good deals and switzerland dont go together....

there are a few shops but dont count on any deals... i suspect prices are far higher than BC

eg. i wanted a LV exhaust - swiss price 650chf/ €535/ 700CAD
german price €245 / 320CAD

If you have some time get yourself over to a louis or polo shop in germany.

louis.de or polo-motorrad.de

just remember the swiss will want a share if its over 300euro.

Thanks.

I forgot that Switzerland is not really part of the Euro-currency pact. I'm dropping down into Milan afterwards,,,maybe do better there.

Don't forget to get some petrol Italy and Germany aren't cheaper.
Prices are much better in my Area (AG/SO) then they're in and around Zurich

Take a brake in Livigno (Tax-Free-Area)
