Busted and Broken - Icon Girl for Life!

Dear Icon,

 As I was coming into a left turn lane I was hit by a driver who decided he didn't want to sit in traffic any longer and changed lanes. When he hit me on my right side it spun my bike halfway around and I slammed against the side of an oncoming car with the right side of my body and bike before I went down on the right side. As you can see from the pictures the right side of the bike has broken fairings, lights and mirror. I am still trying to figure out how I dented the left side of the gas tank so bad when everything happened on the right side! As you can see from the helmet pics the damage was minimal. I have seen people go down and never seen a helmet come out so clean. I just wanted to thank you for your high quality products. I will be a Icon Girl for life!


We can almost hear "Fox on the Run" blasting from the Magic Van's 6x9's. And we like it...a lot. We know it's fabricated photo. We know smokin' hot chicks don't just randomly hang out in the desert alongside custom vans and turbo panhead chops... but we don't care. Call us suckers but we're still buying what they're selling.

Free Icon iPhone Jimmy Hats

Do you have an unprotected iPhone? Are you headed to Laguna Seca? Do you <3 Icon? If you answered yes to at least two of these questions then head on over to Cycle Parts West tent at Laguna Seca. You'll find it in the dealer area.  Look for someone in an Icon workshirt and verbally accost them until they render unto you that which is yours - an official Icon iPhone case. They're free and ultra-trendy but supplies are limited so get to the track early.

The 1" platform sole was added by the owner. Wanna know why?  Read the full review here.

We're the Dandy Highwaymen

Back when Captain Jack Sparrow was still narc'ing on highscool kids there was the original showman pirate - Adam Ant. After pillaging the English countryside, Adam went on to hawk Honda Aero's. Scooters were a new thing for the American masses back in mid 80's. And though we're not big scooter fans, the Honda scooter lineup and associated marketing push were quite impressive. And Adam Ant is still incredibly cool.

A History Carved in Dirt

There are many truths American's hold to be self evident. In Portland, one of those truth's is that most men over the age of 45 were once flat track champions. It doesn't matter if it's the local Fire Chief, the accountant, or the homeless dude under the 405 overpass. They were all once nationally ranked flat track stars. "Not possible" we can hear you say as you read this post in marked disbelief.  How can one city be so thoroughly saturated with so many noble kings of the dirt oval? We don't have an answer - we just accept the truth in our observation. And with that truth we headed home on our freshly completed Sportster tracker - only to become hopelessly mired in I-5 traffic. And to our left rolled up a FLH shovelhead with a pilot by the name of JK. He raised the sleeve of his John Cougar'esque tee shirt to reveal his hot-shoed bicep....

We were not surprised...

Icon Turns Up the Volume

See and be seen is what we always say. Have you ever been run over by Cell phone Sally who claimed she didn't see you? Been pulled out in front of because your 'visual signature' wasn't up too Billy Bifocals' legally blind standards? Or perhaps you're just a huge Wham UK fan reliving the glory days of the Jitterbug and Dolphin shorts. Whatever the reason, surely you can appreciate the genius behind the new Alliance Hi-Viz helmet. Not only is it seriously bright for daytime visibility, but the graphics themselves are reflective for vastly increased nighttime peeps. All this on our brand new Alliance shell which features a more oval headform for improved fit, new vents for more airflow, Proshield optics for undistorted viewing, Hydradry interior for increased comfort, etc, etc. 

A Good Hurricaning

Flogging the almighty CBR600F1 at various spots throughout the late 80's. Not exactly known for it's racetrack prowess, she still looked sexy as hell in the paddocks. If anybody has more Hurricane race photos drop us a line.

BTW, these photos came from If you're into 80's racebikes check them out, tons of great old school race photos.
