    We Are Now Open!

    Come by our store in Corona and recycle your quality previously enjoyed motorcycle riding gear at Motowearhouse or pick up some clean previously enjoyed riding gear at low, low prices.


    We buy jackets, pants, body armor, gloves and boots for both men and women, giving you the option to take cash or store trade on the spot. We even offer a consignment program without any fees! If you choose to take the proceeds from your consignment sale in the form of a store credit, there is no consignment fee*

    Of course all this means that you and your family can get great riding gear of all types at great prices at Motowearhouse. Kids grow like weeds and they need protection. Buy gear that’s new enough and trade it in when its no longer needed. Do this as many times as needed and maybe your kids will do it for your grandkids too.

    COME ON OUT SEPTEMBER 18TH AND SELL ANY AND ALL OF YOUR MOTO-RELATED STUFF

    OR JUST PROWL AROUND, EAT SOME GOOD GRUB, FLIRT WITH THE MOTOGIRLS AND DISCOVER DEALS INSIDE THE STORE OR OUT IN THE PARKING LOT.

    Just an FYI for AZ / Phoenix riders:

    For Immediate Release:

    We are very excited to announce that effective immediately, all MotoCity operations will be consolidated into our Anthem location. Our Avondale location will cease operations beginning the week of August 7th. We will go forward with five key brands, Yamaha, KTM, Kawasaki, Husqvarna, and Suzuki. Sales operations in Avondale, both units and parts, will begin to transition immediately and once any outstanding service work is concluded, the service operation will only be available to support the sales of remaining EZGO and CFMoto inventory. We will also be having a moving and ongoing yard sale in the Avondale location.

    We have of course given a great deal of thought to this move and have made the decision after reviewing all pertinent factors. We have concluded that our overall focus, our ability to serve our customers with the level of enthusiasm and knowledge you have come to expect from MotoCity, and the overall health of our business will benefit greatly from this consolidation.

    As always, with everything we do, it is our customers that make this all possible and for that we are truly thankful for each and every one of you! We do understand that this move will not positively affect you all and for that we are very sorry. We will certainly do everything we can to make the transition as seamless as possible.

    In addition, we will be going back to Tuesday through Saturday operational hours, again, this will allow us to regain a renewed focus and connection with our motorsports passions and allow us to more easily enjoy those passions alongside all of you!

    Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns.

    Sincerely,

    John and Wade Jenkins
    Owners

    Horizons Unlimited Mountain Madness "Granite Mountain"

    After a few months of planning and getting other things accomplished it's time to start on a new project. Yes, of course it's motorcycle related and goes by the name Horizons Unlimited Mountain Madness "Granite Mountain", or just HUMM Granite Mountain.

    This is a different kind of motorcycle event than I've been involved with over the years which is why I'm excited about the project and looking forward to bringing something new to off highway motorcyclists in Arizona. Imagine a team based dual sport ride combined with a navigational challenge in an area that has some of the best riding in the state. Yep, sounded good to me too :)

    The Horizons Unlimited team is a great group who have held these events all over the world. Below are details of the event and how it all works. Let me know if you have questions.

    Make your own adventure!
    Ride the HUMM in the rugged central mountain landscapes of Arizona! The 1st HUMM Granite Mountain will be held from April 13-15, 2018 in and around Prescott, Arizona. Test your map reading and navigation skills, find hidden secrets and enjoy the fabulous riding.

    Registration is open now with super early bird rates! www.horizonsunlimited.com/events/humm-arizona-2018/registration.php.

    What's a HUMM?
    Kinda like an off-road motorcycle scavenger hunt for teams of 2-4 bikes. Get your team together or enter solo and we’ll match you up! Winning demands strategy, teamwork, riding and navigation skills and pure fun! Come along and bring your friends - if you can handle the competition!

    What’s special about a HUMM?
    No set course!
    Unlike most dual sport rallies/rides, the HUMM has no set course! Each team gets a map and a HUMM Points Book on Day 1. Each checkpoint gets its own page with key info about its location and a score based on distance, degree of difficulty and scenic value - your team figures out how to get there. Since there are more checkpoints than any team can get to in the 2 days of the event, each team must devise its own strategy, so there is no set course. You're never following a string of riders down the same dusty road!

    Choose your own adventure!
    Whether you're new to off-road riding or a trail ninja, the HUMM lets you and your team choose your adventure. The emphasis is on strategy, teamwork, riding and navigation skills and pure fun! Many teams choose their route based on scenic value!

    Official support!
    We are fully official with all local and state authorities including park officials, so no aggravation for riders on the trails or the roads. :) This event is AMA National and FIM International sanctioned. We're serious about what we do to provide the best experience for the participants. The HUMM is the first adventure riding event to be sanctioned by the FIM under its Touring and Leisure Commission.
    We'll be there if you need us!
    Each team will have a Spot satellite tracker supplied for the event. If you need help, we'll come and get you. Our locally based support and recovery service can provide first aid and transport to the nearest suitable facility as well as basic field repairs and motorcycle recovery, on a 'best efforts' basis.
    What's included in the registration fee?
    • 1st, 2nd and 3rd place teams in each class get a keeper trophy for each Team Member! How cool is that!
    • Support services - If you need help, we'll come and get you.
    • Awards Dinner on the final evening is included in your registration fee.
    • An exclusive, sweat-wicking HUMM technical t-shirt.
    • Each team gets a custom map and points book to keep, afterwards you can use it to find more points at your leisure!
    • Mucho bragging rights!

    Frequently Asked Questions
    1. Do I need an off-road bike to participate in this event?
    Bikes need not be dedicated off-road specials but need to have a vague predilection for the dirt. So GS Adventure yes, Electric Glide in Blue, no. Any Adventure or Dual Sport bike is perfect - must be street legal. Knobby tires are a plus but by no means essential.
    2. I'm not an expert rider and I'm nervous about the difficulty of the trails. Will there be trails I can ride?
    Trail difficulty depends a lot on motorcycle model/type and experience - plus personal preferences. For the HUMM, we try to make an event that is fun and yet challenging for all levels of rider. It takes place primarily on unpaved roads and trails. We've used a 0-5 scale, in which 5 is the most challenging. There are plenty of Level 1, 2 and 3 trails available, so don't feel you need to push beyond your ability. You can even win without riding Level 4 or 5! You should always make your own best judgement as to your skill level and the difficulty of the routes you choose to ride. More details on Trail Difficulty: www.horizonsunlimited.com/events/messages/humm-faq.php
    3. I would love to come but my spouse doesn't ride. What is there for them to do?
    The Prescott valley and Northern Arizona offer an adventure for all ages. Possible activities include hiking, golfing, swimming, kayaking, and boating. Just a couple of hours drive north is one of the great wonders of the world, the Grand Canyon! If you have a little extra time you can venture to the lively ghost town of Jerome, through the red rock wonders of Sedona, and up through the largest contiguous Ponderosa pine forest in the world to Flagstaff, before traveling north to the canyon.
    4. My off-road skills are a little rusty - can you help?
    Absolutely! We're offering 1 or 2 days of pre-HUMM off-road skills training. This will be a great confidence boost and you can put your freshly honed skills into immediate practice!
