    annual PDX moto hipster event

    Anyone planning to come to this in the spring: https://www.the1moto.com/ ?

    Sure, Parc will lambast it as an overly commercialized trendy garbage marketing event with impractical and unrideable bikes created by self-important douchebags, but still...
    It's happening, and we live here, and you might be interested.
    My pronouns are she/hers.

    To ride is to live.

    There, and back again. (photos from the epic journey)


    '88 Hawk GT (Rekka)
    '07 Shadow 600 (Gremlin)

    '90 Hawk GT (Fireball/red-tailed hawk) RIP

    Indeed, the One Moto Show has grown to an international event. Microbrews, espresso, whisky bars, bands, and several tattoo parlors. I would show my Hawk, but I really don't want to leave it there for three days. But if you are coming, PM Parcnhawk or Enigma T or me and we will get together.

        I'd leave feeling dirty

            Isn't this just a rebadged gentleman's ride or whatever they call that event?
            88 Blue Hawk GT - Under construction but rideable (guest approved)
            89 BlackHawk 2.0 - On the lift and being assembled
            90 Hawk GT (color as to yet be determined) - Still on the shelf in crates

              While it's not a Hand Built Show, it is more than a Distinguished Gentleman's Ride. There will certainly be plenty of crossover between the three though I think.

              I have been to the Hand Built in Austin while attending the MotoGP. It was pretty cool. Never been to The 1 Moto Show. A group of my friends go because they know plenty of people in Portland. And because booze and bikes as mentioned previously. It usually just looks like a $$$$$$$ weekend to me.

                It is an eclectic show. Everything from rat bikes, to unrestored vintage racers, to choppers and bobbers, to a few perfect restorations.

                  That does sound fun.

                    Best kind of shows are when the styles all mix. I hate shows where it's only one style/type of bike being shown. There is a reason I love Vintage days at Barber. You see every single bike ever made all in one glorious weekend. Along with racing and buddies and beer and whisky!

                        I had my artwork shown there once, a few years back. Unfortunately I couldn't make the trip in person. Whoever goes, give Parc a hug for me.

                          If anybody is planning on coming up/down/across/through to attend, let's hang out. Hugs not required but appreciated.

                            There are usually two or more tattoo booths. This one is recommended for beginning hipster riders.
