For our first post this week I want to talk about the weekend warriors that made it big: Brother Moto. Bromo, for the sake of catchy nicknames, Is a motorcycle co-op where members gather and work on their bikes using a shared community of tools and information to keep your clapped out vintage deathtrap on the road. They provide a great environment to maintain your moto and are always looking to lend a hand.
This is Bobby and Jared, but I'll let them introduce themselves in the third person because who doesn't love a third person introspective introduction. (left) Bobby's first bike was a beat up Honda CB350 which he quickly regretted selling. His second bike was a blue BMW R90, which he quickly regretted selling. His third bike was a black BMW R90, which he quickly regretted wrecking. His current bike is a BMW R75 Toaster he doesn't regret it one bit. Jared (right), A graphic designer for the past decade he spent his free times wrenching on old 4x4s. After getting his first bike (1969 Honda CB350) he quickly got the motorcycle itch. You can see him at multiple coffee shops throughout East Atlanta on his 1979 BMW R100 or playing in the dirt on a vintage KDX200.
These guys were absolutely crushing the café scene in Atlanta and are the reason I go into motorcycles in the first place. When I finally bought my SR250 I was so excited that I called Jared 20 minutes later to sign me up for a membership. That was they day they shut their doors. After a long legal battle with the city of Atlanta Zoning commission Bromo was forced to relocate. They are still in the rebuilding process and will open their doors soon.
