The Riders Show | 2016

This was the second annual Riders Show in Seattle, WA. What exactly is it, you ask? A mix of vintage and custom, young and old, and organized with scrappy, resourceful, last minute planning. The result: a one day show where all of our good friends (or soon-to-be friends!) can hang out in a room full of fantastic motorcycles.

Garrett Johnson from Triumph of Seattle pulled it all together in record timing, and House Studios graciously hosted us and about 35 motorcycles. The Wick soft launched their moto themed coffee company with a mobile coffee cart serving up espresso and adult bevs. Larson Upholstery (who we share a studio with) debuted his new line of seat covers and tank pads for Triumphs and Ducatis.

This was our first time being vendors at a show, so we built a small display to show off some of our gear and brought along our rivet press and heat embosser for people to stamp their own Riders Show keychains for free. Aside from both of us here at Pack Animal being sick and pretty exhausted from getting everything ready for the show, we had a blast hanging out with friends all day, drinking bourbon mochas from The Wick, and getting to see peoples' surprised reactions upon holding our bags for the first time, finally seeing how rugged they actually are.
