Flock Yeah 3: Cheeseburgers in Paradise

Fancy a spot of moped mayhem this weekend? The Latebirds are bringing their annual rally to Los Angeles in a three day orgy of pre-mix, pedals and inappropriate-for-August flannel. Events kick off tomorrow with a ride around LA and drinks/pizza at our favorite dive bar/pizza joint, Tony’s and Pizzanista, but things reach a climax on Saturday with a ride through Malibu and a warehouse party in Echo Park. Mopeds are what motorcycles are supposed to be.

    I’d say moped people are what motorcycle people are supposed to be, thoses guys have too much fun.

    Also, the demoscene-esque ending of the video is awesome.

      Agree!
      Honda’s Cub, the ‘meet the nicest people’ bike, would be in moped niche today.
      Maybe wheel’s gonna make another turn?

      We mostly ride outdated toys, and we have fun working on our own bikes, while a majority of moto people just have them serviced.
      We customize them, make them go “fast”(relavent term) or ride them stock. Its not about what you ride, but the fact that you ride. Its kind of hard to be pretentious with a giant effing grin across your face.

      Basically this sums it up!

      Mopeds rallies are so much fun that even the Swiss loosen up and get rad at them.

    Thanks for the compliments. This video was fun to make, shot in 2 weekends, and posted in a blaze of after effects and whiskey.

    Was that Grant riding with us on sunday? Never got to introduce myself

    Saturday was the best ride I have ever been on. 70 miles of Los Angeles. Parts of it you could live your whole life here and never see. Mulholland Hwy with a 2 mile long line of 2 strokes and smoke will do nothing but blow your mind.
