Not really TV, it is more than what you have received from television.  Stories of Bike is a web series that dives into the hearts of most of us that love motorcycles. If you “feel” motorcycles, and if you are reading a little nothing blog like this you likely do, you will get what they are giving you and want more!  From my point of view it is a version of “Why we ride” but done in a love affair with people documented.

To describe this series of short films (films because I think they are better than web TV) is a bit difficult so I will let the creator Cam Elkins:

“About a builder, working with his hands and why he or she builds and rides the bikes they do. I could never find a video that went further back than that. I wanted to hear their story that got them there.

Not just builders, but every day riders and their bikes. Their histories, their dreams, challenges, loves and losses. I wanted to see these stories and how riding a bike makes it all better.”

What brought the series to my attention was their first episode Answers. Answers is about a man taking a solo world trip on a 1969 Royal Enfield Bullet 350. As much as I love RE, not something I would do 🙂

The video series have won, deservingly, multiple awards for editing, cinematography and best documentary.  I can’t recommend this enough.  Season two is coming soon so please take the time to watch their product, it will be worth your time.   After you watch the YouTube video above go to their website and check out the rest of the series. 5 out of 5 stars!
