There's just something about motorbikes. So long as you've got a leg over two wheels and you're surrounded by great friends, it doesn't really matter what the weather is like, does it? Motorcycles, and the community that develops around them, have a way of keeping the spirit alive, kindling it, and fanning flames, even when mother nature tries her damnedest to douse the spark.
We built Steeltown Garage Co. as an homage to this relentlessly free spirit, as a place to worship it, as a place to find it in yourself, and in others. We show up to work every day because we believe in the idea of a community of these free spirits, a community that is totally inclusive no matter your age, gender, race or sexuality. At our One Year Ride-In, it became clear to us that this is no longer just an 'idea'. The community is no longer something abstract. It is real. Very, very real.
Thanks to everyone who came out to celebrate our One Year with us. Thanks to those who rode, and to those who didn't. Thanks to those who scooped up one of our Limited One Year tees (S,M,L are all sold out) and thanks to those who generously donated to our Charity Giveaway Raffle and who helped us raise $1,460 in support of The Hamilton Interval House.
Thanks to the talented Matt Ryan Tobin for the amazing event artwork and art prints. Thanks to our main man behind the bar Scott and to the one and only Allan from Blackburn And Foster for the stellar photos (as always). And thanks to everyone who brought us gifts!
