Motorcycle Body Paint, Turning Humans in Motorcycles

YouMotorcycle follows some very cool motorcyclists on Twitter. Twitter is a great way of finding out what’s new and exciting in your field of interest.



When we think about it, motorcycles and the performing arts don’t always go hand in hand. Something about running a motorcycle on a stage for too long killing dancers. Imagine my surprise when the most interesting motorcycle-related tweet I came across in the YouMotorcycle Twitter feed was from @Gabby_DB, the city of Toronto’s top professional contortionist, and a non-motorcyclist (boo! hiss!).

She tweeted a post from Fstoppers, a video blog. The Progressive International Motorcycle show needed some promotional material. They teamed up with i.d.e.a. and with the help of performers and body paint artists began transforming humans into motorcycles.

The “Behind The Scenes – Human Motorcycles” video explains it all and shows just what an amazing job everyone from artist to performers were doing and the work that went into the project.
