"Gather 'round, lads.... gather 'round"...
Burt Lancaster / The Crimson Pirate (1952)

Around the 1st or 15th of each month, when I deem you are worthy, we put out our cheesy newsletter to inform the masses as to what's happening in the BMW K1300S, K1200S, GT, R, RS, S1000RR world and of course... Pirates' Lair. How else are you going to find out? If you want to subscribe and have these sent via e-mail to your home or office just let us know at pirate@acelink.net .. otherwise you'll get 95% of it here. Why only 95%? Because I tend to tell the brutal truth as I see it on many issues/products and while I don't mind spewing "my opinion" into your home, office or cell, I have no desire to slam, insult, or malign any company, individual, competitor in public.. unless they blatantly deserve it. Also... something to keep in mind... My language in the email subscription version may offend the meek. Subscribe at your own risk. The on-line version is a bit more... PC..

While I do try to add a little humor in every newsletter, some of my language may offend the mild mannered or meek amongst us. If you are offended easily I suggest you look elsewhere for your written info-tainment. So it is written.. so let it be done....

Lastly, our subscriber newsletter has a link to all our specials .. sales, blems, close-outs, scratch & dent items, etc. If you'd like a list of our current specials, just email me and I'll make it happen.

The Latest Cheesy Pirates' Lair Newsletter: February 2010

Fellow esteemed and quasi-esteemed motorcyclists.... ..A famous (and slightly edited ) movie moment to start the month.....

After his performance, Dewey accidentally barges in a room filled with pot smoke and groupies. His drummer begs Dewey to get out.

Dewey Cox: What are y'all doin' in here?
Sam: We're smoking reefer and you don't want no part of this s@#t.
Dewey Cox: You're smoking *reefers*?
Reefer Girl: Come on, Dewey! Join the party!  [takes a hit off a joint]
Sam: No, Dewey, you don't want this. Get outta here!
Dewey Cox: You know what, I don't want no hangover. I can't get no hangover.
Sam: It doesn't give you a hangover!
Dewey Cox: Wha-I get addicted to it or something?
Sam: It's not habit-forming!
Dewey Cox: Oh, okay... well, I don't know... I don't want to overdose on it.
Sam: You can't OD on it!
Dewey Cox: It's not gonna make me wanna have sex, is it?
Sam: It makes sex even better!
Dewey Cox: Sounds kind of expensive.
Sam: It's the cheapest drug there is.
Dewey: Will I still want to read the Cheesy Pirates Lair Newsletter?
Sam: Yes.. and it'll seem funnier.. and actually clever!
Dewey Cox: [at a loss and out of excuses] Hmm... I think I kinda want it.

Sam: Okay, but just this once. Come on in.

Picture Of The Month! Storm's A Comin' ! (Click Image for a Larger View)

Every month customers send us killer photos and I see no reason to keep them to myself so what better way to say thanks for sharing than to post them in this Picture of the Month spot..

Our February POTM was contributed by Rodney Remington MD over at I-BMW.com. This spectacular shot of his GT was taken in late December 2009. He says of this shot.." Every year between Christmas and New Years I ride hwy 25 south of Hollister, in Central California. I love this road and have ridden it dozens of times but there's something about riding it in winter, when it's green and not uncomfortably hot, that I especially enjoy. I left about 8 AM which is late for me but I wanted the frost off the road. Temps hovered around 50 all day which is fine with me in my winter gear. Didn't even get cold enough for my heated vest although I did use the grip and seat heaters most of the day. Put on about 250 miles. The skies were so different today depending on where you were.. In the shot, mother nature is about to let hell loose on me on lonesome little Panoche hwy, which is just about as close to the middle of nowhere as you can get in Cali. Never got a drop on me but it looks frightening doesn't it? Almost surreal."

If you would like to contribute your own"worthy" shot for our newsletter, here's what I'll need. First.. just email me 1 or 2 of your best digital shots. It'll need to be at least 800x600 in size or larger and preferably A. Of a BMW K1200S or K1300S, K1200RS, K1200R, R Sport, or any model year K1200GT or K1300GT and B. In focus.

The Demise of Road Rocketeer aka Gizmo Mill!: How Not To Run a Business!

Excuse me while I release the Kraken. Over the last few months, I've posted a blurb or two about the trials and tribulations of dealing with Kevin Demers.. owner of Road Rocketeer (formerly Gizmo Mill.) While his K1200RS Brake LED Kits were, IMHO the best aftermarket lighting accessory on the market.. Kevin was about the worst businessman I've ever seen. Even though we've been doing biz with Kev for at least 8 years and had considered him my friend, any attempt at communication has been an exercise in futility. Getting a one-on-one with God is easier.. Deliveries of product was sporadic at best. Excuses for not getting product ran the gamut, but were always imaginative..." Our lease ran out and we're moving to a new facility.." .."Computers were confiscated by landlord so we couldn't get emails".. "other vendors are not paying their bills so we can't afford parts" .. "electricity was shut off due to miscommunication".. "my partner has cancer".. "Bush lied.. people died." and on and on..

About 3 months ago virtually all communication with Kevin or his partner, Timea Meszaros stopped. At that time I had just put a handful of a new version of Brake LED Kits on the market and all (4) had problems so I returned them for a refund. Nothing but silence. I was also getting sporadic emails from both customers and non-customers asking if I knew how to make contact with him. Warranty issues, install problems, missing orders, etc etc.. Hmm. Not good. Then the following email came in...

"Hi there, my name is **** ******** and I'm looking for any information you may have about Kevin Demers. After Gizmo Mill went under Kevin started a new company called Road Rocketeer that also folded 3 months ago, about two weeks after I placed my order (and paid). I still haven't received my product, and there are other riders in the same boat as I am.

I believe Kevin is currently fleeing Victoria, BC (I found classified ads he posted detailing his need to sell everything because he was moving). He hasn't answered phone or email in 3 months, and the Road Rocketeer website is down. Do you have any information about him? His age? What he looks like? Anything about his history? Do you know if he's lived in the US at any point? Thanks for your time."

The individual that sent this note has actually instigated an investigation into Kevin's "Alf and Ralph" business practices. Good for him. As of this printing.. Kevin owes Pirates Lair in the neighborhood of only $500 so it's not enough to go "postal" over. I'll assume that he owes quite a few other people money, too. Touratech, Sierra BMW, Twisted Throttle, and Ride West have joined Pirates Lair in dropping Road Rocketeer products from our menus. Very sad. It just goes to show that no matter how good a product you have to sell to the masses, if you don't have business smarts you're probably better off slinging burgers at Mickey D's or sackin' groceries at WinnDixie. Looks like we'll never see our refund, but "C'est la vie."

The purpose of this mini-rant is 3 fold. A. to warn people away from doing business with Kevin and Road Rocketeer should he eventually come out of hiding.. B. to ask for any assistance in locating Kevin so we can sic the creditors and/or mercs on him.. C. To publicly chastise and condemn Kevin's actions. It's the least an ex-friend with a flaming keyboard and a worldwide forum can do. Shame on you, Kev. What comes around.. goes around.

Carbon Fiber News: Auf Wiedersehen German Price Gouging! Our New Source for Carbon Fiber

As many of you know, for a while there Pirates Lair carried a chitload of imported Carbon Fiber for our K1300S, K1200S, K1300R, K1200R customers. Sold a lot of it, too but a little over a year ago our sources in Germany (Pack Parts and Ilmberger) started raising their already criminally insane prices. At that point I was already feeling guilty for selling a product for 40% higher than comparable Ducati, MV Agusta, Jap Carbon Fiber. While I am a pirate and capitalist (and proud of it) and have no aversion to making money, ... I do have a conscience.

I told the Germans that their pricing was simply out of line with every other Carbon Fiber manufacturer on the market and unless they dropped the pricing.. Auf Wiedersehen. At some point you have to draw a line in the sand .. profit be damned.... and I did. In typical German fashion they told me "you vil accept our prizing unt you vil like it." In typical American fashion.. I told them to "blow me " as I refuse to price gouge my fellow Americans. So... I phased out 99% of our German product line and have been looking for an alternative ever since. Last week I found and alternative source that is cheaper, US made, and worthy of our exclusive product line and our anal retentive customers.

After evaluation of about a dozen pieces from Bestem Powersports (located in Georgia) I ordered a load of Carbon parts and most are already in stock. The pattern of the Bestem carbon fiber is virtually identical to Pack Parts, Ilmberger, and ZTechnik so mixing and matching is a non-issue. As for the quality.. Going down the line I'd give ZTechnik a 10, Pack Parts & Ilmberger a 9, and Bestem Motorsports products a solid 8. Out of the 10 pieces they shipped me for evaluation.. every piece I'd put on my own bike and you know how anal I am.

My first shipment was mostly K1200S / K1300S Carbon Fiber but I have access to all their K1200R Carbon Fiber parts should anyone be interested. Pricing for the Bestem products is generally 1/2 what the Germans were asking and in some cases.. 5 times cheaper. For instance.. the Carbon Fiber Clutch Cover that Pack Parts sells for $216.. we now sell for $40 delivered... as it should be. Unlike many other Carbon Fiber manufactures Bestem Powersports offers a 90 day limited replacement warranty so obviously.. they stand behind their workmanship. Lastly.. I expect Bestem to have lots of Carbon Fiber parts for the S1000RR in the months to come.. and we'll be proud to sell it. Stay tuned.

Pirates' Lair 10th Anniversary: My Plan For World Domination

It's hard to believe it's been 10 years since I started Pirates Lair and what a ride it's been. The motorcycle industry (as well as the world) have drastically changed.. Ahhh.. I miss the simpler times of the year 2000. The World Trade Center was still standing tall and proud in the NYC sky... Bill Clinton was clandestinely getting blown in the oval office.. Our country had a surplus of money.. BMW's were considered the most problem free motorcycles on the road.. and I was very single and still had hair.

As our 10th Anniversary is upon us with a long and winding road still ahead, I thought I'd share a little "behind the curtain" insight into the inner workings of this cheesy operation, offer a brief look into the proverbial crystal ball, and convey my heartfelt thanks to everyone who has kept us afloat.

Even after all this time, I still get the following questions.. "Is this your only business?" .. or .. "what's your real job" .. or.. "Is Amber wearing panties today?" as if they think this is just a hobby or something we do on the side. While we have had part time workers from time to time.. we're still just a 2 person operation and it is a full time job. Amber handles the books, customer service, the porn line, and shipping and I do everything else including day to day html work and design on the ever expanding website. I also spend an insane amount of hours writing these cheesy newsletters. Bet you didn't know that each takes about 30-32 days to write and edit.

When I started this gig way back in 2000, I had only 4 items on the menu and only 2 web pages. Now we have over 1100 individual products on our menu covering 20 motorcycles spread out over 500+ web pages. Of those 500+ pages, I designed virtually all myself utilizing only chimp-like html skills. Only the home page was designed by a "professional." Of course... most of you know that my site is NOT the most professional out there and I am well aware of this fact. It runs as smooth as a Maytag, but it's certainly not slick or sophisticated (mimicking my personality) and that's all on me. I do the best I can with my self learned web design skills.

For the first 9 years in operation, our profits grew by 30-40% every consecutive year. How many .coms can say that?! Of course.. no party lasts forever,... unless you work in congress. About a year ago when the economy tanked, our profits declined by 35% thanks in no small part to the failed attempt at social engineering by Barney Frank and others in Washington. Since then sales have leveled off and seem to be holding firm.. Many of the vendors we've dealt with in the past haven't been so lucky. More than a handful have long since become rotting corpses on the killing fields of failed businesses. Does this make me feel lucky? You're damn straight and I never take it for granted. I put in 50-60 hours every week in order to keep this ship on course, but it's all good, sales are up, and more importantly.. I still feel the love. From what the big suppliers tell us.. we sell more K12/K13 accessories than anyone else in the US.. How's that for a hobby?

Does everyone love what we're doing? In a word.. No. Now and then I get complaints from the PC crowd that they don't like the semi-naked young lassie on our disclaimer page or the language in my newsletters. I tell them that I and 99.8% of my customers do like to look at firm, pouting young breasts, but... I respect their opinion. I also point out that our on-line newsletter is about as PC as I'm capable of.

At least once a month I have a customer email me complaining that they thought Amber didn't suck up to them enough or sell them exactly what they asked for even though it wasn't what they needed. I tell them that I have given her carte blanc to treat our customers like they treat her and to dispense advice as needed even if it means losing a sale, questions their intelligence, or threatens their masculinity. She's a knowledgeable straight shooter and most love that about her. With or without panties.

From time to time I get complaints as to why I don't have a fancy credit card terminal on each page like some of the bigger on-line vendors like Parts Unlimited, Motorcycle-Superstore, etc etc..The answer. I'm a cheap bastage. The lowest quote I've had to make the conversion for the hundreds of product pages was $45,000. Guess I just feel that that kinda money could be better spent on tires, track days, high boots, wigs, and cheerleader outfits for Amber, or exotic vacations! Fairly often I am asked why we don't offer a printed catalog. I explain that our product line changes weekly and that if we had a printed catalog, it would be obsolete before it was in the hands of the customer.

In the last 10 years we've been ripped off only 3-4 times in over 10,000+ transactions which proves to me that BMW riders as a whole are the most honest people on earth. The rip-off artists?... All Indonesians.. non-motorcyclists. They absconded with over $30,000, (ouch!) but safeguards have been implemented since then so that should never happen again. Live and learn. And for whatever reason.. dozens of Canadians have stiffed us for customs/duty charges causing us to change the way we ship to Canada. What's up wit dat, eh?

As for the future of Pirates Lair? With the help of a good woman and Mr. Bigglesworth, I plan on conquering the world. Our/my plan is to stay focused on late model BMWs which make up 95% of our biz. We will continue to change and adapt to not only the industry, but to the needs, wants, and sick farkling desires of our quasi-esteemed customers. We will continue treating our customers like we like to be treated.. with respect and not take them for granted. So it is written.. so let it be done.

Again.. To each and every one of you... thank you so much for your continued friendship and support. Amber and I are humbled and honored.

BMW Best Performing Motorcycle Company in America: Putting On a Happy Spin

According to just-released Motorcycle Industry Council (MIC) reports, BMW Motorrad USA outperformed all of its competitors in 2009. Despite a U.S. motorcycle market that declined 41 percent and lost nearly 360,000 units, BMW motorcycle sales only declined 22 percent, which was the smallest decline among all motorcycle brands. (Sounds like Obama spin, to me. I'm sure the shareholders are tickled pink) This follows on the heels of 2008 when BMW Motorrad USA was one of only two motorcycle manufacturers to post positive growth. “Our dedicated dealers were the key to our success this past year,” commented Todd Andersen, BMW Motorrad USA Marketing Manager. Despite the tough market, they continued serve our customers well and promote our new products like the K 1300 S and the K 1300 GT. They were supported by attractive financing programs from BMW Financial Services.

It's all good.. would I lie?
While many other dealers struggled to finance their customers’ purchases, BMW dealers never lost access to good financing, and this will continue for 2010. “We expect significant sales growth in 2010,” said Andersen, “on the strength of the launch of the production version of the S1000RR Superbike, the most powerful and sophisticated sport bike ever produced. Our dealers have confirmed deposits on over 600 bikes and deliveries to customers will begin January 26.” Also slated for the coming year are new versions of BMW Motorrad’s most popular models: the R1200GS, the R1200GS Adventure and the R1200RT.

What's New In the K12 / K13 / S1000RR No-Spin Zone

I should note that as the RS and first generation GT has been discontinued, I receive less and less news of any new products for them.. I mention this as a few semi-loyal subscribers have accused me of abandoning our roots.. Not true.. I only report what's going on.. Don't shoot the messenger.. I will NEVER abandon the K1200RS crowd. It appears that the times.. they are a changin.' Deal with it. Also.. a special thx to www.I-BMW.com, www.K-Bikes.com , and www.BMWK1200S.com for the information & pictures I regularly pilfer from these sites..

1. BMW riding high after success at MotorCycle News Awards! BMW Motorrad UK enjoyed further success at this year’s MotorCycle News (MCN) Awards, as Europe’s largest and most successful motorcycle manufacturer scooped top honors. The K1300S was voted the Best Sports Tourer of 2009. The awards are widely considered to be the most prestigious for the motorcycle industry, recognizing success in all areas of motorcycling.

3. Have you ever wondered what YOU would do if while out riding, one of your buddies went down? If the crash was/is serious and seconds could make the difference between life or death would you know what to do? If you are like me.. probably not. Rather than languish in ignorance check out ASMI Classes aka.. Accident Scene Management Inc. - They offer Basic & Advanced crash courses for the motorcyclist on how to help a fellow rider who has gone down or is injured. They inform as to what you need to carry on your bike & how to treat a rider down - alone or in a group. I sure hope my riding buddies have taken this course... I'm just sayin.'

4. Finished the latest Dirk Pitt or Mitch Rapp books and you're looking for an exciting read?.... Check out the official BMW S1000RR Owners Manual.

5. Congrats to my good bud, Louis Dionne who was just awarded the prestigious title...www.I-BMW.com's 2009 Motorcyclist of the Year !! For a Canuck.. you're alright, Louis!!

6. Here's the first look of the Akropovic Slip-On for the 2010 BMW S1000RR... and a You Tube Sound Clip. All excited? .. you better sit down as here's the chub-kiiller... it's $1200!! Yikes!

7. Wanna see a cool You Tube video of bike against car?? Of course you do... Check out the S1000RR vs Corvette 700HP It's a German video but you won't need a translator to figure out who wins..

8. Staintune News! Here ye .. Here ye... I got word today, January 21st, 2010 that due to the economy and/or the high price of stainless steel and/or slow sales, Staintune will stop selling to any US vendors except CBT Imports in California. Yes.. that means that Pirates' Lair and all other vendors will stop selling them effective immediately. Ain't dis a pisser? Surprised they didn't blame George Bush.

9. Looking for some wind deflectors for your K1200S or K1200GT fairings? Baker Built offers their Air Wigs for $87.95 + shipping. Their website says.. Air Wings™ Deflect Cold Air and Rain Away, Draws in Cooler Air in Hot Weather, Blows Engine Heat Away, and is available with Black Mounting Hardware only.

10. I got an email from a customer last week asking how I take care of my Carbon Fiber canisters. FYI.. I have them on both of my bikes. I told him... I wash my canister like I would any other exhaust.. Keeping it shiny is pretty easy actually.. Armour-All works fine, but I prefer Crystal Glo Leather and Vinyl Treatment..  It's a Canadian product great for seats or vinyl, but works great on Carbon Fiber and doesn't streak like Armour All... It gives the Carbon a "wet" look.

What's New at Pirates' Lair?

1. Our customers are asking for protection for their BMW S1000RR and who are we to deny them? Just added even more S1000RR products to our menu including R & G Racing Case / Engine Covers. We will soon have covers for the clutch, generator, and water pump. Sooner or later things will go bad. Here's some cheap protection from the inevitable. The covers simply bolt on over the original engine casing. So no messing with glue .. no removing anything.. no brain drain. Slimline for maximum ground clearance, ultra lightweight, shiny and protecting one of the most vulnerable parts of the machine, these could save you serious doubloons in the event of an accident. These come in black only. Ever seen the prices of a new engine casing or the cost of removing debris from your engine?" Be afraid. Manufactured in the UK.

2. Evoluzione Air Filter Price Reduction for 2010!: Evoluzione just dropped the pricing on their Evoluzione Race / Street Air Filter Kits. And not by a little.. by alot. Apparently they redesigned the kits to replace the very expensive CNC'd billet pieces with anodized aluminum. This redesign has caused the price to drop (on the K1300S / K1200S kit) from a lofty $280 to $170.US. Damn!! Thx, Ken.

3. Have you got a K1300S or K1300R and it's just painfully slow and a little on the porky side? Busa's nipping at your heels? Need a little more power and less weight? Are we not men? I got your back, mi amigos. We just added Remus Hexacone Full Racing Exhaust Systems to our menu. We now offer two full systems for the K13's..Both come with Titanium canisters, but one has a stainless steel header. The other a full Titanium header for the lightest system on the market. For those who want the best and have a thick enough wallet to pay for it... Hooah.

4. As per the prophetic blurb above...Once the current stock of Staintune pipes sitting in the US warehouse is depleted.. Staintune will NOT sell to any US vendors except CBT in California. They will be the lone source in the USA. Yes.. that means that Pirates Lair is dropping them from our menu. A sad day for all.

5. If you have been one of the legions waiting for one of our Verholen / FLH Mini-Tankbags that have been on back-order for the last 3 months..Heads up! They just came in ....

6. I've been wanting to add HID kits to our menu for eons, but they always looked like they were designed by Steven Hawking. Too complex for us mere mortals to install and .. painfully expensive. Well.. the times they are a changin'. The DDM HID Motorcycle Lighting Kits we have just added to our menu are truly plug & play and install as though they came from the factory. We are now selling both H3 and H7 HID conversion kits. No splicing, no wiring headaches, no brain drain, no heat issues, no smoking wallets. DDM HID conversion kits use ultra slim digital ballasts designed to fit into the tightest spaces. Measurements for the ballast is 3.5" x 2.5" x 0.5" at only 8oz each. The ballasts are waterproof and are designed to withstand the shock and vibration of a motorcycle. The 35w DDM HID bulbs on our menu produce an incredible 5000 lumens and mimic natural white light. Each bulb slots perfectly into the spot of the old bulb. and yes.. our kits are CanBus compatible. Lifetime warranty! What are you waiting for? Isn't your life worth it?
