How bad is Israel for tires? Any 21" tires? Maybe in Eilat?

Hi Lars

You can get all tiers of all makes here. In Eilat too. if there will be a problem it will take a day to order it from Tel-Aviv.

Ride safe

when will you be in Israel. In June im flying my bike to Cape Twon from Ireland and riding to Cairo and then to Eilat and on to Tel Aviv.
Its easy to get stuff in Israel but like was said in Eilat you would have to wait a few days, but to tell you the truth unless you are really stuck you would be in tel aviv before the tyres get down, its not that far.
Eilat is a very cool place and Tel Aviv is a really cool place,,, lots of good friendly biker clubs there and they love biking..

Let me know if you need any help as I spend a lot of time there and have a friend in Tel Aviv

Thanks for the good news.

5Eyes: Will be in Isral within the next 3 weeks or so. I am currently in Sanaa, trying in vain to get a Visa for Saudi Arabia, as it looks. Seems as if I have to ship my bike.

Or: Does anybody know about ferries from Yemen to Egypt?

Hey Yoni

We are on our way down to (somewhere in) Southern Africa on an F650 Funduro and R100GS - but no spare tires! Arg!

We are thinking of a side-trip to Tel Aviv by bus.... soon....can you tell us where we could get some there?

Thumbs up Hi Gareth and Helen

No problemo:
You can get them from BMW dealer here in Tel-Aviv.
Or directly from the importer. Give me a day I'll do some checking on the cheapest dealer.
Anyway if need any help call me while here, my mobile No. is now in your private mail box
