On September 28, 2014, we suited up for a very, very silly motorcycle ride through New York City. For charity. Sort of.
Director and Drone Commander first class Roberto Serrini came by the store one cold clear day in the spring to talk about working on some new video projects for Union Garage. We shook hands, gave him the nickel tour then rode the shop bike (#VenerableR65) around the block a few times while Serrini launched his drone.
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.
The first annual Motorcycle Film Festival gets underway this week. Individual screening tickets and run-of-show VIP passes are on sale now, so get your seats locked down before it’s too late.
We made a little video about our neighborhood. Check it out.
To kick off the first season in business for Union Garage and to celebrate the five-year mark for Moto Borgotaro, we decided to throw a little get-together. We ordered a couple hundred pounds of crawfish from Louisiana, traded out all the bikes in the front of the motorcycle shop next door for a dozen picnic tables and invited all our friends and customers to come down to Union Street.
