Welcome to the official Instagram account of El Solitario. An indiscrete eye on our daily rants & rumbles.
Like our native Galicia, what we forge in our studio is wild, rugged, thrilling, often beautiful & some times scary... but always uncompromising.
The original idea for this movie was just to show the world how bored and tired we were of road and traffic regulations, as well as all conventionalism propagated by selfish politicians that the only thing they really care about, is to leave their seat with deep pockets and a big grin. Also we wanted to show some love & respect to the awesome people that have helped us jump into the world of off road riding and showed us how its done.
But later with the deliberate burn of all the forests surrounding our schools, bars, houses and our studio, we realized it was time to rise the volume and join the fight to preserve our lives. Motorcycles have a horrible image around the world because we don’t obey, but we are among the most sustainable communities I know. We suffer the elements in our face though love and respect them. We don’t take them for granted! Of course most idiots will think that it is us, off roaders and other people that pursue their freedom in the wildlife, that are responsible for the loss of our ecosystems. Now, policymakers will try to ban motorcycles, bicycles or people walking their dog in our forests so that they can continue making money with the future of our children, unwatched.
At El Solitario we understand the need to evolve to keep it real, but human evolution has become a path of destruction. Our world is being looted and vandalized by greed and a ferocious excess of human population. Our immediate answer was to scape civilization and blend into one of the most remote and least populated areas of the country. Still human stupidity caught up with us and brought its destructive ethos along, burning our habitat. No we know that we shall do what we can to stop this. And if we need to get political and radicalize our activism on the way, so be it. This vital journey we embarked 8 years ago was intended to leave a positive imprint in our world and so we it will be!

Riders anniversary party was in danger due to the stormy weather, but the wolves weren't to let that happen!
On the Saturday of Wheels & Waves El Solitario unveiled its wildest endeavour so far.
A secret project that has accompanied our family for years and finally saw the light this early Summer night. El Solitario’s Barbacoa Sauce!@#$
We cooked, devoured, drank a hell of a lot of whisky and danced till very late into the night until security kicked us out
Special thanks to Dewar's Scotch Whisky for your love and dedication with the wolves.
IN ALCOHOL WE TRUST!

MUSIC: Ocelote Rojo & Modera

**El Solitario House of Racing Wizardry
Long tales and short stories featuring the adventures of El Solitario MC.
From the depths of the Galician forests, El Solitario has been challenging the status quo since its birth in 2010; Known both for the emotional power and raw energy of our motorcycles and the romantic but determinedly contemporary nature of our collections.
Fundamental to our culture is the juxtaposition of contrasting elements: fragility and strength, tradition and modernity, fluidity and severity. We are not a fashion brand nor a motorcy- cle company. El Solitario is just the umbrella under which we develop our creative ethos. All parts influence the others and only dance to the beats of our own drums.
Riding motorcycles is the epitome of speed, a genuine modern revelation. Innumerable great men and women have succumbed to the allure, and felt the fire in their bellies, propelling through adversity on nothing more than a skinny-motored artifact. Nonetheless shredding any semblance of mundanity from their lives, El Solitario, connects with the sense of awareness and strength that riders develop due to the inherent risk, fragility and outsider spirit that defines their way of life.
El Solitario is the vanguard of the new global motorcycle movement that is combining motorcycles, art, clothing and cultural events. We are not ashamed to be educated or sophisticated, nor to be interested in more than the stats of racing or the posturing of faux outlaw bikers. We manufacture and sell products no one dares to make and enjoy treading a tight rope. Our strategy and product line is disruptive and captivating. We dictate trends, we do not follow them. Ask anybody.
