If you're into surfing exotic locations, then Deus Ex Machina is the customizer you want making your next motorcycle. We've previously covered bikes from them that were specifically geared towards the surfer. These included the Sea sider and the Deus Ex Machina Bali dog. There latest the Deus Ex Machina D-Side Motorcycle ($CALL) is a collaboration with Yamaha and the third entry in their Yard Build Project. Since seeing a motorcycle with a wheelchair they've had the urge to build a three wheel motorcycle and Yamaha has helped make that dream come true. The loaner bike was a Yamaha XV950 and upgrades include a new sidecar with 19" wheel and integrated door, aluminum tank, and mudguards, Sella Alcantara nautical cover, front Discacciati front breaks with 6-piston calipers, Firestone tires, custom paint job by Kaos Design, and a ton of smaller changes. The D-Side is the perfect bike for a day out on the beach.

The new Nike Lunar Force 1 "World Basketball Festival" Sneaker ($125) will drop August 14th at Nike retailers. The uppers feature an orange pebbled leather that looks like an actual basketball.

I'm digging the new Nike Air Yeezy 2 Red October ($2500) shoes by Kanye West, because the guy just goes for it. Although, it would be nice to see some of his stuff at a lower price point. These bad boys solid out in 11 minutes at the original offering and can now be had on eBay starting at about two grand. The shoes feature an all red colorway, a molded rear panel, an engineered strap and studs of various sizes throughout the shoe.
