Brussels?

Hi, I am looking for a motorcycle store in Brussels hopefully near downtown. I was interested in a store that has Sidi boots and Boxer helmets, Rukka jackets or anything else that is European and cool. Does anybody know a good place? Thanks!

As a small update to the suggestions made there: RAD now also have a shop in Zaventem. They also have one in Sint-Pieters-Leeuw. Not really downtown Brussels, but only just outside the ring road.

Thanks for the replies guys. Yeah I guess I was looking more for some other stuff. Is it me, or does Rad just not seem like a serious enough motostore? Anyway, I was trying to get out of going all the way to the fc-moto store address:
Aachener Straße 21
52146 Würselen, Germany
But it's only 145km so thats not so bad. Seems like the more east and south you go in Europe, the more motorbike riders there are. Thanks guys!

FC-Moto is definitely a nice store, and like you said, not that far away either. And if you want to ride to Aachen anyway, might as well pass by the Louis Megashop, plenty of clothing to be found there as well.

RAD is a chain, very comparable to Hein Gericke and they are definitely not bad. I usually get my boots and helmets there. There's also EKO in Kontich, not too far from Brussels either and they have plenty of choice as well. Helpful staff and lots of different models and sizes in stock, albeit from a limited number of brands.

If you are looking for something tailor made, check out Motokouture in Zwevegem.
