Day 2 – Paris:
We arrived in Paris and looked for a Kawasaki dealership. We found one not too far from where we were staying, and went there early in the morning. It turns out this dealership was actually a showroom and they didn’t have any parts. The guy there directed us to the parts store, and he also gave them a call to ask if they had the filter we needed. He got off the phone and told us, “It’s not possible,” and that it would take 7-10 days to get the right filter.
Plotting how we could order this filter in advance and get it further down in our route, we decided to visit the parts store anyways. It was close to the periphery of the city, but we eventually found it. We walked in and showed the broken filter to the guy behind the counter. Two minutes later, he came back with a genuine Kawasaki replacement filter! We were very excited that we finally found the part, and so we bought two – just in case Aron’s bike has the same problem.
