My local Triumph dealer usually has to order what I want in, but they are pretty competitive with their pricing and shipping times are about what I would expect from online sites. It also helps to have a bit of a relationship when you need things worked on.

Problem with my local place is lack of selection and double the price of online. I can usually buy from within Canada for cheaper than from US but only because shipping is cheaper.
I don't blame the dealers here for higher prices, they are getting ripped off too. Why is it that I can buy items from RD or STG for less than a local dealer's cost? RD and the like are making profit so why is their cost on items so much cheaper than a local dealer's cost? Doesn't make sense. Some manufacturers just gouge Canadian (and other international) dealers.

Example: Shoei tinted visor locally is about $60, Canada online is about $55, Online from USA is under $48. Shoei is a Japanese company, products made and shipped from Japan to the rest of the world. The Canadian/American dollar have floated around par for the past 10 years. Why are their products wholesale price cheaper in the states?

Depends on how quickly I need it. If I can wait a while, I usually try to go to a local shop to try things on for size. Then I order the same thing from TJ at RD or Jason from STG for MUCH cheaper (even with shipping included). Don't worry, I still buy things from the local shops if it's something I need immediately before a track day or something like that where I can't wait for shipping.

I watch videos on revzilla, but i buy in the stores. If the price is WAY off, (depends on how expensive the item is), i'll ask them to maybe give me a discount, and i buy from them.

I usually buy from SPTG but since being more active here and seeing that riders discount has even better prices I'll most likely go with them from now on. I will buy fluids and minor stuff at cycle gear but around here there aren't many options that are remotely close to reasonable prices. Plus most stores here have no selection.

Riders discount for sure! Service, quality and expert advise!
They have outfitted me top to bottom with awesome gear!
It's hard to go somewhere else when you get their service.
