Near-Bomb-Proof Klim Touring Set

Near-Bomb-Proof Klim Touring Set

A matching set of Klim touring gear wandered into the shop the other day. It’s practically brand new, never been worn out, and quite frankly, might survive a bomb going off. This gear is uber durable, super waterproof, and just smartly designed.

Medium jacket, size 30 pants. They would normally retail for over $1500 new right now, but this set? Only $850!

Run in before they’re gone!

Classic Harley Davidson Orange Jacket

Classic Harley Davidson Orange Jacket

I love it when really fancy Harley Davidson gear comes in because I feel like all the people who own Harley’s or really appreciate Harley gear descend on the store all at the same time. They come in, beeline for the desk and ask ‘Is there any new Harley gear in?!’ with an excited and slightly manic look in their eyes. It’s pretty fantastic.

This beauty is the classic Harley orange with all the patches and embroidery details. It has a double main zipper, elastic gores over the hips, and quilting over the shoulders. It’s in great condition and has uber soft leather. 

Women’s medium. $299. So purdy.

Ombooty Handmade Exotic Leathers

Ombooty Handmade Exotic Leathers

Maybe you found yourself in the desert this past week. You went to Burning Man for the first, or fifteenth time. All of the fabulous people, art exhibits, technology, and costumes. Well this post is for you.

But maybe you didn’t go to Burning Man this year but stayed home to practice your fire poi, fire hoop, fire sticks, or fire cannons for next year. This post is also for you people.

Or instead, maybe you found yourself at a Renaissance festival. All the authentic food, dance, and once again, costumes! All natural materials teeming with authenticity. This post is also for all of you.

Or maybe again, you were with your dance troupe doing a modern art piece that studied the connection to the animal world or the natural world. All the practice, getting ready for the performance, and still needing costumes. Guess what. This is your post too.

A supplier called Ombooty brought in some of the most amazing and beautiful exotic leatherwork. There is goat leather, bull frog, cayman, cow, and bass fish just to start. The artistry is unbelievable and the attention to detail is to die for. When you put it on, it warms to you and feels like a second skin. You can move, breath, and experience life in this clothing and look stylin’ doing so. We have bras, booty shorts, femme vests, and crop tops in an assortment of colors and a variety of small sizes. They are all made by hand and have the most amazing feels.

Is dual-sport dual-fun? Does it work that way?

Is dual-sport dual-fun? Does it work that way?

Dual-sport anything is the merging of both on- and off-road biking. The bikes and all of their gear are specifically designed to be safe riding among the cars on the road, or the moles and mountains off the road. The Icon Variant is a seriously sexy helmet designed for exactly that purpose.
This helmet has a sexy matte black finish and a clear visor. It was manufactured in 2010 and is in really good shape. Although it retails new for over $360, this one here is only $113. The caveat? You need an extra-small head!

These vintage chaps are made by Bristol right here in Canada. They are the softest leather on the outside and because they are unlined, you can feel the ridiculously soft suede on the inside…

Summer is here and it’s HOT!

Summer is here and it’s HOT!

The sun beats down at a scorching 30 degrees celsius. The UV index climbs steadily higher towards 10. You’re on your bike, sitting in parking-lot traffic on the highway. The sun is hot, the air is hot, the pavement is hot, your bike is hot. The slight breeze against your neck pushes against your leather and gets no where. You’re sweating, hot, tired, and at this point, probably wishing for a mesh jacket.

Look no further! For now anyways. Also, no promises it will still be here unfortunately. This is an official Honda branded Joe Rocket mesh jacket. There’s a water resistant zip-out liner in case it rains, but for those hot days, let the air flow right through! There are tech pockets everywhere which are waterproofed to save your electronics from both the rain and your sweat! Ride cool and dry in this jacket because you’ll probably need it this summer!

Grease me up Scotty!

Grease me up Scotty!

Leather is a finicky material. It wears beautifully, contours to the shape of the body, holds up its end of the bargain in terms of safety, and looks darned stylish. But what if you get caught in a rainstorm?

When leather gets wet it removes some of the natural oils that are present in the leather that make it smooth and supple. With the oils gone, the leather fibers get hard and brittle and eventually deteriorate.

Enter: Huberd’s Shoe Grease and Saddle Soap! The shoe grease not only smells amazing, it provides a waterproof barrier between water and your leather and keeps it dry. Use it on jackets as well and really work it into the seams for waterproof goodness. If you do get wet? Use a bit of the saddle soap on your leathers. This will remove the stains that arise from the leather once it dries and it will recondition the leather by adding some of the oils back in.

These things are fantastic and will help keep your leather conditioned and loved for many years to come.

A new boot with a whole lot of history…

The Vintage Shoe Factory, also known as Walk-Over, has a really long history in the USA. They started making shoes for men in 1758 in the shed next to their house. Fortunately they have moved on from sheds in more recent years and now they just handmake some beautiful vintage-inspired boots from their previous designs. Their slogan, “Made to a Standard. Not a Price,” still rings true with these.

SO pretty!

These boots are the most sumptuous leather. They are ridiculously soft and extraordinarily beautiful. We don’t know the brand but darn if they aren’t the cutest wee riding boot. They have a very small 13″ exterior calf so will only fit very wee legs.
