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.
Recently we used this space to explain why we’re skipping this year’s Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride, and we blew it. The tone of the previous post was not constructive and needlessly snarky. Not long after posting we got plenty of feedback. Some was supportive, much was not. We listened. And we now admit: we f*cked up. Here’s how.
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.
With so many great custom motorcycle shows happening around the country, spawning a builder-culture that is fast chopping and bobbing these old bikes out of existence, the spirit of the original designs sometimes get lost.
