Gimme Gear, Dear

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! We often post …

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?

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.

East Side Re-Rides Now Hiring

The above title is perhaps misleading, because I’m only looking to hire someone on a once-in-a-while basis to sit amongst the leather while I happen to be out of town at the same time as my regular replacement. Truly, it’d be only a chunk of days here and there — …

Jeepers, inundated! I mean, SALE! SALE!

I just got in 50 pairs of boots in all sizes and a jeebusload of leather. If you come and buy something before I’ve done all the work of writing that particular sucker up and doing a wee handwritten tag for it, I’ll give you 10% off, just for saving …

I’m Westward Bound Bound

That post title was entirely too much fun to type. I’m packing up bins and bins of some rather nice leathers and boots to take to the Westward Bound conference, where I’ll be vending for the weekend. Come on by and see what I’ve got! (How am I going to …

My sidewalk! Yay heavy machinery!

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.  I’ve turned the music up to cover …

Winter Holiday Hours. I mean Days.

Hello, O Christmas Shoppers and other leather-loving folks. Here’s what’s what over the holiday: Until closing on Thursday, December 22, everything is business as usual. Starting Friday Dec 23rd, East Side Re-Rides will be closed so Elaine can dive into family, friends, feasting, festing, and various fun practices until everything …

Me and The Loved One checked out the Viberg factory in Victoria, BC, and I just picked up a pair of new Viberg boots –much like those pictured here– for my own personal feet.

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.

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….
