One question I have gotten many times since the start of track days is how to take care of your track gear, specifically your suit. Best answer is always follow your care label attached to the garment! This will always be the best practice in order to make sure that you do not ruin the item by using incorrect methods. Sometimes the labels are filled with a lot of symbols… Read More

I’ve ridden motorcycles for a long time, but undoubtedly, when a motorcycling virgin friend or family member finds out, they usually want to know one thing… Why?
Pre-bike show bike rally… That doesn’t read right.
Our Speed and Strength rep stopped in and brought a pair of Wicked Garden shoes that the girls’ wanted to try on.

Most modern motorcycles have an interlock system built in to prevent you from riding off if the kickstand is down. For whatever reason, riders like to disable these. Maybe it’s because as soon as you click into gear, the bike kills itself and, (I’ve done this myself) it can be kinda embarrassing.

Working in the retail store at Motorcyclecloseouts has given me the chance to get to know our customers on a different level. The best example of this comes in the form of three motocross loving middle schoolers. As much as I hate to admit it, Mason, Seth, and Dawson have swindled their way into my child-hating heart. Over the Course of one weekend the boys pulled out the big guns; they shared with me their love for motocross and the true meaning of race fever.
