Get down to 14th Street in Williamsburg this Sunday, August, 25, for the 10th annual New York City Vintage Motorcycle Show, which this year goes by the name of Bored, Stroked & Ported.
We have a dozen different kinds of motorcycle gloves at the store and this season this one has been a pun-intended hands-down favorite.
We made a little video about our neighborhood. Check it out.
Since opening for business last year we’ve put together a collection of high-quality motorcycle gear at the same prices you’d find the same product for anywhere else. In some cases, the helmets, jackets, boots and gloves we sell are hard to find elsewhere. But sometimes they’re not. We know we’re not the only game in town. So why shop here?
To kick off the first season in business for Union Garage and to celebrate the five-year mark for Moto Borgotaro, we decided to throw a little get-together. We ordered a couple hundred pounds of crawfish from Louisiana, traded out all the bikes in the front of the motorcycle shop next door for a dozen picnic tables and invited all our friends and customers to come down to Union Street.
Sticking around the city for Memorial Day? After plenty of “unofficial” shop rides we’re putting this one on the calendar. Come one, come all. Just make sure you show up with a full tank of gas.
Italian boot company Stylmartin is back in business after a quarter-century hiatus. The brand has expanded on its motocross heritage to deliver serval urban offerings—the crown jewel of which is this full-grain leather options called the Indian. Complete with a Vibram sole, a sturdy shifter patch, inside and outside ankle reenforcement and a welted construction that can be resoled ad infinitum, this handsome boot boasted plenty of promise. See how it held up to six month’s worth of abuse.
Aether has earned a reputation for successfully marrying the functional demands of technical outerwear with the design dictates of urban living. Until just recently Aether’s product catalog was limited outdoor-oriented sports. But recently the company unveiled a refreshing new take on the motorcycle jacket. It’s called the Skyline. And we like it.
Fall is in full swing and temperatures are not going to climb much past the 50s for the rest of the year. Stay comfy and in control with these new gloves from REV’IT! that are specifically designed for winter and shoulder-season urban riding.
Meet the only jacket in existence that can be worn as a viable motorcycle jacket one minute, and walked right into the opera or any high-end restaurant without a second look the next. The Opera jacket is what Don Draper would wear if he needed to haul ass on a Triumph from his Madison Avenue office to his mistress’s apartment or some swank Manhattan steak house. Sure, it looks the part as much as any other dapper wool overcoat. But look beneath the surface to see that the Opera comes fully loaded.
