Despite rain and slippery road conditions, local motorcycling enthusiasts -- more than 75 people and well over 25 motorcycles -- 'represented' at The Moto Social - New York Season Opener event Thursday, May 2 at Irving Farm in Washington Square, turning out for two-wheeled conversations, coffee and some good vibes.

The first of five monthly events this spring and summer, with one set for the first Thursday of every month through September in NYC, #themotosocialnyc aims to build moto community and rider camaraderie. NYC is one of more than a dozen cities worldwide that host these events, which originated north of the border in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
