Founded in 2013, Brother Moto is a community space in East Atlanta fostered by Bobby Russell and Jared Erickson. Their goal, as they put it, is to provide a location and resources for the “motocurious” to get their hands dirty. They provide the workspace, motorcycle lifts, and tools while it is up to you to provide the bike and the desire to make it better. It’s a place to go to ask questions, talk with other motorcyclists, and if all else fails, consult with the professional mechanic on hand to brainstorm and troubleshoot problems. There is also an espresso bar to fuel late-night projects.

Such a cool idea! I would love to have a place like that to go to.
