help/adres needed somewhere between LA, San Diego, mexico?!!???

We are on the road now for about 8 weeks in the US on a KLR and heading for mexico soon, staying in venice for the moment.

I need to order a chain and sprockets from happy trail and need an adres on the way where i can deliver those objects, since it takes more than a week deliver time.

can anyone help me out with an adres i could use and pick up the parts?

or where to get them for the same price as happy? around a 100 bucks, here in LA they charge 250...


Thanks!!!

Stijn

Did you check out the store of Chaparral Motorsports, in San Bernardino ? They are huge , and prices are reasonable. $100 for a chain AND sprocket sound s kind of low- may be getting a fast wearing set.
If you buy in person you can catch such things and not feel ripped off. Also the shipping costs will add to the price, plus the hassel of finding a place to send it to and asociated expenses.

Lunapix- another possible way, if using DHL, is to instruct them to keep the parcel at their office until collected by you and you give your passport number to secure it-
You'll benefit by knowing it's more secure and easier to find - if there is one that is-
