Michilin Deserts in Kazakhstan
Anyone know where I can get some? I've heared there may be some in Bishkek but have lost this guys email address. on the Pamer highway at the moment but won't get much further. Also does anyone now if the boarder into Kazakhstan at Almaty national park is open or closed, I'm hearing stories of it being closed.

Can't help with tyres.

But led to believe you are right and that border is closed. If not totally, certainly to foreign nationals. You'll need to cross at Bishkek.

cheers for that, in Bishkek now, hopefully will get some tyres tomorrow.

"The Silk Off Road club guys (Marat is the best contact there) dont deal tyres, but they can introduce you to the two tyre dealers in Almaty.

They (Silk off road) also have a mechanic, but I would advise you dont use the Silk Off Road mechanic but use the KZ Motors (my town moto) mechanics instead."
