    Default Looking for reliable online gear stores!

    Hello, All lovely people! Tis the season of frigid cold weather, and the most dangerous time to ride, but well worth it. However I have decided it is time to upgrade my gear, but the issue is I just moved to Bellingham, Washington, and I no longer have a Eastbay Motorsport (Motorcycle store where I would buy my gear). So now that I want to buy gear, I no longer have any stores to go to and I always get nervous from ordering online, especially with certain return policies.

    Where have you ordered in the past that was online, and what was their customer service like, as well as their return policy?

    I've had good experiences with Motorcycle Superstore, Revzilla, and Bike Bandit. Bike Bandit gives you a discount on some things if you have a AMA membership.

    Motorcycle Superstore, Revzilla, Motorcyclegear.com (formerly NewEnough), and Atomic Moto are all pretty reliable. Revzilla has stellar customer service and a very good return policy, including helmets. Atomic Moto is smaller, but based in Bend, OR if you are in a hurry for stuff.

    LMK what kind of gear you're looking for. I have some high quality gear that I have to sell (heated and otherwise).

    I have a ton of summer riding gear, light weight, but with the proper skid pads. But now that winter is here and we would like to continue riding, unfortunately, the only gear I have breathes too much and that cold breeze while sitting for more than 2 hours can be unbearable. So looking for warm gear that breaths but not as much as the summer gear. I will need pants and a jacket; everything else is covered.

    I assume this means you have all the under layer you would need?

    Haha yes, this post is just to help me and anyone else in need a reliable online store. Or if a specific retail store that you shop at is great then listing those would be helpful!

    I like Atomic Moto. Their emails are surprisingly interesting.

    I have also ordered from Revzilla, good prices but no soul.

    Thanks for the tip on Atomic Moto, but what do you mean about Revzilla having no soul? They make a demo video about lots of their products. That's gotta take a lot of time and sort of shows they are real people. I bought my Shoei Hornet Helmet from them and received a phone call from them about it when I ordered it making sure I was who I said I was and making sure I got the right size. I thought that was pretty cool.

    Edit: now Motorcycle Superstore has no soul IMO, but they sure do ship fast and have tons of stuff at good prices..
