Ferno, Italy and Oss, Netherlands, October 3, 2017. Rizoma USA and REV’IT! USA have formed a partnership that gives REV’IT! USA exclusive distribution rights for the premium Italian parts and accessories brand in the United States and Canada, effective October 1, 2017. The alliance will create a position for Rizoma to more deeply penetrate the US and Canadian markets, and to deliver the highest level of service and support to its dealers.

REV'IT!, a global leader in protective motorcycle apparel, will migrate all operations for Rizoma US to its East Coast headquarters in Brooklyn, as of October 1.

Sport International Ivan Vos says, "This partnership highlights a shared passion for design, performance and innovation, and pushes forward our mission of delivering premium products to our retail partners in North America. We feel that there is excellent potential for both brands via this partnership.”

As with all our projects, we want to achieve the best possible result without compromising on our core values, and to do so, we must align with the best partners. This partnership was born through the sharing of this vision, with the aim of bringing Rizoma USA a new step towards the future.”

9 Days Til Christmas, Kriega R20 Backpack

The Kriega R20 Backpack is one of my favorite moto accessories. I've never worn any other backpack that was this comfortable to ride with. Fits my frame perfectly, not too small and not too big, just right for daily essentials like lunch, a change of shoes and an ipad and a small purse. If you want something for a 2-3 day weekend then an R25 is in order. But for the daily commuter, this is a must.

And today only, Revzilla is having a 10% off Kriega Sale. How convenient!

Vintage motorcycles. What's not to love? 

Vintage motorcycles. What's not to love? 

Okay, I'm posting this a little early because I just LOVE this gift idea.

This awesome calendar from the National Motorcycle Museum in Anamosa, IA is the perfect gift for anyone who rides. Who wouldn't love these kickass photos of men, women and children on motorcycles? 

Honor the history of motorcycling with this really cool calendar. I think even some car enthusiasts would love this. I don't use paper calendars anymore and I would LOVE this. I'm contemplating how many to order for Christmas gifts this month....

Buy a copy from their online store for $12.99 + free shipping here.

I love this Roland Sands Slam Wallet. It's tiny. Perfect if you just need to take essentials with you for the day while you're out riding: cash, credit card, driver license, insurance card. Done. 

Comes in black or tobacco and it's on SALE for $22.00 @ Revzilla

Unless your person is picky about wallets/accessories, then you may want to pass on this but I think it works well for everyone regardless if what he/she rides. What a great stocking stuffer.

My husband got this little handlebar bag for his Speed Triple last year and it's the *perfect* little bag. All the motorcycle needs is a handlebar to attach the bag with velcro. Minimal installation.

The Giant Loop Zigzag Handlebar bag retails for $55 and works on a variety of motorcycles including dirtbikes, cruisers, tourers, nakeds and classics. And it's just large enough for essentials: wallet, smartphone, keys, chapstick. Although i'm able to add a couple more small things like my sunglasses and garage door opener. I would call it water resistant since the zippers aren't sealed, so be sure to throw your wallet and phone into a tough little LokSak first.

Stuff this Alpinestars Tech Neck Warmer in your friend's/partner's/neighbor's stocking and they will make you brownies/cookies/muffins forever. Ok, maybe not forever. But if you're lucky they'll make you some as a thank you.

Who doesn't like staying warm? I mean, have you ever heard a motorcyclist say

"Naw, I hate being warm in the Winter. I'd rather be freezing". 

Okay, I've met lots of folks who run hot but who actually wants to be Freezing? No one. I wear a neckwarmer 365 days a year. Even when it's bloody hot, I still wear a really light one like this so I can sweat into something and my helmet/jacket doesn't rub on my skin. 

And if your person is really coldblooded, then he/she will want 2-3-4-5 of these in their stockings as backups. And for $19.95 it makes for a great stocking stuffer.

Happy Shopping and don't forget to come back tomorrow for Day 16.
