Finding riding gear in southern Mexico?
Anyone else out there live in Mexico?
One problem I'm finding is getting my hands on some decent motorcycling gear. I've got an old helmet and pair of ratty old gloves, and that's it. I'd like to pick up a vented jacket that's decent for hot weather riding, a newer helmet, better gloves, and I'd especially like to get some decent luggage.
The trouble is that it's impossible to find any locally. When I went into the local Honda place and asked to buy a replacement visor for my helmet, the staff looked at me like I was from Mars: virtually no one here wears a helmet, so why would they stock something that no one ever asks for?
I'm wondering if there's any place in Mexico that does mail order for motorcycling gear? To order anything from the States is ridiculous: I found a jacket I liked online for $100 US - but the company wants an additional $150 US to cover shipping and duty to Mexico!
I think my only solution is to wait for a long weekend, ride for 8 hours up to Oaxaca City, and see what I can find there!
