That's an insult to Harbor Freight. HF has some things that are actually pretty good. Cycle Gear has very little in the way of good stuff.

I sometimes pick up some oil and such there, but not often. I bought the freezeout gear there when it was on sale. They say you can return it for up to 5 years or so for any reason.

Their cold gear gets good ratings, only thing I have bought from them was Engine Ice, and that's because it was on sale lol

The Freeze-Out shirts are actually pretty decent, especially if you get them on sale. I wish we had one in Springfield, if nothing else at least for the tires.

Had a lowside at around 40mph and went right through the gloves. He said had he not picked his hands up while sliding he would have been rashed up on his palms! I think for the person that is in a bind and can't afford the gear right away, great deal but even then my advice would be to save up the money and then get some decent gear. Doesn't have to be Dainese but there are tons of options that are inexpensive that are made with greater quality than the CG branded stuff.
ohhh....that's right. My bad. I got confused between street & steel and speed & strength. Started thinking other-than CG brands when he started talking about sedici and what have you. Gotcha.

He is risen!

Cycle Gear is essential. They may have some shitty stuff but they also sell top brand stuff. Too many times I had to go there in a pinch to get oils, tires, suits, parts, etc.

They do have killer sales at times where you can get top brand stuff for cheap too.

While you can save at times shopping online. There are times you will need to get something asap.

If you race, you can actually get race support from them which isn't too shabby. I think they will also mount and balance your tires for free if you have race support. That in itself is huge.

Not the one in Tulsa, OK. It's pretty much gone to total crap (other than tires and a half-dozen Shoei helmets in stock). It was the last, half-decent gear store in the region, now it's toast. We do not have crap to go to as far as a brick-n-mortar store to shop for gear in the mid-west, it's all on-line for us.

Yeah the one here is located in Kansas which is a no helmet state so they just sell the low end of Shoei and then their cheap shit brands in helmets.
