Sexiest Harley-Davidson Print Magazine Ad

In my own judgment, Harley-Davidson has produced via local country advertising agencies, very good and very bad commercials. At least, each campaign is adapted to the specifics of each culture. Here is a Harley print magazine ad that probably could never have been run in the US, but only in a country where sensuality is exemplified […]

New 2010 Triumph Thruxton Special Edition.

As British and  Cafe Racer as it can be in a new 2010 model, I like very much this Thruxton Special Edition. Must be European nostalgia… All manufacturer models sold as limited or special edition have always something in common. Something special about the motor and the paint scheme. In this case the fuel injected 865cc parallel […]
