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.


Deus ex Machina - opens in Canggu, Bali

Just when you thought the raddest frickin motorcycle/Surf shop couldn't get any cooler, Dues Ex Machina (Latin for "God out of the Machine") open a full compound in the Mecca of Surf a.k.a Canggu, Bali. In a country where 90% of the population rides scooters and motorcycles and 90% of the tourists are traveling surfers and topless European girls... I couldn't have picked a better location. Their Bali complex - The Temple of Enthusiasm - will house a showroom, art gallery, workshop facilities, photography studio (run by Dustin Humphrey, see main photo of my blog), artists studio, and surfboard shaping bay. Uh, can I please move in? If I could design a dream home, it would include all of the above... and probably be in Bali.

I love their motorcycles. The design speaks my language and their retro resin-tinted twin-fins look amazing too. They also make fixed-gear bicycles. Is there anything these guys don't do that isn't amazing? (ok, maybe the fixed-gear bike thing, but still!). Check out their blog(s) too, always up to something fun (board swap meets, cycle swap meets, art shows, etc...).
