Yep, but I'm in HKG at present. But Jenna is still in Dover awaiting our next outing.
Does that count.

Have a great 2012

Yep, but the days are short and it's cold outside. Looking forward to some exciting Spring, summer, and fall travel.

Re: Is there anyone out there ?

I'm still here! Katie needs another back tyre due to a puncture - the third tyre in a row that's had one and I can't remember the time I had one before this run started. Add in a 48k service and MOT due, plus a change of fluids, and it's going to be an expensive few months for me.

Re: Is there anyone out there ?

I'm keeping my fingers crossed, Phil. I contacted my dealer last Saturday and they said they'd let me know when they'd get the tyre in so I could get the bike down there. I've heard nothing from them yet.

Re: Is there anyone out there ?

Keith,
Have you ever considered having your tyre changed at a local tyreshop? Or even ordering your tyre online and only have the tyre mounted at a local tyre shop?

Since I discovered the huge price difference whicht only requires a little bit more energy from my end, I order my tyres online and have them mounted at a local shop...

... even with the tyre pressure sensors I have.

Saves me up to 80 euro per tyre!

Can you recommend a company that will ship Metzler tires Euro-wide? I am in Hungary.

I am not sure what the situation is now but last year metzlers were hard to get.I had a puncture on my 1600 and the metzler was unavailable.
All the dealers over here wished me luck in getting one.If it had not been for oorty off this forum from germany I think I would still be waiting for a metzler.He bought be one over from germany when he came to saltburn.The situation may have eased now hopefully.

Hi Wolfgang,

I have placed orders before at:
http://www.reifenversand.com
http://www.mopedreifen.de
http://www.delti.com/index_motorrad.html

and also some dutch tyre suppliers that could deliver tyres at reasonable prices.

Check their sites to see if they can ship to HU and at which price.
