I was out tooling around on the DRZ this morning, just trying to avoid dangerously distracted holiday-shopper-drivers, when I ended up on Grant Ave, west of I-10 in Tucson.
There's nothing especially interesting in that stretch. Until now. I stopped when I saw 4 bikes parked in a strip mall. The sign above the business said: ON ANY MOTO
It turns out, it's the business I've been waiting for. They've been open for a couple of months.
It's a place you can go get an oil change, get tires mounted, buy parts and accessories at about 10% off msrp. Their price on the Michelin Power Pilot that I needed was the same as the bikebandit.com (total price, incl s&h) AFTER my AMA discount. So, very competitive prices on tires.
Most of the gear I noticed was road-riding-oriented. It was an impressive and Scott, the guy I talked to was definitely knowledgeable about it. Shoei and Arai helmets and a few other brands. I also saw some boots I want to go back and try on. Great brands including AlpineStar. Lots of jackets, ventilated, all-weather, etc.
I think it's four guys and one of their wives running it. Friendly guys. They're also proud of the selection of women's gear that they have in stock.
Lounge area with big screen TV, Speed TV nights, DVDs, magazines. It's great place to hang out and talk about riding, meet other riders, find out what's going on. SuperCross starts Jan 3rd, and they seemed up for having some SpeedTV nights for that.
Check it out the next time you need to buy some gear or for basic servicing. (Maybe other stuff, but we just talked about oil changes and tire mounting this morning.)
Also, it's a great location for a group ride starting point. Oh yeah, and the four street bikes were three Ducatis and Suzuki. There might not be a lot on the floor for pure dirt riders, but I think the name says it all, if you're ON ANY MOTO, come on in.
