MOTO FILM – Steve McQueen’s First Husky

Posted on May 13, 2019 by Scott in Desert Sled, Video. No Comments

Before Steve McQueen starred in the cult classic film, On Any Sunday, riding his 1970 Husqvarna 400 Cross, there was another Husky that had started his obsession with the Swedish motorcycle brand. That bike was a 1969 Husqvarna Viking 360cc that Steve had bought off world champion Swedish rider, Bengt Aberg, after watching him win a race on it in Santa Cruz. This great little film by Petrolicious explores the story of the “King of Cool’s” first Husky, the history of this incredibly rare machine and where it has ultimately ended up. We love the fact that the owners of this bike, Blacksmith Garage, still make sure this “quarter of a million dollar” two-stroke is ridden and not just sitting as a piece of art in someone’s living room.

Moto films of the week

Posted on May 5, 2019 by Scott in Adventure, Classic, Interview, Video. No Comments

Yesterday was International Female Ride Day, so we thought it would be fitting to start by showcasing some inspirational females who have all made an impact on the motorcycle industry in their own way. First up we have the legendary Jolene Van Vugt, who is the first woman to backflip a full-sized dirt bike. She is also the holder of many Guinness World Records, and was a regular on the hugely successful Nitro Circus. She is now a stunt woman and Indian Motorcycles sponsored rider, who has definitely helped pave the way for the next generation of female riders.

MOTO FILMS of the week

Indian Motorcycles – Racing Forward
They say your true character comes out after you go through the toughest time of your life. This inspiring video of Brad ‘The Bullet’ Baker shows just how strong and determined this flat track legend is. Brad’s world was turned upside down after a “stupid little crash” at the X-Games last year. The film shows how he is moving forward after the accident with the help of his friends, supporters and sponsors. His experience and never-give-up attitude has become an invaluable asset to the Indian Motorcycle team. So much respect for this young man who was at the top of his game and is now learning to do everything from scratch again.
