"MOG is more than just a word; it's a verb, a noun, an acronym, and above all, a state of mind for those who constantly challenge the limits of distance and embark on thrilling explorations. There is no road too long, no course too demanding for those who are willing to embrace the MOG spirit”.
ALMSTHRE + MOG fully embraces this sentiment. We aim not to redefine the essence of riding, but rather to experience the joy of two wheels in our own unique way. ALMSTHRE was born in Southern California, where our trails lie and this is what we ride.

Now, the Death Road has been done before. Going down the Death Road is nothing new. Going up the Death Road is less popular, but still, it's been done. So let's explain what makes this one different.

ALMSTHRE = Almost There

Being "almost there" can be subjective but we want to know why. We want to understand, why do you ride? why bikes? where are you going and where have you been? Regardless the answer we want to come along, we want to ride with you.
