Claudio D’Onofrio

“I am a motorcyclist with a weakness for sidecars. But i am a musician and a creative guy too, a dreamer with feet on the ground, dealing with media marketing and communication every day. I fell in love with “slow ride” philosofy covering thousands of miles on secondary roads all over Europe, discovering places and people, as well as smells and tastes, that help to slow down and literally stretch your time. Thanks to my ucrainian sidecar and it’s restoration process i carried out myself, i understood that a vintage ride stands for a slow travel, that some very basic mecanic under the tank is strongly linked to that “unexpected” that fills your day and puts travelling, instead of the the finish line, well under the spotlight.”
