MORE ABOUT #TheMotoSocialLONDON
With our vision set on building community and building camaraderie, we've joined forces with Jonathan Chattaway, Robert Maxwell, Luke Townsin, Marc Hoyler and Sean Riley to bring TheMotoSocial to London, UK. We could not be more stoked! Jonny, Rob, Luke, Marc and Sean will be our local community hosts and will continue hosting #TheMotoSocialLONDON on a monthly basis throughout the season. We'll be kicking off the season with our first event on Thursday May 30, 2019 at the Bike Shed, so spread the word & come hang with us! EVERYONE IS WELCOME! Bike or no bike. GOOD VIBES ONLY!
We're MORE ABOUT THE PEOPLE.
MOTORCYCLES ARE THE COMMON THREAD.
Our vision for #TheMotoSocialLONDON is the same as all the other cities. "To build community and to build camaraderie." Since the beginning, we've worked hard to create an event that was more about the people than the bikes themselves and an event that helped people connect with one another. We wanted to create an event that made our big cities feel a bit smaller and got people excited about seeing one another. Having hosted TheMotoSocial in Toronto now since 2013, we're starting to see new friendships forming, as well as a real positive shift in the culture of our Toronto community. There's a real sense of unity being felt across the city and we want to create that environment in every major city around the world. That's really what we're all about and what we're hoping to cultivate in London.
Jonny, Rob, LUKE, MARC AND Sean
COMMUNITY HOSTS of #themotosociALLONDON
Architect by trade, bike nut by nature. My lifelong love for motorcycles began at an early age. Weekends as a child were oily. In the garage helping my dad restore classic British bikes, or braaping around the motocross track on my little 50cc Honda QR. Jump ahead 30 years and my love of motorcycles has merged into a passion, bordering on obsession. Now an avid restorer and collector of all sorts of bikes, spanning the 60s, 70s & 80s, including Husky’s, Triumph’s, BSA’s, AJS’, Norton’s, Honda’s, Yamaha’s and Harley’s.
After forming life long bonds on The Great Mile, I am excited to provide a platform for others to do the same. I will happily talk bikes with anyone who’ll listen. So given the opportunity to bring #TheMotoSocial concept to London is a huge honour but really just another excuse to hang out with other bike nuts, have a beer and chat bikes.
My passion for motorcycling has enriched my life in more ways than I could have ever imagined. Through many an adventure on two wheels, I have discovered many parts of the globe and made lasting friendships as a result.
A keen passion for 70s/80s off road is where my real interest lies. I am also known for making impulsive bike purchases, the majority of which turned out to be awful decisions, in which my friends delight.
I love enduro, camping & building fires. I travel often between London, Cape Town and the US and I ride as often as I can. I also have a custom Honda Goldwing project on the go that I'm too embarrassed to show.
I am the director of an architects practice here in London. A family business that was set up by my father in the highland of Scotland. I’ve had a lifelong passion for design, architecture and photography and am fortunate to be able to say I love what I do. Growing up in a remote village on the West Coast of Scotland created a longing for travel and adventure. My life on two wheels started early with down hill mountain biking and messing with 50cc scooters in my mates garage. In my early 20’s my best mate introduced me to his brand new Ducati Monster and the rest as they say is history.
Riding has given me the freedom to travel the world. Regardless of where you are, be it Asia, South America or Europe you can be sure to meet amazing people who share your passion for everything on two wheels. I am honoured to be invited to be part of the next chapter of The Moto Social here in London and I look forward to meeting like-minded folk to talk bikes, drink coffee and just hang out.
With a love of bikes dating back to the early 80’s my obsession for life on two wheels has well and truly taken over... When I’m not elbow deep in rust and oil in my garage (the unofficial SOK HQ) you’ll find me behind various cameras or glued to a mac editing videos - preferably featuring motorcycles!
Since making Sons of Klaus semi-official a couple of years ago we try to do a few trips a year, whether it's a morning on the green lanes in Surrey or a full-blown adventure further afield.
Between us we've built a pretty decent collection of bikes – although mine aren't quite as museum-worthy as some in the SOK fleet...
