For the last two years I have been taking still photographs for a personal project entitled 'It's Better In The Wind,' all the while collecting video footage from each ride as we traveled around the Western United States together.
I have been slowly editing the footage into a visual scrapbook of sorts for those who partook, and those who followed us via the web. No preaching the triumphs and failures of the motorcycle industry, no divisive commentary between manufacturers and styles...just a collection of imagery that will hopefully inspire more people to take to the road and discover what there is outside of our respective communities.
Chuck Ragan was kind enough to collaborate with me to write an original soundtrack for the film, to give me some anthemic tunes to edit with, and I can't thank him enough for the kind gesture towards a fellow traveler.
Please, enjoy the film, everybody who took part in it is family, we are all grateful for your support these past two years while we tried to build a concept around the positive nature of motorcycling.

Title: Little Red Rooster
In June 2012 our crew from Wrenchmonkees went across Europe to test our own Nordic Work Wear tailored by Kansas. Driving, wrenching and sleeping in our own garments for 10 days proved for us what works and what doesn´t. This is how it went…
We build motorcycles and we ride them. Motorcycles shape our lives. Since 2008 we have been building custom motorcycles for committed souls in most parts of the world. We love the spirit of old Japanese, British, Italian and American motorcycles. We create simple but distinctive motorcycles with an attitude. As well as in
bikes we also believe in clothing based on simple fundamentals that relate to our work life in the garage, driving bikes and our everyday life in Copenhagen. For a long time we have felt an urge to create our own clothes. Clothing that fit our desires and needs in the garage and on the road.
The WM A.C Nordic Workwear edition is created in collaboration with KANSAS, who has been a long-standing Danish workwear manufacturer since 1952. We respect KANSAS as a genuine label that crafted the work clothes of our fathers with pride and superior garment quality. Today we collaborate with KANSAS to craft the
best long lasting garage wear for our generation.
