I don't know about other countries in the Southern hemisphere, but South Africa currently has a major shortage of motorcycle tyres. The Michelin importer has three containers somewhere on the seas but nothing on land. What The? emoticon

We have a major shortage of pretty much everything. Funny what a global pandemic and major ports being shutdown can do to production and supply chains. It will eventually sort itself out but it'll take a while.

We live in interesting times. My solution was to simply buy 2 new motorbikes during the pandemic. They come with new tires

My local bike shop couldn't get hold of matching tyres for my ET2 (city grip, not city grip 2). Resorted to buying online and made a saving (luckily they had them in stock).

This shortage has been going on for almost 2 years....I used to buy a lot thru Bike Bandit, then they went belly up. It is a scrabble looking around on different sites trying to find the one or two you need.
