I love motorcycles There, I said it. When I graduate college in a couple of months, I promised myself two things: I promised my mother that I would get a bigger flat (apartment) and for myself, a motorcycle. That’s right, you heard correct a motorcycle. Ever since I was a teenager and I watched Easy Rider on VHS, DVD was not around at that time, motorcycles have always had a powerful influence over me.

He has been romanticized in books and novels as well as idealized in movies such as The Wild One and Easy Rider and documented in the paintings by the late artist Dave Mann. The outlaw biker is a symbol of American freedom and hippie ideals of the counterculture movement of this country. A modern day cowboy , a two-faced individual giving…Continue
