Although with scant regard for the banality of much in popular culture, El Solitario`s approach to music isn’t rooted in intellectual superiority but leaves a door ajar into a psychedelic, esoteric, sometimes challenging world. Making us junkies for new soundscapes. Our musical inclinations are often the result of a near-mythological desire for complete independence, better-ly (does this word even exist?) defined by the roads we chose not to take than the mountains we repeatedly conquered.
Unlike the Dakar, which has evolved into a loop rally with zero geographical interest, the Morocco Desert Challenge offers a “coast to coast” adventure. In eight stages the participants cross a maximum part of Morocco, along the Algerian border, as far away as possible from the tourist zones. The participants therefore do not sleep in hotels, but in beautiful, self-built desert bivouacs.
Good motorcycle events are almost extinct these days, and if you find one, every glittering ounce of them should be cherished and hoarded and worshipped and fondled like a priceless diamond. Last weekend, England´s Grimsthorpe Castle witnessed the celebration of the Malle Mile (One of the last surviving ones!) and the revival of ESMC´s ludicrous race "La Copita”.
In the common law of England, a "Writ of Outlawry" made the pronouncement Caput lupinum - "Let his be a wolf's head” - with respect to its subject, equating that person with a wolf in the eyes of the law. The Outlaw was deprived of all legal rights, allowing others to kill him on sight, as if he was such a wild creature.
Next Full Moon we will launch one of the wildest endeavors of the Wolf family. A dream that has taken years to become a reality. El Solitario Outlaw Whisky Collection (E.S.O.W.C.), will soon have a place of its own in our ecosystem, and we are ecstatic to finally be able to get closer to all of you, bringing to your door the true spirit of El Solitario. What is more intimate than sharing a good bottle of liquid gold around the fire?E.S.O.W.C. will strive to find the most authentic distilleries around the world and bring to light those whiskys that personify the ethos of El Solitario. We will bottle in limited editions, those spirits that for any given practicalities or any other obscure reason, never saw the light, although reveal an exceptional taste and ‘garra’.Stay tuned.
KISS is an acronym for keep it simple stupid. A design principle noted by the U.S. Navy in 1960, stating that most systems work best if they are kept simple rather than made complicated; therefore, simplicity should be a key goal in design, and unnecessary complexity should be avoided.
What unites Sebago and El Solitario MC is a clear focus on exceptional quality and meticulous attention to detail. Two seemingly opposing worlds, driven by a common desire to harness their outstanding craftsmanship to make their visions a reality.
Sunday´s full Moon will be very special. The first supermoon* of the year, it will also be the only total lunar eclipse** of 2022. In other words, this Sunday we will witness an incredible SUPER BLOOD MOON ECLIPSE which, if your weather favours you, it will be a beautiful thing to enjoy.
It was this mix of emotions and thoughts, together with a never ending desire to push the boundaries and go off on an adventure with rad pals, that lit the bulb for me. Why not take some electric offroad motorcycles on an overland unauthorised adventure? That’s right, unauthorised…because of the official absurdity of the idea, its unlikeliness of smooth success, and because we aren’t gonna ask any permits to ride. Unauthorised because the Cosmo (well…the technology) didn’t give the all safe and tested green light yet. Care not. We’ll pass the red light and ignore today’s paranoid system where everything must be carefully planned, controlled and safe. Screw that. It’s a gamble, sure, but what better way to electrify a life so badly sedated and alienated by the Covid craze?!
