    Hi all..... anyone know where I can get a new perspex/plexiglas screen cut? The lil Thai shop just off Charoen Muang (not far from the soapy's, lhs after the bridge leaving town) seems to have closed down.

    I have to be in CM in the next few days to service my Bike. Thought I would look for an helmet. I'm looking for a LS2 MX453 Dual sport with Visor.
    couldn't see any LS2 brand in the photo's for the Zeromet Shop. Anyone seen any LS2's for sale in CM ?

    I think you will find Zeromet has them, but if you're coming from Chiang Rai I think that Chiang Rai Saddlebags probably has them too.

    Thanks david. CR saddlebags don't have them at the moment. I'll try Zetomet, looks like an interesting place

    Thanks Tony,

    I'll check it out. Got a Nice Shark RSR2 for fast Highway but could do with something for when it's slower and rougher without the need for Goggles. I do like the peak to help as a SunVisor and the increased Airflow from this style of helmet

    Hi David,

    They didn't have that Model. I found a very good price on a AGV AX-8 DS EVO Helmet on a US website.
    It's due to arrive any day, and I haven't been getting stung by import Tax recently, although items seem to take a couple of weeks to clear customs , there's been no charge with USPS delivery :shh:

    Hi, i realise im bumping a very old post, but im looking into some pannier frames at the moment.
    Can i ask if this is two separate frames rather than one complete? (it looks like it)
    Just that i was under the impression that it would be one complete piece (i dont mind separate though)
    I already have a box frame on my bike and a friend suggested having some extensions wielded on.
    Now im wondering if it is normally two separate frames for panniers, or one complete wielded together frame?
    If both options are a possibility..what would you recommend please, and why?
    (My bike is a dtracker 250 cc..and for now it is for soft panniers but if budget and availabilty permits later, would like to upgrade to hard panniers. ..so would be good if its the same frame design for both. If not..just a simple frame for soft panniers is all i need for now)
    THanks!

    Just a heads up for those looking for good priced decent road tires for bikes such as my dtracker 250cc.
    Nat at Piston shop has a promotion on Pirelli Sport Dragon tires at 4900 a set.
    He has only 24 sets (at the time of writing this anyway).
    I read a few reviews before buying and seemed positive.
    Apparently similar to IRC tires but feel better on lean angles.
    So thought id pass that on. =)

    Thumbnail of the tires (click to enlarge):

    In search of a new Camelbak hydration reservoir & nozzles a Google search turned up Sportsworld at Kad Suan Kaew.

    So off I went to KSK.

    As luck would have it just a few shops before Sportsworld on the 2nd floor of Kad Suan Kaew I came across Packs Etc.

    DSC_0831.

    Jackpot for me.

    DSC_0832B-1.

    a small smart clean store packed full of Camelbak + Deuter gear.

    A bit of a goldmine I thought

    DSC_0836-1. Camelbak hydration packs

    DSC_0833-3.

    Deuter was a new brand to me, but they certainly have some impressive products

    DSC_0837. Deuter Packs

    and I'm definitely interested in some of their smaller handy items

    DSC_0846.

    DSC_0847.

    a brilliant little shop worth checking out guys,

    So what did I buy

    1 x 3 litre Camelbak

    IMG_6761. 3 litre Camelbak

    Price: 1,600 baht

    1 spare hydration hose + 90 degree nozzle.

    IMG_6759.

    price 620 baht.

    Packs Etc is  a great little shop. Check en out. 2nd floor of Kad Suan Kaew shopping centre, Chiang Mai.

    Narong the seat magician so popular with expat bikers in Chiang Mai has moved out to R1006 towards Bo Sang.
    His new shop is in a row of shop houses, opposite a 7-11.

    GTR - IMG_0146A.JPG

    the shop is still very popular even with Kawasaki 140 Dtracker riders
    GTR - IMG_0145.JPG

    the google map location
    Google Maps

    Heading out of town towards Bo Sang, the shop is 950 metres past the middle ring road, on the right hand side.
    It is much easier to spot the 7-11 on the left hand side first, then Narong is directly opposite.
    Alternatively heading into town from the outer ring road it is 2 kms from the outer ring road.
