Description

Motorcycle clothing and accessories from the best brands in biking Choose your country and discover how HG can help you FEEL THE RIDE. Maybe it’s a bit pretentious for a retailer of motorcycle clothing and accessories to lay claim to a philosophy. But if philosophy is defined as, “the rational investigation of the truths and principals of reality, knowledge and values”, then we definitely have one. It’s just that our truths and principals revolve solely around biking.

Everybody at Hein Gericke – from shop floor to boardroom – philosophises on a daily basis, applying knowledge, experience and passion to bring motorcyclists the most complete shopping experience possible. This applies to the people that make up our team, the stores we run, the clothing we make, the brands we trust and the services we offer.
We know that your first love will always be your bike, and we can’t compete with that.
We don’t want to.


Company description
The real story is that we make sure we do everything we can for bikers today. But we’re still proud of our heritage. And because Hein Gericke happens to have more pedigree than a dog show, we thought you might be interested to read a brief outline of Our Story:
1970
Giacomo Agostini wins his seventh and eighth GP world championships and Britain’s Rodney Gould lifts the 250cc crown. It is a good year for German bikers too, with Dieter Braun racing to victory in the 125GP class and another, named Hein Gericke, beginning his very own quest to be the best when he opens his first motorcycle dealership in the city of Düsseldorf.

Before long riders from all over Germany begin making regular pilgrimages to Hein’s showroom. The next few years see his policy of offering great brands, fair prices and excellent service help Hein Gericke become the largest motorcycle dealership in the country.
1973
Britain, Germany and the Netherlands celebrate as Phil Read beats Agostini to become 500GP World Champion, Dieter Braun adds the 250GP winner’s trophy to his collection, and Jan de Vries triumphs in the sidecar class. Meanwhile, Hein Gericke expands the selection clothing and accessories available in his motorcycle showrooms.
1975
Agostini wins his 15th straight world championship in the year that Hein Gericke first introduces his own label protective motorcycle clothing.
1978
As Kenny Roberts ends Barry Sheene’s championship winning streak to become the dominant force in 500GP, Hein makes his company the first to offer a mail order service specifically for bikers.
1980
It’s another good year for German bikers. Anton Mang claims the 250GP crown, and the very first Hein Gericke catalogue is launched, split into two volumes – one for clothing and one for technical parts. 100, 000 copies are immediately snapped up and a piece of biking history is made.
