The 1 Moto Show - Portland, OR

Last weekend I made my way out to Portland, Oregon to check out The 1 Moto Show. Last April I rode down to Austin, TX to see their first non-Portland version of the show but kept hearing that the Portland show was the one I should be checking out. We flew into some unusually wintery weather for Portland which stuck around the entire weekend and made things interesting.

The Portland show did not disappoint and it was a great weekend of custom motorcycles. A lot of the builders in the show were furiously building right up until the show and it was impressive to follow them online and see them finish their bikes and get them to the show in time.

I've said it before but I really enjoy the 1 Moto Show and think it has huge appeal because of the wide range of bikes. There's choppers, cafes, street trackers, racebikes, just about everything you can think of and even some you can't. The show attracts people who love motorcycles and it makes for a great vibe and a fun weekend.

The 1 show also has tons of great photography and art on display, a custom helmet show, and bands in the evening. The show is all about fun but that doesn't mean there weren't any awards. The talented Ornamental Conifer painted some great looking gas tanks and select judges gave them away to the bike they best felt represented the award.

We had a really great weekend at the show and want to extend a big thank you to the See See Motorcycles and The 1 Moto Show crew for putting on an excellent show. We'll be back next year for sure and highly recommend checking it out if you can make your way to Portland next February.
