Motostorm purchase report

Hello,

Just wanted to report that I purchased a full set of Givi top and side cases + racks from Motostorm.it and I'm pretty pleased with the transaction.

I had it all shipped to a 3rd-party U.S. address (I live just across the border) because it costs a bit less than shipping to Canada. They have quite reasonable flat-rate shipping to the U.S. and there were no surprise brokerage fees or duties. I just paid HST coming back at our border and that was it. I put my order in on March 19, it shipped on the 25th and arrived at my U.S. address on the 30th.

I priced out the exact same setup at TwistedThrottle.ca and I saved over $300 after factoring in the exchange rate so it was certainly worth waiting a few more days.

YMMV but they are worth checking out if you know exactly what you need and don't expect to have to return stuff... that might be more painful.

Last May when outfitting my new 1000 I bought some of the items from them. Topcase, side racks, Airflow screen and crash bars(All Givi). Also ordered 4 items for a friend and we split the shipping($35). When I had questions a well spoken lady helped me. Very easy to work with. Probably not worth it if only ordering 1 item, but great for multiable.
