The Ride book explores motorcycle riding as it is meant to be: as a means of getting around with attitude, as an extension of one’s own body, as an expression of personal freedom, but also as a significant challenge to technical expertise, craftsmanship, physics, discipline, and driving skill. The Ride features transformations such as a boring plastic motorcycle made in Japan in the 1990s turned into a slick café racer with an Italian feel, a soulless neo-baroque machine turned into an in-your-face scrambler, or an old find from grandpa’s barn turned into a absolutely comfort-free hardtail with the coolest of sounds.
Featuring extensive profiles of pioneers including Walt Siegl, Wrenchmonkees, DP Customs, Deus, Shinya Kimura, and Uwe Ehinger. Editor Chris Hunter runs the motorcycle website Bike EXIF, the world's most popular showcase of custom bikes, with millions of pageviews every month and a passionate global following. Hunter has traded the bright lights of London and Sydney for the solitude of rural New Zealand, where the lack of decent broadband is made up for by magnificent riding roads.
