Our friend Eugene sent us along this great short film over on Moto-Mucci, we thought you may enjoy it.
If you’re from Vancouver and you ride a motorcycle, you know that The 1 Show has sort of become a must do event for us Canadians..
Every year we shut The Shop down for a few days to give everyone a bit of a break and to go out and have a good time. This year was just that… a Great time filled with so many great new and old friends, with tons of great bikes for us to nerd out over..
If you made it down, we hope you had a great time, if you didn’t… well next year !
