Product description

'The Ride' explores motorcycle riding as it is meant to be: as a means of getting around with attitude, an extension of one's own body, an expression of personal freedom, but also as a significant challenge to technical expertise, craftsmanship, physics, discipline and driving skill.

Flap copy

The Ride explores motorcycle riding as it is meant to be: as a means of getting around with attitude, as an extension of one's own body, as an expression of personal freedom, but also as a significant challenge to technical expertise, craftsmanship, physics, discipline, and driving skill. The Ride features transformations such as a boring plastic motorcycle made in Japan in the 1990s turned into a slick cafe racer with an Italian feel, a soulless neo-baroque machine turned into an in-your-face scrambler, or an old find from grandpa's barn turned into a absolutely comfort-free hardtail with the coolest of sounds.
