Spring Break, Our Way. Won’t You Join Us?

Jello shots and questionable Tinder decisions are nice, but what about something a bit more off the radar? Luckily, ICON 1000 Travel Services has just the getaway you need. Grungy, dusty, and with a current of bubbling filth right under its surface, the Salton Sea is ideal for the spring breakers looking to trade palm trees for putrified fish remains. Read Why:

These Colors Don’t Run – Our Red, White and Blue Hondas

Red, white, and blue paint, that name, that widow-making 16in. front wheel, we just can’t get enough of everyone’s favorite Honda orphans. So we bought both a VF1000F, and its sister the VF500F.

Not only will we be covering the event, we, British Customs, and Raen want you to vote for the winner, and enter to win a trip to Cabo courtesy of RAEN, $1500 in British Custom parts, and $1500 in ICON 1000 apparel. You could say it’s kind of a big deal. So, before this duel starts, let’s introduce our combatants.   Northern Ohio Ducati Read More

Ninja Stance

Stock fitment doesn’t fly in the Harajuku district. We went wide and custom for our upcoming Ninja GPZ900R. Avon Cobras now embrace one-off wheels, and will be ruefully sacrificed soon. Stay Tuned, stay frosty.
