Deerskin Teepee Boots ! June 09, 2017 15:01

Graceful, soft and majestic.
Your feet feel like they are floating on little bouncy clouds when you take a step in these Teepee Booties. Not only are these little boots sleek and fashion forward...they are handmade in Wisconsin, USA just how we like them.
They run in whole sizes only and slightly big (maybe by a half of a size). Keep in mind they are Deerskin and will stretch out a little bit so perhaps it is best to go slightly tighter than looser. The soles are made of rubber and they come in a beautiful Saddle color, Cream and Black of course. 
Be prepared to spoil your feet! After walking in these Teepee Booties you will not want to wear anything else. They slip on super easily and almost feel like a house slipper but with more support. Imagine being able to walk around all day with that at home feeling on your feet...AND looking good! They completely flex with your feet so your feet are not tired of being in shoes all day.
But what can I wear them with?
These little Teepee boots have such a casual comfortable feel with a high end elegance being that they are soft Deer Skin so you can wear them with mostly anything. A pair of cute shorts with a flowy top or even a pair of ripped jeans and a tank top these will truly be your everything shoes.

NY TIMES: How to Get Eau de Moto, No Death Ride Required May 31, 2017 16:42

Critical Shopper Jon Caramanica for The New York Times came to visit us!

 

Photo by: Casey Kelbaugh

Here is a little bit of what Jon had to say:

"....for the truly curious, an alcove at the back of the store had real promise: a wall of helmets, in more styles than you might imagine. A staffer who was tolerant of my inquiries encouraged me to have fun, so I engaged in some motorcycle-chic cosplay, from midcentury cosmonaut (Biltwell, $200) to hunger-game futurist (Blauer, $425)."

Does My Helmet Fit ? April 19, 2017 16:20


 

Tricks and Tips for a Proper Fit

One of the most frequently asked questions is "Does my helmet fit? and we are here to help!

.....Sure you can wrap a tape measure around your head and get exact sizes to match with your helmet but who really wants to do that? Here are 3 very basic and easy tips and tricks to make sure you have a proper fitting helmet.

1. Make sure your helmet is DOT approved! 

 This is essential. Without a helmet that passes safety regulations fit and comfort are completely irrelevant.

2. Your helmet should be as tight as possible with out hurting.

Remember at higher speeds and after wear your helmet will both loosen and shake a little bit however, when if you feel any pressure points this helmet is not for you. After time those pressure points may become painful headaches and distract you from the task at hand...riding! 

3. Your size does not mean that is your helmet.

Everyone has a different shaped head and face. Every helmet company makes a different shaped shell. Typically they are either oval or round. Sometimes certain helmet companies will not fit your specific head shape comfortably even if it is the correct size. Going up or down a size will not fix this as you are then compromising fit!

 

Shake your head yes, then no. Does your helmet wiggle? It is too big. Whether you choose a full face helmet or a 3/4 and even a half...you should get that nestled in feeling.

 

Side note:

A great beginners helmet is a Biltwell Gringo S. It fits most head shapes and has a very comfortable padding set up. If you are looking for something with even more coverage or you are just not into that vintage style...a Simpson Street Bandit is another great beginners option. Simpson helmets come with an extra set of cheek pads . Why? Lets say you are a size Medium but you have really chubby cheeks....This does not mean you are now a size Small as the circumference of your head is still a Size Medium. Simply trade out the larger cheek pads for smaller ones and bam! You've got a perfect fit.

 


Daytona's Retro Helmet - Ride With Modern Comfort April 04, 2017 15:22

Vintage and Retro is all the craze right now, but is it safe? Comfortable?
Daytona has the answer. YES ! The Daytona full face Retro Ride helmet meets DOT safety standards while maintaining a classic simple style.
Lets talk specs:
Weight : 2lbs 6.2oz
Material: Fiber Glass Shell, Nylon/Poly blend lining
Shield: 2 Snaps, 1 on each side, Not removable
Certifications: DOT
Color: White/Black Pin Stripe
Shape: Slightly Oval
The Daytona Retro Ride is a winner for the price. If you are looking for a non-expensive helmet with simplicity and style...this is your guy.
But is it comfortable? The fiberglass shield makes this helmet very light weight but the padding gives you the comfort of safety. It hugs around the nape of your neck and high onto your cheeks giving you that nestled in secure feeling. Although it does not have air vents, the shield is not air tight so fogging is little to none.
There is more!
 Because we believe in this helmets enjoyability we are having a sale until Friday!!
Normally Priced at $120 (still a steal)
Sale $ 90 bucks! Take advantage!

Vanson Waxed Cotton Jackets : Leather Alternative March 30, 2017 14:20

The Stormer. The Redemption. 

Vanson Leather Company is known for their "Built to Last" Motto are classic American made quality jackets.

Love Vanson but not looking to wear a leather jacket in the middle of the summer while you ride? Let us introduce you to Waxed Cotton.

Waxed Cotton was created in the 1850's and was widely used for farmers and gamekeepers, so durability was obviously necessary. As motorcycling became popular the waxed cotton jackets benefits were utilized and became the leather jacket alternative. It is waterproof, light weight and flexible. The waxy texture of the jacket helps prevent tearing and road rash but to be clear is NOT KEVLAR. It is not meant for racing but basic motorcycle use.

Now lets talk styles....

The Redemption: Classic, Casual, Cool.

This jacket is a button down 4 pocket style with a collar. It's perfect for dressing up a little or having the option to at least. It has the classic look with the benefits of durability. It is so much more than just a riding jacket! The perfect date night or dinner jacket with that cool guy tone. It is available in Black and Olive Green.  

        

The Stormer: The name says it all

This jacket is not only a staple item in your closet but will surely become your favorite. With 4 snap pockets in the front for easy access it is nothing short of practical and cool. There is a neck strap and double wind zipper flap to ensure you are breaking wind with this guy. Perfect for riding but also just an awesome piece to own for chilly nights. Available in Tan, Olive Green and Black of course.

 

       


BRAND PROFILE: Grifter March 24, 2017 15:12

     We are very excited to be a carrying Grifter gloves at Genuine Motorworks. Grifter is known for their updated moto gloves and believes you shouldn't be cornered into a one-note style of motorcycle gloves.
     They began their journey in an effort to create a quality leather gloves without compromising style. It led Grifter to Gloversville, New York, where they found the remnants of an industrial boom. The community was framed by the glove manufacturing industry. But of course time passes and quality products were loosing popularity as business was taken over by overseas factories.
     This did not discourage Grifter as they partnered with a glove maker in Gloversville. The product quality is not compensated. Down to the leather, which is tanned locally. Just check out the Rangers Gloves.
"Every set of gloves we sell was hand-sewn by a skilled American."
     Now this is what we love to hear!
It is clear they have accomplished their goal. Congrats Grifter!

Simpson Ghost Bandit: Best Bandit Yet? March 19, 2017 18:16

 

 Described by Simpson themselves:

Designed 100% with motorcycle riders in mind, the Simpson Ghost Bandit is prepared to handle just about any type of riding in killer style and complete comfort. The lightweight shell has been aerodynamically tuned for motorcycle riding, and is fully ventilated for maximum airflow when, and where, you need it most. Integrated speaker and microphone pockets make it easy to install your favorite communication device, and a drop-down sun visor makes riding through changing light conditions a breeze.

 

A hands on observation:

All of the Simpson Bandits are great durable helmets however the Ghost Bandit is particularly special. Besides the amazing and obvious things, such as the drop down sun visor and more air ventilation, it has other perks. This helmet is truly the upgraded version of the other 2 (Street Bandit and Outlaw).

The locking mechanism is different on the shield for both comfort and durability. The lifting "up and out" type of shield that the other Simpson Helmets have after some wear eventually become loose because of the way it is opened. This helmet will not have that problem with a flip up and down lock. Simply push the lock button up or down and the shield does what you want it to.

There is a chin guard on this helmet as well to prevent air from entering while riding at higher speeds which is also a pleasant little upgrade. The padding on the lower end of the helmet is made to fit your face like a glove to prevent rattling at high speeds.

 

Just some food for thought while deciding on which Simpson helmet to purchase !

BRAND PROFILE: Thorogood Boots March 17, 2017 14:24

 

 

"Since 1892, with the introduction of the first "jobber" boots (job-fitted safety work boots), Weinbrenner has been a leading manufacturer and innovator in the footwear industry, initiating many of the significant occupational safety features that are common today."

This statement cannot be anymore closer to the truth. Most of us all know and love Thorogood boots. Weinbrenner is the company behind your most reliable, classic, and durable favorites.

These boots are made in the U.S.A which is our backbone here at Genuine Motorworks. So it was a given for us to carry such a great product that is made in North-central Wisconsin. All the while being Union Made!

The Weinbrenner company was started by Albert Weinbrenner with Joseph Pheifer in 1892 at the age of 27. They gained immediate success after creating the "jobber" boot with great craftmanship and innovation. By 1908, the company was well known for making great and affordable boots. You can only imagine how in demand the shoes became that they opened 5 distrubution center and this is how the Wing & Wheels logo came about.

Now after 125 years, we are so happy to celebrate Thorogood's longevity and excellence. Even adding new colors to their roster, like these great Roofer Boots in Navy.

Cheers to our friends!
