On Saturday 13th May we held our first Ride Culture - Oil Motorcycle event! Showcasing a celebration of the resurgent bobber, café racer and retro motorcycle scene.
Partnering with Fowler’s; Bristol’s well-known and long-established motorcycle dealer, we showcased a number of brands including Yamaha, Ducati, BMW, Belstaff, Bell and Hedon. In addition, the team at Fowlers picked a selection of cool machines to bring to the show, including its own ‘take’ on the all-conquering Triumph Bobber, plus a pair of Yamaha’s yard-built custom machines and a Moto Guzzi V7 Sport in retro colours.
After hosting BSFF previously for us, we held the event at our favourite venue - The Paintworks, who again failed to disappoint! The weekend of ride-outs, food, drink and music was a great success!
Musicians a plenty, we had to invite our resident lap-guitarist and street busker Slidey Sam, along with Blues slide-guitarist Steve Morrison, 3-piece Girl Rock Band Flowerpot, Jazz/Blues outfit The Weeds & Swing drummer Dylan Radclyffe.
Street food was provided by our very own Spoke & Stringer kitchen, perfectly complimented with craft ales, local cider and Easy Jose´ speciality Coffee.
