I love sidecars as much as the next guy, unless the next guy is a lush from the 1920s. But the point of motorcycles is that they are single-passenger rockets. They are the ideal go-it-alone, blaze-your-own-trail vehicle. Tattoos are similar in that they are a way to set yourself apart—it's no wonder that most riders have ink.

I have an idea for Fat Mike: He has that [NOFX] album S&M Airlines, so he should make an airline where you don't just put a seat belt buckle on, but get strapped into your chair. And I'll let you imagine what the flight attendants look like. George Constantine Ann Arbor, Ml Holy shit, I had no idea that Fat Mike was into submission!

SWEET GEORGIA BROWN BLUE
$7
Once your hair is set with this strong-hold pomade ($7, sweetgbrownpomade.com) it isn't going anywhere for the rest of the day. It even passes the motorcycle ride test. The Blue also gives your mane a shiny-matte finish.

SUAVECITO POMADE
$10
This new kid on the block ($10, suavecito pomade.com) is impressive and doesn't demand top-shelf prices. As they explain: "It is wrong to charge someone more for what they put in their hair than what their haircut actually costs."

90WT FLAT-TOP WAX
$8
What a throwback this product ($8, thegrease shop.com) is. The lid of the wax even advertises a "Prize Inside," à la Cracker Jack. If you want a haircut that Grandpa Simpson says you could "set your watch to," this is your goop.

AXE
$8
Praise the AXE scientists. They remedied this quandary of making a product strong enough to shape hair but not so sticky that a woman can't run her fingers through it. Their eureka moment came with this spiking glue ($8, drugstore.com).
Anja Cadlek
Other than the tattoos on your skin, the most customizable part of your look is your hair. It connotes as much about you as your clothing, and in some cases it can not only identify you, but also define you (e.g., Curly, Blondie, Shaggy). Plenty of social groups have even used a hairstyle to identify members—the greasers, the longhairs, the skinheads—to the point that non-members might be downright scared to have similar 'dos.

On the border of Tennessee and North Carolina there's an 11-mile span of U.S. Route 129 that has 318 curves. It's called the Tail of the Dragon, and it's a rider's dream of twists and foliage. If you dare to slay it, spend your downtime in these spots recommended by East Tennessee tattooer Casey Treat.

Nick Fierro
Victory's latest creation, the Judge (2013), is a streamlined muscle bike, the perfect blend of power and style. It's lighter and has a thinner wheelbase than its predecessors, but still gives a nod to the golden age of the cycle with its cast throwback wheels, classic dual exhaust, and smooth curves.

I went for my first ride on the back of a Triumph on a dirt road on my grandmother's farm. It felt like flying, still does. I've always been a gearhead—a mechanical type of guy. My first job was building stealth fighters. Of course, I can afford bikes and cars, and I can't afford a fighter plane—they go for a few hundred million each, and even with zero percent financing, the payments are pretty steep.

Few lifestyles seem more at odds than pro wrestling and straight edge punk. The success of WWE relies on its ability to tell over-the-top stories involving larger-than-life Superstars to millions watching on TV or in packed arenas. Excess is the key to the WWE image: enormous egos, huge physiques, gigantic spectacles.

The aim of American jails is to ingest wayward souls and rehabilitate them to the point where they are useful to society. While it might not have been the California penal system's goal, the jails in that state also fostered the prison tattoo art of Freddy Negrete, who went on to pioneer the fine-line black-and-gray work seen on everyone from inmates to A-listers.

Punk rock is doing what you love and not giving a shit about conventionality, take for instance Flogging Molly who has a tin whistle in their seven-piece act. Molly blew the doors off of NYC's Hammerstein Ballroom during their Live Nation tour, delighting an audience of punks who damn conventional society with skin art. There are few jewelry makers we dig more than The Great Frog, so when the London-based metal workers opened up shop in Manhattan we came to help them christen the store, and then later toasted Great Frog at the Thompson Hotel while DJ Michael Baltra spun.
