Default Motorcycle Live Bargains

Hi all,

Heading over to the NEC next Friday for the show. Since it's Black Friday I'm hoping there might be a few deals floating around. It then occurred to me that maybe those of you that are going over before that might come across some bargains worth posting up here for those of us following along later?
Anyone think it's a worthwhile idea?

Picked up the RX-7V Nicky Hayden lid there last year for 120 euro cheaper than here in Ireland.
Brought lid to the Arai stand and got a 2nd free tinted visor and visor bag too.

Cash is king and haggle hard.

Remember that you will need to pay 8 euro to bring the lid back with you on the Ryanair flight this time.

They changed their cabin bag policy there recently.

Looking for a new lid. Hopefully the Shoei Neotec2. Bought a Neotec there about 3 years ago and loved it but wrecked it in an off! Flying with Aer Lingus as usual and never had any hassle bringing stuff back to be fair. Good deals on anything will be considered

Going over Monday Looking for a Neotec2 as well I’ve checked out every review last few weeks and it’s hands down the best flip up lid out there. Only thing is it’s pricey but I suppose you pay for what you get

Ok went to NEC yesterday as well as fantastic bikes to drool over there are great bargains all over the place for gear so if you've already booked your flights you'll be well happy.

Loads or great prices on lids just go from one stall to another and haggle with all of them they'll all do a deal with you they want to off load as much merchandise as possible before they pack up next Sunday. I got my Shoei Neotec 2 Excursion for 390 (438) they are for sale on Moto.de for 614 and the best offer I got in an Irish shop was 575 plain coloured Neotec 2 helmets even cheaper mine is in the pic below. I also got great prices on an Oxford bike cover and winter gloves. My son bought a brand new Eugene Laverty Shoei X-Spirit III for 399 (449) about 700/800 over here and online, plenty of sizes available too. My other son bought same motorcycle coat as mine a Dainese D-Blizzard D-Dry which we recently saw for 400 in Ireland he got it for 180 (202)

We had two carry on bags going home and two big Shoei helmet boxes with us didn't get asked or charged just walked onto plane (Ryanair) with them no hassle. So for the price of a cheap flight, fly in that morning fly home that evening you can't go wrong

And listen to your Ma bring comfortable shoes
