Motowearhouse in Corona
« on: 03/18/19 09:46AM »
Visited Motowearhouse (note the spelling... wear, not ware) in Corona. www.motowearhouse.com in Corona yesterday. Not sure how many people here are familiar with the place. I stumbled on it on Craig's looking for something, and he had some jackets listed.

Randy, the guy who runs the place, is a cool dude. He has a decent amount of new gear in his showroom - helmets, boots, jackets and gloves. But, he also takes in used gear (no helmets), and once you agree on a value, you can use it toward credit for stuff in his shop. I remember Yellow Devil gear in Long Beach, which sold consignment gear, and this is similar, but rather than waiting until the stuff sells and getting a check, you can agree on a value up front, and take store credit.

I had a few jackets in my closet that I hadn't worn, and had forgotten about. Took them to Randy, and after we negotiated, I traded them and a little cash on a new helmet. He's also looking for gear donations if anyone has anything they just don't need anymore.

He's a "if I don't have it, I can get it" kind of guy. Most of the helmets in his shop are basic black, because, as he puts it, that's what sells. I like more visibility, so he ordered me a white one and says I'll have it tomorrow.

Here endeth the public service announcement!

Yeah, a couple of us on a ride to Borrego Springs ran into him at the Elsinore side of Ortega Highway in the parking lot just at the end of Ortega. This was just before he opened up the store front in Corona or maybe right at the same time I think. At that time, he had a surplus of Scorpion gear if I recall correctly but he was telling us their intentions and looks like his venture has taken a foot hold. Good to know that they do consignment and credit for stuff you want to sell.

His helmet lineup is heavy on Scorpion and LS2, but he has some Shoeis and other brands as well. The jacket mix is pretty varied, as a lot of those are consignments.
