Anywhere open?

Under lockdown does a service shop count as essential? I'm looking for tyres - the likes of Cotters would be ideal. The feckers never answer the phone and the website gives no indication.

Re: Anywhere open?

Yes, garages and repair shops do count as essentials but as the lads said above, most of them would be closed to public and only work by appointment which is basically the only proper way to be able to properly apply physical distancing and all that jazz.

Now, if they don't answer the phone.... legends.

I can't reply in the other section. Is the 409/410 available? If so could you know where it is located? Thanks

Re: Anywhere open?

I'm heading to Gorey tomorrow for an essential set of tyres (and fitting of bash plate)

Tried to price tyres from a few of the usual suspects in Dublin but it would be easier to find out the secrets of fatima!!!

Overlanders as usual, direct and to the point (and very competative)

Ask for Aran (take the Adventure Motorcycles option from the phone menu)

Seems like an odd size for them to hold in stock (not sure if they do Bridgestone)

Bikeworld probably best option for Bridgestone
