Tyres in Uzbekistan??
Anyone know of 17 inch rear tyres for a Yamaha XT660Z Tenere in Uzbekistan (ideally Samarkand, but Tashkent at a push). Managed to split a brand new Heidenau K60 on the road from Khiva to Bukhara and need a replacement. Any ideas??

Oh that is not good! You are unlikely to find one there. I am thinking Almaty might the closest. Thats a 1000ks of riding if you skip Tashkent.

By sheer luck, I managed to get hold of a used 17 inch Michelin Anakee in Bukhara. Fortunately for me, some previous biker must have abandoned it here and I happened on the tyre repair place that had it. So I am good until something more suitable can be sourced. Happy days!

Fantastic news. I think you shoud find some Almaty. To replace it. Te tire shop went to there had a bit stock.
