After two years of production “It’s Better in the Wind” has been edited together and is now available for your viewing pleasure. A short film all about guys out on the road enjoying the two wheeled lifestyle of wrench, ride and repeat. Photographer Scott Toepfer’s film was funded through the sale of his “Better in the Wind” book and we can only hope this film will make it much easier for him to find funding for many more. Here’s what Scott has to say about the project…

For the last two years I (Scott) have been taking still photographs for a personal project entitled ‘It’s Better In The Wind,’ all the while collecting video footage from each ride as we traveled around the Western United States together.


I have been slowly editing the footage into a visual scrapbook of sorts for those who partook, and those who followed us via the web. No preaching the triumphs and failures of the motorcycle industry, no divisive commentary between manufacturers and styles…just a collection of imagery that will hopefully inspire more people to take to the road and discover what there is outside of our respective communities.


Chuck Ragan was kind enough to collaborate with me to write an original soundtrack for the film, to give me some anthemic tunes to edit with, and I can’t thank him enough for the kind gesture towards a fellow traveler.


Please, enjoy the film, everybody who took part in it is family, we are all grateful for your support these past two years while we tried to build a concept around the positive nature of motorcycling.”
