Austin, We Have Lift Off...

We were bestowed an immensely rare opportunity by our partners at Rizoma USA to visit the LCR Honda garage at MotoGP’s Grand Prix of The Americas in Austin, Texas, last month. The surgical precision with which these crews put together bikes and fly them around the track is an awesome spectacle, standing in stark contrasts to the rougher around the edges, handcrafted aesthetics of the custom world we inhabit. From the plugged-in computer driven fueling protocols on the race bikes to the blinking light adorned, air bag equipped racing suits, you got the feeling that these motorcycles and their pilots could make the trip to outer space. Rizoma has been a fantastic partner to us at Deus Ex Machina, providing us with scores of their technologically and aesthetically sophisticated products. We’d like to extend a very special thank you to James Eiland at Rizoma USA for showing us a glimpse into the realm of motorcycle building of the highest order.
