Free shipping to AK!

Most folks may already be aware of them, but I'll put it up here, just in case. Revzilla ( www.revzilla.com ) ships free to Alaska, on $100+ orders! Not sure if they do tires. My Sargent seat, and Altrider crash bars, both came Priority Mail in 3-4 days, and free. I found them to be great to deal with. They carry many top quality vendors.

Last i checked they do not include tires in that deal, at least not to AK. Easily my favorite online vendor though for gear.

Just so people are aware...

The Motorcycle Shop is happy to get as competitive as we can regarding pricing and shipping.

All you have to do is ask and we'll see what we can do.

Again, not saying we can always beat internet pricing, but if you'll give us the chance to keep it local, we'll always go to bat for you.

Yep, some of us will most always shop local. I don't even know when the last time I ordered anything. Just sayin.

Of course, I work retail and know the virtues of shopping local and appreciate customers who continue to shop "brick & mortar.

Happy shopping, Mark H.

I agree for the most part. I just about always try to buy local first. Unfortunately, and this isn't just the bike biz, its retail biz in general, I hear the same "we don't stock that, but we can order it for you".....well, I can order it too, and it arrives at my house, so I don't have to waste gas and time to go get it, and that's if the retailer happens to be open when I'm not working. I'm even perfectly willing to pay more, but it needs to be on the shelf. I have an unusual work schedule that places my free time at an extreme premium, so I certainly don't claim to speak for anyone, but myself.

Same deal with

Bike Bandit. I just got a pile of filters and tubes and miscellaneous stuff that can be hard (er) to run down in rural southeast. They won't do fluids to anyplace but the L48 but they seemed to be willing to send more or less whatever else.

They also had a nice feature where you can store what bikes you are shopping for on your account. Made it easy and fairly quick to run down somewhat mundane pieces of kit that all look the same for a bunch of different bikes.
