shopping in California

Hello.
I'll be leaving for California this weekend for two weeks of exploring. When i arive in Cali i need to re-shod myself and my beast. Could somebody sugest a shop, preferably in the north where i can get a pair of Conti TKC-80's "90-90/21 and 130-80/17" and a pair of Sidi Discovery's for myself. I need a place that stocks the boot so i can try different sizes. I'll thank you all in advance!
Ron...

...Also, portland and Eugene Oregon are other possabilities if someone knows of any good shops there that would stock these items.
Thanx!

What is your route? Are you coming all the way down I5 or on the coast on 101? If you are going through Eureka I can give you the number of the local dealer, you can order the tires by phone, and have them hold them for you when you come through. They don't stock them, but can get them. It takes a couple of days, so pre planning is a must.

You may want to try "Portland Motorcycle" in Portland OR. They just opened a new BIG store near the airport. They are the BMW dealer in this area. The big advantage to shopping in Oregon is NO SALES TAX!!! Both CA and WA have it, but OR depends on income tax. If you want directions, leave another message or reply to bobkat***at***kalama***dot***com. If you need a place to stay let me know, we're about one day's ride from Vancouver, BC. We are 27 miles north of Vancouver, WA in Kalama, right on I5.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events (22 this year!); we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.
