Countless rolls of film, piles of SD cards, backup drives, and cloud storages. Roadside fixes, sunburns and more miles splitting lanes than we can count.
The amount of time and effort that goes into each issue of our magazine would seem like a full-time job to most. Let alone ten issues! But one thing we have done right from the very beginning of this venture was to keep our content limited to what we do and experience on the daily anyway. By documenting our travels and two-wheel adventures rather than working hard to drum up content for each issue, we have allowed ourselves to keep this whole thing fun and exciting. Each issue has something new. It’s an ever-changing canvas that nearly paints itself every time.
Ten issues is a milestone for us here at Basket Case Magazine. With all the hubbub about “print being dead,” we beg to differ. We are just getting warmed up.
Issue X starts off with a first-hand account feature of Southern California’s “Chopper Fest” by none other than Jason Wilson from Sacred Steel. Jason and his pals take our readers on a tour of the urinal stalls and behind the scenes gloryholes. In between the DLMC shenanigans be sure to drool over the images presented by Lisa Ballard, Enrique Parrilla, and our very own Holly Anderson. the Chopper Fest is always a badass show.
Next up is our artist feature. This issue we are very proud to bring you the artwork of Russell “MOW” Murchie hailing from Melbourne, AUS. This guys artwork speaks for itself. However, our pal Joey Dodd did the interview honors for us and helped shed some light on the man behind the ink.
We are very excited to be able to showcase another up and coming artist this issue. Please give a warm welcome to Mr. Rob Hudnut, otherwise known as CYCLE MONSTER!!! This dude has been killing the “how-to” art lately. Make sure you chop every sportser you ever come across using his detailed step by step process on hardtailing that 883/1200.
One of my personal favorite things about this magazine has been shining the spotlight on those who have been grinding away in the shadows. Issue X bike/model feature is Bill “OZ’ Walker and his lovely lady, Nagi Walker. A power couple with a passion for well-built mile crunching choppers and leather goods. You will not be disappointed!
Smooth, handsome and cool as ice. He isn’t new to the game, but if you’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting him, I am certain we can agree that you left feeling better about yourself. Some people just have the ability to leave a lasting impression on you; he certainly has done so for me. We are very excited to bring to BCM some glimpses from behind his lens. Issue X photographer feature is none other than Shane Markland.
How about a bonus event feature?! So many events are happening lately that we couldn’t stop ourselves. Jay Fortin took advantage of the Winter Moto Expo and put together some badass photos for us to drool over. Them East coast boys know how to party!
What happens when you mashup punk rock, choppers, skateboarding and a whole lot of DGAF. Say hello to the SCODES. We’ve spotted these dudes lurking behind the scenes at many events and swap meets lately and wanted to give them the chance to lay it all out there for you to see. Take a ride with us down memory lane with a group of dudes that are still holding strong. Punk rock forever, forever punk rock.
