What the **** is going on here!? See, I was brought up in the Bronx, which means I really get that being a total-bronx bad ass means having a chromed out Gixxer 1000 with a stretch and a fat rear tire so you can do long rolling burnouts. I get it. The “exotic” bikes were and still are very much left alone. Now I’ve seen customized cafe style Ducati’s but nothing to this extreme. Don’t get me wrong I think these bikes are beyond awesome looking, but we all know there are a group of Ducati loyalists plotting their revenge as this is being written. The looks just can’t be denied with an already beautiful Duci being dropped on its stomach and stretched out to next year. Oh god this is just too GOOD! Any one else would LOVE to see more of this?
btw, you guys peep the rear brake setup in-between the wheel and the frame?!?!?!?!? Explain!!
I really have been slacking on posts here. But, the facebook page is always being updated with the same type of content.
In other news, I have had this love affair with the old BMW R-series motorcycles. I think some of it comes with my soft spot for European machines. But most of it comes from the unique styling and beautiful lines. It gives off a very old world kind of look, which is great because it looks just as good with some modern, more simplistic styling. A great example here of a BMW R75 with a more modern, cafe racer styling and it looks right at home. Not to mention the modern rear end. It really aids to the versatility of the bike overall. This truly is a classic and a must own for an motorcycle enthusiast.
Something I’d love to do one day. Create a clothing line with a vibe of a person who rode in the 50’s-60’s. The style was just so dope back then. It fit in so well with the type of machine they were riding and the look it gives is simply classic dapper at its best. And of course you get a nice little sprinkling of bad ass incorporated. But enough about me, I really love what this company did, not only with their line of clothes but with the video they put together. I love that each bike is from a completely different genre, and time period. Different style bikes brought together, to make a great video.
I really wish I had some serious welding skills. I would open a custom motorcycle shop tomorrow. The attraction those bikes like the one below goes beyond an enthusiast attraction. It’s a damn addiction. Haven’t really mentioned it to many, but I bought a ’73 Yamaha XS650 that I plan on rebuilding, brat style. Not sure exactly what bike this is, but it looks like an 80’s Honda cb900. Could be wrong. Really digging the shortened rear end. Simplicity at it’s best.
I’ve got to say it again, but this is what it’s all about. The open road and two wheels. No worries, just your buddies and some vintage firepower. This video expresses something that is really hard to express. The freedom experienced with riding.
Having said that, this film was VERY well done. Great edit. Love the content and the bikes, along with the riding gear which works absolutely perfectly. Would love to do something like this someday, minus the lack of shower and food. haha

I really love when a company can not only create a dope product, but also know how to market it. This video is a perfect example. Firstly, it’s a very well put together video. Secondly, the artistic theme and vibe of the video is right on with the lifestyle and “look” this company is trying to show. I was already in love with the great motorcycles Untitled were building, this video makes me NEED a BMW R-series bike! haha. Props.
Enjoy the great artistic rendition.

Guess what guys! Back again with episode 3 of the Monkee Trip. Like I’ve said before in the previous posts, there is nothing like riding, so I could only imagine what a road trip with your buddies on classic motorcycles through Europe would feel like. It’s all about the freedom of the ride.
