PARTS PRICES!

Love my Beemer but tired of what seems to me to be ridiculous part prices. Several days ago I noticed that the BMW emblem was missing from the right side of the fairing on my '11 RT. Yesterday I visited my local "stealer" and inquired about purchasing a replacement. To my surprise they had the part in stock. My jubilation ended quickly when I was told the price, $55! I had earlier looked around on the net for a replacement and found several auto hood and trunk lid badges for under $25 but none appeared to be a direct replacement for the bike part so I had to bite the bullet and hand over the $$. I know they need to make money to keep the lights on and I don't mind supporting my local dealer but sometimes I just feel like I'm being ripped off! End of RANT!
