Motorcycles and coffee are two items that appear on my list of things that I can’t live without, which is rather fortunate. Through my observations, motorcyclists spend a great deal of time in and around cafes, just like musicians seem to spend a lot of time in and around bars. The never-ending search for the perfect road will always feature a visit to a cafe. This gravitation towards places to get a caffeine recharge and to meet with fellow riders is exactly how the term ‘Café Racer’ came about. The undeniable connection between cafes and riders became the inspiration for this bike, the aptly named BAR!STA.
