What do you want to see from Iron Heart Racing?

...Iron Heart USA will launch a new range of clothing aimed at the new younger, sportier breed of Harley riders.  This brand will be called Iron Heart Racing


So, the first samples are with me in PDX. What do you want to see from this new line?

No,


1) Iron Heart USA will launch a range of clothing with Ken for Ken to sell through his outlets in The USA.  This brand will be called Iron Heart Ignition
2) Iron Heart USA will launch a new range of clothing aimed at the new younger, sportier breed of Harley riders.  This brand will be called Iron Heart Racing

I'm curious what we'll see clothing-wise when compared to IHUK. Will it be a full range of stuff like shirts, jackets and denim? Or will you be focusing on specific garments?

Being a very old Harley rider,and definitely not “sporty” I’m not sure what the goal of the line is? Will it just be cool clothes to wear while you’re riding,or will it actually be protective to some degree. Younger riders may not necessarily embrace the “You dress for the crash” philosophy, but in some ways that has helped me become an old Harley rider. Also,I ride a lot,and I’ve never encountered this young,sporty Harley rider you speak of. The young kids I see are on sport bikes,such as Yamahas,Hondas,and Kawasakis.

Variations on the classic IH riders jacket with more technical specs and modern materials would be interesting.

Generally I like the idea of some kit with IH standards of construction that departs a little from the work wear/military starting point.

Maybe it’s a cultural thing down here, but all my friends that ride have Harley’s.  Maybe it’s because that what their dad rode, so they do the same, but most of my buddy’s ride either sportsters or softtails.

I see a good bit of people riding “street bikes,” but that is a bit of a different breed of rider in our area. Usually REALLY young (like 18-25) and probably not much disposable income; ie. Probably not IHUSA demo.

Harley riders are also more in tune with the bike culture, or at least it seems that way to me, an outsider.

Just my 2 cents.

I will have to ask some of my younger, sportier co-workers what they are interested in. We have all kinds in my company.

I also do volunteer work at the big Motorcycle Show in NYC,and from what I saw, it was ,once again, an older crowd,for the most part, hanging around the Harley exhibit. The Ducati exhibit got a lot of young people.

Unmmm.... did I see a picture of a type III-ish jacket but with snaps and a zipper somewhere, or did I dream it? It could be the latter as I’m in a small child induced, sleep deprived, zombie fog...

I believe it’s this vest (from the IGNITION line?)
