July 2011. Brotherhood of The Wind/ Motorcycle Road Culture in America. Meadview, Arizona. Tony, 48, on a Heritage Soft Tail Harley. Since an accident, he wears a chrome and leather leg brace, and his spine has a custom-made steel prosthetic to fit his Harley. “I didn’t want nothing too stiff,” he remarked, “so before the surgery they put me in the riding position and cast a curve that suited me for my bike. Yeah, man. I guess you could call it a Harley curve.” Piotr Redlinski for The New York Times.
