Two weeks ago, I got a flier in the mail from my Honda/Kawasaki shop - The Motorcycle Factory in Manassas, VA (www.themfi.com). 20% off all accessories and parts orders, including special orders. With my fingers crossed, I called up and asked about ordering Touratech and Twisted Throttle accessories. The parts manager, Bill, said to give him a list, and he would see what was possible. Bill got back today - it's possible! MFI is willing to become both a Touratech and a Twisted Throttle dealer!!! As with all good deals, there is a catch - both companies require a minimum first order of a certain size from a new dealer. I believe Twisted Throttle is $750, and Touratech is somewhere around $1000.
If you're interested and absolutely serious about participating in this group buy, please respond to this thread or via PM with your shopping list in the following format:
Vendor, "Vendor part name", vendor part number, vendor part list price. e.g.,
Touratech, "Mudguard Riser kit w longer ss brake line BMW F800GS", #048-0200, $153.00
Anything on the Twisted Throttle (http://www.twistedthrottle.com/) or Touratech USA (http://www.touratech-usa.com/) website is fair game.
I will compile the full order list and forward it to Bill on October 16.
