    I think that he meant "motorcycle" in the search bar within the powersports section.

    Sorry, I sort of gave the short version.

    I type "Motorcycle" in the main page (i.e. under "all"). You could also go more specific here, i.e. "Motorcycle Jacket." Hit search.
    This brings up the departments on the left, I select "Motorcycle and powersports"
    Now select 70% or more off. This gets you to about 100K results, yikes!
    So here is where you need to get those results into more useable numbers. So I usually select a price range like $5 to $75. I may also reduce it to 4 star ratings or higher.
    After that, the main way I filter is to select "See more" under the Brand section on the left. This brings up a list of brands as well as links to letters A-Z.
    I go through A through Z and see what pops up. So under "A" there may be 50 brands, but I only look at things like Arai, Alpinestars, AGV and ignore Alla Lighting or other off brands. Usually there will only be about 5 items under each brand. I can go through the whole alphabet in about 15 minutes.
    A lot of it is nothing special, but occasionally there is a gem, especially in sizes at the far end of the spectrum.
    But there are frequently things like the gloves above or these Medium Cortech gloves for $11 (1 pair left, regularly $60):

    Got these for my turn signals... a bit brighter than the oem and less draw on system... so far so good.

    cost me 65 bucks us including shipping from shopgoodwill.com. I see lots of motorcycle stuff, autographs stuff , picture, even right now a script signed by everyone from doc quin medicine woman. You want it they are selling it . I m guessing people pass-away, kids move out and rather then finding out what it's worth it off to goodwill it goes. About the only hint I give is use the search function because lots of stuff doesn't end up in the right category.

    So I had to order 2 sizes up on the gloves, but it's not bad. wound up with three pairs of gloves, kept the small ones (size L) for a rider, gave the XL's to a friend that has just started riding, and kept the XXL's for my self. here are some photos... you can see in the last picture that the sides of the fingers are mesh.
