EVENT: Motostrano / Suburbanbikes / High Wheel Coffee - The THiNG
September is Motostrano's 10 year birthday!! To celebrate this miraculous accident (and some other stuff) we are planning a "Thing". The "Thing" will take place on Saturday 29 September and last most of the day and maybe even some of the night. If we're feeling really delusional, we'll stay up all night and ride out to the beach and watch the sun rise and jump in the ocean. Probably not. "The Thing" is hoped to be a day of hanging out, having fun, learning, hugging, drinking, riding, creating, listening, trying stuff out, talking and sharing ideas about the future and the past. We'll invite ghosts and figures from our past and we'll lure unsuspecting prospects and total strangers from our future and introduce them to the now. We'll honor the dead and respect the living, toast to our close calls and laugh about our crashes. We will invite our friends and you can invite friends and they can invite friends.
If you enjoy any of the following: motorcycles, bicycles, coffee, people, ideas, transportation, speed, wheelies, music, thumping music, friendly people, food, creativity, art, photography- you might enjoy this event.
So far, we know there will be test rides on our various Suburbanbikes (pedal and electric) vintage and modern high-octane-fueled racing supermoto and street motorcycles, a two-wheel inspired art show in the evening time, probably a band, hopefully the opening of High Wheel Coffee in our front office, most likely a single-speed/cruiser bicycle race out front. We're inviting reps from our moto and bike camps to come in and show us some stuff, more like an expo than a store. They'll be food and foamy suds and wine. We want to have any local bike-builders, customizers and modifiers show up and pass on their craft to the young and uninitiated. If you are really good at doing something or making something, or know some one who is, show up and tell others about it. Have a micro-business you're working on or at? Bring it. We will post more info here and in our newsletter and tweeter as it manifests itself.
