Escape

It's that time of year again.  Dreams of escape surround me.  If I left right now I could get in and out of Tuktoyaktuk on Canada's north shore before the snows arrive (just).  I might have to bomb up there in a van just to get out in time, but…

Triumph Tiger 955i Graphic Ideas

The old 955i Tiger is now a long ago thing in Triumph's lineup, but mine is still going strong.  I dug up an old print I made of a tiger face and digitized it before playing with skins on the 955i logo... I might monkey around with producing a custom…

Saints & Sinners Long Distance Motorcycle Rally
