You may not believe it – I know I couldn’t – but a search for “Harley-Davidson shirts” is a hugely popular moto-related Google querie, drumming up almost 10,000 hits a month. I mean, I know The Bar and Shield is a popular brand to wear, and The Motor Company has its adoring fans, but I had no idea so many people were searching for Harley apparel. Wanting to see what all the fuss was about, I popped the search into Amazon to see what came up. Here you’ll find 10 of the most popular selections people are buying.
Congratulations to all of you who’ve survived the holiday season (relatively) unscathed—you deserve a reward, and some of the web’s biggest moto gear retailers have got you covered. Both Revzilla and Cycle Gear (among others) have been discounting some of your favorite motorcycle gear as we count down the final days of 2018. In the case of Revzilla, their aptly named “ Holiday Hangover Sale” covers a range of riding gear and casual gear from a ton of different brands. Cycle Gear on the other hand is looking ahead to 2019, and their multi-category sale seems to have been meant as an early 2019 promo that they decided to launch early. This January Clearance Sale deals in riding gear, helmets, bike parts, and other goodies. Of the range of deals, here are a handful that stood out to us as being worth a closer look.
It’s flying under an odd name, but Revzilla’s new Orange Week Sale is giving you yet another great excuse to shop for motorcycle gear in time for the holidays (whether for yourself or for others). They’re blowing the doors off all sorts of moto apparel and accessories, with daily deals being added every 24h, and other deals lasting all the way through the week. Of the many deals on the list ( the full list can be found here), here are some of the biggest savings we spotted so far.
It’s not even Black Friday yet, and Revzilla has gone full bore into sales mode across their site. We’ve already reported on other holiday savings, but over the weekend they announced a 20% off sale on a selection of Bell Helmets. Of the 20+ offerings up for grabs, we’re pretty stoked about the graphics on the well-reviewed Bell Qualifier DLX Devil May Care helmet, currently marked down to $199.99.
You can find a cheap motorcycle phone mount all over the internet these days, but pricing versus quality don’t seem to run entirely linear. After a bit of digging the evidence is clear; yes you can spend $50-60 on a higher end mount that will be rock solid, but there are also a few great well-built buys out there that don’t break the bank. Enter the Roam Universal Premium Bike Phone Mount for Motorcycles—a simple and sturdy mount currently on sale for $12.98 with free shipping via Amazon. with over 4,700 customer reviews and an average score of 4.4 out of 5, this mount is tough enough to do the trick on a budget. If you do a fair bit of off-road riding, even if just on bumpy logging roads, we’d suggest going the heavy duty route, but if you’re a commuter/highway cruiser there’s no sense breaking the bank here.
This motorcycle helmet sale over at Cycle Gear is a big one, including a ton of our favorite helmet brands including Arai, Bell, HJC, Shoei, and many more. Literally hundreds of offerings are up for grabs for discounts ranging from 15% to over 60% off, covering a healthy mix of styles from full-face street helmets to helmets for motocross and ATV/UTV riders as well. Solid colors, race replicas, and bold graphic helmets are all part of the equation as well, and a quick skim revealed that a number of HJC’s Marvel Comics series helmets ( Captain America, The Punisher, Iron Man, and others) are up for grabs for a reasonable 20% off. If you missed the info on the Revzilla End of Season Clearout sale we covered a few weeks back (it’s still on!), here’s another chance to save big on new gear.
Motorcycles are awesome. I think we can all agree on that. You probably wouldn’t be reading this right now if you thought otherwise. Unfortunately, though, motorcycling is not the cheapest of hobbies, and that’s why most of us see it as more of a lifestyle. With the holidays around the corner, here are a few gift ideas that in most cases ought to make your two-wheeled life a little easier, and more fun!
