“Dark Rider” Documentary Follows Blind Aussie Pushing for World’s Fastest Blind Motorcyclist

Here in the motorcycle community proper, we are a diverse group of weirdos that all share one thing in common: we all love motorcycles. 

We love the whoosh of wind past our respective selves, we love the freedom of riding anywhere, and we love the camaraderie that comes with being part of the two-wheeled industry.

So what happens when a motorcyclist loses their eyesight?

Ben Felton, a blind motorcyclist connected to the new documentary labelled "Dark Rider"

If you think blindness means the end of the road for a biker, you’d be wrong.

This new documentary tells the incredible story of a blind motorcyclist named Ben Felton – a 51-year old man who experienced degenerative eye disease in his earlier years. 

Aired by Operation CAP 48 (a Belgian organization founded in 1957 that raises funds for people with disabilities) and supported by Yamaha, PositivelyScottish states that the documentary – christened “Dark Rider” – covers Felton as he fulfills his childhood dream: to take part in a motorcycle race across Lake Gairdner, a salt lake in the South East of Australia, in an attempt to, “beat the world track speed record and become the fastest blind motorcycle rider in the world.”

Directed by Eva Küpper and backed in the documentary by former Grand Prix champion Kevin Magee, we follow Felton as he reaches for what seems to be an impossible battle through insurmountable odds.

“I myself have a passion for motorcycles and speed,” states Eva Küpper.

“I rode circuits all over Europe. In 2014, while I was riding a circuit in England, a friend showed me a newspaper article about a blind motorcyclist in Scotland who had just broken a speed record. I know what speed is, and I couldn’t imagine it would be possible to drive without looking; it was amazing. I met him, but he was not ready to make the film. A few years later, he told me about a blind Australian who was training to break his record and was going to run a race. I called my producer, and we said, ‘Okay, let’s go!’.”

“It is unimaginable to see a blind man on a motorcycle trying to break a speed record. I love the idea of ​​Ben pushing those boundaries. It can arouse cravings in others. You can flourish by chasing your dreams; this is true for people with disabilities but really for everyone. After the screening, someone told me: ‘I’m not as handicapped as Ben, but if he can follow his dreams, so am I.’ It gives hope and inspiration to people, and I really love it.”

We couldn’t agree more.

Steve McQueen’s Garage Releases Iconic 1970 Husqvarna 400 Cross To Auction

It’s been a hot minute since we covered McQueen’s last beastie to go on auction – a gorgeous Husqvarna Viking 360 that sold for a whopping $204,000 at Rob Myers (RM) Sotheby’s – an auction house specializing in rare antique, classic, and sports and racing automobiles since 1979.

Now, the same name to let go of the Viking 360 (Blacksmith Garage in Eden, Utah) is ready to release another incredibly famous bike – and the beastie in question is none other than McQueen’s 400 Cross.

According to the press release, the 1970 400 Cross motorcycle was a staple in Steve McQueen’s hands after his procurement on May 10th, 1970, from Edison Dye, proprietor of Med-International, the ‘Father of American Motocross’ and first and exclusive importer of Husqvarna motorcycles

The bike brought the dude fame and fortune with the duo’s appearance in the 1971 movie “On any Sunday” (and the successive bare-chested appearance for a jump photo on the cover of Sports Illustrated, later in 1971).

Before McQueen’s influence on the beastie, the 400 Cross was a popular bike with precise handling and incredible horsepower. In the gloved hands of gents such as Bengt Aberg (who raced a 400 cross to win the 1969 and 1970 500cc World Championships), Gunnar Nilsson, J.N. Roberts, Malcolm Smith, and Whitey Martino, the 400 Cross made headlines worldwide.

The press release states that the auction will bring the bike to the podium in complete restored condition, thanks to a 2014 project courtesy of Vintage Moto Factory, Santa Barbara, California (and the bike has never been ridden since).

The best part about this auction for me?

“An accompanying original invoice dated 10 May 1970 from Edison Dye’s Med-International—the sole US proprietor of Husqvarna Motorcycles—notes that a 250-cc Husky Cross (s/n MH-2883) and this 400-cc Cross (s/n MH-2807) were sold to Steve McQueen’s Solar Productions for a total of $1,918 USD.

Interestingly, there is an incredibly cool note on the invoice:

‘See Edison on this!!! / For Steve!!!’ [signed by Edison himself].”
