MOTO-GEAR Celebrates Their One Year Anniversary

Written by  October 31, 2005

What do women, motorcycles and luxury retail have in common? MOTO-GEAR!

One year ago, on October 13, 2004 MOTO-GEAR opened it’s door’s in Kansas City, Missouri to offer men, women, children and pets the most unique and cutting edge motorcycle apparel, gifts, artwork and custom motorcycle parts that the industry has to offer in a luxury retail setting complete with Starbucks coffee and bottled water. Don’t forget to take time out and see if you can find the owner’s pet’s painted in the mural on the back wall. Give the kids something to do while you shop.

The Founder-President, Beverly Harvey, came up with the idea after shopping for motorcycle products in Kansas City and finding few sources for unique items.

“After a trip to Daytona Bike Week and to Sturgis I realized there were so many different products on the market that were not available locally in one shop such as unique helmets, jackets, artwork, gifts, custom bike parts and so on. I felt that size and variety of motorcycle apparel were limited, especially for women, and in an industry where the largest growing segment of new motorcycle riders are women I felt there was a big gap in the local marketplace. I wanted to bring together in one location all the unique, fun, edgy, main-stay products the motorcycle industry has to offer and make it a comfortable and fun environment in which to shop. The response has been overwhelming. Many of our customers love the store and ask if we are a franchise or a chain.” said Beverly

Beverly also went on to say, “We will do whatever it takes to bring to the public the really cool, edgy, cutting-edge, fun stuff the motorcycle market has to offer, such as dog helmets, dog goggles and t-shirts, metal-spiked bra’s for women, helmet hair, novelty and airbrushed helmets, fake tattoo’s, high-end art work such as Blue Dog art by George Rodrigue, one of a kind painted skull cookie jars and the main stay products such as helmets, boots jackets and much, much more.”

“If it is motorcycle cool you will find it here…at MOTO-GEAR”
