    I recently tried to get Bridgestone Trail Wing tyres via Samoto, but the answer was no stock in Bangkok.
    So I got Michelin Anakees instead & for almost the same price = Bridgestone's are getting exensive.
    My current hot tip would be to try G3 on Taiwang road, as a couple of guys (Snail & Suzukiluke) have bought their last tyres there & were very impressed with the price.
    See ya Sunday for MotoGP on the goggle box at the UN Irish Pub to swap biking tales.

    Why do you want Trailwings? I have Metzeler Enduro 3s on my 400 TA and they're pretty good. Actually they are way too much tyre for the power this bike can produce but you can still slide em and spin em when you want to.

    Thanks guys ......after a bit more riding about I have 2 car tyre dealerships that if asked nicely can make a call to Bangkok and can order my Bridgstones in 1-2 days..one tyre place on Chang Puak...shop number 199 telephone number 053 805252/4 wants 4150 baht for a rear . The other place is on the highway coming past Tescos towards the Nimmenhamen junction before the Chang puak turnoff ..it has a massive Bridgestone sign ..they tell me they can order it in one day for 4000 baht including delivery and fitting ....... again I had to ask nicely as they didnt really want the hassle .......I`ll try G3 for a price too...anyone got a number ?

    thanks again all.......

    In case you are interested I ended up going to the tyre place on the Superhighway near tesco Lotus .....my Bridgstone arrived next day as promised ..Mr Chan chai (assistant manager) let me off the 3% credit card charge and the tyre was proffessionally fitted my chain oiled etc ........really nice proffessional outfit with great prices ..oh I paid 4000 baht incl of shipping and fitting. Mr Chanchai states he doesnt just deal with a limited number of tyre manufacturers he can pretty much get whatever is in bangkok...nextday . He just wants 50% deposit ...

    if you need tyres try calling them on 053 221358 / 053 222444..

    Im off to do the Samoeng loop to get my new hoop scrubbed in ...

    cheers

    If you want to order direct from Bangkok, I suggest 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 about a 200 baht.
