    Dealers in Paris?

    I'm looking to pick up an AirFlow 2 helmet while I'm in Paris (working) next week, anyone have any experience with any dealers there?

    I'm not sure about Canada but they don't sell the AirFlow 2 in the U.S. And yes, I meant France.

    I guess money is not an object... Europe is notoriously more expensive than the U.S. But if there is an item you can only get there, and you desperately need it....
    Best price I can find is 370 Euros approx $480.-plus, for an open face helmet????

    Wow! That's even more expensive! $510.-
    But you will sure be part of a real exclusive crowd, wearing this helmet.

    BMW helmets including the Airflow are available in Canada, but cannot be sold to US customers per BMW's orders.

    I have experience with dealers there

    just not helmet dealers. I rode into France in the early 80's on a rented bmw. We entered France through the town of Pussy. That's no joke, it's pronounced Pysi.
    Anyway, we stopped at a pastry dealer and waited patiently while they ignored us for 15 minutes. My wife and I got back on the bmw and rode back through Pussy, waving to all the pussy people until we got into Italy. We stopped at a pastry dealer asap and had some Cannoli's; they were great and so were the Italian people.

    Anyway, that's the only experience I have with dealers in France.

    If you're over by the Marais district, there's a scooter dealership adjacent to the BHV department store. You might find some interesting European market scooter helmets in that shop. During my last trip, several years ago, Givi had some unique and interesting models with lots of air vents.

    If you go to the the Arc de Triomphe, look for the Avenue De La Grande Armee, its opposite of the Avenue De Champs -Elysees. Most of the bike shops in Paris are there within a short walk of the Arc De Triomphe. One of those shops are sure to have what you are looking for. The BMW shop is on the left as you walk down the street.
