    Sports bike gear stores in Rhode Island ?

    Hey guys, my job recently moved me to N. Smithfeild RI and I'm in the market for a new helmet, can you guys suggest any good stores around here. I know Twisted Throttle is a one but they are 50 min away from my work, and like 2 hours away from my house.

    How can anything be 2 hours from anywhere if they're both in ri?
    Precision triumph is the only other thing that comes to mind, but I'm sure there's a few other shops.

    I recommend Motorsports Nation in Plainfield, CT. There's a new place in Burrillville too that my friend uses, but I haven't been there yet, so not sure of the selection. I'll see if I can get the name from him.

    then I'd try Mass gear stores, probably more stores/better selection

    http://www.cycleking.com/ is the place in B-ville. They also have a store in Warwick. I'd call them first.

    It might as well be since he is coming from the North...

    The distance would be about equivalent for both. Therefore, by my logic, they could be considered right by each other. Especially considering they are only a town apart.

    They are actually nowhere close to each other.

    Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle
