motorbikes

dudes on bikes

i totally fall for the stereotype of a certain type of man on a motorbike (and i’m talking a certain kind of motorbike, too) denim, leather, boots, scruffy facial hair -  i mean really. badass.

all images courtesy of the always wonderful the selvedge yard. if you wish to peruse more motorbikes and the cool dudes who ride them, and other awesome vintage stories & imagery – do pay it a visit.

oh, this pic isn’t from TSY – but i had to include it, as it was the only good part of that shitty movie and made me go ooooooh for brad like i was 12 years old again.

i would also like to petition that don draper appears on a motorbike at some point in mad men season 5. yes?

the smell of ad-venture

i caught an old jonathon ross interview of ewan mcgregor this weekend (swoon), but was astounded to see that he had attached his name to a manly man fragrance – and actually went as far as making this ridiculously cheesy advert for it:

now, i love ewan mcgregor and i love bikers & people who go on adventures AND i love men who smell nice and wear leather jackets, but…. come on! super cheese. though i must admit i watched the ad a couple of times (i’m only a woman)

ewan-davidoff

he does look pretty cool though, eh? yes the scarf is a bit gay… plus, what kind of biker wears cologne?

anyway, invariably i found this, which made me feel better:

the scent of adventure in the air…. haha.

choppers

deep throat choppers

i’m been watching too much orange country choppers on discovery,  but bikers usually have pretty good beards – which i appreciate.
