Hey all, Seeing as I just bought my Honda Spada!!! I thought I would let you all know how I went buying my riding gear. I have been looking for a while and liked the look of both the Alpinestars and Dainese leathers... but I was a bit shocked when I saw the price - so I had a look on eBay, and what do you know it's dirt cheap (well compared to Aus prices). I went into our favourite store, Peter stevens...... :evil: ..... and tried on all the gear I wanted, found the size and noted it all down (and I didn't feel guilty at all about wasting the salespersons time). So I decided on Alpinestars TZ-1 jacket, track pants, SMX3 boots and SP-2 gloves, I was looking at about $2000 odd for the lot. I found everything on eBay at a store called flyinbriansdeals (i think thats the spelling), and emailed him about shipping - he said he would mark as a gift so that I didn't get taxed (all good news so far). So I went ahead with the order and it all worked out well and the gear arrived from the states today (took about 5 days). He was true to his word and marked it as a gift & put a lower $ value on it... in the end it all worked out about A$1250 delivered! So in my opinion, save yourself some $$$$ and go for the import!!!
