ADV News17 Don’t Miss Memorial Day Sales For Adventure Riders

17 Don’t Miss Memorial Day Sales For Adventure Riders

Save some coin on many of your favorite ADV products this Memorial Day.

Published on 05.22.2020
With Memorial day weekend upon us, some adventure riders are putting aside Covid-jitters to embark on their first safety-first getaway of spring, while others are more comfortable staying home and laying plans for later. Either way, it’s a great time to partake in these Memorial Day deals from some of the world’s best motorcycle and outdoor gear purveyors.  


From now until the end of May REV’IT! is “giving the gift of safety.” That is, it’s including free of charge its Seesoft CE Level 2 back protector with any sale of a riding jacket. The Seesoft protector, which fits into an existing pocket on many REV’IT! jackets, utilizes layers of highly impact-resistant nitrile and polynorbornene rubber designed to shift for the highest level of impact protection, yet it’s soft to the touch and flexible like memory foam. We’ve ridden with this protector and it’s super comfortable and breathable too. Just order a jacket before the end of May, enter the promo code during checkout (ADVBACK on Revzilla), and it will be automatically included.


Purveyor of a mind-boggling amount of moto merch, Revzilla is celebrating Memorial Day with plenty of deals like these two sales: SIDI up to 20% off brand-wide, and FirstGear at 15% off the entire line. There is also free-shipping store-wide for purchases over $39.99. So if you’ve been waiting to trade your old kicks for Sidi’s 2020 Adventure 2s, X-3 Enduro or Crossfire 2s, now’s the time (all 10% off). As for Firstgear, there’s a world of good choices in this line, like the Kathmandu jacket (save $55.49) for the coming warm season. The adjustability of the jacket allows for a personalized fit, while multiple large vents help to keep you cool and D30 throughout armor protects. The matching pants (save $47.99) are sized to be worn over your clothes and come with a removable bib system, because, yeah, Covid-body. There are also some nice savings for the Leatt GPX 5.5 Enduro Jacket and Pants at 20% off each.

Wolfman Luggage

Wolfman is celebrating Memorial Day with a Friday-Monday 15% off its entire site sale. That’s right, choose anything from the line of well-proven tank bags, tail bags, saddle bags, enduro bags, expedition bags, Rolie bags and more. All accessories are included in the deal as well. Wolfman luggage is made for adventure riding, with the totally waterproof Rocky Mountain Expedition Saddle Bags setup being our top pick. These 66-liter bags mount to a variety of racks, and when matched with a Wolfman Expedition Duffle, you’re ready to travel the world. Offer good for the entire order (not just one item) using code: GoWolfman (case sensitive).



Klim has a few deals going on in honor of Memorial Day 2020, including staples like the popular Krew Pak now $143 (from $179), their largest capacity backpack for whatever backcountry adventure you’re headed for. There are a couple bargains to be had on off-road goggles from Viper for as low as $29 (from $49), that would match up well with Klim’s brand new F5 Helmet if you’re into a full-time dirt lid with goggles mode. Other offerings on the Memorial Day page include a women’s Avalon mesh jacket, the Drift gear bag and a limited supply of the Arsenal Vest on sale now for $113 (from $189) , a take-it-all garment popular with the concealed carry crowd. All of Klims offerings for the holiday sale can be found here

Twisted Throttle

There are a lot of holiday sales scattered over the vast landscape of Twisted Throttle’s website, but the one we’re really excited about is the offering of 20% off everything from GIVI. So yeah, crash guards, windshields, panniers and top cases, so many possibilities. You don’t need a special code, just search the plethora of GIVI products on the website and you’ll see that all the prices have been adjusted. And no need to rush because this sale won’t end until 7/31. And if you haven’t already, make sure you register for Twisted Points in order to accrue 5% cash back toward your next purchase. 

Giant Loop

Giant Loop is going big for Memorial day with so many deals it’s tough to choose one. MotoTrekk Panniers, Round The World Panniers and GL Pannier Mounts Combos are 20% off. If you’re going for Siskiyou Panniers you’ll receive a free Tillamook Dry Bag ($130 value). Memorial weekend shoppers can also enjoy 20% off the Fandango Tank Bag + Pannier Pockets combo and Diablo Tank Bag + Pannier Pockets combo. The best deal might be getting a free Giant Loop Tail Rack with purchase of Great Basin, Coyote or Mojavi saddlebags.

Mosko Moto

Mosko Moto just announced it is taking 20% off its popular Basilisk jacket and pants. That’s a savings of $120 on the jacket and $100 on pants, which are sold separately. This is a true off-road ready kit constructed of abrasion-resistant eVent Expedition 3-layer fabric (eVent competes head-to-head with Gore-tex), so it’s both breathable and waterproof. The jacket is named after its versatile stand-alone Basilisk armor system, which can be removed and packed small when appropriate. Visually, what we find most striking about this ensemble, is its clean, minimalist lines.


Sena is offering a cool trade-in rebate of up to $150 when owners of 30K, 20S, and 20S EVO units upgrade to the new 50R or 50S. The Sena 50R was proven for adventure riding during the GS Trophy in New Zealand earlier this year where competitors showered it with positive reviews relating to its ease-of-use, sound clarity and ability to mesh in varying conditions. So how does this trade-up rebate work? Purchase the new unit from Sena, submit a Trade-up Request Form, then pack and ship your 30K, 20S, and 20S EVO using the provided prepaid return label. Offer good through June.


Still waiting to buy a tire changer that will save you money, time and busted knuckles? Well, Memorial Day weekend is a good time to shop with Rabaconda, which will include a free tire changer shop mat as a free gift with the purchase of its ADV Tire Changer Kit, on sale now for $499 (from $587). We’ve reviewed this kit and found it top notch. It includes the 3-minute tire changer unit, PRO tire iron set, 2 x 16-inch tire spoon, 12-18mm spindle, 28mm adapter and a 58mm adaptor for BMW GS shaft drive type wheels. The branded mat is a $35 value, and when combined with the $88 you’ll save on the kit, it makes for a very satisfying purchase. Be sure to add both the ADV Tire Changer Kit and Shop Mat to your shopping cart first, then apply the coupon code ADVFREEMAT at checkout to get this offer. The offer is good from Friday May 22nd to Tuesday May 26th.


Navigating Garmin products on non-dedicated online retail sites can be confusing, so let’s go straight to the spring. During the Memorial Day holiday select InReach devices are $100 off, including the inReach Explorer+, a reliable satellite communicator with maps and sensors (now $349.99). The affordable inReach Mini satellite communicator is $50 off during this sale (now $299).  No deals on subscriptions at the moment, but plans remain extremely flexible.


Old school ADV brand Tourmaster is going big right now with its “Get Out and Ride!” sale, which has more to do with encouragement and dealer support during this difficult time than it does about Memorial Day. And what a generous sale it is: 20% off all current Tourmaster products, while all non-current merch is being closed out at 30-80% off. While there are few new styles to choose from we would take this opportunity to snatch up a vented summer jacket like the Sonora Air 2.0 Mesh on sale for $187.00 (also available for women). Or maybe bank some of the heavily-discounted heated gear so we’re all set for fall. Definitely worth checking out before the sale ends on 5/31.


Despite all of its retail stores being closed due to Covid-concerns, REI is going on with it’s annual “Our Biggest Sale of the Year.” Thousands of items are on sale, and members also get a one-time 20% off one full-priced item and another 20% off one item from the REI Garage online (returned and discontinued gear) using code ANNV20 through May 25. The way it’s working this year is via online delivery and also curbside pickup with zero contact, which we’ve found works pretty painlessly at two stores we’ve used, and it certainly saves time vs. shipping delays. And while it’s impossible to pick favorites with such vast offerings, one item that caught our eye was the Spot Gen3 GPS Messenger for 33% off. We also liked the Spot Trace (49% off) which discretely attaches to you bike so you can trace it from your Spot account if some nitwit jacks decides to jack it. And for those of you getting prepared for the moto camping season, you can save 25% on a Jetboil Flash stove and Helinox Zero Chair or save 30% on a MSR Hubba Tour 1 Tent.


Get 25% off MSR “best sellers” through May 25 means you get a deal on all the outdoor retails most popular products. And yes, there are several lightweight, easy-to-pack tents to choose from and also the best of their compact cooking tools, the most famous of which is the Windburner Personal Stove System (now $112.46), a modular kit that packs small and weighs less than a pound. Best of all it’s windproof and boils a liter of water in 4.5 minutes. If you’re really pressed for space we’ve used MSR’s tiny PocketRocket Deluxe with good results (for only $52.46 on sale). While you can’t purchase directly from the MSR website, it will connect you with items in-stock at your local store.


You might know BioLite for its incredibly lightweight, rechargeable headlamps, so perfect to tuck into a tank bag or camping kit. Well these are 25% off during the company’s sale over Memorial Day weekend, as well as all the other cool gadgets you’ll find on its website. The neatest thing we discovered is the very packable SolarPanel 5+ 5w Solar Panel & On-Board Battery (now $67.46) that weighs less than a pound and slips easily into a backpack or saddlebag. Its brother the 10+ 10w is almost 2 pounds in weight but the same dimensions because it basically is two 5+ panels that fold together (now $104.96). Either will charge your phone, tablet, lanterns or yes, BioLite headlamp while you’re adventuring off-grid.


While Arc’teryx gear is famously pricey, it’s also famously well-made, so this weekend is a good time to invest, when free shipping is being offered and the whole line is 25% off using code MAY25. While it became famous for its weatherproof shells, we find Arc’teryx base layers and mid layers great to wear under adventure riding gear. They fit tidily, are super breathable and hold up to hard use. This sale makes it a perfect  time to invest in a Coreloft mid layer like the Atom AR Jacket (now $209.25) that’s ideal for chilly rides and one of the few Arc’teryx mid layers without a cumbersome hood. A women’s Atom is going for $171 this weekend.


After 3-plus decades Aerostich is still churring out rugged “riderwear” at its Duluth, Minnesota, factory. It is the only motorcycle apparel manufacturer left in the country that is truly a small business, handcrafting its suits in the U.S.A. And when you think about it, the RoadCrafter was the very first adventure riding suit to come to market, way before its time. Very anti-gimmick, an Aerostich suit is always comfortable, protective and will last many, many years. That said, this very American company is offering free shipping on its suits through May 25th. We also spied some off-the-rack Darien jackets,  men’s RoadCrafters and women’s RoadCrafters from 15% to 30% off

Moto Machines

With 15% off storewide, it’s a perfect time for some retail therapy with Moto Machines. At your fingertips is a massive supply of in-stock parts and accessories to fit over 700 motorcycles, making this a one-stop shop when you’re customizing your adventure bike. You can browse by your bike model, or by brand, saving on everything from Hepco & Becker crash bars, panniers and skid plates to Ermax windscreens, Amphibious waterproof soft bags, and Scorpion Exhaust systems. Whether you own a KTM, a Zero or a Royal Enfield you can feel great about supporting this family-owned, Virginia-based business – founded by a father and son – on this great American holiday. No coupon code required. All prices are automatically marked down 15%. Free shipping on orders over $149. Sale ends at midnight Monday May 25th.
