The difference between a criminal and an outlaw is that while criminals frequently are victims, outlaws never are. Indeed, the first step toward becoming a true outlaw is the refusal to be victimized. All people who live subject to other people’s laws are victims. People who break laws out of greed, frustration, or vengeance are victims. People who overturn laws in order to replace them with their own laws are victims. ( I am speaking here of revolutionaries.) We outlaws, however, live beyond the law. We don’t merely live beyond the letter of the law – many businessmen, most politicians, and all cops do that – we live beyond the spirit of the law. In a sense, then, we live beyond society. Have we a common goal, that goal is to turn the tables on the ‘nature’ of society. When we succeed, we raise the exhilaration content of the universe. We even raise it a little bit when we fail.

As you know the death of Wheels and Waves left a huge gap in the wolves calendar and the freedom to make some mischief. This void, united to the reigning feeling around us, that we needed – now more than ever – to celebrate together this Summer Solstice set the perfect ground for our own adventure to be born.

El Solitario  O U T L A W S  is a story about long lasting friendships. Not just between riders, but between designers, makers and storytellers, collaborating freely on one common goal – adventure. The nucleus is a motorcycle expedition across the Iberian peninsula. A think tank on the move, we will gather all these free spirits and immerse them into an OFF ROAD + OFF THE GRID adventure to excite and challenge their passion and survival instincts. For seven days we will storm the hell out of our machines across two of the most beautiful countries in Europe. Riding all day and drinking whisky under the stars at night. Together we aim to keep the fire alive and excite our creative ethos like we’ve been doing all these years in Wheels & Waves, although this time communication will be more direct without the interference of commercialism

In the era of void consumerism and escalating surveillance of individual liberties by government agencies and corporations, every night around the campfire we will ask our beaten up riders two questions: What drives them and how they are shaping their lives to fit their ideals? We will come back to you with the conclusions, which surely will  inspire all of us and enlighten our paths to become can openers in the supermarket of life.

  1. … looking forward – very good idea – wish i could take part with this – missed Pico, Alberto, David&Gang the last two years …. keep on – Gunther

    1. If I may [ apologies but I’m in ‘ teaching mode this morning ] … ‘ looking forward was the correct response .. though in truth looking ahead is still somewhat acceptable .

      Rock On !

  2. Welcome to the Ayn Rand influenced dystopian reality of Hyper verging on Anarcho Capitalism .. where greed is god ( read ” Mean Girl ” by Lisa Duggan ” ) and ” The Age of Surveillance Capitalism ” ( by Shoshana Zuboff .. READ THIS BOOK ) is the new norm

    If I may though .. a bit of a pedantic . semantic , philosophical , ethical [ and just a touch of legalistic ] correction to your outlaw vs criminal definition ;

    First off …

    ” Not all outlaws are criminals … But ! .. all criminals are outlaws ”

    The difference being .. outlaws are those who remain ‘outside ‘ ( hence the term outlaw ) the law harming no one other than possibly themselves in the process … whereas those who are criminals break the law leaving victims in their path

    e.g. We is outlaws .. whereas the likes of 1% biker gangs etc … are criminals

    A little viewing suggestion assuming its available in Espana … Joss Whedon’s ” Firefly ‘ TV series and its companion movie … ” Serenity ”

    Suffice it to say mi amigos … in ” Firefly ” parlance … we … are the browncoats .

    1. Damn … forgot to sign off appropriately ..

      Rock On – Ride On – Remain Calm ( despite all the bs ) and Do Carry On

      😎

      Singing the words of the ‘ bard’s ‘ ( Jim Morrison ) song ;

      ” Riders on the Storm “… cause beyond outlaws … that’s what we are … riders on the storm of life … with as HST said … the ” Song of the Sausage Monster ” on our tail
