Thor Drake and the See See Motor Coffee Co. crew have put together this great little video that perfectly captures the essence of The One Motorcycle Show that went down back in February. I will personally never forget it, as many new friendships were formed that will last for a long time to come. I remember having a strong longing to attend, having exchanged emails and admiration for many of the good folks involved in the show– particularly Thor and photographer Ray Gordon. So I headed out solo on my birthday weekend not knowing exactly what to expect– and it turned out to be absolutely the right call. The people and energy were amazing, as everyone was super-positive and inclusive in a way was genuine and inspiring. There were more amazing bikes there than you could shake a stick at– but it was truly the unity of the people coming together to celebrate and support one another that made it such an amazing experience. It felt like family, and that’s probably the best compliment that one can pay.
