Photos: Hammarhead x Ural x Hell For Leather

Dailies, Galleries -


People like to ask us why we don’t have booths at bike shows. Well, here’s why. We like to throw kick ass parties at fancy venues with hot women instead. Last Friday, we got together with Hammarhead and Ural for a little shindig at The Ace Hotel, coinciding with the New York Motorcycle Show. You can find all these photos on our Facebook page and on Flickr. Below, we’ll pull out a few of our favorites.

Special thanks to: James Hammarhead, Madina Merzhoeva, Jou-Yie Chou, Pabst Blue Ribbon, Brian Awitan, Alan Wilzig and Mark.

I like this photo because that chick is staring so adoringly at either Roland Sands or James Hammarhead, maybe both. What a couple of charmers.

Ray Abeyta harasses our DJ, Shanna White, aboard a Hammarhead Woodsman. If you ever need a metal DJ, look no further.

Isle of Man TT winner Dave Roper regales Markus Koelbl with war stories.

BFFs Alan Wilzig, JD Beach, the lovely Karin Wilzig, EBoz and me.

The Thunderdrome’s Andy Didorosi and everyone’s favorite Gawker IT girl Erin McGill.

Got a text from James: “This sidecar’s really heavy!” Don’t worry James, I’ll send Grant.

We like this photo.

Never have Stumptown customers been so perturbed.

We’re going to call this “New York’s fastest photo.”

    The Ace Hotel? You guys should have put some ironic mustaches on these bikes.

    Kidding! Looks like a fun shindig.

    The Hammarhead Woodsman is also very cool looking how about taking it for a spin and let us know how it rides.

  • cramer

    When are we going to learn more about the Hammarhead Ural sT?

    • Wes Siler

      Soon, James needs to get it shot properly first.

  • Nick

    Hey Andy! When are you going to drop some Thunderdrome 2011 details on us?

    • Wes Siler

      I think he’s got some 2011 dates to announce soon.

  • Marlon

    Have you got any photos of the kickarse party?

  • contender

    Looks like you throw a great party, though I feel a bit less a part of a community and a bit more watcher of people somewhat cooler than I am after these photos.

  • GuessWho

    Great party, I haven’t gotten that fucked in years and it felt right.

  • debra

  • Mark D

    Nothing matches up better with $15k motorcycles and $400 Japanese jeans than $2 tall boys of PBR :)

    If anyone ever asks about hipster motorcyclists again…
