    which, btw...for you non-americans, if you've got a local aprilia or parts vendor you've got a good relationship with, tell them to give me a holler, i don't suspect a US vendor will be too helpful for you guys after shipping is all said and done.

    we've got three sites currently, almost 10,000 members total they would be catering to.

    How about clutch covers (w/clear window), CF stuff, sprockets, PCIII's, rearsets, tires, Ohlins rear shocks (to replace what comes with our models). Thanks for the site man!

    Ok, i talked to one of our contacts...

    The Good News
    we're well on our way to getting something done, we'll have to see the prices we can get, and what you guys came up with.

    The Bad News
    You folks abroad are going to get killed on the shipping. Sorry, just not a lot we can do about this. There are TWO options. 1) If we get something small, like say power commanders, we could prolly put them all in one box and ship it to someone, who then ships or has people come pick them up (i'm thinking this would work well for the UK people who see each other regularly). or 2) If any of you guys have any sort of contact with a parts distrubutor (preferably in the EU/UK) LET ME KNOW. We might be able to have a setup for a US source and EU source.

    For you guys not in the US, UK, or EU...i'll be willing to ship to you, but can't bear any of the costs...if you can get more locals to join the site, and participate then maybe we can do something similar to what i proposed for the euro-folk.

    I guess this will be the problem...find a USA vendor and then 'accidentally' forget about the European/UK/Australia etc users......Sorry to be negative but there appears to be a bit of a bias here!!! Correct me if I'm wrong

    i'm sorry, i take a bit of offense to that statement. Its kinda of impossible for us to "forget" about the UK (and EU) members on this board...you guys comprise the bulk of it. We do have two other boards that have a strong US base, and this was something we were starting before this board came online.

    Since day one i've been looking for a vendor in the UK or EU for our european members (we have strong UK and EU presence...as well as OZ/NZ...on our other boards). To date, no one has even given me a name or number to follow up on. I'd like nothing more than to have a vendor for you European guys, and as far as this site goes consider that to be the priority for this site....over the US members.

    Help me out. I'll make it happen.

    Well depends on what you want,but at present i've got one shop in the uk called Midland Superbikes in Market Harborough in leicestershire if you mention to them that you are a member of this forum they will take 5% of the cost with a bit more work I could possibly get that to 10% i'll let you know on that one and also got 2 more in the pipeline also let you know about them.
