Animating the Edge

Dailies -



The edge, that mystical feeling that moves your soul while riding a motorcycle. Hunter S. Thompson, a name synonymous with motorcycles, wrote about the edge in his book “Hell’s Angels: The Strange and Terrible Sage of the Outlaw Motorcycle Gangs.”This animated video excerpts HST talking about the edge from the documentary “Gonzo: The Life and Work Dr. Hunter S. Thompson.” This video was made by Piotr Kabat using a voiceover by Jonny Depp.

    Love the little oil drip.

    Weird to think Johnny 21 Jump Street Depp became close friends with HST, though they were from very different generations.

    Just remember while riding in “Bat Country” a helmet is always recommended!

    The whole book, especially the final chapter is a must-read for any self-respecting bike-ist.

    I gave a copy of this book to CeeCee Motors in Portland a year or so back. It’s a great read.
