The One Show Just Keeps Getting Bigger And Better

A photo gallery, since not all of us could make it

The One Moto Show is one of my favorite events of the year. Unlike lots of bike shows, the bikes in attendance range from purpose-built performers to barn finds to flat-out weirdness. There's something for everyone, and the show is more of a party or celebration of motorcycles than competition.

There's usually lots of mini-bike racing, real flat-track racing, and all sorts of shenanigans in between, making it an incredibly fun event overall. Since its inception, other shows like it have popped up in other parts of the country, but something about the city or Portland and the Pacific Northwest weather keep The One Show feeling different.

Oh, and it's hosted by See See Motorcycles and Thor Drake, an incredibly talented, incredibly weird, and incredibly friendly human who seems to be the glue that keeps all the magic present. This year, they partnered with Harley-Davidson to host the event, but had a number of other sponsors who brought really cool installations like Fox Racing, Alpinestars, Lucky Wheels Garage.

2017 marks the eighth year of the show, and this year's event had some 190 motorcycles on display, which filled 8-10 huge rooms.

I couldn't attend the show this year, but one of my favorite photographers Scott Toepfer, who created It's Better In The Wind, was going and kindly offered to send over some snaps. Here's the show through his lens.

Note: Scott did us a big favor by sending us all these photos to use, so I didn't press him hard to go do reporter things and get names and build information on the bikes. Sorry for the lackluster captions.

And More: Photos From The One Pro

The One Pro was the race held in conjunction with The One Show, taking place at the Salem Indoor Speedway on Sunday. There were classes for everything from mini bikes to purpose built racers to hooligan bikes and, from what Scott told me through texts throughout the day, the racing was great in each of them. Here are some more pics from his day at the races.
