    Hi All,

    Anybody know where I can get a tyre in Bangkok. Peter (Siamsuperbike) is closed till the 6th and we need to get away before then. It's for the back of a TDM850.

    Happy New Year,
    Dave and Hel

    I usually buy from:

    "Dumrong Yang Yont
    (Pure Motor) The owner is knowledgeable, confident, and speaks good English. 453 Maitrichit Road.
    Tel: 02-222-3789"

    He will send to Chiang Mai for a couple hundred baht.

    This was my first port of call but only Peter's website gives holiday opening times. I guess they are all closed today but will start phoning tomorrow. Is it a Bridgestone that you have on the back of yours? I may try to get the same, or a Metz Tourance. That guy on the Dominator said his were virtually unpuncturable.

    Thanks for that, I'll try him tomorrow.

    Be cool,
    Dave

    David-

    Mine is a Michelin Anakee. Not to be a smartass, but didn't you know you needed a tire before the holiday? [;)]

    Ever notice that "What the Heck!" is usually the right answer?

    Top tip, thanks for that. The guy was friendly and helpful and knew the rear fitment of a TDM without reference. I got the tyre, yesterday, for 4900B; seemed like a bargain.

    Thanks for the call, generosity beyond the call of duty again. You haven't got a hard luggage system knocking about have you......?

    Got an Anakee. Good and stable at 100mph (scrubbing in). Buying in Bangkok made sense to me, am I missing something?
