Never bought from them before but I've found when stuff is too good to be true, it typically is. They can't spell for shit and you can't find a phone number or address anywhere on the site.

Sometimes your knight in shining armor is just a retard wrapped in tin foil.

Looks pretty damn sketchy to me. Best stick with reputable bargain retailers like newenough.com and motorcyclecloseouts.com (to name a few).

Looks like Chinese knock-offs of good products.

I wouldn't want to crash test any of that! It's not worth my skin to save a few $$.

I buy from http://www.motostrano.com ... they've never steared me wrong.

Becky: [to Dante] OK, I'm only telling you this because we're friends, but sometimes, in the heat of the moment, it's forgivable to go ass-to-mouth.
Randal: [chuckling] Ha! I knew it.

That is a hell of a marketing model.
