. . . There is something heartening about a group of adventure riders down the street who have the vision and technical expertise to create top-shelf, functional motorcycle gear every bit as good (maybe even better) than their corporate rivals worldwide. - Kit J. Vercella, January 2014, Kit And Caboodle, BMW Owners News magazine Happy New Year!
