I would get the Metzelers which should be fine, the locals get around on road tyres so they should be up to the job.

If you're in Bangkok you should be able to get anything you want.

Contact Khun Yut at Dynamic motors, he'll fix you up, speaks very good English too.

sourcing tyres from BKK may not exactly be as easy as back home..but still I'd much rather sort it out there, than in South Asia, where its almost quaranteed to take a lot more effort.

or, if you're in South Thailand, you could maybe get it sorted in Penang Malaysia as well. They'll probably get stuff from Singapore.

Ok I have spent a week in Penang looking for tyres, I found a 150 Metzler tourance there to big for my DR though. I have flown to Singapore and spent a day riding around the bike shops there in hinsight I wish had yes to the K76 road tyres that I found in Singapore. Im convinced there is no K60 Karoo3 or MT60s in Singapore, Im in Phuket at the moment riding up to Bangkok tomorrow, There is a great store here called Pursat big bikes that I found everything else I needed he stocks pirellis but scorpians trails are so road orinatated compared to the K60 He couldnt get me MT60s. I messaged Asiana cycles in KL I would fly there to get them but they wont return messages or they cant speak english. I think Ill just get to Bangkok on my tyres and hope I can find something there
Some of those new Contis would be awesome
