Last fall after the 2016 Brooklyn Invitational we sat down with show co-founer Keino Sasaki and talked to him broadly about the Invitational’s reason for being, and specifically about the 2016 invitees, and how he and his partners John Copeland and Jessica Wertz decide how to curate the field every year. And even though the show doesn’t officially crown a winner, we got Keino to name his favorite.
The apparel team over at Roland Sands Design has been working overtime and the results are evident in the latest crop of options coming from this SoCal apparel brand. For this fall riding season we’re bringing in some of the most exciting new styles to carry the RSD badge since the iconic Ronin jacket first debuted back in 2013.
This Saturday, August 19, organizers Girard Fox and Tim Warner will open the gates to “The Lot” in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, for a refreshingly simple sort of motorcycle show. This free event runs from 2pm through midnight and will feature food trucks, live bands, local beer, and a sprawling array of pre-1983 bikes inside the fence—including, perhaps, yours?
We put on a one-day Italian Sporting Bike show in collaboration with Alpinestars and Moto Borgotaro. And now we’ve launched comprehensive (and interactive) show coverage chronicling the event.
If a world-class, Guggenheim-grade motorcycle museum installation isn’t enough, we’ll also be kicking off a special week-long Alpinestars popup shop right next to Union Garage.
On Saturday, June 10, we hosted a one-day motorcycle show to celebrate the best of 1970′s Italian motorcycle design and engineering. For those who couldn’t make it, here’s what you missed.
According to the latest industry statistics, female riders account for about 13% of motorcyclists in the U.S. (That figure goes up to 25% if you factor in those riding as passengers too). We’re all about growing those numbers in any way we can, and are dedicating this weekend to riders of the fairer sex—through a store-wide sale, an inspirational Ride Report presentation in-store Saturday Night, and a Sunday morning ride out (guys are welcome too, but only as a plus-one).
Join us this Saturday, April 22, 2017 for a live presentation by our friends Matias Corea and Joel Estopà, who are fresh back in New York after just completing an epic six-month journey from Brooklyn, NY, to the end of the Earth—Ushuaia, Argentina.
REVIT has used New York neighborhoods as product names for years—see: the Redhook, the Williamsburg and the Flatbush jackets. But if any product is deserving of NYC nomenclature, it’s this new Alpha RF pant.
Matias Corea and Joel Estopa left Brooklyn back in October bound for the end of the earth—Ushuaia, Argentina. Their two mid-80’s BMW R80 G/S’s have so far fared brilliantly, with 14,000 miles down and another 6,000 to go. One of the bikes even recently survived a spectacular high-side crash in Boliva. We phoned up our favorite Spanish Evel Knievel impersonator to get an update.
