Lindsey Marie Hanson on her beautiful customized vintage Harley, captured hitting “The Snake” near Los Angeles, CA.  You’ve probably seen photos from “The Snake” without even realizing- it’s a 21-turn portion of Mulholland Highway just above the Rock Store. “Edwards’ Corner” is the last turn heading uphill through the snake and is rather internet famous for capturing motorcyclists outriding their bike, talent, and/or conditions.

Sofi Tsingos (parts lady at Ducati Dallas) and her 1977 Honda CB550 cafe racer build. Words on the process from Sofi- My dad and I started to really get into Cafe bikes back in 09’.
