One of my favorite trinkets from The One Moto Show this year- a Gerber Gear 5-in-1 metric hex key zipper pull/keychain. So perfect for every day carry and moto rides.
It’s a whopping $12 and way useful, you can check it out on the Gerber website.

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 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.

Road trip to the One Motorcycle Show 2014 (Part One?) - "We’re Not In SoCal Anymore!"

Loaded the Monster into my (super ridiculously tall) Tacoma yesterday morning and headed out to San Francisco to meet Jensen Beeler of Asphalt & Rubber for the next leg of the trip. 

Before you even start- no, hell no I’m not riding it there. There needs to be no other reason besides the safety of it- I have no want to drive through snow and sleet for the tail end of 1300 miles. I’d prefer Pandora and I get there in one piece. 

Anyway, I managed to miss all the LA traffic and blasted from San Diego to SF in about 7 hours. Crashed out a few hours later, got myself going around 9. We unloaded Pandora from my truck (always a feat) and put her up in Jensen’s trailer. Multiple messages from friends and instagrammers warning me about the weather in Portland which has turned from blah to pretty terrible.

The weather through Grant’s Pass is always sketchy for this trip, and dead of winter is not the choice time to go. There’s a winter storm warning there now, snow in Corvallis, Eugene, and now Portland. It’s 23 degrees there today, heavy winds and snowfall. 

Oh joy. I wonder why I moved to SoCal? The Monster is getting gross from road grime, which will happen eventually but still hurts to see. 

Anyway, here goes nothing. Driving through Oregon is going to be sketchy. (Drivers in the Pacific Northwest aren’t known for their snow driving skills.)
