"Bill Murray once got lost in the jungles of Bali on a motorbike. He was later found putting on an impromptu show with all of the locals of a small village in attendance, even though he didn’t speak Balinese."
According to the interwebs (newyorker.com and others) this anecdote about the amazing Bill Murray is completely true. Indeed, perhaps one of the most interesting people in the world.

Working with the infinitely talented Gregor Halenda was an absolute treat- and before all the photos come out for the joint gear review project with Silodrome, I wanted to share this shot from lighting tests that we were particularly fond of. 
While you might not recognize his name, you’ve seen his work. In the Ducati model catalogue, Rev’It’s campaign with Ducati, and so much more. Your eyes will thank you for hopping over to his website for a look-see- gregorhalenda.com.
Huge thanks to Gregor for making this work on a tight schedule before a big trip, James McBride for making things happen from across the globe, and Bill Blacke for bringing his Guzzi down for the shoot.

Hunter S. Thompson at his ranch on his Penton motorcycle circa 1976.
Did you know Hunter actually had his ashes packed in shells and blown into the sky from 150 feet up at his funeral? Fun fact of the day.

Ladies (and gay men) rejoice! Ryan Gosling is coming out with a new movie March 29th called The Place Beyond the Pines. Apparently he does all his own stunts, which include riding the piss out of a motorcycle. From the trailer, it’s looking like this film could turn out to be pretty impressive (and I’m very unimpressed by movies these days). 

Regardless of Gosling- this is a crime drama with a bunch of motorcycles and a seemingly good storyline. I’m stoked.

From the (terrible, maybe awesome) movie Torque. 

Apparently Brazilian model Lisalla Montenegro can ride a motorcycle. She tried out the [somewhat controversial] women’s Vika two piece suit by Alpinestars. I will say, it looks nice… on a models body. 

Someone with a more normal shape… try this gear and let me know what you think!
