Merry Christmas today to those who celebrate. :)

Bikes, bubble visors, mini moto, mini bonfire, beer, art, give aways… highlights of last night. 

More, more, more photos later. Again, thank you to everyone who attended or helped make this End of the World Ride & Last Party on Earth come to fruition!

In the fall of 2010, two best friends quit their jobs and bought vintage motorcycles to embark on a 13,000 mile tour of America. 

Bringing nothing but questionable riding experience, little money, impractical food choices, a vague speedometer, gas gauges that are neither here nor there, misguided priorities, and a blurred sense of reality.

This show is freaking hilarious. Y’all best check it out. (Season 1 Video Playlist on Dailymotion)

Meet Piper Watson and John Shea! Talk about motorcycles bringing people together… this couple traveled from their hometown of Baltimore, MD a full 5,000 miles and ended up here in Portland! Their trip isn&#8217;t over, but they stopped by my work to see the shop (and me!) and we just had to go get dinner. 
More photos of Piper will soon follow. You can follow their journey on the-between.net!

A wonderful video about two older gentlemen who won’t stop riding until they’re dead.

Get on with ridin’ or get on with dyin’. One or the other, you know?

Riding in a pack&#8230; at first seems intimidating. But the sound, the energies exchanged through riders non-verbally. Priceless.

Love for motorcycles, love on motorcycles. Take away all that extra background noise, and this is soooo wonderful. Ok, it&#8217;s great anyway.
