Michelin Dealer Helsinki

Hey Fellows,

Maybe i'm overlooking a thread, but i'm looking for a Michelin dealer in Helsinki. My Anakee 2 front tire shows some strange dot's. Unless those are marks to replace, i have no idea how i happens. Personally i think that i can easy ride another 3 to 4 k with the front tire.

If anybody can help me, would be fine. I'm staying at the Kahvila Camping. I'll check the internet later the evening again.

I can also be reached on + four four seven nine two four five eight seven seven three one. Just incase.

Thanks in advanced

Damn, I missed this! See I´ve actually got a brand new Anakee2 front (110/80-19) at my house, that should fit a GS, too (or does the GSA have 21 inch front, I dont remember)... and I´ve even thought to sell it, because my current rear is soon finished, and next I´d want to try the new PilotRoad-3´s.

And the Michelin dealer in Helsinki would be:
Helsingin Pyora ja Mopo Oy
Ristipellontie 17
00390 Helsinki

tel: 09-5479 9930

It is in Konala, right next to the road 120, and not far from Keha-1 (101).

If you´re still in need for a tyre, or need any other help, you can pm me, or send to my e-mail: pexa(at)mbnet.fi
