    Given the state of the pound perhaps a local J&S this side of the water would be cheaper

    I'm sure there are some good ones. But would be a bit wild to ask where ?

    Nearly everything in France is more expensive than the UK. Also 'sales' are not as good generally.

    I'd be buying in the UK pre departure if it were me.

    Buying close to home would make any warranty claim easier too.

    Pretty sure there is a Dafy Moto in Le Mans, but you'd be daft to buy any gear over here.

    Pricing is wierd in Europe ... having lived in Gemany and Switzerland basic goods are priced at a differnt point.
    Clothing is Germany is like here ( more or less)... but the fashion is questionable.
    Shoes are horrendously over-priced, and for shit quality.
    Pharma stuff is much cheaper ..

    everything is Switerland is expensive - but tyres on a motorbike were about par to here. And vets were much cheaper ...

    That said France is expensive at the moment ... even for the French ...
