Employee discounts are for employees. The manufacturer offers this in the hopes that if you actually use the product, you will be more informed about it when dealing with potential customers. Offering it to the public at large is a disservice at best, a breach of contract at worst.
Bah Humbug to the mods ...
Pay it forward for a Happy New Year
What do mods have to do with this?? Or do you mean no modifying your bike??

Yes, but sometimes they offer a "friends and family" type employee discount for the same reason... and to get more people using their stuff. So it could be something like this.
I felt guilty using a friends & fam discount at a local shop when I was actually a friend of a friend of a staffer, not an actual friend (or family) but I was upfront about how I was there and they were very happy and piled my bill onto a discount for next time I go there... An online coupon (if that's what this is) is less personal and gives less opportunity for that kind of absolution (if they choose to give it) but I guess that's just the way it is...
