On Any Sunday, The Great Escape and The Wild One. These are the highbrow motorcycling movies that we all name-drop as being one of the reasons we got into motorcycling in the first place.

When you’re a kid everything seems big, adults appear to be giants and a semi-trailer truck may as well be a Transformer. Even the childhood home feels like a castle until one day you return as an adult and realise it’s just a regular old three bedroom house. So too the bikes of our youth…

THE WIZARD OF OZZ. A Ducati ST4S Cafe Fighter By Ozz Customs
