Last week, I had the pleasure of being invited to work my “ass off” for a free trip to Indianapolis for the MotoGP. I put that phrase regarding the loss of my posterior in quotes because it was what I was told would occur upon accepting the invitation. I was also told that I would be tasked with the very important and powerful duty of informing the potentially unaware public… Read More
Happy Independence Day! Time to Save Some Money The event known as Independence Day is what we pyromaniac Yanks look forward to every summer: we get to take a day off work, blow stuff up, and enjoy a cold one during a warm summer night with friends. Sounds great! The holiday is also an excuse to save a lot of money and we assembled a special selection of goodies for this year’s Independence Day, featuring items… Read More
This past weekend, Kansas City played host to the Art of the Car Concourse, a traveling carnival of immaculate vehicles of eras past yet remembered fondly. The show was held on the Kansas City Art Institute (Walt Disney is an alumnus) quad and featured some very rare beasts. I was there specifically for the motorcycles which were partitioned off in a small corner of the lot but ended up captivated… Read More

Sure, the title seems a little ridiculous, but this was mind blowing to me: the ability to put on and take off your d-ring equipped motorcycle helmet without undoing the straps. Seriously. Check out the video from MCN and then try it and see what you think!
Father’s Day was originally created in 1910 to complement Mother’s Day which was founded a year earlier. The holiday grew with the help of trade groups that made very manly stuff such as ties, tobacco pipes and coffee mugs full of gasoline. 70 years later, it became a commercial success and once a year, every year, we think of Dad and rush around at the last minute to find something… 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. They look like standard high tops but with a reinforced ankle and toe boxes and external PU protectors, these are shoes meant for actual motorcycle riding! Check ‘em out at MotorcycleCloseouts.com
Like the caption says, we just got back in more Fox Sunglasses. These glasses are the last of the Oakley-made items that Fox was using this last year before they went to optical gurus, Zeiss. Head on over to Motorcycle Closeouts and save up to 60% off on these gems!
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.
As some of you may know by now, Motorcycle Closeouts has an enthusiastic team of pinners throwing love upon our Pinterest boards all the time! In the few weeks the boards have been up, we’ve flooded them with more images of hot bikes, hot gear and hot hot than we can keep up with! So, welcome to the first Pins of the Week post on the blog! Mindy chose Hunter S… Read More
Kevin, our Speed and Strength dude, stopped by the shop to show us some of the already released Speed Shop line. He had already shared the Speed Shop jacket in the past, but we all spent our available time with the garment wearing it around and admiring how awesome we looked. Before I could grab the camera to take pictures, Kevin had to leave and off in the distance, the sound of… Read More
According to a Ride Apart, the new Indian Chief V-Twin motorcycle is going to be sold this summer at a price of $19,000. Purchased by Polaris Industries, the hope is that reviving the brand will bring big new things onto the roads of America and beyond, but with the last couple of attempts at firing new life into the brand have failed, the exclusive price tag seems unfortunately familiar.… Read More
