Buckle up, We're Riding With The Wind and Mastom

Friday night the 21st Feb the weather gods conspired to make it more than a bit of a miserable night. The fact the Deus Gallery at Bali's Deus Temple of Enthusiasm wasn't wall to wall with people wanting to see clever, fun and visually stunning art can be placed squarely on their shoulders. That meant one thing though, there was more of the free flow wine, beer, and cider for...

Shop Visit from Cobalt Automobiles

Can you tell us a bit about yourself and your work? Well, I started restoring cars when I was 17 years old. Cars, like skateboarding, were my thing ever since I was little, even if this was not the case for the rest of my family. I ended up repairing and reselling cars all by myself, to make a living from my passion. Then, this activity ended up overtaking my...

BACK TO BROMO

2,000 meters above sea level there exists a volcano that last erupted only a few short years ago. It’s awe inspiring intensity is best experienced first hand; looking straight up from the centre of a crater, that over millions of years has been blown apart from within. For us though, it’s a playground best enjoyed on two wheels. The ashen dunes have become a yearly pilgrimage for the Deus Temple...

Day in the Dirt 22

Thanksgiving is a big holiday in the US. It consists of gathering friends and family and eating large amounts of food and drink. Usually the most dangerous activity is letting Uncle Tony and Cousin Jenny have a few drinks and start arguing politics. It gets loud and competitive real quick. And the weekend after Thanksgiving gets even more loud and competitive at Day in the Dirt. This was the 22nd...

Surf now, buy later - Deus Manly

"Menyebar luaskan pesan kedamaian lewat karya seni." "Spread the message of peace through art."

Costa Rica

The trip didn't start with me sliding meters on a gravely road upside down into a ditch, but this story does. The inevitable and unfortunate merging of an evening glare, swarms of gnats, recently placed gravel, a sharp turn that I didn’t make, and the poor front end of a recently rebuilt RX400 happened ... and it happened in a rather painful way. The front end and rotor were mangled....

BLU RUVIDO - Woolie's Yamaha YZF450FX

The DEUS Swank Rally was started two years ago as an idea that encapsulated the beauty of old motorcycles, enduro style off-road courses and the ignorance of the inappropriate.

Yamaha has stepped up as the title sponsor of the Deus Swank Rally and donated a 2019 YZF450FX to the cause. Woolie loved the...

Dino Tune Drop Out

A film by Laurent Nivalle Old passions are the strongest… Around Santa Barbara in the 60s, Richard Vincent stockpiles the motorcycle races. He runs, he wins, on his fearsome Velocette, developed by himself. But sometimes, life goes sideways. It hurts the most vigorous and delicate passions, the taste of sport, the desire to live. We hang up the gloves, the helmet, it seems that time will bury everything. Yet, there...

DEUS SLIDETOBERFEST 2019 - The Canggu Flat Track

Undoubtedly the funnest way to finish the activity side of the Deus Slidetoberfest long weekend has to be whizzing around in circles out front of the Deus Temple of Enthusiasm on our own little Flat Track.
