Fox Motion Elite Shoe
There’s nothing better than slipping your feet into something comfortable after a couple motos. That’s where Fox’s Motion Elite shoes come in. This athletic-style shoe is the perfect footwear long days walking or working out in the gym. The Motion Elite is also choice in warm climates offering excellent ventilation. It shares the same material on the sole as Fox’s Instinct motocross boot which offers excellent grip on all sorts of surfaces including wet pavement and polished concrete. The shoes are easy to care for and can be washing in a front-style washing machine. Fit is accurate and true-to-size. – Adam Waheed.

Ducati Corse Men’s Sweatshirt
If you love the power, beauty and craftsmanship of Ducati’s motorcycles, you’ll love the Ducati Corse Men’s Sweatshirt. The 80% cotton, 20% polyester blend sweatshirt features a cadet collar, elastic cuffs and sports a Ducati Corse carbon fiber patch. Even if you haven’t gotten your hands on the Monster or Panigale you’ve been drooling over just yet, the Corse Sweatshirt is a great way to show off your support for the elegant Italian brand.

RSD Motor Long Sleeve Shirt  

RSD Motor Long Sleeve Shirt
RSD Motor Long Sleeve Shirt.

RSD riding gear looks good and the custom-builder fashionista’s casual threads are no exception. RSD sports a full line of T-shirts, but my favorite this past riding season has been the RSD Motor Long Sleeve Shirt. PR describes the shirt as a “waffle blend long sleeve thermal”, but the translation into my buys-his-clothes-at-Target fashion sense is it’s a cross between a T-shirt and long underwear. But this shirt looks sharp, not like some mouth-breather is walkin’ around in his long john britches. The RSD long-sleeve is form-fitting but not constrictive, and I have enjoyed wearing it as a comfy baselayer during rides. Bad news is the RSD thermals appear to be discontinued. Good news is Motorcycle Superstore has them at a markdown of $14.99 from $55. – Bart Madson
