Denton Moto Collective was born late on the afternoon of Friday, November 13th, 2015. Fabian Campos and David Morales just didn't know it then.
That not-so-chance encounter brought together two worlds that were headed in the same direction but with a completely different background and skill set.
At the urging and offer to help from a good friend, Fabian was trailering one of his four vintage motorcycles (a 1966 Honda CB160 vintage racer) from Denton to Lewisville. He stopped at the corner gas station to make sure the straps were tight, a short 1.2 miles from home. He never made it onto the highway.
Trailing by only a couple of seconds behind, David (a.k.a. @davmomoto) found himself directly behind said vintage racer. As a long-time motorcycle builder and overall motonerd, he had to know the story of the bike he was following behind. So he pulled over, asked Fabian if he could take a closer look and then hopped out to have a chat.
After two hours of hanging out talking all things moto, the seed of Denton Moto Collective was planted and quickly grew into the vision before you.

This is just the beginning. We have big dreams and big plans. We don't know what the future holds and we don't know how this story ends. But we're certainly not going to sit around and wait to see what happens. Join us as we "chase it down". We would be honored.
For now we'll leave you with one of the most inspirational videos we've come across during this journey of ours. It's not only moto-centric but it also captures the essence of what it takes to pursue this dream. Kudos to Cale Glendening and his crew for such an amazing work of art.
