Although all your comparisons are valid, they do not negate the fact that you do get taken for accessories. You really don't have much of an option to not buy them if you want to fully enjoy the product. They know that and they mark up the goods appropriately. $360 for a set of vinyl tramps, really? I hardly think so, but I had to have them. But I did know going in that I'd have to buy stuff.
Yah that's the price of what it costs to play. A Harley can cost you in the 50 grand range once you add all the goodies.
Look if you whined about having to buy a chrome plated muffler, I wouldn't say a word.
This is about SAFETY GEAR. The stuff that will keep both of you alive. If you can't afford that then don't buy it and stay at home.
I am tired of your accusatory Bullsheit, Madwand. I was NOT sarcastic when I mentioned to you as to where you can get some reasonably priced Underwear.
How the hell should I know that you don't have a Costco in Baton Rouge.
So, use your head and look up Costco.com and order them online.
Yup, I've had enough of your whining crap. You claim not to be a child and insist that you are not to be talked to as a child.
I'd love to talk to you as an adult if you would stop acting like this forum owes you anything.
We do not work or act for Hobie in any way. People here spend their precious time to try to help each other. I or anyone else here are not part of your warranty
If you can;'t figure that out, then indeed, you may be a lot younger than you claim to be.
