As any motorcycle enthusiast will tell you, it’s not just having a good bike. Sure, that’s the main part, and with that, you’re away. But in real bike culture, you also need to have the gear. Whether you’re the leather jacket type, or the armor bodysuit type aboard a crotch-rocket, you need the right cruising gear and apparel. And it also doesn’t stop at clothing. There’s helmets, gloves and other add-ons for your bike.
Now, if you scraped up every penny you had to get the bike of your dreams (or at least a stepping stone towards it), then you probably aren’t too keen (or able for that matter) to spend a huge amount of money on these additional items. This is where looking for good deals comes into play.
You have your basic options, just as with anything else. You can look online for deals in auctions and sites like craigslist. You’ll probably have some luck there, but another usually untapped resource for finding the right motorcycle gear is the local pawn shop.
The best pawn shops will have a lot of different items, and motorcycles (and gear) are commonly pawned. This means that there is opportunity to score a good bargain on some of this type of stuff. Sure, it’s used, but if you can look past that then you can really save some money.
Having a motorcycle and all the gear to go with it doesn’t need to cost a small fortune. Take advantage of deals wherever you can find them.
