Independent dealership Moto Liberty has become the exclusive U.S. distributor of high-end RS Taichi riding gear.
Established in 1985, Moto Liberty is the largest stocking dealer of RS Taichi products and a retailer of other premium men's and women's apparel and accessories. The retailer is based out of a 4,500 sq. ft. Dallas retail store, with a franchise location in San Antonio. Its complete inventory of in-stock products can also be bought at MotoLiberty.com.
According to the fledgling distributor, Taichi Yoshimura founded RS Taichi in Japan in 1976. Working with professional riders for more than 30 years, Yoshimura created an extensive line of riding gear for track days, racing, sportbiking, cruising and touring.

Audrey Menarik, owner of Moto Liberty, is RS Taichi's director of dealer development in the U.S. "I love RS Taichi, its innovative designs and business philosophy,” she states. “The company is full of craftsmen and engineers — leaders, not followers. Their decades of experience, commitment to using only the finest materials and efficient sewing techniques are unsurpassed."
Moto Liberty is building a retail network of motorcycle dealerships and accessory shops, including a “very limited” number of Internet-based retailers. "Brick-and-mortar stores are the life blood of the motorcycle business," Menarik says. “They're the ones organizing rides, doing charity events, hosting open houses and bike nights. We want to build lasting partnerships with these pillars of the motorcycle community. We're all about supporting dealers that search for quality products, provide customers with a personal shopping experience, give back to the community and stand out from every other shop in town."
