On the last Sunday in September we staged a “Great Big Glamping Ride” north of the city, in the mountainous and reservoir-lined roads of the Catskills. The outing consisted of a semi-guided, fully catered, all-day (or for some, overnight) motorcycle junket for the first 50 people who signed up. The weekend was a hoot—a ride with a silly name for a serious and worthy charity. Here’s how it went down.
We’re excited to welcome The Rokker Company as the next tenant of the 103 Union Street Pop-Up Shop, where we’ll be featuring the company’s full catalog of riding jackets, jeans and boots. It all kicks off this Saturday (10/7) at noon, when we take the paper off the storefront windows and light off the charcoal grills.
We’re offering a semi-guided, fully catered, all-day (or overnight) motorcycle outing for anyone who’s looking to get out for a “Great Big (Glamping) Ride” the weekend of September 23-24.
Last fall after the 2016 Brooklyn Invitational we sat down with show co-founer Keino Sasaki and talked to him broadly about the Invitational’s reason for being, and specifically about the 2016 invitees, and how he and his partners John Copeland and Jessica Wertz decide how to curate the field every year. And even though the show doesn’t officially crown a winner, we got Keino to name his favorite.
This Saturday, August 19, organizers Girard Fox and Tim Warner will open the gates to “The Lot” in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, for a refreshingly simple sort of motorcycle show. This free event runs from 2pm through midnight and will feature food trucks, live bands, local beer, and a sprawling array of pre-1983 bikes inside the fence—including, perhaps, yours?
We put on a one-day Italian Sporting Bike show in collaboration with Alpinestars and Moto Borgotaro. And now we’ve launched comprehensive (and interactive) show coverage chronicling the event.
If a world-class, Guggenheim-grade motorcycle museum installation isn’t enough, we’ll also be kicking off a special week-long Alpinestars popup shop right next to Union Garage.
According to the latest industry statistics, female riders account for about 13% of motorcyclists in the U.S. (That figure goes up to 25% if you factor in those riding as passengers too). We’re all about growing those numbers in any way we can, and are dedicating this weekend to riders of the fairer sex—through a store-wide sale, an inspirational Ride Report presentation in-store Saturday Night, and a Sunday morning ride out (guys are welcome too, but only as a plus-one).
Join us this Saturday, April 22, 2017 for a live presentation by our friends Matias Corea and Joel Estopà, who are fresh back in New York after just completing an epic six-month journey from Brooklyn, NY, to the end of the Earth—Ushuaia, Argentina.
Now in its eighth year the motorcycle exhibition extravaganza known as The One Moto Show has developed its own distinct brand of whiphlash—in the best kind of way.
