Safety First Bike Night.......Tues June 8th

Come join us for our next Bike Night on TUESDAY, JUNE 8TH.

This will be an RS Taichi sponsored event. The U.S. Distributor for RS Taichi will be present answering questions and bringing a huge amount of inventory in all sizes/colors for you to checkout, try on and add to your apparel inventory.

It's your chance to touch, feel and learn everything you wanted to know about the RS Taichi product line. I think it's the best stuff out there on market.


Date: Tuesday, June 8th

Time: 6:30 - whenever

FREE Food/Drinks: Sample our world famous, homemade Italian Beef sandwiches!!!!


See everybody then. I'll be back on Monday, June 7th.

Cheers,
Kevin

I might have to do that, but are you sure Wink is into motorcycle stuff, I don't think he has ever shown any interest in it.

Hey everyone....I just got back from vacation and just talked to Audrey.

We are still on for the Bike Night tommorrow regardless of weather. She has to be at another event later in the week and we can't move it back a night.

Even if it is raining it's a perfect time to drive you car so you can take some stuff home

This really is a great opportunity because Audrey has been carrying RS Taichi forever and knows the product and the company inside and out. So come prepared with lots of questions and also it's a great opportunity to phyically see and try on lots of there different product. They really are cutting edge on a lot of things they are doing. You won't be disappointed in there product line.

See you tommorrow!

Good times. The beef was delish, and the RS Taichi gear is the shizzle. A bit pricy, but it seems like it's worth it. Even brand new, the leather feels more broken in than my 3 year old shift jacket. I decided not to try on a 1-piece, my wallet said 'thanks'

Thanks everyone for coming. There stuff is just really, really good quality. I've never had a customer that has bought there stuff ever comeback to me and say it wasn't worth the money....everyone loves it.

Yep, it costs a little more dough but the quality of protection and fit far outway and extra $75-$100 on other cheaper brands on the street jackets. Let's face it, we piss more money away on one night of drinking than that than a jacket you wear all the time for years.

There leathers are bulletproof in the japanese cowhide and significantly lighter than a regular cowhide suit. Audrey had one of Bobby Fongs suits that he wore racing for me that he had crashed in over 20 times and it was still fully protected and looked good......how many $600 suits would you thru and spend more money as opposed to spending $1,500 for a top of the line suit that fit awesome and is bulletproof.

Great time. Good food. Thanks to Audrey and crew for bringing out all the items. It's so nice to be able to try items on without worrying about shipping fees and restock charges. I picked up a great set of gloves for the track. So comfy and much better protection than the ones I've been using.

Thanks for hosting this event Kevin!

Wow thanks to Audrey for bringing so much product out and making me want to spend my tax return before I get it. LOL. And the Beef was amazing. Good thing the event started to break up or I'd still be there eating.

And Kevin thanks for putting on another good event. Hopefully the next one wont have rain.

You wanna see my itinerary?
