MILWAUKEE – Jan. 9, 2014 – The Harley-Davidson Museumopens Living Lost
Photographs by Josh Kurpius on Jan. 17, its newest exhibit featuring
more than 30 original works by custom bike builder, rider and
photographer Josh Kurpius. Living Lost is a presentation of
photographs taken during a series of road trips across the country on
a chopped 1977 Harley-Davidson motorcycle. The images give an honest,
open look at the uninhibited lifestyle of a group of nomadic bikers
out to explore the American panorama.
If you’re anywhere near Milwaukee, make a trip to the H-D Museum for a
special look at a new exhibit of photography by Josh Kurpius. The
“Living Lost” exhibit opens on January 17th, and features photos from
a series of road trips Josh too around the USA on a chopped ’77 hog.

Cleveland Day Trip
Looking forward to making a trip up on January 31st to Cleveland with a few of my friends for our annual visit to the IMS show at the I-X Center. Not only do we get to see the latest and greatest in motorcycles, gear and services, but I get a chance to peruse the awesome bikes in the Ultimate Builder Custom Bike Show. And as a bonus we usually stop to check out Harley-Davidson Biketown in Austintown, Ohio and then head over to the nearby Quaker Steak and Lube for some great food.
