There must be some kind of retail magic around this tore, because 99.936% of the folks who walk through my door are sweet and friendly folks. Today the store is filled with the sound of heavy metal music and people giggling as they work out where the damn zipper on the chaps goes. Are these inside out? Upside down? What the hey?
You’re looking at a tiny bit of the newly-installed floors for the upcoming new home of our store. So exciting! Now to do the other 3876238976 things on my list right here….
Thanks Billy-Jay, for donating your old ‘cycle! We’ll treat it well! Dear Motorbike Peeps! East Side Re-Rides is moving to 16th Ave at Main St for the New Year. We’re super excited that the new space has a nice big bright display window, and we are hopeful that someone has …
There’s one single solitary hanger in the store that’s proportioned a bit… differently from the rest.
I just got a package in the mail In the Royal Mail from Great Britain, actually. The package said “One pair leather motorcycle trousers”. Trousers, huh? I am charmed. Charmed.
Motorcycle photographs wherein the motorcyles are made up entirely of naked yoga experts in body pant. Just… wow. http://www.geekologie.com/2012/10/motorcycles-made-from-boypainted-ladies.php
If You’re under 5″ tall and enjoy hurtling around the courses with a dirtbike, do I have MX gear for you! Armour, helmets, pants, jerseys and a brand new No Fear set in youth medium. Just sayin’.
Good motorcycle gear is flooding into the store, and zooming out just as fast. If you’ve got something in your closet, take advantage of the spring rush, and bring it to me, so I can convert it into a cheque for you. Ahhhh! Hurry! They’re lining up!
Dear medium-small motocross-ridin’ woman;
I have some nice gear for you here. And it’s not pink.
… except the helmet. Sorry about that part.
Hullo, gear-toting universe. There is a remarkable rush on large helmets and small leather jackets, so if you have any of these items stored and little-used in your closet, now is a good time to haul ’em out and bring them to me so the hungry masses can $nap ’em …
Get your motorcycle up and running for spring! Here’s BCAA’s collection of tips….
The city waterworks crew is carving a hole in the sidewalk 3 feet from ReRide’s front door (no, don’t worry, you can still get in to buy things!) and I get a ringside seat on the concrete-carving wheel thing and the backhoe-looking thing.Â I’ve turned the music up to cover …
Jeepers, these are amazing boots. They make even old-style Daytons feel like lightweights. I can’t wait to see what they look like with a few years wear into them.
I have a thing about boots, and I seem to be going kinda boot-heavy on the Find of the Day category. So I’m going to split it up into Boot of the Day and Find of the Day (which won’t then be entirely about boots, and we’ll see whether that …
It’s almost Halloween, which is the most common time for ordinary folks to dress like superheros and run around in spandex. I’ve got a wee separate “Scratch n’ Dent” helmet section that I keep mostly for this time of year. I’ve got a bunch of sizes in varied styles (beanie, …
Yes, that particular beautiful helmet you’d been looking at sold three weeks ago. Yes, I know you gambled that it wouldn’t sell yet, and the price would therefore be lower today, but in the meantime someone else came in and gave me money. Ruthlessly, I let them have the helmet. No, waving and huffing at the place on the shelf where it used to be won’t help. Don’t go away mad, now….
Adding machine just jumped on my head from a top shelf.Â Ow. Wee paper roll unscrolled all over me and the floor. I think it’s just overeager about month-end.
Some nice folks came in and bought some gear today. They said they’d found a single business card lying in a lonely parking lot in Chilliwack a while back, and that’s how they’d found out about the store. I’d never thought about that method of advertising, honestly.Â Now I wonder.
Hullo, claustrophobic lady who was looking for a hybrid (full face where all the chin stuff and visor can be shoved up temporarily so you can kiss your honey or talk to a cop or eat ice cream), I now have one in silver, size medium.
Thanks to good friend and part-time store-minder River Tucker for giving me a hand yesterday to re-organize the store to fit in the new rack for the new stuff coming in!Â Drop in and tell me what you think.
I found this pic on the internet. You know what these are? They’re tiny wee toy booties, made for action figure dolls. They’re 1/6 scale. Isn’t this… I dunno… sorta a cross between awful and awesome? Some poor fucker had to stitch these. Hopefully it was brownies (the elvish ones, …
Running a store catering to motorcycle riders is like running a whorehouse — a fair percentage of the time you can hear your customers coming.
