Every hobbyist group needs an outlet. For Chicago motorcyclists, that’s Motoblot. It’s our chance to fly the moto freak flag. Old and new Triumphs, vintage Japanese bikes, some neglected Austrian cousins, and of course a sampling of American iron in the form of Indian and Harley are the most popular makes. The street fest style […]
Going to Milwaukee is like visiting family. Since we are based just south of the Wisconsin border, the state’s biggest city is home to many Analog fans. The show gives us a chance to get out of the shop after a long winter of building and test out new products, displays, and builds that […]
Barber Vintage Festival 2016 – Birmingham, AL Photos: Enrique Parrilla (@eparrillaphotos) The Barber Vintage Festival, hosted at Barber Motorsports Park in Birmingham, Alabama, is the year’s must attend event for motorcycle enthusiasts, particularly those excited by older machines. This year was the fourth year running that Analog Motorcycles made the pilgrimage, but the first year we […]
Motoblot 2016 Another year and another rousing success at Motoblot 2016, the annual custom motorcycle and hot rod show located in the heart of the West Town neighborhood in our hometown, Chicago. Despite the looming threat of rain and temperatures rising well into the 90’s (with a fair share of humidity), people turned out in droves […]

Revival Cycles does it again. The 3rd instance of this show gathers even more attendance, a fleet of dirt track racers, and the same par-setting builds in the custom motorcycle scene. We brought our Royal Scrambler, BMW R nineT/6, and the AMA BMW R75GS to show. The R75GS made its way over to Circuit of the […]
I’m not sure what makes a great motorcycle show exactly. Is it the bikes? The people? The scenery? The beer? The 2016 Mama Tried Show had a pretty good sampling of all of the above. Set in a new location for this year, and supposedly booked at the same location for the next 2 years as […]
If you missed Part 1 of The Shaking Hands Kissing Babies Tour, check it out here On my continued quest to get to the AIMExpo I had a couple days to kill between the Barber Vintage Festival in Alabama and my Orlando destination. So I met up with a couple friends while at Barber and […]
I’ve wanted to go to AIMExpo in Orlando for the last couple of years. I used to attend a similar dealer show in Indiana until it was terminated. It was a great place to meet people in the industry, make business contacts, and new friends. The Barber Vintage Festival in Birmingham, AL, is typically held in early […]
Earlier this year I had the pleasure of meeting Keino of Keino Cycles at the Mama Tried Show in Milwaukee. We had an immediate respect for one another’s craft. He brought a custom Vincent to that show and you rarely see builders customizing Vincents these days, so I was intrigued and impressed. Especially that it was a commissioned build […]
If there is a more Instagram-worthy ride happening in custom motorcycle scene out there today I am not aware of it.
