Motorcycle gear around Beverly Hills?

Hello fellow Advriders! I will be visiting LA soon and I was wondering where I could shop motorcycle gear (especially clothing and boots) in the Beverly Hills area or somewhere close by. Any suggestions on shops?

Thanks in advance,
V_1200

Dirt? Street? Both?

Can't think of any near Beverly Hills, but there are lots of places around L.A. Do you have a particular brand of boot or and/or clothing that interests you?

Hi Groop, thank you for your answer.

Both would be nice. Alpinestars would be the brand of choice but any other reputable brand is welcome.

Dirt/street/ADV is the first question, price range is the next. If you want Klim/Rev'it and similar, go to Beach Moto. I don't recall boot selection, but they have a nice selection of jackets and pants.
In the SF Valley, you can check MX Giant in Canoga Park (mostly dirt) and there's a place in Thousand Oaks with a decent range (again, more dirt focus). If you're up for a ride to San Bernardino, check out Chaparral.

For ADV gear like Klim/Rev'it is Beach Moto the only place in So-Cal or does Chaparral have similar gear?

Chaparral has Klim, but no Rev'it. I don't think they had Rukka either, so Klim was the only premium brand. Same price as everywhere else.

I like Motorhelmets in Fullerton for Klim gear. They have been very good to me. Whatever they don't have on the floor they can get quickly, and for less money than other shops. Chaparral is much larger- and they do have great annual sales- but they usually sell at MSRP
