Strombolli, are you living in Britain? Military? If so where? I am stationed at RAF Lakenheath.

Anyways, I have ordered stuff from MotorcycleSuperstore.com and Revzilla.com. Both ship APO (if you are military) but I tend to get stuff from Revzilla faster. Have also gotten things really quick from Twisted Throttle.

2012 DL650A Adventure, Yoshimura R-77 3/4 exhaust, Sargent World Sport Performance Plus seat, ProTaper SE Raptor bars, SW-Motech 25mm risers, ProGrip Grips, Suzuki handguards, Tuono mirrors, Givi skid plate, Adventure Tech fork brace, GPS mount, peg lowering kit, auxiliary power shelf, SW-Motech convertible foot pegs, SW-Motech extended shift lever, SVRacing frame sliders, Garmin Zumo 660, MRA Xcreen, Michelin Pilot Road 3 Trails, Eastern Beaver headlight relay, Coocase V37

Currently in the United Kingdom and looking for great rides. PM if you have suggestions.

Tons of riding gear available through Ebay UK, Hein Gericke products are really well made, but a fraction of the cost of the of the BMW gear etc.

Just be careful buying clothing from UK sites, as quite often there are size differences between EURO and US Sizing, even within the same brand.

I know this from experience, tried the exact same AXO jacket in both EURO and US size variants, and they are completely different sizing, the EURO was at least a whole size smaller.

I ended up buying the USA sized one, as the fit was a lot better in the arms and waist. Got the AXO Stone Enduro jacket
