THE MOTOR-SURFER

.........................................................

Documenting life during the first attempt at restoring a vintage motorcycle.

Similar to the zen -like feeling that is realized through surfing,
motorcycle repair can elevate the mind to a meditative state that eludes time and space...
Meaning I obsess over it, get frustrated, yell, laugh at myself and overall waste a lot of time.

If I lived in 1871...


When I sometimes catch my wondering mind (probably severe A.D.D.) drifting off midday at work, I try to imagine what life was like back in the day and what I would look like/be doing with myself (see above picture). Not Roman gladiators tickling lions at the colosseum type of way back-in-the-day, more like the wax-mustached, bowlers hat, 3-piece leisure suite, playing cards and sipping mint juleps and bathtub bourbon back in the day. Wait I still do most of those things... Aaanywaaays, the good ol boys at The Ryde are pretty creative when it comes to surf art. I love all their designs and characters. Check out some of their T's.
