December 29, 2009 | By: Patrick Garvin

Rivera Primo LED HID HeadlightOnce again it’s time for Two for Tuesday, a regular feature here on the blog where we introduce two more can’t-miss products. This week we’re pleased to highlight (pun intended) products from aftermarket industry juggernaut Rivera Primo.

In the world of motorcycle lighting, it doesn’t get much better than the Rivera Primo RFB HID (High Intensity Discharge) light (J&P Part # 310-578). For the uninitiated, HID lighting is a type of lamp which produces light by passing a…. okay, I was going to go into a long explanation of HID lighting but long story short, it’s as bright as the sun bouncing off a chrome gas tank (if Continue Reading

Happy Holidays from the Parhams

December 25, 2009 | By: John Parham

Happy Holidays from the Parhams

The last few months have slowly brought colder weather to Iowa. As we look outside, a powdery snow from a winter storm covers our landscape. Those of us in the Midwest have put our bikes away for the winter anticipating a time when warmer weather will welcome us back outdoors. While never enjoyable, the yearly ritual of turning off the engine and winterizing our bikes marks the end of another year. This gives us a time to pause and reflect on the season and another year gone by.

As the Christmas season is upon us we understand the challenges and uncertainty that 2009 brought to many. In this season we’re often reminded … Continue Reading

If you believe some of what you hear and see on television and in the movies, motorcyclists are renegade loners. To our customers — those of you who ride and live the motorcycle lifestyle — however, we know nothing could be further from the truth… motorcyclists are very social people, which is why online motorcycle-focused message boards and forums, as well as your collective use of social networking sites and platforms like Facebook and Twitter, have skyrocketed in recent years.

Facebook, which used to be for college kids only, is a fresh and dynamic way to connect with people who share similar interests.  Currently, we use Facebook to:

Find J&P Deals on Twitter

December 18, 2009 | By: Tim Barcz

The Internet is a wonderful place. Consider that only a few short years ago, if you wanted to buy quality motorcycle parts and accessories, you basically had one of two options: You could pick up your favorite motorcycle parts catalog, or you stop in to your local dealer and browsed the selection on-hand.

The Internet has changed the game entirely. From the computer in your very own living room or office, you can research new motorcycle parts or hunt for hard-to-find vintage Harley replacement parts for that knucklehead you’re rebuilding.

Unfortunately, with the ease of the Internet comes a flood of content. Who do you trust? Where do … Continue Reading
