“10 WAYS TO LIVE” is an exploration of the motorcycle and its existence in design, function and as a cultural icon. Each of the bikes exhibited is significant in its own unique way. Some are especially significant to Alpinestars through association, but all are significant through inspiration. All of these bikes inspire, engage and beckon us. From the hallowed grounds of Italy and Japan to the blue-collar inhabited garages of Los Angeles, they all represent a unique feature, era, style or aesthetic of motorcycle culture. A culture that Alpinestars has been committed to and embedded in for 50 years. We present these 10 bikes as vehicles to freedom and vessels of inspiration.
10 Ways to Live was created by Alpinestars for the August 2012 Agenda Tradeshow in Long Beach. The 10 bikes were displayed from August 1-2 at the Long Beach Convention Center in Long Beach California. The exhibit celebrated our love for and commitment to motorcycle culture. It was photographed, admired and appreciated by tens of thousands of Agenda visitors.
