A heartfelt thank you to the NYC moto community for showing up in full force, dressed to the nines, for the NYC premiere of The Distinguished Gentleman short doc by JP Kathoefer and Kirsten Midura. The film, now available on YouTube at johnnypuetz and on, details the inspiring recovery story of Vincent Nicolai and the community that supported him. More than 100 people attended including members of the Nicolai family, and the medical support crew that aided him through his recuperation. Our brilliant hosts at Kickstarter allowed us the use of their beautiful facility in Greenpoint, Brooklyn Brewery donated the suds for the evening, and we had an incredible group ot volunteers to help out ... from photographer Mark Squitieri, our bartender Andrea Derdzinski, hosts Mony Ty and Shelley Golan, and support from perennial community activists Ryan Snelson and Mike Higgins. We are proud to be part of this community and look forward to bringing you more incredible events in the coming months. For more info on the film, visit
