      Gents,

      AS some of you know, I purchased my motor used, and the cage is, and has been for some
      time, on it's last
      legs. I have dealt with XXXXXXXX for parts thus far in my career as a paramotor pilot. I
      emailed them this week only to learn that they are "no longer permitted" to ship to
      Canada. That means for those of us who fly Fresh Breeze products in Canada, a belt goes,
      exhaust
      bolts.... etc. etc., we are in a bit of a pinch. Needless to say I am a little pissed. What
      regulations have been passed between now and a 2 months ago when I sent business their
      way that prohibits them to ship to Canada

      So then I start toying with the idea of replacing the cage on my machine. My machine is
      from 2005, and since then, Fresh Breeze has modified the cage, and frame to a design,
      that in my humble opinion is stronger, and more visually appealing. I have friends in the
      good ol US of A that I could ship parts to, so I decided to email XXXXXXXX for a
      quote. What I got back was simply astonishing;

      each quarter piece of cage $228.00 American
      Frame $426.00 American

      Unbelievable! ! Because this sport brings to us aviation that fits in the trunk of your car, (or
      Phil's truck), dealers feel no shame in raping us on the price for parts. for instance.... an
      intake silencer.... or in laymans terms, a piece of plastic approx 12 inches long....$75. 00
      American. Carbon Fiber Prop, $425.00 American.... and now these outrageous cage/frame
      prices. Soon this affordable form of aviation will be out of reach to the common joe
      because of people who ruin the concept of Powered Paragliding to line their own
      pockets.

        Hey, I (PPG for Morons Paul) didn't make a comment on this subject.
        I think that there are more Pauls in PPG than any other sport. From
        now on I will sign any silly comments I do make with Paul Anthem
        or "El Conquistador Supremo", whichever is shorter.

        But since you were on the subject of PPG parts, here's my video on
        the subject. (Read the info sidebar to see that I'm not knocking
        anyone).
