How does it complicate things? You can prepare for shipping ahead of time and deal with the rush a bit more effectively. Those of us willing to pay ahead of time guarantee ourselves a set of tires in sizes that may potentially sell out quickly. Seems like a win win?

Thanks for all your questions and continued support. The emails I get tell the tale of people planning trips around this container, and we will do our best to get them out same day.

thx dave

Our container has been loaded.

It is on the Maersk Virginia.

The shipper did us no favors by booking on that ship.

It looks like mid-August.

E09 Dakar on 09 R1200 GSA

This will be my 3rd rear tire - they're great! I'm averaging 6500 miles. I have put 1 TKC80 on the front for the last 12k and it's feathered pretty bad now even though there's plenty of tread.
For our big bikes - the Dakar is the way to go. You guys seem to like the 7's better, so I may try that the next time.
