Photographers : True Bike Spirit
Shooting motorcycles is one thing, shoot it with passion and share it with love is another. True Biker Spirit is a motorcycle photography company created by Fred Pauwels, Sébastien Nunes and Jonathan Girvan that combines great shots and great encounters with the core values of motorcycling. They know how to catch a moment and love to share their work, but also their inspirations, through their blog. And cherry on the cake, TBS has also a digital motorcycle magazine, film projects in the pipe, are Belgian, always ready for a ride and you can meet them every Friday at the Belgaz.
Stay True (like they say).

Photographer : Dirk Behlau aka “The Pixeleye”
Dirk Behlau is an internationally acclaimed photographer, designer & filmmaker from Germany.
Dirk is known for his ‘Kool Lifestyle’ photography: american cars from the 30´s till 70´s, classic glamorous pin-ups, rockstars and uncommon people with attitude.
So I was pleasantly surprised to discover his new shoots. Still very (very) colorful, maybe more peaceful and shoots from a different perspective during great events.
Discover some photos from the Classic 24H du Mans, La Carrera Panamericana, Mint 400 (The great American desert race) and Drag Racing.

Photographer : Laurent Nivalle
Classic motorcycle or car photographers; they exist in all kind of colours and shapes. But when you stay 10 minutes to analyse each picture and say to yourself how beautiful they are, you know you knocked on the right door.
Laurent Nivalle is one of these photographers who can catch a small moment of peace in this hard driving world with loud engines and smoking rubber.

Steve McQueen: Unpublished Photos of the King of Cool
“In the spring of 1963, Steve McQueen was on the brink of superstardom, already popular from his big-screen breakout as one of The Magnificent Seven and just a couple months away from entering the Badass Hall of Fame with the release of The Great Escape.
Intrigued by his dramatic backstory and his off-screen exploits — McQueen was a reformed delinquent who got his thrills racing cars and motorcycles — LIFE sent the great photographer John Dominis to California to hang out with the 33-year-old actor and, in effect, see what he could get.
Three weeks and more than 40 rolls of film later, Dominis had captured some astonishingly intimate and now-iconic images — photos impossible to imagine in today’s utterly restricted-access celebrity universe. Only a handful of those photos were ever published. Here, LIFE.com presents a series of previously unpublished gems from what Dominis would look back on as one of his favorite assignments, along with insights about the time he spent with the man who would soon don the mantle, ‘the King of Cool.’”

Yamaha XS650 - Ze Last Chance Garage
“The bike is heavily modified, with the most visible change being a tank from a 1970s Yamaha DT360 enduro motorcycle. The two-into-one exhaust is from Gordon Scott Engineering, with a go-kart style spring bracket added by Seb.
The electric start has been removed to save weight and Mikuni VM34 Roundslide carbs fitted to add power. Keeping the motor cool are a large capacity external oil filter and high performance oil pump from Heiden Tuning.”
