The One Motorcycle Show 2015

February 14, 2015/Jonathan Rundle/0 Comments

The One Motorcycle Show has been going on for 6 years now – growing every year. I took a two-wheeled trip down to Portland on an abnormally beautiful February weekend.

First things first, I get to visit my buddy Chris who is putting me up for the night. We meet up at a local bar called Leisure Public House in the St. John’s neighborhood of Portland. They have a bocce court which ended up providing us this “you make the call” moment. Who gets the point?

I also get to meet their rambunctious little heeler named Hank Williams – named after some singer or something.

This little guy’s name is Hank Williams. He probably has lots of rowdy friends. #dogsofinstagram

That night, the show opened with a line around the block. Or so I was told, we walked right in. Maybe there was a line at the time, maybe there wasn’t. Sorry if we skipped you. Anyway, the bikes were pretty damn cool, as you might guess.

The event also features local and national vendors, a swap meet, beer, food and an art exhibit featuring custom painted Bell Bullitt helmets called “21 Helmets.”

The real fun was outside at the mini-bike race. Plywood and hay bales are all that stand between you and a broken leg. Challenge your friends or just watch the cluster unfold before your eyes. Either way, fun for the whole family.

The next day, it was time to head back north. But not before stopping by the St. John’s bridge for a few photos. See my post on the St. John’s Bridge for more.
