Nowadays, people don't ride bikes only as an obligation or a transport, but for hobby too. That means that the design has taken an important role on today's bikers. In addition, if you take motorcycling as a way of living it's even more important. We do not only want to ride a bike but we want to look good on it. We clean our machines up before an important event and we dress in suitable gear, but above all: PROTECT YOUR BODY
I'm fed up of watching biker's gals as pillions wearing whatever shit they find, no matter how good or bad it is for the bike. I understand those of you who take them for a ride when you want to impress them, but you won't pull if you kill her. It can be okay to take them around the neighbourhood and braking twice to feel their boobs on your back -which we all do- but impressing them in a twisty road or in a hard day's ride touring along the coast is too much unless you provide her with full gear.
At least a proper jacket with protections, a decent helmet and recommend her to bring a pair of boots and jeans if leather is not possible and to finish, GLOVES. Your hands are the first part to touch the ground if you fell so gloves are not just for cold weather!. By the way, bikes are good to fuck as gals may look at you, but protect those little treasures girls are. My galfriend is actually telling me I freak her out with all this, but we mustn't be stupid even though we are tough guys, isn't that true?

What really impressed me most is that they decided to create a chopper. The bike looks fucking good, at least as I see it, and according to what I see it seems it's not a bloody show bike that nobody can use in real life situations.
According to my riding, this bike would be quite nice and good except for that beautiful tank that makes not enough room for a long distance badass like me. Putting some cargo to the bike seems rather difficult as well but there always are methods to do it. I have done it many times and I think we can handle it as long as you are going alone. Taking your girl on a trip like this may need a trailer for the bike... and that's not really beautiful on the bike is it?

I like to consider tattoes as the scars of your soul. When somebody reasonable gets a tattoo done, it's to express in an artistic way moods, experiences or feelings that anyone else could interpret from there, but at the same time, everyone else could get their own interpretation. That's art brothers and sisters.

With such a producer, bikes, girls, drugs and violence, this film looks pretty cool. An old glory from the old days when guys knew how to make films also appears but I won't say yet.
For me this is the perfect film -shall I say movie?- to be put on a screen while I get drunk in a bar and I have my bike right outside looking to beautiful gals and speaking to ugly fat guys like me. The pictures are really cool as the photography is amazing sometimes but the big problem here is that they tried to make so similar to Tarantino's that they really made a mess. Only for freaks anyhow.
On the other hand, my veteran little bike has been ridden through all contry, all kinds of surfaces and in all weather conditions and I fear not looking at any one who says is a real motard and tell him that he would not be able to folow me if we're going a long way non stopping. My friends tell me I'm quite crazy but a bike is for touring not only for having coffee just round the corner -which it's fucking cool as well- but to experience life on that machine. There are no good or bad bikes; there are just good or bad bikers.

And remember guys, this was just to show you the gilera from all angles.

But where are you my biker girl? Do you really exist? Will I ever find you?
I sometimes dream that money is not the problem and that I can get any bike I desire. I sometimes dream of getting all that's sorrounding me... but only a few get what they want and just by never giving up.
Some build their own bikes, others buy brand new, some are quite happy to inherit and old glory from their fathers' but the feeling is quite usually the same.
On the other hand, some do not deserve to ride what they're actually riding. But life is just a handful of jokes played on all of us.
Whatever you do, just do it right.
