Australia’s a great place to live but the cost of living is way too high.

A parcel containing Wunderlich accessories for my BMW S1000R arrived from Great Britain today. I ordered from the UK because off the tremendous price differential. All up, including air-freight, the imported goodies set me back just over AU$530.00. The exact same items purchased online in Australia would have cost over AU$1,300.00.

Rip off.


  1. Yep. I ordered most of the stuff for my R1200 GSA from Germany, UK (I love it when they deduct the VAT) and USA. The Australian prices made my eyes water. The worst was the local Touratech supplier. I recently ordered a part from them and they got very shirty when they found out I had bought the main article in the USA. Have you compared bike prices?? Criminal!
