Question Ontario Gear Shops?

Hey all,

Does anyone know of any decent (read: well stocked) gear shops in the Barrie (or even Toronto area?) I'm currently located about a half-hour drive northwest of Barrie and we have nothing here. I just need a place to try on helmets, jackets, boots, etc. Any help would be much appreciated.

hey bud, good to see some other canadians in this place. I live in just outside of toronto, there are a couple of good shops around here. There must be a few cycle worlds around your place, also in ajax JP bikes, good place with good prices.

It's the GTA Man. There's bike shops all over the place.

I'm from Kingston where there're only two, and they both suck. If I need gear I go to Ottawa, or get a buddy from London to pick it up for me.

I must agree it does suck to live in kingston, haha. My buddy is there because he's in a military school there, and that place place is litterally in the middle of nowhere.

Try the Okanagan Valley in B.C., Cdn for very few m/c shops let along riding gear stock. Close to beans all.

Remember all the others on the road are crazy & out to kill you.

there is a Royal Distributing in Barrie, they have a ton of gear there, at least the one in Guelph does, so I assume the one in Barrie does. Thats where my bf buys all his gear.

I think you misunderstood me Mike. I'll take life here in K-Town over life in the Big Smoke aka The Centre Of The Universe anytime. It most definately dosen't suck here, there is not much in the way of Motorcycle Market support is all.

McBride Cycle. Best shop in GTA for gear. They'll even ship to your house at no extra charge if they don't have what you want in stock.
