The Low Season Film

Featuring a 350 Royal Enfield tripping through India.
"Exactly a year ago I was traveling home from a shoot in Sri Lanka, and decided to have a stopover in India. I had a ticket booked into Delhi and plans to travel by train to the surrounding areas, but the region I really wanted to check out was Ladakh, an isolated mountain region in the most northern tip of India, between Pakistan and China. Just one problem: It was early April, the end of winter, and still very much so the Low Season." THE LOW SEASON from Andrew David Watson on Vimeovia 8Negro

BSA Thunderbolt in Chris Daughtry Video

Free-association searching YouTube (oh what you don't occasionally do that?), I found this music video by Chris Daughtry "Start of Something Good" that stars a 1970(?) BSA Thunderbolt. I'm not sure the year, but it really is the star of the show. Once it comes in to view, you can't wait for it to have another scene. During the video a young guy possibly changes a fouled spark plug. Who knows, but in the end, it serves it's purpose - he gets the girl. Do you know the year? Post a comment and tell us.

"Blood and Oil" by Cale Glendening

"The crushing allure of pure acceleration. Chase. It. Down."

You'll watch this a few times. Guaranteed. Maybe just to hear the voice, but definitely to see the shots of vintage motorcycles flying by only to be stopped in super slo-mo. You might even try and write down some of the thoughts. But in the end, you'll get off your seat and go do the thing you know you should do.

Cale Glendening wants you to wake up, be more creative, and live. That's the inspiration and message of this wonderfully shot short film, Blood & Oil.

Custom Laser Death BSA

Over at Bike Exif you can see the custom Laser-Death BSA, cobbled together over time by artist Maxwell Paternoster from the CorpsesFromHell blog. I always loved this bike because of its character and patina. And there is something about the photos of the bike on display in the house that is very comforting.
