Bikers of the Badlands

  • The most satisfying part about this series are the pictures of the bikers riding, that I took out of the window of the car. Since we were going about 60-70mph, I never got to see what they actually looked like until after I took the picture.
     
    The bikers around this area have a culture I had never experienced before.  They speed across long, flat stretches of road,  between  towns entirely devoted to their lifestyle. My favorite is that they have everything they need strapped on to the back of their bike, and it seems they have managed to streamline their whole existance to maximise their mobility. They're bikes have become their home, and they are free to move any way they choose.
     
    For me, the bikers represented the ultimate sense of freedom.
