On September 28, 2014, we suited up for a very, very silly motorcycle ride through New York City. For charity. Sort of.
Choppers, check. Bespoke BMW hardtails, check. Not one but two Walt Siegl motorcycles, check and check. The Brooklyn Invitational happened last weekend in Williamsburg, and it continues to deserve the increasing hoopla it generates with a great crowd, commemorative tattoos, and wild mix of motorcycles—both inside and outside the show.
Was your bike manufactured before the 1990’s? Are you available Saturday, August 9th? Would you like to ride along a picturesque pre-planned tree-lined route 150 miles from the nearest New York City taxi cab?
EIGHTY riders. 200-plus miles. Six MSF-certified motorcycle instructors. Two dozen pool noodles. Yes, pool noodles. A 16-foot-long teeter-totter. Way too much coffee. Four watermelons. Three kinds of the meat cooking on two jumbo charcoal grills. One volunteer ambulance. No rain.
Join Aether Apparel and Union Garage on Saturday May 3rd for a full day of motorcycle riding as we escape the city and head for the hills.
We’re joining forces with Bell Powersports this weekend at Javits Convention Center to show off the best jackets, boots, gloves and helmets—including 2014 models from Bell.
Get down to 14th Street in Williamsburg this Sunday, August, 25, for the 10th annual New York City Vintage Motorcycle Show, which this year goes by the name of Bored, Stroked & Ported.
