Zadig Motorcyles Salander
It certainly looks like a death trap – but aren’t the best motorcycles just a little bit frightening?
And is the Salander – a build from Belgian workshop Zadig something to ride hard, or simply look at?
We’d personally swing a leg over the beast – and we certainly approve of the style and the attitude of the Zadig aesthetic.
The whole thing, though, does make us think of the timely question – what should motorcycles be?
Are they simply objects of meditation – things to gaze at, to tinker with and to contemplate? Or are they purposeful magic carpets; literal vehicles of transcendence that can take you places – aesthetically, spiritually – as well as simply down to the shops.
Either way – we applaud the makers of these things.
And are envious of the ability to have one in one’s life!
