#WyoStrong stories, brought to you by Central Bank & Trust, highlight Wyoming perseverance, ingenuity, creativity and resilience.
Brady Mclean, creator of the motorcycle lifestyle clothing brand, Go Fast Don’t Die, wasn’t interested in putting on another wet t-shirt, “old Harley” kind of motorcycle event like you’d expect when he set out to create a Wyoming-exclusive ride.
“This whole thing was inspired by incredibly popular runs that don’t have half of what Wyoming has to offer,” he explained, “It’s about bringing it back to Wyoming, motorcycles and friendships — and real scenery in the best state they made.”
For Mclean, like many Wyoming offspring, it’s about staying in Wyoming at all costs.
“I’m doing it because rather than moving away to find my “green grass,” I’m trying to water the lawn I have at home.”
He’s struck a chord with his creative branded clothing endeavor which has captured a motorcycle counter-culture that probably best described in pictures.
Now, he wants to spread these new vibes to his like-minded band of motorcycle lovers.
There is no sign up. Just show up ready to ride. Ride where and do what? Check it:
It’s a straight shot — leaving from Devils Tower at 1 PM on Friday, September 1, with a couple stops on the way to Sheridan.
“We’ll be stopping at Deluxe Harley in Gillette to check out the new 2018 HD’s that broke the internet last week. Then on to Blacktooth Brewing at 7:30 that night. Depending on riders we’ll probably hang at my place that night, camp in the yard and talk about the state of motorcycle culture.”
Riders will head up over 14 to Cody, ride out Chief Joseph Highway, and head back into town to hangout. The Silver Dollar Bar will play host and we’ll settle in for the night at Ponderosa Camp Ground.
Sunday, YELLOWSTONE!!! “We’re just gonna ride in, look around and see what we see, try not to steal any baby bison or fall in a geyser,” joked Mclean.
At the end of the run, it’s every man or woman for themselves on the way back. Participants are encourage to join for parts of the ride.
“We’re largely scoping it out and gathering a story to tell this year, we hope anyone who wants to contribute chooses to join,” he explained.
