Any discounts for forum members?

I am in the market for new BMW apparel for my wife and Arai RX7 Corsair helmet. Does anyone know if our suppliers give any discouts to members? I would also like an alarm for my GT and larger horn. I remember someone mentioning in this site some place about discounts from BOBs BMW or was it Chicago BMW. I might be wrong but I was just wondering

Yep, Gauthama - you're right. Chicago BMW does offer about a 20% discount to us. However --- call 'em to verify if it applies to apparel and helmets. I'm not sure on that. My only experience with them is on parts.

Thank you Dick. I will call to see if includes those items. Do you have a specific contact to talk to that knows about the arrangement? Or any person from parts or apparel will do.

Just tell 'em who you are and that you're on the BMW.LT site - that should get you in the door!! You want the parts department first and they'll either handle it, or connect you with the apparel department. Good luck.

For BMW-brand apparel and BMW parts (perhaps the alarm), it makes sense to go to a BMW dealer, such as Chicago BMW. If you buy from Chicago BMW, expect a long wait for delivery. I ordered a tool kit from them and it took a month between order and delivery. My guess is that they didn't have it in stock, but had to order it from Germany.

For non-BMW-branded stuff such as the Arai helmet and the horn (and maybe a non-BMW alarm), consider a third-party source. They may have a wider variety of colors and sizes for the helmet. Unless you are very certain about the size, it is hard to imagine buying a helmet through the mail, though.

Where I live in Southern California, there is a store called Chaparral. It sells nothing but motorcycles and related accessories and is easily the size of a large Walmart (really!). http://www.chaparral-racing.com/ They don't sell BMW-brand stuff.

Full disclosure: I never tried their mail order. There are lots of other similar mail-order websites you can try. Look in the back of any motorcycle magazine.
