I learned the hard way. You might want to look at the Better Business Bureau website before you buy.

Same thing here, Thanks for the warnings. I'm always a bit unsecure about buying on the net. That is why I only try to buy from the TT shop :)

Thanks for the warning.
Chapparal has been around a long time. I have purchased successfully from them before. But they have probably gotten bigger as a result of the internet. Like anything in the retail world these days, turning a profit comes way before satisfying us, the costumer. Plenty of other places to shop on the net. Better stop now. Starting to get PO'd. My 2 cents anyway.

I've only ordered gear on the net so far. I've been ordering at motorcycle usa superstore twice and had no problem. My orders are shipped to a friend in the US though, not in Canada.

Thanks for sharing about Chapparral.

I second that. Same deal here, MC superstoreUSA or Dennis Kirk, they both have been perfect. I find Chapparrals catalog is OK, but if you go to the website, nothing is there, barely anything and no picture avaliable. Its crazy, I just avoid them all together, though, still getting their catalogs. :)
