    Can any one recommend other places besides Saddlebags to buy gear in Chiang Rai? I have nothing against Saddlebags, I'd just like to do some comparison shopping.

    Unfortunately Chiang Rai Saddlebags has closed down. I cant say I've seen any other gear shops, but that's not to say there isn't any. Maybe a shopping trip down to Chiang Mai where there's plenty of gear shops to would be the go.

    Hi Tom
    When you come to CR pop in to Chiang Rai Big Bikes and talk to brain as he purchessed all saddlebags old stock.
    There is new bike shop in Mae sai which had loads of nice stuff.
    Also a few other places in Mae Sai sell bikers stuff.

    Hi Princey,
    I'm guessing you don't know the name of the shop in Mae Sai. Could you tell me roughly what part of town it's in?

    When you come to the main set of traffic ligths just before the town with a big PT petrol sation on the rigth.
    GPS number
    20.419188 99.884012


    You carry on pass Tesco on the right
    And I think it's just passed that on the rigth

    Big shop
    Forgot the name sorry.

    Also you can check out the market shop.
    Go to the border take the left hand slip road and turn left.
    Just before the slip road goes under the border bridge.
    As you turn left it's about 7 market shops down on the right.

    Between the 2 you should be abel to find all the stuff you need.

    IMO the first shop is,the best.
