Greensboro, NC. Unfortunately he wasn't there but I knew it was his bike without ever seeing it before due to the Maine tag and the "Fuck ALS" sticker.
