    Recently, one of our staff members spent some time touring in Norway and had a great time with the roads there. Here's a photo of his GSA in front of the former heavy water plant that was destroyed in 1942 to hinder Nazi nuclear research. The Arai Corsair-V proved its worth in the changeable weather conditions over there!

    Just wanna let u know I tried to purchase something from this vendor last 2 years, my very first online purchase and made me feel like an idiot when I was told that they don't ship to country like Malaysia or they didn't accept credit card from M'sia although after i click check out Malaysia appear automatically with $25 cost for any size . :topes
    In the site if u look at International Shipping they put "wording like
    australia, europe, canada and everywhere in between", what a bunch a crap!!!!:dizave.

    That experience almost made me lose faith in all of USA based vendor, until a friend told me not all US vendor are like that, since then i ve made many other vendor my friends. Like GB is one -keep rocking bro!!!

    Maybe they have change their policy lately i dont know, just check out the site before writing this don't thing anything has change, it still looks same to me. One other thing they do not state billing, return policies etc:kboom


    Anyway this is just my 2 cents!!!

    Couldn't disagree more with the poster above.


    I would give the folks at ridersdiscount 2 thumbs up :thumbup:thumbup for their international service.

    I'd been looking to buy some gear for a very long time but always used to back out at the last minute because of the exorbitant international shipping rates.Plus there was always the thought of the gear not fitting properly or having a defect.

    Then one day,I stumbled upon ridersdiscount.com. Their flat shipping rate of "25$ on international orders of any size" instantly had me hooked.I mean this is unheard of when it comes to riding gear.( Not just riding gear,I am yet to find any apparel/electronic/xyz store that does this).

    I took some time to decide the stuff I wanted.Having done that,I sent them an email to confirm availability.A really genuine guy,John, replied to all of my queries and also helped me finalize the right gear.John gave me a nice 10% 'adv discount' too.:clap

    This is what I ended up ordering:

    Fox comp 5 shorty boots
    Tourmaster quest pants
    Thor quadrant knee guards
    Thor Loud n proud T shirt.

    Yes,I wanted to keep it cheap,this being my first international purchase.


    Payment was made on 29th of November via paypal.I was to get a confirmation email once the order was shipped.I didn't get it within the next week so I asked John.I was told they'd found a defect in the quest pants which BTW was the last piece in size large.( I had been made aware that they had only 1 piece left in large in previous exchanges).
    I did get shipping confirmation on the 9th of December.

    My order was here on 30th of December,perfectly packed.Just 20 days after being dispatched which is awesome considering the shipping is so low cost.Frankly,for just 25$ shipping,I was prepared to wait for another month.

    I am glad I purchased from these guys and would do so again when its time to upgrade.I'd highly recommend them to everyone else,especially international buyers.

    TJ at Rider's Discount has saved me $500 off of MSRP on each of the first 2 items that I just bought for my race season!! Ohlins shock (he killed every other vendor I shopped by at least $200...incl other vendor's "group buy" prices!!!!) and a set of Shift 1 pc leathers!

    Great vendor.

    I will be placing an order for a couple of helmets and at least giving him a chance on everything else I need!!

    While I haven't bought anything for riders discount yet, the reviews from customers are always positive from the WERA and 600RR.net forums.

    I have never used this discount to buy from Rider's (just learned about it) and have never asked them to ship internationally, but I have purchased from them in the past and they have always been great.

    I live near their facility in Michigan and they even offered to deliver the part I ordered on ebay personally to save me the shipping cost. Pretty cool! (I picked up the part from their offices at my request.)

    I just ordered a tank bag from RD. I emailed asking about the ADV discount and they replied immediately asking what I was buying. They then gave me an excellent discount on the the items that saved me a lot of money and even discounted the shipping cost to Mexico.

    First class service and they will be the first site I check from now on.

    Awesome service and price from TJ today on an Arai helmet that I have been looking at for a few weeks. Saved over $100 through Riders Discount on the helmet and I shopped at least 7-8 other websites on pricing. Will be purchasing again for sure from RD!
