     Bikes, Blues and BBQ 2019 rally is scheduled for September 25th through 28th and we can’t wait to hear the rumble in the Ozarks.  If you have not experienced the roads of the Ozarks, then you are in for a wonderful, fun experience and roads you will never forget.

     Bikes, Blues and BBQ is the world’s largest charity motorcycle rally that benefits women, children, and the underserved members of the Northwest Arkansas community. Over the course of our 19 years, we have realized over $2 million to local charities. We pride ourselves in being a family friendly event, inclusive of all members of the community and in no way condone or accept racism, white supremacy, bigotry, fascism, intolerance or hate speech. We look forward to another successful event. Can’t wait to see you in September!

Wingstuff - Honda Goldwing Parts and Accessories
          - http://wingstuff.com/shop/gold_wing_gl1800
   There's nothing like the open road, really.  When going on a long-distance road-trip, it's vital that we take the time to do a little planning.  Fortunately, this is the perfect time of year to carefully plan and plot our next adventure!  What are your rituals and traditions when it comes to getting ready for your next big ride?


Swivel Hitches - OpenRoad Outfitters
    Swivel adapters are commonly known as "swivel hitches."  Not sure how they got that name, but it does lead to some confusion about the product.  Swivel adapters install in the tongue of your trailer and allow the coupler to pivot.  If the bike goes down the swivel adapter will keep the tounge of the trailer from twisting.


     We're a team of motorcycle riders committed to providing you, our valued customer, quality products, exceptional service and the best shopping experience on the net.  From OEM parts; to tires; to riding apparel; to helmets; to accessories - we provide products for Touring, Cruisers, Adventure Touring, Street, and Dirt bikes, to ATV and UTV.


Polar Breeze Bandanas - The Cool way to beat the heat....
     Just soak the bandana in water prior to use and the microbeads absorb the water.  Place around the neck or head and the bandana cools by evaporation, reducing your body temperature by 3-4 degrees.  Great for motorcycling, gardening or yard work, hiking, hunting, fishing, concerts, camping, jogging, cycling, construction or many other physical activities.  "I have worn my Polar Breeze bandana (the same one) the past 4 summers while riding to Bar Harbor, ME - Sturgis, SD - Mackinac Island, MI - Glacier National Park, MT - Key West, FL and more.  It really works!  Bought one for my wife and Christmas gifts for friends.  Highly recommend." - Pat Willis, 2016
