Cool Fox Racing

So I'm looking at motorcycle gear at motorcycle-usa superstore and I go to the casual clothing portion of the site and I see Fox Racing crap everywhere. Ball caps (not the curved bill kind, the flat-billed 'stick-on-your-head-sideways kind), beanies, visors, tee-shirts, cargo shorts, and of course, the necessary flip-flops.

I'm new to motorcycling, and my superhawk is my first bike; but I've never even seen any real Fox Racing motorcycle gear. Unless they just sell to the squidly tee-shirt, cargo shorts, and flip-flops crowd. -Try myrtle beach- Anyways maybe this should have gone in the rant forum. I have enough trouble getting my friends to wait for me to put on my jacket, gloves, and helmet.

Fox's street company is called Shift. It is made by Fox...but for the street. I do have to say though...Fox has become more than motocross gear. I now see people on the street with Fox **** on who have no idea what a motorcycle is.
Very few people know about Shift though. I have a jacket of theirs and love it. They have some damn cool designs and are really different.

Fox did make street gear years ago. I had a pair of road race gloves back in the day(85').
Then Fox decided to make a lower price point MX gear company called SHIFT(late 90's).
In recent years Shift has made street gear too.

Fox has gone mainstream like Alpinestars with more casual "designer" stuff. It's nice cause I can go to the mall and get stuff on the rare occasions I go there, but it pisses me off when I see girlymen wearing the name who would never even get a little dirty much less ride a 2 wheeled death trap. Occassionally I ask people wearing motorcycle oriented stuff (usually Fox) what they ride and most of them reply "Nahh, I don't ride, I just like their stuff, but my friend's brother had a minibike when we were kids". Posers...I wouldn't dare be caught wearing something that represents a sport I never participated in.
