    SOS. Need rear brake pads and fork seals on TAT in oklahoma panhandle

    With group riding TAT and blew a fork seal and went through rear brake pads quickly. Trying to order ahead for trinidad colorado but will still have us sitting and waiting until 28th. If anyone has some for sale, would be much appreciated. Brien at 859421385zero. Can limp through with blown seal but rear pads will be tough. Bike is a f800gs 2012. Thanks

    If you want OEM parts a BMW dealer can order parts for overnight delivery for an extra charge.

    For aftermarket brake pads Beemerboneyard can ship fast.

    Good luck with your trip and welcome to the forum.

    Hey Lee, thanks for the reply. Got it worked out by ordering aftermarket and shipping ahead to Trinidad. Got 3 sets of pads,seal and dust cover kits and forks oil forl less than a third of what dealership in dallas was going to charge. I thought 500 was a bit much. First trip like this so steep learning curve on breakdowns but learning fast. Had parts delivered to auto parts store in triinidad. Thanks again. Never been on a forum so if i did something wrong, my apologies in advance.

    Good ideas Lee
    After a trip like this the OP could probably give us a good outline of what went well, what went bad and what they wish they had brought with them.
