LOSERPALOOZA went down last weekend in Vancouver, BC - there were 35 vintage choppers in the Pipe Shop Venue that came to town from all over Canada and the West Coast. There were 20 artists that had their art hung on display, 2 tattooers, a fully functioning bar, a tin-type photographer, a chain-stitch embroiderer, a hammock gazebo and more. The 2 day event is an every-second-year event and is planned to happen again in 2020. Here’s some photos of the show by Willie Leak:
This Saturday I am co-hosting a ride from Vancouver to Pemberton for the Music Therapy Motorcycle Ride. In collaboration with Bikers For Autism, Music Heals is hosting this 1 night charity festival with bands Little Destroyer, The Boom Booms, Vicious Cycles MC and more. Carle B & I are joining the Vancouver Police Department and some other ride ambassadors this Saturday, August 25th and you can come toooo!! All proceeds go to a good place.

I spent the past month on the road with Cody Kemmet. We rode from Vancouver, BC down to the Mexican Baja on our shitty choppers. We took the slow roads along the coast the whole way, toured the East Coast of the Baja and the California deserts on the way up and attended Born Free 10.
Cody shoots film and develops it himself, here's some of his stuff...
The Vancouver meet-up on International Female Ride Day went off without a hitch. 100 women showed up to the Trev Deeley Harley Davidson on Saturday morning to celebrate and ride for the yearly event.
We hung out, drank coffee, and won some prizes before taking off on a group ride to Deep Cove. Over 100 motorcycles took over the Dollarton Highway and then the cul-de-sec right down on the ocean side in Deep Cove. The turnout was so amazing and the sun was out and warm.
The first time I hosted the Vancouver meet-up of IFRD, 4 ladies showed up and each year since, the attendance has doubled.
It makes me so stoked to ride next to these local ladies every year on this day. HOG is covering the story for their magazine (keep an eye out!) and CBC did a write up on their website. See it HERE.

It was WAY cool to have professional snowboarders Hana Beaman, Sarka Pancochova and Cheryl Maas come out to the Dream Roll last summer. These babes just finished competing in the Slopestyle and Big Air events in the Winter Olympics and are also badass motorcyclists and skateboarders. They made a documentary about their trip with Harley Davidson and Red bull and it just launched! Check it out below.
Spent last weekend in Milwaukee for the Mama Tried Show. It was my first time ever to the Midwest and it did not disappoint. I got sent to the show through Revolution Motorcycle Magazine, Canadas largest custom motorcycle mag. I covered the show and my trip for them and just wrapped up the story, so check it out in the next issue. Here's some sneak peek photos from the show:
I also got to go to the Harley Davidson Museum while I was in Milwaukee. If you ever get the chance to go to Milwaukee during the Mama Tried weekend, you won't be let down. There is so much to do there in a 3 day trip, especially if you're a motorcycle fanatic. Here's a shot of the Captain America bike from Easy Rider... No it's not the original, but a perfect replica. They have no clue where the original is (apparently..) I'll put up more shots after the story is released!
Blaine Connolly @easykarl and I collaborated on an article about the Oyster Run for the new issue of American Iron. You can get it at Shoppers Drug Mart, Wal Mart, Save On Foods, USA, like wherever you go really unless you never leave your house. Anyway, go get one and see me chopper cruising through American to the Oyster Run like a true biker Grandpa!

My flights are all booked to head down to Paradise Road Show - January 20/21st at the Ace Hotel and Swim Club in Palm Springs. My buds Lana MacNaughton, Adri Law & Chase Stopnik put this show on and it's a super tight-nit, family friendly, good-ol'-times motorcycle and hot rod show. All vehicles are pre 70s and there's a ton of amazing stuff that comes from all over the place. You can submit your car or bike through their website here.
Moto photographer dude Blaine Connolly and I put together an article from our 12 hour USA trip to the Oyster Run. I just got the news that it'll be ran in the next issue of American Iron... Keep an eye out and let me know if you see it cus I'll need to grab a copy too!
