Who We Are

We are two dudes and best of friends that have a love of “All Things Motorcycle.” We decided to put together this media effort to expose new gear, chase down exciting motorcycle events, document some great rides, dive into some DIY maintenance, and review some awesome bikes. Along the way, we hope to meet some kindred spirits that further cement the bonds that we motorcycle riders have, and hopefully expose some newbies to the freedoms that come with two wheels!

Love Riding 100%
Love Moto-Gear 100%
Hate the Winter 100%
Life Gets in The Way of Riding 100%

Meet the Team


Shaun Flannery

Great Ape

Shaun grew up riding Briggs and Stratton powered, welded together Swap Meet bikes. At age 10 he got a 1980 Yamaha YZ50 and was hooked on bikes since. He's owned everything from a Honda CRF450 to a Yamaha FJR1300. He currently is settling into his middle age and is riding a 2015 BMW R1200GSA. Shaun is a drummer, a music producer and engineer and a private jet pilot. His favorite pastime is wondering if time really exists at all.


Christian Brady


Christian has a love for the motorcycle lifestyle. The exhaust, the lines, the chrome, and most of all the people! Although he didn't start riding until recently, he's embraced the love affair whole-heartedly. For those that know, Christian is an actual bonafide rockstar, playing guitar in the metal band Hell Yeah! When he's not busy shredding on stage, he's busy chomping up miles on the highway. Christian is also a music producer and engineer, and enjoys a good game of Yard Darts from time to time.
