deus ex machina

Red, White and Blue

 Recent Petrolette Tara Henry was encouraged into Dirt by her friends at the Deus Ex Machina in Venice, CA so a lot of her gear and bikes are from within the same crew. Deus and Ornamental Conifer collaborated on this light weight cotton shirt with dirt-track intentions called the OC/D Moto worn over her armour and tucked into her Troy Lee Designs GP Air Pants.

TARA: Leaving a Trail

The road to pursuing the stuff that makes us happy, for some, seems to come fraught with fear of failure which is why so many of us stay where we are… comfortable, secure, bored. Meeting Tara was utterly refreshing, even while recovering from injuries she incurred at Dirt Quake recently, she was still smiling, passionate and sharp. Tara just goes for it, makes no excuses and doesn’t let any hype threaten the joy she gains from dirt and trail riding.

Baby Wants to Ride

While I admit this writer has been only been riding a motorcycle for a couple of years, was not born wearing motorcycle boots, and pre-riding, my knowledge of mechanics extended to ‘key turns on, key turns off’. Ironically, I'm is in a good position to dispense some tips on what to look for when buying your first motorcycle, coupled with advice from Deus Ex Machina Workshop Manager and Head Technician (and super nice guy) Jeremy Tagand.
