I figured that when I put anything on my bike that has real life testing to prove my dedication to a manufacturer or online company that has great customer service and products I need to share. All of us when buying bikes look for the best value, protection, and items that assist us with better visibility, etc….real life reviews are what I look for and they are hard to come by when reading magazine reviews. Just for the record I am not paid to endorse any products. I just share what works well for me. I also share what I would buy again and again.
If you buy from them mention my blog or name…you never know!
Revzilla is an online motorcycle everything you could dream of site that we have now partnered with on our blog. If you look to the right on any page you will see a Revzilla widget. Feel free to click the “ad” if you want to peruse their site and make a purchase. This is our little way to try to recoup some costs associated with running a blog like this.
I did not know this…someone made this comment…so, if you call in an order outside this blog and tell them about me, it would help…thanks again. Leslie
The reason I am writing to you, I ordered my first item from Revzilla. I asked them if I could get you the credit for linking me to them and they said yes. Since I travel, I am not able to use online, as my shipping address is always changing, so I call them direct. So, you might share to your followers, that you can get credit at Revzilla, by just telling the order taker, that you were linked/referred to them by; Advgrrl. They have you on file there and are happy to give you that credit.
Great customer service, no restocking fees on returns and if you call or email Revzilla you get advise from guys and gals who ride. No strings attached, simply click the widget on our BLOG and shop away. You might see more companies on this site which would only be companies we have dealt with and can 100% agree they are the best at what they do. In the end, this is something I thought would help this blog grow and get even better for the future having some sort of infusion of cash. When you buy through our site we do get a commission. Just being open and transparent here. Not a bad thing if you need gear and stuff and inadvertently support us too. Thanks and happy shopping.
Heading to New York for US Thanksgiving. Haven’t been back for this holiday in so long. Time to be with family, see some more possible virtual friends and of course old friends alike. Looking forward to getting out of town – oops I have been out of town a lot lately on my bike but now I am flying.
November 19th 2014 – My Seattle Day Trippin’ to AltRider!
All pics clickable and videos throughout this post…short clips
Mileage 678 KM’s – left at 0600 and arrive home at 1930. Weather? Perfect, cloudy, some sun, cool temperatures and NO RAIN!
I left in the dark and came home in the dark. LOVE my new Aux lights and the LED low beam. Truly helped me when I decided to ride a road in Washington called the Chuckanut Drive. More about that later.
Once again I made an impromptu decision to finally get down to AltRider to meet Erik to get some upper crash bars installed on my bike. Erik and I tried to arrange this prior to my X Country 2014 Trip Continue reading →
All pics can be enlarged by clicking on them and I always add more pics at the end that aren’t always in my posts. Little raw videos at the end. Just FYI.
Starting out temperature was -18C for everyone else .4F and let me tell you this…IT WAS COLD!
The best part of my morning was Co Co’s being open at 0430 for some freshly brewed coffee.
Spoke with the owner for a bit who is a talented artist along with his wife. They have been at this location, right near the turn off for Osoyoos for 5 years. Nice ambiance and nice people. Coll decor too.
I wore my base layer, then my riding jeans minus the knee armour and my KLIM pants. Good thing I have lost a little more weight to be able to wear all that I had and still be able to move and get my leg over the seat. ;-) I always carry a back up heated liner. Gerbings WON today over my Powerlet. Was way warmer in the frigid cold with Gerbings than Powerlet. I constantly moved my toes in my boots and that saved me from having another frozen foot. So, I learned from yesterday’s arctic blast and things went better today. Once the temps got to reasonable ones I was free!
When I left Maple Ridge yesterday, Nov. 14th my plan initially was to take Route 3 to Osoyoos, BC. Last minute change as I always do I decided to take the Coquihalla Pass and then an off shoot of Route 5 to 5A. Continue reading →
