Late Summer of 2014. Jayson Warner Smith decides to ride his 50th birthday out, fires up his Triumph Bonneville and spends five weeks riding solo across the country.
Shot almost entirely with his cell phone, the movie captures a slide of America that’s worth watching.

There’s nothing like a good team to run a good show. Our two queen bees, Jodie and Ashley rule the Renegade Tucson show.
On this photo taken last Friday, Jodie wears the ‘Ladies Boulevard’ leather jacket by Xpert. Ashley dons the ‘MonteCarlo’ by First.
XPert is one of the great brands for leathers that the Renegade Classics stores carry for the quality of the craftmanship and their reasonable prices. They manufacture a variety of leather jackets and vests, including this Ladies Boulevard model, maybe named after Hollywood Blvd – so fashionable it is. It’s the Perfecto cut but a much cleaner version of it.
First Manufacturing has been in the motorcyling apparel industry for years, designing both leather and ballistic nylon jackets. This Montecarlo model fits snugly and the thick leather is very protective. The jacket has zippers for pockets and vents, and an adjustment belt at the bottom.
Both leather jackets are fitted, so they underscore your waist very nicely without giving you bodybuilder shoulders.
Nothing like the right leathers on the right girl.
Model Ashley is posing here with an embroidered leather jacket for ladies.
This jacket fits nicely but not too tightly. It is embroidered front and back with purple thread, and comes with a textile liner and a hoodie.
A cool jacket that speaks power and will fit both cruiser and sports bike riders.
Currently in stock at Renegade Classics Tucson and other Renegade Classic stores in the nation.
When a biker brings in a picture of a design to be embroidered, we just can’t “scan it and print it”.
It needs to be digitized, which requires redrawing the design by hand in a $5,000 piece of software.
Next, then thread direction, density and underlay stitching instructions have to assigned to very element of the design.
Then often several test points are required to bet the bugs out.
Congratulations to Jodie for the design she produced for a biker friend last week!
Both Jodie and Ashley have acquired a lot of embroidery skills in the past few months. And we also have “go-to” outside design partners for really difficult designs.
If you can dream it we can make it happen. Bring in your best design!
Captain America and John Bull. Two stylish 3/4 helmets with the retro look that fits any dude on a cafe racer or a bobber.
The goggles are sold separately. They have a comfortable cushion that make you forget them on rides of any length.
Except of course of the looks you get. Stylish headturners.
The 1960s are back in style and FIRST Manufacturing gets them leathers back on the road.
This model is named the New Yorker and it has not just the cool looks but also the convenience. Check out the number of vents and pockets!
That’s an all-season pass, whether you ride on the East Coast or in LA. Bound to become a classic of the brand.
