With the pandemic shutting things down for the past year and some change, it’s nice to see things slowly getting back to normal. For us, normalcy is being surrounded by motorcycles and good people. Every year we look forward to getting out to events, checking out awesome motorcycles and talking with you the people. When the pandemic hit, all shows were halted and over the last few months we’ve seen many shows cancel and reschedule for 2022 due to Covid-19 restrictions in their states. When we caught wind that the One Moto Show was still a go out in Portland, this got us excited! In our eyes, this could be the start of shows + events coming back in the motorcycle world. Our pal Mark Adams just so happens to live out in Portland, and made sure to load us up with photos from this years One Moto Show.
For those of you who have never heard of the show, it’s put on by See See Motor Coffee Co out of Portland, Oregon. The show has continually grown over the years and has become one of the best motorcycle shows around. This year the show took place in the historic Zidell Barge Building on the Southwest waterfront. This massive open-air building was once home to ship makers in the 1930s. There’s something about these historic industrial buildings that compliment motorcycles vintage or new.
Whether you’re in to Choppers, Cafe Racers, Sport Bikes, Dirt bikes, you name it and you’ll see it at the One Moto Show. It’s an all inclusive show and truly has something for everyone, even those who weren’t bit by the motorcycle bug. Outside of the 2 wheeled works of art, the walls are lined with photographs, paintings, prints, helmet art and much more! As you make your way out of the show you’ll find plenty of vendors, food, and beer to keep you fueled for the weekend. The Seattle Cossacks Motorcycle Stunt and Drill Team put on live stunt shows throughout the weekend on their vintage Harley’s! Cap off your incredible weekend with the One Moto Show flat track races. Make sure to check out their site for next years dates, this is a show you don’t want to miss!
