The tale of the Bonerville sticker(s). 
My friend Joe, marketing director at Icon Motosports, returned from a vacation to find his Bonneville stealthily stickered beyond reason. He stopped counting at 18, then proceeded to find one inside the gascap. Aw, ya gotta love co-workers. The best sticker of them all was the very accurately designed “Bonerville” sticker on his side cover. 
Well the totally rad Jada, having lovingly referred to her bike as Bonerville for quite a while now, followed suit and spruced up her Bonne as well. 
I’m a fan.

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.

Caught at the One Show on Saturday by Justin Coffey of Touratech USA (website) and Peanut Butter Coast (website). Lower pic left to right, Chris Herrin, Angel Dupree, myself, my mom, and Karissa Coffey

My friend Justin Coffey from Peanut Butter Coast sent me this loving photo of my friend Chris Herrin today. 

Love you too guys. 

If you want the tee, they’ve got ‘em at See See.

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.

Hey Portlanders, go check out Mondo Sahara tomorrow (Thursday) night!
Thanks to the SFRC, it’ll be playing at the Clinton Street Theatre for a whole $5 (more info on the SFRC website). (This makes me miss Portland.)

A lovely example of many beautiful things about the Pacific Northwest- wr250 in it’s natural habitat during the first annual SFRC Back Forty Enduro (more info).
The Sang Froid Riding Club, creators of the controversial (and might I add, awesome) “Alley Sweeper Urban Enduro" (which is an annual fun filled mud flinging event each spring in Portland) pretty consistently have cool events to keep people busy despite the dreary PNW weather that hits each winter. Why did they plan the Back Forty Enduro? “Because riding around the woods with your buddies is better than staying home and waiting for spring.”
