Deus Swank Rally

When it comes to irreverent fun on two wheels, there are few names that sound out as loudly as Deus Ex Machina.

From the beaches of Bali to the snowy mountains of Italy, the team at Deus just knows how to have fun, and they like to prove that fact at events like the Deus Swank Rally that went on just a couple weeks ago in the picturesque Riva Valdobbia region of Northwestern Italy.

The Swank Rally follows the awesomely loose "honor system," with each rider starting and stopping the stopwatch on their own before recording their time. This helps keep the competition loose, and ensures that everyone knows what the real goal is: Make a time you're happy with, but first and foremost — have fun.
