Garage Goods: What Your Workshop Needs

Let your lady have the dining room, living room, kitchen, and bedroom. You are a man, and all you need is the garage. It is there that you can blare the music you are not allowed to listen to in the house, that you can bash away your frustrations from an unfulfilled life, smoke one of your “special” cigarettes, and sneak a beer or two. Or three. Here are a few things that you can occupy your time with while in the garage, all centered around your one true love.

MATRIX CONCEPTS M31 WORX TOOL BOX AND 1.7 CLEANING SOLUTIONS

PRICE: TOOLBOX – $129.95 | CLEANING SUPPLIES – $12.95 AND UP | BOTTLE SHELF – $24.95

MATRIXRACINGPRODUCTS.COM

Eddie Cole has had a hand in numerous motocross companies through the years, with the latest being Matrix Concepts and 1.7 Cleaning Solutions. The M 31 tool box has plenty of storage for what is needed trackside, and the catalog of chemicals will leave your ride spotless. You’ll have all the supplies needed to keep your bike race-ready, but the actual know-how isn’t included.

ACERBIS UNIKO VENTED HANDGUARDS

PRICE: $39.95

ACERBIS.COM

Sure, minimalistic gloves look and feel great, but they offer virtually no protection from the elements. Avoid getting boxer’s hands by mounting a pair of handguards onto your bars, like the Unikos from Acerbis. They offer plenty of coverage from flying roost and rocks, but have plenty of venting for air to pass through.

DT1 AIR FILTERS

PRICE: $24.95

DT1FILTERS.COM

You know how you felt back in college when you took one too many drags off of that “tobacco use only” pipe? Yeah, your bike feels the same way when you go a too long between filter changes. Keep your garage stocked with a few spares from DT1 and keep your baby breathing easy.

LEATT PRO LITE CHEST PROTECTOR | SCOTT TYRANT GOGGLES

PRICE: CHEST PROTECTOR – $139.995 | GOGGLES – $89.95

LEATT-BRACE.COM | SCOTT-SPORTS.COM

Black is the new black. Always has been, always will be. That must be why the crews at Leatt-Brace and SCOTT used the hue (black is a hue, not a color) on their top of the line protection pieces. You’ll be lookin’ like RoboCop in no time.

RISK RACING STARTING GATE

PRICE: $299.95

RISKRACING.COM

Practice makes perfect. At least that’s what we tell ourselves when we “prepare” for our next “big event.” The automated starting gate by Risk Racing is of the same concept; it allows you to dial in your starts for the next time behind the line, and the handlebar mounted remote attaches to your bars and will drop the gate for those times you are alone.

MOOSE RACING TIRE CHANGING TOOLS

PRICE: CHANGING STAND – $99.95 | TIRE IRONS – $29.95 | SPOKES – $69.95 | TUBES – $16.95 AND UP

MOOSERACING.COM

No one likes changing tires. If everything goes well, it can be a few minute process that you complete all while holding your breath. If everything goes wrong, you are left with pinched tubes, gouged wheels, and busted knuckles. You can remedy the situation by having the right tools for the job, like these here.
