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.

Epic.... Liberty Vintage Motorcycles

This rad video, showcasing Liberty Vintage Motorcycles, manages to make a statement about our society through the framework of a motorcycle shop. Liberty Vintage is owned by mechanical technician Adam Cramer of Philadelphia, and this well shot, short film shows clips of him in which he talks about his love of bikes and his observations about our youth and culture.

While I don’t think that Cramer’s message is 100% accurate, in that our generation never ceases to amaze me, he nonetheless talks about an undeniably important topic. It is one that can be applied to most walks of life, and is pretty damn motivating. The real problem at hand that Cramer discusses is that of apathy and a lack of hands-on hard work. Check any news outlet and sink into the abyss of endless problems that plague our world. The reality is that hard work, effort, and passion serve as the necessary tools to fix a lot of the problems we encounter.

Our generation certainly has the capacity to change the aspects of the world we see as being undesirable, and this video serves as a motivator in that direction. So don’t forget the value of working hard for what you want, and check out this video.
