I was looking at sunglasses - $712.99 is a little more than I would spend (I'm normally in the $1.99 range), but hey, these things are hand made in Italy! Hand carved out of titanium, with just a hacksaw and file that would take months! And plastic lenses made by someone else...maybe hand carved from Marmite jars. I could lose these things in a matter of hours, but however found them where I dropped them would be pretty damn rapt.

I thougth you would smeer some oil on the Mk2 Flying Goggles you got a Vallantines in 1971 for milk money......these days riding a motorcycle is about looking the part and having the best gear......well thats in Ponsonby anyway....don't know about over them Bombays.
I just stuff all my gear in a rubbish bag and tie it on the Norton with # 8 wire......

I don't know why anyone on here would complain about the prices anyway - from what I've observed Adventure riding is all about displaying disposable income. Park up at a Cafe in a rural town, pretend you got there the hard way, and let the bike speak for itself.

You just need to get more than 150km from Auckland sometime mate. Down here we park up outside the pub & let all the bike's mud, scratches, missing bits & ghetto mods speak for themselves

A lot of the Touratech gear is quite nicely designed stuff though. I often copy their ideas when I'm building things for the bike

Cheers
Clint

Thanks guys,

We are working on the pricing calculation formulas as I write this and we will be amending the website ready for the weekend.

I can assure everyone we are not out to gouge with the pricing and looking forward to building a relationship within the Adventure Bike fraternity :-)

Watch this space and if you are concerned with anything then please feel free to give me a call 022 10 12 14 1

Harley's parked outside of cafe's dosn't count as adventure riding!

Nice work. I was wondering if some of the prices you had shown on your site were going to be revised once you got cracking. I think most of us would like to support your new venture but like all internet business, there are lots of places to compare pricing to keep every one on the same page.....but being able to chat on the phone is the best way to clear up any apparant pricing confusion.

Good luck with the business!

Not trying to sound facetious, merely curious so no offence i intended but is a NZ internet shopping site more betterer than an o/s one? I guess you have a warehouse & someone packing & shipping which helps the local economy but unless the cost is as competitive as overseas I don't see the advantage.

Good on ya for starting up.

Damn, I was so going to buy some Touratech, but I was up at the Mangatangi Dam today, and rummaging through the rubbish bins, under some banana skins I found this....Says LYS 1975 in the badge thing, nice patina - everyone will be sure I've been using this thing everyday since 1975.
