Well it’s that time of year again, the time where we all scramble through the crowds to try and find that perfect gift for the loved ones in our life. I can remember a time when there was no internet at all, and going to the mall to fight the crowds was more of a tradition than anything else. I can remember getting a group of guys together and going to the local mall to make fun of each other while we tried to accomplish some shopping. It was usually a really good time. You would see plenty of people there who you normally would not run into throughout the … Continue Reading

This Saturday, December 15 both J&P Cycles retail locations will be spreading Holiday cheer in the form of:
- SAVINGS!!! Take up to 10% off most items J&P Cycles offers (some exclusions apply). Gold Club members, take up to 15% off. Holy Savings Batman!!! You can’t pass that up. You can ask any J&P Cycles associate how to take advantage of Gold Club memberships.
- REFRESHMENTS!!!! Cookies, hot chocolate and coffee will be available to sweeten up your shopping experience.
- THE BIG GUY HIMSELF!!! That’s right; Santa
It’s that time of year again where we all gather with our family and friends for the holidays. Whether you celebrate Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Christmas or even Festivus (for the rest of us)-it isn’t a matter of being faithful to your beliefs, but rather it’s the time to reflect on what we are thankful for in our lives and these holidays are intended just for that.
I know some of you might bash this, and you have every right to say that, but I feel Christmas has become a commercialized corporate holiday. I personally don’t care about gifts or rushing to a store at 3 a.m. on a Black Friday to … Continue Reading

Despite a gloomy rainy Eastern Iowa Day, J&P Cycles and the Marines made the most of the first annual J&P Cycles Toys for Tots Run held Saturday, Oct. 13 at J&P Cycles. We collected hundreds of toys for less fortunate Iowa children, in addition to hundreds of dollars in cash donations.
The band New Trick was a hit as were the Marines in attendance as they posed for photos and collected toys. If you didn’t have an opportunity to come out to the Iowa showroom this weekend to donate a new, unwrapped toy, you still have a chance to do so. Donation boxes are set up in both the Iowa … Continue Reading

Patrick Garvin, one of our more prolific bloggers and motorcycle tech experts grabbed a microphone and wandered around what he calls the “belly of the beast” here at J&P Cycles, asking a sampling of employees for their New Year’s resolutions.
Were this a bank or financial institution, you would expect those resolutions to center around balancing a checkbook or putting more into savings. But J&P Cycles sells motorcycle parts — about 130,000 of them at last count — and our employees seem to have a common theme when it comes to resolutions.
And that theme is this: Fix the bike that’s in the garage. For example, senior technician and J&P Cycles … Continue Reading
So far this winter, we’ve still got tree leaves covering the Iowa highways instead of snow. Nevertheless, the opportunity to spend time on two wheels is rapidly drawing to a close and our thoughts turn instead to winter projects and the hustle and bustle of the holiday season.
Here at J&P Cycles, we’re constantly inundated with hot deals and promotions, all centered around the after-holiday sales. So what I wanted to do was just take a deep breath and pause to reflect for a moment on what this season is really all about.
And of course, it’s about being thankful — just like we were taught way back in elementary … Continue Reading

On the 11th day, of the 11th month of the year 2011 we celebrate an event that occurred on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918. This was the time the armistice between Germany and the Allied nations went into effect, thus ending the war to end all wars. It was called the “Great War” because nobody could fathom a fiercer conflict.
On Nov. 11 the following year, Armistice Day was commemorated for the first time. In 1919, President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed the day should be “filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country’s service and … Continue Reading
