Five Years One Moto

Post by Ryan Fish — Photographs and words by Amanda Leigh Smith

Working at the One Motorcycle Show one week after publishing a motorcycle-adventure editorial in Iron and Air magazine, photographer Amanda Leigh Smith was in prime position to capture some behind the scenes photos of the show before guests arrived:

“The weather was pretty crappy, but there was still an amazing turn out of people who came from all over.

It was at the YU. Last few years were at Sandbox Studios, which is a great venue too but I think the YU turned out great. It was 2 levels this year, so there were way more space: a larger stage for the bands, 2 bars, Sizzle Pie set up inside and made a mini See See Coffee shop where you could get See See coffee and food, and a much larger merch table. I think the NW Film Center also set up a space to watch short motorcycle films and they were being judged but I’m not 100% sure on that one. I know short films were playing, but I can’t remember exactly what was going on. All I know I was bummed I didn’t get a chance to watch any of them and I hope they are posted online sometime soon.

There were so many bikes of all different styles, so everyone – no matter what they were into – found something to appreciate. The other thing I loved about the show is how it brings friends and strangers from all over the states and abroad together to have a good time. It’s unlike any event I’ve ever been to and I give major kudos to the folks that put it all together for us to enjoy for free.”
