We CAN All Just Get Along!

Don't know what you all ended up doing over the long Presidents Day weekend, but we found ourselves scoping out The One Show up in balmy Portland, Ore. The annual homage to unconventional bike builds (now in its 6th year) drew everyone from PBR-swilling hipsters to rat riders to road racers and everyone in between, with packed crowds every day we went (an estimated 10,000+ folks over 3 days). Inside, enthusiasts were treated to some pretty clever designs from a wide assortment of regular Joes, but folks like, Dutch Trash Choppers, Lossa Engineering, Deus Ex Machina and Low Brow Customs also rolled their wares out. Of course the big boys were in attendance too, with Roland Sands' stripped-yet-loaded Indian Track Chief hogging the spotlight, and show sponsor ICON displaying its throwback GPZ900 'Old Ghost'. As usual, the show boasted a wild blend of styles and influences, with everything from vintage Harley panheads, old Beemer boxers, and pre-1977 Triumphs to a pile of Yamaha XS 650s in the mix. Bell Helmets held its usual 21 Helmets lid art display, and awards were given out for things like "Bike I'd Most Like to Ride," and "Doing A Lot With A Little," though honestly, we never could get close enough to make out all the labels. It didn't really matter though, 'cause at the end of the day, The One Show 2015 was an unbridled full-on success.
