LOWSIDE Magazine Issue 1
68 pages - From Tim, the editor: "Everything is so accessible these days, with the internet and mass media combined there is no hunt involved. If you want to know everything there is to know about Richard Hell, you can just Wikipedia it and you're an expert. This is pretty much true for just about anything, you can read it then know it in a few clicks of your mouse. But there are a few things that still remain inaccessible. For example; of course you can go on YouTube and watch a guy set the points on his iron head. But can you truly understand how to set your points if you haven't done it on the side of 95 in the dark with a pocket knife and a business card? No, not at all, the understanding is completely different. This is where we set ourselves apart from the masses. We can't just pick a bike or a car from the showroom floor and be content with it. We are tinkerers, artists, craftsman and maniacs. Having something everyone else has never suited us and it never will. Why would anyone sit in an 11x17 shed in 10 degree weather just to make a rusty old bike run? Because pushing a button on a new geezer glide doesn't give any feeling of achievement. For anyone who has ever kick started a bike you will understand this feeling. There is so much to be said about bringing a machine to life by the downward kicking motion of one's leg. LowSide magazine has one goal in mind; relating this feeling to others who can empathize with our sore knees, hurting backs from laying on cold floors and busted knuckles. We chose a separate path and low side magazine is simply here to document that path with photographs and articles taken and written by people like you and me."

Living The Life book
Living The Life
180 Pages. 9" x 9", limited edition hardcover.
"Classic images of bikers from the 70's and earlier are a hit among today's discriminating enthusiasts. And it's not just a case of looking back through rose colored glasses to motorcycling's past. Rather it is the natural consequence when popular culture celebrates cartoonish exaggerations, and shuns the genuine. Doug Barber's photos remind us of a time when the bikes, and the people that rode them were the real deal. Thankfully, Doug was there living it; not just as an observer from the outside. This collection of images combined with the words of Sorez the Scribe provides a unique glimpse into our cultureís past. For those that lived, partied and rode during that time itís a memory book of sorts. For the new generation it represents the path less chosen, inspiration, and a history book of our two- wheeled forefathers. Living the life, it's good for your soul." Todd Ingram (Editorial Director - Iron Horse Magazine)
PRICE: AU$65 each, INCLUDES shipping {Australia only}.
