Heidenau's in the S.F. South Bay

I have asked my regular shop if they could get me a set of Heidenau K60 Scouts. They are not currently a dealer for Heidenau's but made an inquiry about carrying them. There is a requirement from the distributor to move a certain annual volume which is more than I will buy myself. My question to ADV is: Are there others in the San Jose, CA area that are interested in another local source or is everybody doing mail order? I'd like to get an idea if it's worth it to try and talk them into picking up the brand.

Regards,
John

Whoever told you that is full of shit. Go directly to the importer, he's in your area, and you can buy a single tire if you want. Here's their address:

Moto-Amore
2983 Lafayette St
Santa Clara, CA 95054
1-408-295-3004

Or go here for a list of dealers.

He probably wants it mounted. Santa Clara Cycle offers free mounting/balancing and is a Heidenau dealer

Doesn't help the OP, but Ventura BMW mounted a rear for me on Sat. I like it a TKC on the front.
