Need Help - G/F B-Day

Ok guys/girls my gf's birthday is on the 9th. I want to get her a riding jacket for when she rides with me. The Icon kitty jacket would be perfect. I already bought her some other stuff so can't spend that much. Dealer cost on the kitty jacket is $239.90, anyone know of a cheaper place I could get one?

I like the Icon team merc jacket too. Don't have any experience with textile jackets. Those I can get for $94.90. Would a textile jacket be ok? I'd rather have leather, but $$$...

Basically something pink, or with pink. I'm not a label whore, just those 2 are the style I'm after. Any help/input appriciated. I only have a few days, so come on people, help a brother out...

Maybe get in touch with this place? http://www.terra-powersports.com/pro...4/sid/1/mfr/45

They don't list their price, so maybe you can get a good deal...

My special quote was $319.00. Damn.

It doesn't have to be those, just need something along the lines. Any suggestions on other coats?

Thanks for the help...

Yeah he did has deals way under retail, but they are still more than what I can get them for being a dealer.

I found web deals on tires and stuff for a lot less than dealer cost so I was hoping maybe I could find the same thing on jackets...

Guess not.

Thanks for the help.

I haven't seen them cheaper than that anywhere, and I have been looking lately for my wife. Ebay has them for about 250/260 on average so that won't work. If you find em cheaper let me know.

Well I just sucked it up and dished out the money. $240 cost from parts unlimited. Didn't see anything close anywhere else. Cheapest was on ebay for - I want to say $280 - on up from there. Couldn't find any web deals.

Not bad for a $400 jacket. Found a Wilson's that was cool for $99. It was white with red stripes down the arms, "destroyed" it looked pretty cool. I just got stuck on the kitty jacket and now I'm broke.

Bhartwig32 look at wilsonsleather.com for ^ that one.

Damn had to pull some money out of the exhaust fund to cover the extra cost on the coat. That really hurts. I'm just too damn nice for my own good...


Thanks for the help Y'all!!!!

You'll have to let us know if she likes it!
