Tunnels and Route 66 in N. AZ





Old railroad tunnel and forgotten pieces of Old 66. My sons first trip on a bike, a bit over 100 miles and a huge grin at the end! A bit far from the valley but worth every minute!

Where do you buy motorcycle gear?

Hey everyone,

Where do you all go to buy motorcycle gear out here? I feel like the only place to order adventure gear for the bike or protective gear for a rider is through a catalog or online. But, that doesn't offer me the opportunity to try it on and see how it fits. I know there are places like ride now or the harley dealer but unless I want to wear stuff that will take me across town without a whole lot of protection then I'm out of luck.

Where does everyone go for their stuff?

I live in Mesa and I usually go to Cycle Gear.

Here's their map of Arizona locations.

Enjoy!

Cycle Gear is a good one, and the Helmet Center is another good one ( http://www.thehelmetcenter.com/).

i've been here for a while and it's just fine.
when you do some of your old rides again, you will say
......hmmn, i never noticed that before......
the thrill will still be there and there will be opportunites to
PIN IT !!!
so heal proper, do what the rehab dude sez,
put proper nutrition in the temple and you should be good to go......

redneck cafe racing.....
