That's not bad at all. Check Moto Alta Vista in DF, they usually have some 140 and 150 Scorpions in stock and might get there a little quicker. Or ask the guys in Guadalajara to put it on a bus to Vallarta instead of using post.

You could spend some days looking around. I would just order it now and enjoy the beach for a couple of days.

Yep. Most local bike places outside of DF or Guad don't stock big tires as they would sit around forever. Outside of DF or Guad, you're best off ordering unless you get lucky. I've also had good results from motohouse.com.mx. They got tires to me in 2 days from DF.

Try this Suzuki dealer...he almost almost beats the KTM shop in town and shipping from MC is only 1 day or less.

ProShop Patriotismo:
Patriotismo 98, Col. Tacubaya
Tel. 01 55 5272 11 11

They also just added KTM.

You also have a KTM dealer in guadalajara....call them and ask them to give you the best price:

Eurobike (EUBI KTM)
AV.PATRIA 2128
45110 ZAPOPAN, JALISCO
México
Datos de contacto:
Tel: 00333611-2296
E-Mail:info@eurobike.mx
www.eurobike.mx

El Stigo!
