    This is more of a regional thing versus an equipment question but mods feel free to move...

    Does anyone know a local shop that carries heated jackets that i can try on?? I prefer to try on jackets before buying. I called one local shop who's website said they sold a brand i saw mentioned a lot on ADV but when i called them they said they dont stock much inventory anymore.

    I'm in North OC... dont mind driving a lil but wanted to see if any of you knew of a local shop that actually stocks inventory anymore.

    thanks!! :ear

    Wingstuff ( www.wingstuff.com) in Lake Forrest usually has some heated gear in stock. Cycle gear stores usually has some Sedici stuff. After that best bet is probably the BMW dealers.

    I think BMW dealers are your best bet.

    I bought my gerbing from bmw ventura. they also had firstgear/W&S at the time.

    Check ahead first though. The BMW dealers dont all carry the same stuff. IIRC, BMW Long Beach for example carried WnS, but does not carry Gerbings.
