Aidan's Mini Bike Tour February 14, 2017 13:29
The distance is coast to coast.
Yes, that's right, Bean're and friend Tim Ford will be riding from Daytona Beach Florida ( the day after Bike Week) to San Diego, California. a back road distance of 3000 miles....on stock Yamaha 50cc bikes ! They will be doing this unassisted. No chase vehicle just the open road and will power. It will take 3 weeks to accomplish this ! This will be a new Guinness world record.
." First of all, we decided ( Tim Ford and myself) that since we were doing it unassisted and don't have room on our mini bikes to carry hardly anything, including clothes, we would just do it with the clothes we are wearing. We came up with the idea to wear Blues Brother suits the entire way. It just made more and more sense. They were on a mission from God and so are we." - Bean're
On this ride Bean're and Tim will spread the message about what ALD is and to advocate for ALD newborn screening in every state ! They will carry some proposed legislation to several of the state capitals which they will pass through. They are also are going to attend stops along the way and have fund raisers to help with the Aidan Jack Seeger Foundation.
You can support, follow the journey or enter the raffle at aidanhasaposse.org under the "Events" section.

THIS YEAR'S SHOW
8 years ago, we hosted the first One Motorcycle Show in an old abandoned warehouse building. It was crafted to celebrate the weird, rare, unconventional bikes that we loved, in a way that everyone could enjoy. We started out with no knowledge of how to put on a show: let alone what might happen if we did, or the expectation we would be doing it for the next 10 years. It’s almost hard to believe that it has been so long! Our driving force to keep this going was the feeling that we were adding to something that we loved. We want to give back to motorcycling. We want to be inclusive and inspire people to participate.
As things progressed , the show got bigger. We’ve been in multiple locations, and have been lucky to work with some of the most trusting sponsors within the greater world of motorcycles. It has been a non-stop learning process and we’ve always strived to make the show better each year. This has really been our biggest challenge: skating the line between “big” and small. We make this all work with the donation of time and money by people who want to see this happen again, every year. We are proud of this fact and it’s the main reason we’ve made it this far.
2017: our 8th show. PDX, OR - 900 North Columbia Blvd. Portland OR
As always, we are exceptionally pleased to keep the show admission at totally FREE to exhibit and attend. This is possible due to the contributions of great patrons like yourself and our amazing sponsors . We are focused on giving back to those who support and contribute to this yearly effort.
