Motos Across America: Baltimore Stop

Cafe Racer XXX is stoked to partner with Whiskey Grade to kick off the "Motos Across America Tour" on Tuesday, May 17th. For those that aren't familiar with Baltimore, we've got an amazing city!! and I say that with all heart and throttle. A mix of grit and charm, Baltimore is an incredible town packed with art, music, diverse culture, hipster currents, and a thriving food scene. We have world famous crabs, endless events, the Baltimore Harbor, flourishing businesses and as home to "The Wire", yes our fair share of crime. In terms of motorcycling, our roots are strong and in fact, East Coast Triumph Motorcycles was once headquartered here. We have strong ties to racing legends like Gary Nixon! We are actually home to a number of moto crews, publications, collectives, legends and shops including: Cafe Racer XXX, Lowside Magazine, The Mufflers, Sixteen Tons, Tom Turnbull, 515 Moto, 12 O'clock Boys and the respected old timers over at Mid Atlantic OSSA to name a few.  

We are excited to bring everyone together tomorrow night at the Baltimore Tattoo Museum for an array of attractions and eats. First, Dangerously Delicious Pies, recently featured on the Food Network has donated an array of their sweet and savory pies! A special thank you to Rodney and the Canton location.

Secondly, Diablo Doughnuts donated some his kick ass doughnuts and unarguably the absolute best doughnuts in town! Thank you Roslan, you're killing the doughnut scene.

The gents at the Baltimore tattoo musuem are finalizing moto flash for discounted ink!

Atticus Anonymous will be painting helmets for a suggested donation!

 Mid-Atlantic OSSA will be bringing a pair of vintage Triumphs for display.

Rebel Yell, a tour sponsor will provide whiskey samples to attendees. Craft cocktails will be served by Michael Trevor Young using two of his best Bourbon recipes.

 

Whiskey Grade will have their latest collection of apparel on display!

Duclaw Brewing company has donated a keg of their Morgazm, a Grapefruit Blonde Ale.

 And last, we will be serving our 865cc coffee and have our Big Babe collaboration cigar available. 

 

We are looking forward to seeing everyone tomorrow night! Here is the event flyer

<and> the link to our FB event! A big thank you to all the local and tour sponsors!

Cheers!

This alliance is focused on illustrating the range of creative options that can be employed in customizing a Royal Enfield. At the same time highlighting the expertise and artisanship of the selected customizer tasked with bringing the build to life; Sean Skinner of MotoRelic in Hamilton, VA. This world class builder will implement the build vision voted on and facilitated by Café Racer XXX.  

"The opportunity to show the motorcycle world my work is very exciting,” said Skinner. “I am honored and looking forward to working with Royal Enfield, Cafe Racer XXX and the voting public during this adventure"

Royal Enfield is interested in fostering creative visions in the ever growing custom build community.  This constitutes the third build of 2016 for Royal Enfield North America.  This particular build comes with a twist; for a month the motorcycle community will be asked to vote on various aspects such as build design, color, exhaust positioning and a few curve balls for the builder. The build will take place from May-August 2016 and then showcased from September forward.

The public will be the final decision maker on main aspects of the build and will be asked to vote at www.caferacerxxx.com and follow progress there or at Royal Enfield on twitter @royalenfield_na

"I deeply appreciate the history that Royal Enfield brings to the table and I am inspired by the popularity of the Continental GT in the marketplace,” said Sasha Valentine, owner of Cafe Racer XXX. “I am thrilled to help facilitate the custom moto community in voting, help curate the build, and to work with a very talented builder.”

RENA earlier this year facilitated another build which was a collaboration build between See See Motorcycles (Portland, OR) and Poler Stuff (Portland, OR) on a "Camp Vibes" motorcycle that is currently on tour along the est oast. The base of this build started with a Classic 500 and developed into a highly unique motorcycle suited for outdoor adventure. To see this build, follow See See Motorcycles and/or Poler Stuff  ( @seeseemotorcycles and @polerstuff ).   

Following that build, in February RENA unveiled a custom build by Analog Motorcycles; the Royal Scrambler. This highly touted build debuted at the MAMA Tried show in Milwaukee, WI as a purpose built ice-racer/scrambler. The build was also featured at the Handbuilt show in Austin, TX and will soon be on tour with Motos Across America slated to hit 13 key cities nationwide.
