Sorry not Dubai, but I could get you a set to Riyadh. It would probably take a couple weeks to get here in the post.

Hey thanks Ken, mighty kind of you. But no, was hoping for a local purchase via a visiting friend who could bring it back to India for me. Just trying to skip the dodgy customs and shipping etc if it comes via post. Those things rack up to twice the priginal cost!

hey, nice to see another AUH'ian post up.... am pretty new here too (5months) and thankfully, my bike arrived just a couple of days after me. I even got my riding license (and the bike registered) before i got the car sorted out so i've been happy since day 1

Although i do commute to work (whenever possible), I did a short ride to Hatta-Huwaylat (twisty roads)last weekend and while it was manageable in the interiors, riding the AUH-DXB highway was torture. You keep sweating even at 140kmph because of the extremely high humidity. Do let me know if you fancy a ride to Al-Ain and the beautiful Jebel Hafeet anytime soon.

check your PMs

I don't know if Tubliss is available in UAE elsewhere. If you can some how get the Tubliss delivered to me in UAE, I'll be visiting Bangalore in last week of June and can bring it with me if you want me to. It can then be sent by post to Delhi/Gurgaon without customs problems.

Just landed in Dubai...my G650X Challenge BMW is following suit from NYC...should be "off the road" by Augustif anyone w ATs to do a morning/late ride for a newbie desert rider...when the weather clears would love to do long distance 2-3 day trips...

Need some work done on the bike when it lands (electrical, GPS mapping, front tire balancing, maybe a new rear tire...)...any decent garages that can do a good job?
