Inspiration Friday: Motorcycle Shows are Back!

Are you bored? Looking for something to do? Want to socialize? Love motorcycles? Total Motorcycle has the cure… Inspiration Friday, Motorcycle Shows are Back with the first motorcycle show of 2021, the The One Show USA! It’s real, non-virtual, bikes, beer, live people and custom builds! 200+ custom motorcycle builds, motorcycle-inspired art showcases, art show & silent auction, vendor mall, brand activations & experiences, dirt racing, motorcycle demos even food, beverages & bar! What is there not to get excited about? Oh and FREE parking too!

What a crazy fun experience for the whole family! But that’s not all folks!

The One Show is just the first in (we hope) a long list of motorcycle shows, events and rallies we will be covering for our readers in 2021 as live slowly returns back to normal. It will be GREAT to see the new 2021 and 2022 motorcycle models again, in person, and meet your fellow riders and motorbike enthusiasts. I don’t know about you, but I can hardly wait.

For now, The One Show sounds like a great way to get out, be inspired and do something we all sorely miss… social activity! See our coverage of the 2019 and 2020 The One Shows.

…and as a BONUS, this just came up, the Colorado Motorcycle Expo @ Dirty Dogs: Monthly Swap Meet! A modified monthly swap meet designed specifically for local vendors, occurring once a month at Colorado’s #1 biker bar, Dirty Dogs Roadhouse!

It is unclear what 2021 holds for biker community events, but our hope is by having an alternate venue for swap and fun, we can all continue to move forward. Our next monthly swap meet will occur on April 11th, from 10am to 4pm. We plan to continue these events monthly, with crowds and vendor space expanding as the weather gets warmer and restrictions loosen.

 

Till then, don’t forget to check out our 400,000 pages of guides, reviews, handbooks, forums and over 5o years of motorcycles right here on the largest motorcycle website in the world. (That’s gotta be worth $1 a month to support us right?)

Total Motorcycle would like to thank The One Show for inspiring us to bring you this week’s Inspiration Friday: Motorcycle Shows are Back! Each week we bring you another Inspiring Motorcycle story to inspire you to get out and ride! Thank you for your support for visiting us and supporting us at Patreon for just $1 a month.

THE ONE MOTORCYCLE SHOW
The One Show must go on! As it turns out, we still love motorcycles, so we’re going back to our roots and focusing on what the heart of the show has always been: the bikes.

THE ONE MOTORCYCLE SHOW 2021  

Hosted at the historic Zidell Yards in Portland Oregon. A huge open-air venue with one way traffic flow and dedicated viewing times for a One Moto show reimagined. 

  Inspiration Friday Motorcycle Shows are Back

Portland, Ore. – April 30, 2021 – See See Motor Coffee Company, which operates the One Motorcycle Show (the One Show), announced that the 12th annual edition of the idiosyncratic art show and cultural celebration will move to the Zidell Yards Barge Building in Portland, Oregon. The historic family-owned barge construction facility launched its last ship in 2017 and is the perfect venue for The One Moto Show. It provides a safe, open-air locale where viewers from all walks of life will come to see custom motorcycles, art, food, and more.

The One Show runs from Friday, April 30 to Sunday, May 2, 2021. The One Show is an inclusive showcase crafted to celebrate weird, rare, custom, classic, and unconventional bikes in a way that everyone can enjoy. Started with the idea to bring together a small community of enthusiasts in underground venues of Portland, the One Show has expanded to an expansive event that is adored around the country and admired around the globe.

“We built the One Show as a bonfire stoked by biking as art, sport, and culture,” says Thor Drake, founder. “The One Show is for bikers, non-bikers, bike curious, and everyone in between — young and old. It’s a celebration.”

Destination travelers and locals alike will celebrate Pacific Northwest bike culture and discover the ways it intersects with the celebrated art, music, and food communities that put Portland on the map. But the heart and soul of the One Show continues to be its unparalleled collection of custom-built motorcycles by inspired builders from all over the world. An estimated 160 bike builders will showcase 200 custom-built bikes at the 2021 event, representing all eras of motorcycling.

Alongside this year’s best bikes, over 60 national and international visual artists will exhibit their creations across painting, sculpture, and mixed mediums. Additionally, the One Show’s ever-popular collection of uniquely detailed bike helmets will return, with the 21 Helmets show: an exhibition of customized, modified, and outright wild motorcycle helmets.

Precautions Sponsors and Vendors

As the rest of the world adapted to the modifications needed to operate during the crisis, so has the One Moto Show. “Since March of last year, the whole world has changed but one thing that hasn’t is our love for motorcycles,” says Thor. The production team is taking great care to implement and enforce safety precautions including:

  • Timed ticket sessions throughout the weekend with limited headcount per session.
  • Contactless registration, parking, and viewing.
  • Mandatory masks and social distancing while attending the show.
  • Dedicated outdoor food and beverage areas.
  • Open-air venue with a large square footprint to headcount ratio.
  • Sanitizer stations throughout the space.
