Before I bought my first motorcycle, I would surf the internet and just look at bikes. I found a lot of cool motorcycle blogs this way. One of the ones that I loved was called The Machine Files. Not long after I found this blog I bought my first bike with the intent of customizing the crap out of it. I didn't do much to my own bike, but I always wanted to learn.
There was a video on there that simply blew me away. I loved the philosophy, the hard work, and the bikes themselves. Today, as I was browsing around the internet. I randomly decided to check out that site. I knew it hadn't been updated in a long time, but I thought I'd look anyway. To my pleasant surprise it seems that Matt Machine, may be getting back in the game of showing off his awesome work.
I don't have much to go on, and I didn't know much about the guy that runs this blog before. All I can say is that there's a new post on the blog.
It says simply, "Am I back? ... not actually sure, i'd like to be, but I've been here before and couldn't do it. I'll have a go and see what happens."
I don't know what that means, but If he starts posting stuff regularly. I'll start checking it out regularly. His bikes are always awesome, and I'm looking forward to seeing more.
I've embedded the video that first turned me on to this guy below. It's been six years since it first went up, so chances are you may have seen it floating around the web, but its worth the watch. It's visually awesome, and the music and monologue are great. I've watched it many times and still find it seriously enjoyable.
