I can't really remember another bike in the past 5 years that has created as much media stir as the Husqvarna Vitpilen 701. From the initial concepts to the final production machine there has always glowing praise for the Swedish …Even though it seems like a lifetime ago since these concepts were first released, seeing these bike in the flesh still still manage to bring out that initial excitement.
Yesterday marked another edition of the Distinguished Gentleman's Ride 2015 Brisbane Edition. This was only the second one that I have attended with the first one being four years ago, and wow has it grown! With over 300 registered riders …I mean what's not to love about it, you get the rare opportunity to don a suit, and combine that with any excuse to talk and check out bikes it's a sure fire winner.
Anyone that has any interest in the custom scene has heard of or come across a bike that has been built by Wrench Monkees. They are synonymous with the new cafe racer movement and have been one of the few …Their early bikes especially the club black series were some of my favourites and were so brooding that my voice got a little deeper just by looking at them.
