Whitehorse Gear to Close

Mar 26, 2017 View Comments by

Whitehorse GearIn a recent email, we learned that Judy and Dan Kennedy, founders of Whitehorse Gear, are closing their Conway, NH, storefront and online business this spring.

The couple’s love of motorcycling spawned Whitehorse Press, then Whitehorse Gear. Last year, the publishing arm closed. As the Kennedys state in their letter, they’re retiring from day-to-day business “to spend more time enjoying the sort of life that drew us all together in the first place.”

RoadRUNNER has done business with Whitehorse for years and we’re sad to see this solid company go, but we wish the Kennedys the best. You can read their full email below:

It’s Been a Great Ride!

Since Judy and I founded Whitehorse in 1989, we have had the privilege of serving hundreds of thousands of motorcyclists, helping them find the best information and equipment to make their riding more comfortable and fun. We’ve had a wonderful experience, filled with friendship and adventure stretching from those early days before cell phones and the internet. And while the essentials of two-wheeled travel have really changed very little over the years, enthusiasm for things like dual-sport riding, metric cruisers, and even heated gear has woven its way into the motorcycling mainstream—and we’ve greatly enjoyed being a part of it all.

It is with mixed feelings then that we have reached a decision to close our warehouse store in Conway later this spring and retire from day-to-day business to spend more time enjoying the sort of life that drew us all together in the first place.

So what does this mean for you? For the next couple of months we’ll be offering some outstanding values on our remaining inventory, just in time for you to get well geared up for the riding season ahead. As always, we intend to give you the same great customer service of which we have long been proud. And while the best deals will be found early among our discontinued merchandise, we are willing to special order any items we can for you. Unredeemed gift certificates will, of course, be honored in whatever manner best suits your needs. Give us a call.

Keep an eye out for upcoming marketing emails giving you a first crack at the savings. If you happen to be in the area, stop by and give us a chance to help you find what you’re looking for, and let us thank you personally for the many years we’ve shared the road.

Dan and Judy Kennedy, Owners
