My Motoport Experiance

I just wanted to share my experience I had today at Motoport while purchasing my new riding gear. First let me start by saying that I have perused their website for the better part of a year and have been on the fence as to making a purchase from them.

Today I made an appointment to visit their business in San Marcos, CA. to get a first hand look at what they had to offer. So I arrive at the appointed time and I am met by the owner of the company himself! I was expecting a quick rundown of their clothing lineup followed by my order and purchase. Well, the owner had a completely different idea. He not only spent the next hour explaining the in's and out's of motorcycle "safety gear" and his approach to making the best product he can, but took me on a tour of his facility.

Well to say that I was impressed would be a severe understatement! He really opened my eyes to the amount of truly substandard motorcycle clothing that is out their today, even from the "big names". He is a guy who truly cares about making a product that will give a person the best protection possible.

I placed my order for a jacket and pants that will be custom fit and I am looking forward to receiving them in the mail in a few weeks. Anyone looking for the best riding gear possible should really take a look at his website.

Disclaimer: I am not affiliated with the company in any way, just a really satisfied costumer.

My Motoport overpants are 9 years old and I would guess that I've got over 150K miles on them. They build them things to last!

I ended up getting the Air Mesh Kevlar pants in black and the Ultra II Air Mesh Kevlar jacket in KTM orange. I was really impressed with the jacket color, the pictures don't do it justice. I also got the liners for both the jacket and pants.

After reading the testimonials and after what you just said with your own personal experience I really think I made the right decision.

The website sux but Wayne and his gear are awesome!

I have about 25,000 miles on pants and Jacket. The jacket I bought used but the pants were custom made. No complaints, never been down in it and hope I never am. Some people tell me I don't look sexy on my bike but frankly, I could give a damn.

Keep riding,

Gravity
