Some of the best artists in the world frequently talk about transcendental states of consciousness. These states often lead them to create some of their finest work.

This is a film about stepping into yourself through doing something you love. A direct access into the divine. It is about finding that thing in life that will take you to that intangible place, and once found, discovering your truest abilities. It is about creating that bridge from artist to athlete, athlete to artist. It requires a relationship between your state of being, and the thing that you love to do. When you are operating at your highest self, it will translate into your craft, and in return, your craft will take you even further towards the divine. But it starts with you. The motorcycle is just a tool to help you get there. That’s why we ride.
