Back in New York City


Hey everyone! Well we finally made it back to Brooklyn. 7301 miles, 10 states, Canada and a couple of sore asses. It was an amazing 30 day adventure that Sean and myself will always remember. We met alot of good people who helped us out along the way and we also had our fair share of boneheads who remarkably were also on bikes in many cases. It's amazing to me that even in the motorcycle culture, there are people out there who still discriminate another cyclist simply based on their bike. Even if they knew in the back of their mind that Triumph was a better bike. Ha

Anyways we just wanted to thank everyone for following us here on our *new* blog and also on Instagram , Facebook  and Kick Starter. It's nice to know that people such as yourselves are out there supporting Cotter Pin and what we are doing. Sean and I always looked forward reading your comments when we could and post great photos for all of you to follow. Thank you so much for all the feedback!

So now that were back in Brooklyn we've got big plans for Cotter Pin. As many of you know our Kick Starter campaign is only a couple days away from being finished and so far its a long shot that we will make our goal. You may be asking if this means a no-go for Cotter Pin? Heck no!!! We have already taken many pre-orders for the adventure roll, direction wallet and the tool book just from emails. We feel confident that even if we don't make our goal on Kick Starter, we will find ways to make all of this happen and make it happen on our own! 

We also have many new things we are working on including new shirts, cups, stickers, hats and other products for the motorcycle and adventurer. Stay tuned and keep checking the website for new products, updates and blog postings! Follow us on Instagram and Facebook and donate to the Kick Starter if you can please!! Also check out our events page for fun things in New York and beyond! Thanks y'all  


Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming, 'Wow! What a Ride!  ~Hunter S. Thompson
