Men's Moto Collection TEST

A Visit To The Crowe's Nest

October 2016

The weekend was a 250-mile-long, white-knuckled blur of dirt roads and pine. Empty asphalt switchbacks quickly gave way to rocky trails and wispy atmosphere. We picked our head up off rolled up leather jackets as the sun rose each morning, got well-acquainted with fire-forged oatmeal and black coffee, and even crossed paths with a black bear and her cub. Welcome to beautiful British Columbia.

It was just what the doctor ordered, getting away from the city noise. We joined our buddy James Crowe for a high-country ride and camping trip. As you may recall from last year's Moto Collection, James usually keeps busy fabricating custom motorcycles. But when he decides to drop his tools and let loose, it's best to clear your calendar. We headed back to the airport on Monday morning and all we could think about was the hum of our motors as James shouted over, “life’s pretty epic at 8,000 feet...” We couldn’t agree more.

The Moto Collection
In The Field - Norway Ode to the Midnight Sun Winter means business in Norway. So to squeeze out that last bit of Scandinavian sun before its arrival, Joel & Samuel hatched a plan: take on 700+ miles of serpentine mountain road armed with only what their bikes can hold. As soon as we caught wind of the trip, we booked a flight for our pal Aaron and sent him to Oslo with his camera, and gear from our new Moto Collection to share. These three fellas are well-versed in the art of motorcycle adventure, so stay tuned for stories, photos, and FOMO as they traverse fjord country.
