SR! Monthly Motorcycle Marketplace

Welcome to the Sound RIDER! virtual Motorcycle Marketplace. We understand that our readers want to know about specials and events that are currently under way at Northwest shops, as well as national motor sports entities in general, and the Marketplace does just that. Check out what's going on this month.


Cycle Barn Smokey Point

One of the largest motorsports dealers in the Puget Sound, Cycle Barn Smokey Point, in Marysville Washington, is your one stop shop for the latest in motorcycles, gear and award winning service. With a show room that clocks in at an enormous 30,000 square feet and featuring legendary brands like, Honda, Yamaha, Kawasaki, Suzuki and KTM, if you’re in the market for a new or used motorcycle, Cycle Barn has got you covered. Already own a motorcycle or ATV? Then be sure to stop by for one of the area’s largest selection of parts, accessories and technical apparel. Just 30 miles north of Seattle, you can visit them Tuesday thru Saturday, or visit www.smokeypointcyclebarn.com for more information.


No Thru Road

Let’s face it, we who buy motorcycles do not do so for strictly practical purposes. In every motorcyclist is an innate desire for adventure and the open road, which few riders are lucky enough to push to its logical conclusion. Clement Salvadori is one such rider. A “moto-journalist” almost out of necessity, in “No Thru Road”, Clement details an incredible, globetrotting, life that spans more than 40 years and literally dozens of countries. From “Afghanistan 1973” to “Zimbabwe 1974” every chapter of “No Thru Road” is an entertaining and adventure filled account that speaks to the soul of every motorcyclist. Available on Amazon now.


Street Rider’s Guide

The latest book from famed motorcycle expert and Sound RIDER! contributor David Hough, "Street Rider's Guide" is the definitive collection of everyday riding advice that no rider should be without. Drawing on half a century and over 1 million miles of personal experience, the author effortlessly instructs on how to handle road hazards, fellow motorists and dozens of other real world scenarios that eventually, all motorcyclists will encounter. Valuable for its sections on riding in inclement weather alone, "Street Rider's Guide" is a must for any rider. Available through the Sound RIDER! store now.


Ride West BMW

While fall is almost here, Ride West still has some great group rides scheduled for the month of September. We have a very easy dual sport ride scheduled for Saturday, September 13th and a great ride around Rainier for the 20th. Want to improve your riding skills? We’ll be joining 2Fast at the Ridge for a track day. It’s a great way to improve your riding skills in a controlled environment. Use code RideWest for $40 off your track day or school. What makes Ride West different? We’re Washington’s only exclusive BMW motorcycle dealer. We have a fleet of BMW demo motorcycles and sell used motorcycles of all brands. Ask for the details of any or all of these programs and join Ride West staff and customers on the road, on the track, or in the dirt!

Consistently rated one of the top BMW dealers in the USA –stop by the shop to see why.

As a MotoStays member, you'll have access to hundreds of friendly people willing to host you and your motorcycle, for free! Meet interesting people, save money and ride farther!

Happy Trails

Outfitting your bike with the proper luggage, is likely one of the first steps you'll take as you prepare for that "big trip". Happy Trails offers a full line of hard bodied, aluminum panniers and mounting equipment so you can turn your bike into the ultimate adventure machine. Rugged durability combined with a functional, yet stylish design, make for an eye pleasing aesthetic. While the added peace of mind of a fully locking luggage system means that you can load up and ride for days….or weeks!

Moto Corsa

Offering full sales and service, Portland's hottest Ducati dealer is Moto Corsa. You know you want one of those sweet machines, but where to begin? Moto Corsa's expert staff can help you sort through the options, give you the "ins and outs" on all the models and get you set up on your next bike. Not ready to take the plunge on a new bike?

Made with reinforced ballistic nylon and engineered to fit virtually any motorcycle that can handle a second passenger, Giant Loop's 100% water proof construction and slim profile keeps your gear dry with virtually no negative effect on bike performance.
