I was brought up surrounded by the smell of oil and steel and the sound of machinery. I think thats why this life suits me well. I have images but I'm not inspired by any particular thing. I don't draw either. I cut steel or bend aluminum listening to how I feel at that moment. I use my hands and break my back. I believe that speaks to people's emotions and makes them want one. A bike should look good on it's own but it's incomplete until a person rides it. For me a motorcycle is more than art. It's something that brings out my instincts the wildness and vulnerability in me..
