Just a thought about Cycle Gear

Just a thought about Cycle Gear.
I don't want this to sound like an advertisement, but here we have a company that exists to cater to us, the motorcycle riding community, and offer an alternative to the sometimes severely over priced dealer accessories.
Over the several years I have bought many things there. Loading ramps, chains, security chains, tires, Helmets, gloves, the list goes on.
It is truly nice to have a store nearby that caters to our hobby. The manager and asst mgr in my local store both ride as does the asst mgr's father.
They are a part of our riding community as well as sellers and servers.
Just a thought. But if we do not support an enterprise like this, they shrivel up and go out of business, and our choices are severely limited.

just a thought..........................................

As far as Cycle Gear...I have bought several things from them.
The latest of which is supposed to be here Friday.
The Trackside rear paddock stand.

I am familiar with all the Motosports.com, Motorcycle Superstores, JPCycles, Leatherup, and all the rest, and i have ordered from most of them.
Just a thought about going to a store and trying on a jacket, or such,
that's all....................

I've visited a couple of Cycle Gear stores near me and purchased my jacket, pants and riding protection there. I love it that you can order from their site and return to their stores with no hassles. Definitely recommend the place!

Iím glad Cycle Gear opened about a month ago here. The closest one was 70mi. away.

The only negative is the tax added when buying from the store.

It is worth paying the tax just to have the convenience of a store to walk into.
I like being able to try stuff on,looking at the actual product,etc.

The tax goes to help,your state, and local community. When nobody pays sales tax, the government entities will have to tax you in a different way.

They will do that regardless if you buy local or not....
