i get a lot from www.motostrano.com and www.denniskirk.com

typically they give me some decent discounts, no sales tax, and free shipping...plus some great closeouts.

+1 for kneedraggers.com

ive used them a couple times. sometimes they have really good deals in their specials and closeout sections, was cheaper than an employee discount from a dealer.

i had a problem with one order, which emailing didnt seem to help, but i called them up. they were really cool and helpful and solved the problem right away. good folks.

i always recommend use local places first. but if you have to go online they are not bad. i remember when their site first opened. it was so ghetto, lol. but they came a long way.

newenough.com is probably the best if they have what you want.. They are based here in texas and will get your item to you within 3 days by fedex.. kneedraggers.com is another that i have used as well but they are out of state.

My 2 cents?
Buy local whenever you can. Even when I didn't have the shop I tried to support local places.
Most of us will work with the pricing with you and though it may wind up being a bit more, (we do have costs associated with being a brick and mortar store, you know; rent, payroll, taxes, inventory, etc.) you get to try on what you're buying, or if you do have to order it through us, it's easily swapped out if the fit is wrong.

Plus the sales taxes you pay stay in your community, and don't kid yourself, if you're not paying any sales tax, the local government will raise it another way.
The money will still be needed and will still be raised to pay for the infrastructure of roads, education, services etc.

Lastly, imo if you keep buying on the internet, eventually places that will lube your chain, look at that rattling noise, setup your bike, or lend you their trailer won't be around anymore.

My 2 cents YMMV.

Well said and I have yet to see very many sites beat the prices from my favorite local shop once you figure in shipping and all the sizing drama. (dirt cheap close outs excluded)

Totally agree. I used to buy stuff all the time online for my bike. stopped when Motomummy charged me for a factory pro engine cover that did not come in with all my other parts. They told me to call factory pro when i called them. It is not my job to call the third party. it is motomummy's I waited a month, got tired of their bs. and then had them refund my order for that Item.

Very well said, Patrick.
In addition, support your favorite site's sponsors. They are the backbone of the boards you enjoy (especially if it's a free site like MH).

I usually buy local from Motorcycles Unlimited but I'll go to kneedraggers.com to get product reviews and color options. Plus Motorcycles Unlimited is way faster and always have better prices
