Title: Motorcycle Photography: An Art Form
Post by: michnus on September 19, 2012, 10:21:58 pm

What is art? To most people it’s a painting in a museum, a sculpture in an art gallery, or even a dramatic independent film that changed the way they think about life. By definition Art is the quality, production, expression, or realm, according to aesthetic principles, of what is beautiful, appealing, or of more than ordinary significance. So technically anything that’s beautiful or appealing can be art.
 
Well in my opinion motorcycles are an art form all in there own. From the smooth lines of the frame, all the way to the winding curves of the pipes and tank. Even the gas cap, can be a focal point of a bike. Designers can spend years sculpting raw metal into one off beautiful concepts that defy all standards. Now it’s one thing to create this art, but it’s another thing to capture it in it’s natural environment…the open road! So I’ve compiled a list of the best Motorcycle Photography on the interwebs. Some of these are from commercial ads, others are private, but all are beautiful. Check it out!

"Indian Larry" - Bike Builder from NY - passed away after he fell performing this stunt in a parking lot - no helmet - hit his head and passed away in hospital - late 2004? They covered it on "Biker Build-off" a couple of years ago.....

I love the photos you posted - a couple of favourites of mine are the BMW cafe racer - I love the vibrancy and the symmetry of the photo.

Also these two:
