Recently we used this space to explain why we’re skipping this year’s Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride, and we blew it. The tone of the previous post was not constructive and needlessly snarky. Not long after posting we got plenty of feedback. Some was supportive, much was not. We listened. And we now admit: we f*cked up. Here’s how.
We are producing two short videos for this year’s DGR. One silly, and one serious. This is the silly one.
After 10 drawn-out months of renovation we’ve finally popped the champagne and christened the new showroom. It’s right next door to the old space so come down and see us. And if you missed the opening party, don’t sweat it. We’ll be here for the next 10 years and there will be plenty more to come.
Four winners, three continents, $1800 in prizes. We’ve finally tracked down all the lucky prizewinners in our first-ever Great Big Gear Giveaway. We featured the contest on BikeEXIF and got so many entries we felt obliged to sweeten the pot with an extra tool roll. The winners hail from Australia, Ireland, Wisconsin and Strong Island, NY. Here are their stories.
We’re proud to welcome Belstaff as the newest addition to our roster. This iconic British brand has been making motorcycle jackets for more than 91 years, and with some sensible updates like D30 armor and modern waterproofing, they’re better than ever.
We’ve partnered up with Bike EXIF to offer a fantastic one-time opportunity to win one of three blockbuster prizes. And all it’ll cost you is a quick game of 20 questions.
Union Garage is pleased to announce a short film that takes a rare look behind the walls of Moto Borgotaro. Yes, we finally convinced Peter Boggia to allow rolling video cameras into his shop. Five of them, to be precise. Plus a sound guy.
Vanson has been making motorcycle jackets and race suits for nearly 40 years. So when it came time to produce the first product collaboration to have the Union Garage label inside it, there wasn’t much question about where to go.
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?
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.
