Interview with Chris Hunter of BikeEXIF
Read the full interview here:
– Who are you and where are you from?
– My name is Chris Hunter and I live in Sydney, Australia, with my wife and three children. I’m English, I’m originally from London.
– What are you doing in life?
– By day I’m a creative director for an advertising agency. I occasionally write for marketing magazines and other websites, and in 2005 my first book was published. Bike EXIF is something I do in the evenings, and at weekends after the kids are in bed.
– What is Bike EXIF?
– The world’s leading motorcycle culture and design website. I’m passionate about design, photography and motorcycles, and Bike EXIF is a way to combine all three. And to connect with other people who share the same interests, like you.
– Yes Sir, What are you riding?
– My daily ride is a Moto Guzzi V7 Classic. I’m planning on getting a custom 1970s Guzzi V7 Sport or Le Mans one day.
– The V7 Classic is a great city bike, light and nimble in traffic. It’s also powerful enough for long journeys, I did 2,500km around New South Wales and Victoria in five days back in January. And it starts first time every day!
– What color is your Moto Guzzi?
– White. That was the only colour available when it was launched!
– Which brands are your favorite in the motorcycle world?
Moto Guzzi, Ducati, BMW and Ural. In custom bikes, Deus Ex Machina, Ritmo Sereno and The Wrenchmonkees.
– Do you prefer Italian bikes or British bikes?
I like both. The only bikes I don’t like are “universal Japanese motorcycles” and the current model Harley-Davidsons, apart from the XR1200.
– What are your favorite in other motorcycle blogs?
Insuring your collectible or vintage motorcycle
As for insurance for your collectible motorcycle? You should be able to get Agreed Value coverage on a classic 1959 BSA Gold Star Catalina valued at $15,000 for somewhere around $25 a month, and that gives you the whole shooting match of coverage.
You can spend a lot less, but if you plan to ride the bikes in your collection, the above pricing is a reasonable approximation of what you can expect to pay.
