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 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.

Elegance is usually confused with superficiality, fashion, lack of depth. This is a serious mistake: human beings need to have elegance in their actions and in their posture because this word is synonymous with good taste, amiability, equilibrium and harmony

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.
