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?
