    Dropped in to 320 SP today after work to get a tail light for the KLX and a couple of other things.

    They informed me that the shop will be moving over to WongWian Yai as of July 1st.

    Asked for the new address.. She said to look on the website closer to the time.

    Bigger premises / show room etc.

    Wonder if they will go up market the same way Paddock has these last few years or still keep the wholesale prices and warehouse feel.

    Cheers
    Brian

    Finally a visit to 320 SP.
    And yeah it's not easy to find, but the give away are 2 banks (1) Thai Farmers Bank, then UOB , then you have the Soi to 320SP
    And the name of the Soi

    291701=16339-IMG_6450.

    291701=16340-IMG_6421.

    and the shop is a veritable Aladdin's den of motorcycle gear & accessories.
    Jam packed full such that it is difficult to get any decent photos.
    However....I had to have a go & take some.

    291701=16341-IMG_6424.
    291701=16342-IMG_6426.

    291701=16344-IMG_6434.

    291701=16345-IMG_6436.

    291701=16343-IMG_6432.
    291701=16346-IMG_6431.

    291701=16347-IMG_6428.

    291701=16348-IMG_6429.
    291701=16349-IMG_6430.

    291701=16350-IMG_6440.

    and the vivacious dynamic Ms Gae

    291701=16351-IMG_6449.
    possibly the top motorbike accessory sales lady in the country, & no doubt a serious wheeler & dealer.

    320SP will be moving on 21st August to a new address across the river at Wong Wiang Yai
    Their new card

    291701=16352-GTR-320SP.

    they also have a new website & catalogue in the works.

    Now if you live in the North,or even elsewhere in the Kingdom outside Bangkok & dont want to make the trip to Bkk then my guess is our GTR supporters Chiang Rai Saddelbags can get you most things that 320SP have.

    And what did I buy?
    A new Komine Supreme Titanium Jacket

    291701=16353-GTR-Komine-Supreme-Titanium.

    & the price: 4,500 baht.
    Size 4XL = I had to try on a few to get the right size. 5XL is the biggest too I understand.

    BUT
    Now I've seen this in the Komine Catalogue
    The Komine Sargas Touring Jacket

    291701=16354-Komine%20Sargas%20Touring%20Jacket.
    however, 320SP say no have.
    But Paddock do have

    291701=16355-IMG_6481.
    with a price tag of 15,000 baht.
    So it's still in the shop for now.

    A trip to the Arai Shop

    292742=16761-GTR-Arai-Bkk.

    Lots of stock ready to go

    292742=16762-GTR-Arai-Bkk2.

    292742=16763-GTR-Arai-Bkk3.

    292742=16764-IMG_7518.

    292742=16765-IMG_7519.

    but the reason for my visit......to test out their helmet refurbish

    292742=16766-GTR-Arai-Refurbish2.
    3 years use & close to 90,000 kms.
    The dirtiest helmet he had ever seen.
    But I deliberately left it dirty to see exactly what they would do......a little test.

    So what happened, they replaced the liners, chin pads, vents & side pieces.

    292742=16767-IMG_7516.

    and the price...

    292742=16768-GTR-Arai-Refurbish.

    4380 baht.

    Its probably time for a new helmet & I'm thinking about
    1. Arai Quantum ST

    292742=16770-Arai-QuantumST.

    and / or
    2. Arai Tour-X

    The Tour - X 3 was 17,000 baht at the Arai Shop
    The Tour - X 4 is 24,000 baht at Riders Outlet.

    292742=16769-Arai-TourX4.
    An a little update, the Stadium Accessories website is
    The Pha Daeng Mansion

    G'day All,

    320 SP recently moved over to Wongwian Yai..
    Decided to go over and check out the new shop..

    Not bad indeed.. Not chaotic like the last shop.

    Few snaps below :-

    Location
    4392a0ab-2bb2-4c94-b2b4-24a2d5cd739a_zps85e15bcc.

    The shop is down a small alley way.. There is a sign on the wall.

    Look for this on the round about and you have it..

    Friendly staff and loads and loads of helmets

    This pic is for your Franz.. I know you are a big Shark helmet fan :)
    DSC_0832_zps48281a7f.

    Now what did I buy.. Too much.. As Bob said.. More organised and more opportunity to spend money...

    My purchases.

    Off-road helmet with visor and touring pants and jacket.

    DSC_0828_zps790b061e.

    DSC_0829_zpsa4879b73.

    For those visiting.. Traffic is terrible getting over the river to Thonburi.
    Suggest you take the BTS to Wongwian Yai BTS and then make your way.. Looks to be around 600 to 700 metres walk on Google Maps,

    https://maps.google.com/maps?client=safari&oe=UTF-8&q=N+13+43.626+E100+29.639&ie=UTF-8&hq=&hnear=0x30e298fae5ad830b:0xdefd538c7ce2f6a7,N+13+43.626+E100+29.639&ei=7a1GUpnbJ4j8rAeHmYHABA&ved=0CCwQ8gEwAA

    Cheers and hope you find this useful.
    Brian

    One thing to add:-

    If you know what you want and your size.. be very clear on the size.. EUR or Japan
    If you know the Japanese size for the Jap gear.. Use that..
    Every time I said EUR they had to think and half the time would get confused..

    I said EUR L and they kept referring to XL.. Hope this saves on any grief with mail orders up country.

    Here are the pics of the helmet.

    AGV AX -8 Dual

    DSC_0837_zps5827d7d7.

    DSC_0838_zps69b228bf.

    Will have to get it stickered.. a little to plain and boring white for me..

    Asked them about EMS.. Then said to the guy next to me.. Give you 200 baht to run it back home for me.

    Yep OK.. Apparently EMS would have cost 300 baht.. He did it for 200.. Downstairs waiting at reception.

    The benefits of Thailand :)

    Cheers

    This is in part a cut and paste from another post of mine but thought it should also go here.

    I would recommend House Of Bikes on Phatthanakan Road Soi 20 on left as you ride down from main road http://www.houseofbikebkk.com. I used them to supply and fit PIAA horns to my Versys. I was recommended them by another BKK biker I know who has had work done by them. Its more of a bike bling supply and fit shop rather than repair or service. That said they did a fair job fitting the horns and had a constant stream of Thai customers having bits fitted. A girl had some English but fitters not much but was not much of a problem. They had stock of Rizoma stuff, YSS shocks (yes not good rep atm) Brembo brakes, some DOT labelled lids and a selection stainless fasteners plus other bits.

    That's not something most of us have ever looked for before I'd say, but I reckon 320SP would be your best shot.
    What bike are you riding?

    Looking for accessory options for the new Suzuki Vstrom 650..

    enter Jacket Boy
    http://jacketboy.com/

    https://www.facebook.com/pages/jacketboycom/200974706716602?fref=ts

    a small one man adventure touring shop that specializes in the Suzuki Vstrom 650

    305631=22555-JacketBoy.

    The shop is a bit out of town, behind Future Park Rangsit

    305631=22559-GPS%20Map001.
    the address is Rangsit- Nakhon Nayok Soi 5
    Phone: 089 815 6244

    The owner has a Vstrom 650,

    305631=22556-GTR-JacketBoy-01.
    rides & has been in Vietnam with his Vstrom & in Shangrila, China on a Vespa.

    He knows his gear from experience, which accessories are of lower quality materials - manufacture & which ones last, are relaible & don't break when you need them to perform. I was impressed with his knowledge, discussing materials & cheap manufacture.

    305631=22557-GTR-JacketBoy-17.

    305631=22558-GTR-JacketBoy-16.

    The small one man shop

    305631=22571-GTR-JacketBoy-05.

    Differant lights for different riding conditions.

    305631=22573-GTR-JacketBoy-03.

    If you think you're an adventure type rider & what good first hand advice from an experienced rider check out Jacket Boy.

    Accessories are available for all adventure bikes & he fits out BMW GSs, Honda 500Xs, Versys as well.

    Check out the websites for the various shops listed and compare the prices.

    Cheers

    Yup, Checked the prices in 320sp, very tempting i can say. Alpinestar prices starts from 2500, are they genuine,the reason is in India alpinestars start from 6000. I loved Komine jackets.Defitely i will visit 320sp

    There is a lot of fake stuff in there.
    But also a lot of genuine.

    To date the jackets I have seen looked OK..
    If you are in doubt.. Look at the Alpinestar distributor earlier in this thread.

    Prices in Thailand have come down a lot over recent years.
    In some cases the same as or cheaper than the USA.

    Thanks, Brian. I needed a temporary replacement helmet on the way through BKK (My brain must have grown, as my Shoei GT-Air, which was comfortable, now has me begging for mercy after about 20 minutes - Somehow That doesn’t work with 10hr days...). Why did they invent waterboarding when undersized helmets are readily available?
    I caught the BTS over to WWY (I used to live over there in the 1980’s), and got friendly service at 320SP, which was doing steady business at the cashier.
