If you ride a motorcycle than you already know the feeling of exhilaration and freedom that coincide. Whether its the first ride of the season, or a warm summer night, its hard to wipe the ear to ear grin off your face. Check out Why I Ride, a video produced by ALCHEMYcreative and you won't be sorry you did.
Our second annual Welcome East Community Moto Show was held in Portsmouth NH, and went off without a hitch. Ninety plus Motorcycles and Mopeds entered into the show in all, with another few dozen lining the streets in support. A couple hundred spectators came out to see the lineup, drink some cold ones, and talk Moto's! All in all we couldn't be happier with the event. Below is the list of winners in each class as well as a photo and video recap! -Cheers

This past Sunday we had our first Adventure Rig meet up at Papa Wolf Co. While we love our bikes, the company car is a quad cab Tacoma so we figured it was high time we gave four wheeled vehicles their due. The weather wasn't the greatest on Sunday. But, a few cases of PBR, some hot coffee, friendly faces, and door prizes from ARB, Thule, and Mountain State Overland (Engel Coolers) made it worthwhile. Over 20 different adventure rigs showed up representing a broad range of ways to get out there. There were Jeeps, Land Cruisers, plenty of Land Rovers, Nissans, a pristine 80's Mazda B2300, and a Bronco that broke our hearts. It was a blast catching up with everyone, talking shop, and getting to ogle some sweet set ups. We're already scheming for the next meetup...
