We first heard of Original Garage Moto from their speciality motorcycle parts and we always wanted to learn more. Their upcoming movie, PROPAGANDA, was just the right excuse. Let’s go!

What is your first memory of being on a motorcycle?

Sam (Co-owner): I got introduced to motorcycles when I was 3 years old by my dad on a 69’ Mini Trail. From 4 Y-O to about 20 I kept riding & also racing dirt bikes. Ended up quitting racing because of injuries and going back to school to finish up my engineering degree in Montreal. It’s just been a part of me since the beginning!

AP (Co-owner): Got my first dirt-bike at 14 YO – A beat up kx125! Did not ride much since this thing was always broken haha That’s only when I actually moved in with Sam during our Degree in Mtl that I got a fresh H-Ds. From that point, Sam and I started to customize bikes and never stopped. That’s basically how we came up with the OG Idea.

Original Garage Moto, present yourself!

We are a young Motorcycle product and apparel company focused on the V-Twin market. Our inspiration comes from the love we have for motorcycles mixed with the desire to innovate and create unique products. Our crew roots come from dirtbikes racing & custom bikes building. We do have a strong background in engineering that pushes us trying to create new stuff for motorcycle enthusiasts.

This movie is in memory of Tyler Davidson, do you want to share something about him?

He was quiet, humble and his natural talent on a bike amazed everybody around him. He didn’t talk too much but his actions spoke for themselves. He was very calculated and analyzed everything before he’d set out to accomplish a task. We are blessed to have met shortly during this project with Tyler. He lived his life to the fullest while chasing this crazy dream that not too many people understand! It’s a battle and he was fighting through it like the rest of us riders and he will always be with us in spirit. Ride In Peace Tyler Davidson. 

Sequence Films

Propaganda is produced by Sequence Films, can you tell us more about how this project came together? 

The Sequence Films crew have always kept an interest in producing passion projects like this one. J.P. Veillet and Christian Martinez are childhood friends and producing a movie of this sort has always been a dream for them. But life got busy, Christian was on tour most of the year, timing was never proper to film a long length production. With Covid basically slowing down every industry and shows being canceled around the world, all those boys got together to pay tribute to the good old days when producing video content was more than a minute spark on Instagram.

Where can we see the movie, and WHEN??? 

The film will premiere in Montreal in the first week of August. We will be announcing it shortly.

Have you seen a change in the motorcycle world since the last 5 years?

The motorcycle trends keep changing while the community around it always shares the same good values. For us the Performance Harley scene & H-Ds stunt scene has just exploded over the past 2 years and keep growing with the Bagger GP series kicking this summer. That’s definitely where our focus is right now. We also keep our eyes on the electric motorcycles which are for sure coming up real soon.

Future projects for Original Garage? 

The results of the hard work we put in the last few years is finally paying off! We expanded our product line, got a new shop and sold our product in more than 19 countries. 2021 will bring many challenges for us as we start working on Indians motorcycles and race inspired carbon fiber parts. We also just acquired better engineering tools like a 3D scanner and high end 3D printing device which help us stay ahead of the waves & trends. This off season will be packed with a bunch of new rad parts for sure! We are working hard to keep our Canadian brothers proud of having a Hard Parts company brand right here in Québec, Canada!

Nous sommes à peine en juillet que tu as déjà épluché tous les résultats Google pour les recherches classiques comme:  Où aller en moto et les plus belles routes du Québec ? T’es pas seul. Peu importe notre niveau de passion pour la moto, on finit toujours à un moment où un autre à se demander où est-ce que je pourrais bien aller aujourd’hui? Pourtant on s’entend tous pour dire qu’en moto, ce n’est pas la destination qui compte mais la ride pour s’y rendre et les souvenirs qu’on crée en chemin. Ceci dit, pour faire de belles découvertes il…

On ne sait pas pour vous, mais pour nous le beau temps se mesure en nombre de rides de moto. Et on est chanceux au Québec, que tu partes de Montréal ou de Bromont, il y a pleins de coins à découvrir, seul ou entre amis.  On laisse la parole à Julie, qui nous fait découvrir un coin magique au pieds du mont Shefford. Je me suis promenée ce week-end à la Brasserie la Ferme, un endroit pittoresque et beau pour les yeux à découvrir absolument ! Je vous conseil d’éviter l’autoroute pour y aller, je suis plutôt passée par…

Texte: Raphaël GaspardPhoto d’entête: Max Vannienschoot Il y a peu de moyen de transport qui offre autant de liberté et de pur bonheur qu’une moto. Le vent dans la face, le paysage qui se déroule à l’horizon et le moteur qui gronde, c’est une recette pour moments parfaits. C’est un univers qui peut rester intimidant et il est facile de ne pas savoir par ou commencer et de remettre à plus tard le rêve de rouler en moto. Il existe déjà un bon nombre d’articles couvrant les points importants à considérer avant de passer à l’action. Je voulais plutôt donner…

Le Temple de la Renommée de la Moto du Canada abandonne son nom et devient le Panthéon Canadien de la Moto. Plus court et dynamique, cette nouvelle appellation a permis à l’institution de se doter d’un nouveau logo plus lisible et plus clair symboliquement. «Selon notre analyse, le lien entre les roues et la moto n’était pas évident dans le logo initial et les noms [anglais et français] étaient écrits en trop petits caractères», précise l’agence Muse Marketing. La refonte a ensuite été confiée au graphiste Dean de St. Croix. Pour créer le nouvel emblème, celui-ci a repositionné et réactualisé…

En ces temps de COVID-19 et confinement forcé, comme des milliers de motocyclistes québécois, vous hésitez entre le renouvellement d’immatriculation et le remisage de votre bolide à deux roues? Faites le calcul.

J’ai toujours aimé Dany Placard. Un artiste que je suis on et off depuis ses débuts fin 90, début 2000. Autant comme artiste solo qu’à l’époque où il était avec Plywood 3/4. Cette fois-ci, il nous présente J’connais rien à l’astronomie, son douzième, un album de 8 chansons qui sort sur l’étiquette de Simone Records.
