It was great to invest some time in one of those projects we left behind some time ago. Building season this year was crazy… (Baula, Chupito, Gonzo, Trimotoro, Pop Cycles…!@#), and made us realize we needed some rest in order to stay true & keep inspired. After the exhaustion of last season, felt lacking the stamina necessary to fuel the perfect symbiosis between brain, body & machine. Now, five months later, we feel the new energy flowing back, thriving us into a psychological state of peace that supports the creative mindset we need to keep pushing the boundaries.

This will probably be the last post of the year, a year we squeezed till the last drop. Looking back, we find that 2012 was a year of extreme emotional charge for us. We have experienced extreme measures of anxiety, hysteria & content for taking so many risks in these convulsed times, but we have also been captivated by a supreme passion, courage & joy for doing what we love most without being distracted by anything else…and we have SURVIVED!

Wish you all a beautiful 2013.
Live it to the fullest as if it was your last! There is nothing more.

  3. Great, just great! I am planning to buy my first motorcycle soon, so I am seeking an inspirational photos. Beautiful bikes, especially Gonzo, Chupito, El Solitario, Meatball and La Sal del Diablo. I am also wondering, what model of camera did you used to making these photos?

  4. Vaya maravílla, ese chasis más plano y esa nueva perspectiva de conducción permite más juego que el de mi malvendida/maltrecha Moster “pompone” del 95’… wuaggg …. pide una larga cruzada en una curva con arena fina, pide sentarse en ella y notar que si apretas el puño vas a sonreir como un pequeñete… sin malícia… pero como un Jocker con pedegree… Preciosa.
