Two Wheeled Tomorrow

BY MATTHEW ROBERTS
@ PECHAKUCHA NIGHT SPECIAL X MINI @ BMW GROUP TOKYO BAY ON JUL 20, 2016

"There aren't many things that have survived this sanitization and overly safety focused modern life like the motorcycle has."

In Two Wheeled Tomorrow from PechaKucha Night Special x MINI @ BMW Group Tokyo Bay, Matthew Roberts makes the case that raw, gritty, internal-combusting motorcycles are here to stay. Roberts argues that custom motorcycles are one of the last outlets for the human desire to be daring and adventurous.
