Hong Kong Dealers

Hoping one of you Far Eastern ADVriders might be able to help out a UK based cheapskate!

I'd love to get one of those Shoei Hornet helmets (see here for details http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=69818 ) But the only source outside Japan seems to be Helmetpro who are asking over £250 for it. Looking at a few (translated) Japanese sites they seem to be going for the Yen equivalent of about £140 but no Japanese dealer will ship one to the UK.

Sooooo, I wondered if I could find a Shoei dealer in HK (for instance) who would be willing to do a deal, extensive Googling has turned up little of any use so I'm throwing myself at your mercy!

Thanks in Advance

There is a really big accessory store on the Hong Kong side, not Kowloon side that has a huge helmet selection. They are very close to the only BMW dealer in HK (walking distance)

I have bought several helmets from them that were not available in the US.
