First ran in to these guys when I was looking for some m/c protective wear that I would actually wear. Cool content, amazing quality riding gear, customer support is truly from a bygone era. Rock on guys. Keep it going!
Love these guys and their guests.
Quality, just like my California Riding Shirt
Started riding a couple years ago (after wanting to do it forever) and stumbled across Tobacco when I was looking for some protective gear. Started listening to this podcast during quarantine and stoked that BLDR delivers on the vibe I catch from your brand. As an entrepreneur maker myself, I appreciate the business and brand insights infused within the moto culture your so steeped within. Keep it up, guys. We’re listening.
