Vehicles of Mad Max: Fury Road

The Mad Max trilogy, created by George Miller, captured the hearts of millions of people through the 30 or so years since is was made. In a post apocalyptic world of barron wasteland, Mad Max roams the roads in search of justice and juice. Fuel, that is. In 2015, a new Mad Max movie (from the original creator) will blast back into the limelight… 19 years after the third movie, “Beyond Thunderdome.”

The new movie seems to capture much of the original Mad Max mystique- tattered and elaborate fashions of the world’s end appearing in many forms. Masks, headdresses, deconstructed armor, leather, leather, and more leather. Explosions of epic proportions, crashes all of all types, super angry scary looking villains. The trailer is pretty fantastic…

A teaser shot from the new Mad Max: Fury Road movie. The original Mad Max series are some of my all time favorite films and definitely inspire my photography, taste in bikes, gear, and so much else. I cannot wait for this movie to be released… squee!

TBT: Coyote Velten Shoot

Some throwback thursday action… Before the motolady website, I spent most of my days working on photoshoots doing makeup, styling, and art direction. This is one of my favorite photoshoots, starring my first motorcycle… a 1980 Yamaha XJ Maxim 650. Heavily inspired by Mad Max, I outfitted model Skye Velten in armor, furs, and faux-leather.

With my Honda Civic chase car behind me, piloted by photographer Ben Reed, I rode about 100 miles out into the hills of Eastern Oregon so we could really set the post apocalyptic mood.  

Never thought I’d be posting a Dragon Ball Z photo… but the character Bulma (or so google reverse image search told me) looks pretty Tank Girl / Road Warrior here and I can’t help but dig that.

The BMW R 1200 GS Adventure was the only two wheeled vehicle to make the 10 Best Vehicles to Survive the Mayan Apocalypse list from International Business Times

Why? Well, the 8.7 gallon fuel tank is a good start. With the awesome mileage bikes get, you’re already well on your way to outrunning zombies and other threats (about 465 miles). It’s good on and off road, can fit through narrow spaces… 

It’s the only vehicle on their whole list I’d really want in the event of the apocalypse, what about you?
