I love what the guys and gals in Portland are doing with The One Moto Show and one of these years, I’m going to make it out there. Tony and Sadiki from Gentlemen’s Brim couldn’t wait. Our fashionable blogging buddies hopped on a plane and took a ride to the snow-covered land of Portlandia to see the show. They’re sharing their awesome photos from the show with us… Indulge in a little west coast building paradise.

Editors Note: Casandra Strafer was injured in a motorcycle crash that took the life of her fiance and our friend, Dmitri Medvedev. Below, she shares her story of Motorcycle Lobby Day in Richmond, VA on 1/20/14. Thanks to her for helping spread the word of motorcycle safety and awareness. ======== No matter if you’re a resident of the Commonwealth or not, chances are you ride in the metropolitan area which means laws impact us in the District, Maryland and Virginia. I joined VCOM (Virginia Coalition of Motorcyclists) simply because I have permanent residency in VA and of course because of my intimate experience with the laws after my accident over a year ago. Instead of embarking on a fruitless endeavor for money from the man who killed Dmitri and injured me, I decided to start putting my energies into laws supporting motorcycle safety and awareness. The motorcycle lifestyle is usually

Check out Ride Academy, a two day skills course for motorcycle riders and racers. It is based on flat track racing technique, but the focus on body positioning, throttle/brake, traction, etc, apply to street riding as well. Learn from local legend and Triumph sponsored Flat Track Racer, Johnny Lewis. The video shows how much of a blast it is… We’ve arranged for the referral-program shown on the website to be converted into a discount-program, so anyone who signs up and uses the code ‘2020’ will receive a $25 discount at signup, reducing the cost to $475. Application is on the site and they can take CC# over the phone. Also, for those of you who don’t have off road gear, they can help with that part. Mike Sponseller is also looking into a hotel contact in Williamsburg, to see about possible room discounts. The instructor list includes very talented current

Distinguished Gentlemen Are We | September 29, 2013

dgr2013-038

Sunday’s International Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride was an amazing success. Suited up riders around the world saddled up and rode around nearly 150 cities. We, here in Washington, DC, had a mighty impressive group as well. Over 40 bikes piloted by gentleman and ladies did the run from Georgetown to Old Town and back to the Capitol (Thanks to our ride-along Capitol Police officers, we got some sweet, but short-term front-row parking spaces). The bikes and riders came from all around the region – even drawing in CafeRacer.xxx‘s Sasha Valentine from Baltimore. The weather was perfect and so was the company. We even got some DCist press – with great photos from J. Levinson. Below are shots from DC Triumph, Tony Gyepi-Garbrah of Gentlemen’s Brim, Nik Fialka and Aaron Brodsky. Thanks to everyone for coming out. You can still donate to the cause here… https://www.gentlemansride.com/rider/dctriumph

Ready to Get Distinguished

Distinguished Gentleman in DC

A year ago, some Aussie fellas came up with a brilliant idea. Why not take a break from our regular riding gear – mostly denim and leather – and step it up a notch. Bring on the suit and ties along with a bit of dapper style, and you have the Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride. We joined the international event last year, and had a blast showing a little style in the nation’s capital. Now in its second year, Mark Hawwa the Sydney based leader of this international event, decided to put purpose behind the fun. Now, not only is the event meant to be a distinguished blast – we’re also raising money for Prostate Cancer. Sunday, September 29, 2013DC meetup at Key Bridge Exxon 3607 M St NW, Washington, DC 20007 11:00am (Kick Stands Up at 11:30am) Heading down GW Parkway to Old Town Old Town Alexandria meetup at Misha’s Coffee

Remembering Dmitri

| September 19th, 2013 | 1 Comment »
Dmitri4

A year ago today (September 19, 2012) we lost a good friend, Dmitri Medvedev. An inattentive driver making an errant left turn took Dmitri’s life. Cassie, his fiancee, was riding on the back and survived. Today, she helps keep Dmitri’s memory and spirit alive. We, here at DC Triumph, have been inspired to spread the message – WATCH FOR MOTORCYCLES. If those on four wheels would put down their cell phones and watch the world around them, we’ll all be safer for it… In a recent Facebook post, Cassie wrote… “…one year ago Dmitri and I embarked on a beautiful journey to WV. We stopped for classic cars and lunch. I picked up the tab. We got frozen custard and watched an elderly couple next to us share their cone. We searched out vintage clothing and visited our favorite Pocomo’s Iron Works. Dmitri met a black bear that he thought

Loaded 2013 | Sweet Ride to the Sho’

What do you get when you combine CafeRacer.xxx‘s One Year anniversary, with Ocean City Bike Week and Loaded Gun Customs‘ Terraplane Gallery opening? One hell of a party. Saturday morning (9/14), Mike Ikenberry,Tony Gyepi-Garbrah and Sadiki Harriott joined me on the simple but beautiful 2 1/2 hour ride across the Bay Bridge and onto the Eastern Shore. Delaware to be exact. Being a perfect riding day we passed (and were passed by) many bikes of all shapes and sizes. Ocean City Bike Week was in a different location, but the region is small enough that you see bikes going in all directions. It even got so bad, that people stopped doing the customary “bike wave” due to left-hand fatigue. Sasha Valentine was there offering up her latest brew – CafeRacer.xxx Coffee. Kevin Dunworth of Loaded Gun was our proper host – along with his dad – showing the mad scientist
