Big bikes like GS's are very popular in Europe, so most of the tire shops have 110/80/19 tires in stock.
I can't image why would tire be any more expensive there, than in any other place in Europe.
If you see some shop by the road, stop and ask, maybe you can get a bargain if not, It takes only a minute.

Be safe and keep coming with your updates.

I don't think you have even been to Norway.
Everything is expensive
Plus I am in the middle of nowhere in the Arctic.
The nearest big town is hundreds of miles away.
And last and most important, I am cheap and I don't want to spend the extra money when it could be going to better use later like buying a bottle of good wine in your country when I see you

Here's and example of how expensive it is here
Just one can of Guinness works out to $7 a can or 5.50 Euro a can.
And this is at the supermarket
In a pub it is double or triple

But in the early morning when it was cold out still, the tunnels were warmers so I liked the tunnels then.

Nope....that one is free...or was in 2009.

Here in Norway, they don't mind pulling the sheets over their head

Tyres

Lalo, there is at least 1 motorcycle dealer in Tromso. Biking is very popular in Norway, even in the north. I will take a look and see what I can find..... price wise.

And here is what I found when I got to the world's famous Trollstiggen
There were lots of bikers and lots of people enjoying the beautiful day and beautiful road.

There was a look out platform so you can better see the road twist and fall down the fiord.

Here's what the road looked like.

And yes, it does deserve to be one of the ten best roads in the world.
Not because it was that much fun to ride. The section before I thought was more fun. See the last picture.
But the scenery was breathtaking

On my way to Romania to find Top Gear's favorite road now ( but I bet they have never done Pato Canyon)
