The Handbuilt Motorcycle Show 2014

Pandora and I were unable to make it to the Handbuilt Motorcycle Show in Austin, Texas on April 11th and 12th this year. The event is snuggled up to MotoGP and features the Wall of Death, a full bar, and works of Shinya Kimura, Walt Siegl, Revival Cycles, Boyle Custom Moto, and one of my favorite motoladies Sofi Tsingos plus a ton of other talented folks. Sofi and Brandon LaJoie of GT Moto (website) helped out with some awesome photos and words on the event.

"First, I would like to say how mind blowing the show was. Last year I was about a block away from the One Show during Moto GP and missed it by half an hour. So I asked to get off work in advance to make sure I could make it this year. I had NO idea my CB550 and I would be invited to actually be in the show! After arriving, I just stopped at the door as soon as I saw the talent that was there.

Sunday Mass Hosted by ESMB

After the shoot with Shaik Ridzwan, I finally made it to a Sunday Mass event at Deus ex Machina in Venice Beach. This time hosted by East Side Moto Babes and taking place after the big Venice Vintage swap meet (website) and VVMC ride, the parking lot was completely packed. Sunday Mass was literally massive.

Jeannette Mekdara and Ana Llorente of East Side Moto Babes at MotoMelee 2013.
MotoMelee is a particularly cool event in that it’s three days and about 850 miles of backroads adventure riding for people on pre 1971 motorcycles. Based in San Francisco and started in 1988, it’s basically an iron butt off road rally for classic motorcycles. Pretty amazing if you ask me. 
MotoMelee XVII will be taking place June 21-23rd, 2014.

The One Moto Show (video)

There were a lot of dynamic parts of the One Motorcycle Show no. 5 that I didn’t feel satisfied capturing in one frame. So this time I did something a little different and made a short video featuring highlights that really give the One show it’s uniqueness.

The One Moto Snow

Road Trip (Part 2)

Getting to the One Show (the1moto.com) this year was a bit more difficult than in the past- partially because I moved to San Diego and partially because it snowed like crazy. The first portion of my road trip was easy peasy- driving the Purple Prius Eater (my Tacoma) to San Francisco from San Diego went shockingly well. The next leg started out with rain, and ended with Pandora’s Box looking like a Ducati popsicle.

The show today was busy as ever despite crazy snow. A few dirtbikes outside in the cold.

John Ryland of Classified Moto touched Pandora despite it’s lil sign! Oh snap.

A chopper rode in with zip ties, my mom visited the show and her comment was, “wow that’s smart!”

Sweet vans and brave folks drove in from all over, it was a pretty amazing day.

Snowy as hell in Portland but the turn out for the first night of the One Show was amazing. I’m so stoked to have been able to bring Pandora even though the going was a little tough.

I do love Portland, look at those crazy folks who rode to the show in the ~5 inches of snow.
