Deus Ex Machina at the Malle Mile

Deus Ex Machina at the Malle Mile

Ricky Knight Posted on 5th July 2016 by Ricky Knight

Deus ex Machina (god from the machine) roared into Australia’s cultural consciousness in 2006, with some neatly customised motorcycles and a quaint notion… these days they’re the epitome of all things cool; custom bikes, surfboards, clothing, cafes & live events. They even have a god-damn record label!

So it was inevitable when we met that there would be some mutual respect for one another… A nod to ‘those that know’.

Silver Belles are supplying Deus Ex Machina with various vintage Airstreams for their partnership events, and the latest get together was quite special; The Malle Mile.

The Mile is a motorcycle exhibition in motion, a ‘Gentlemanly’ race for the men and women who share the ideology – that motorcycles are there to be ridden.

The idea for ‘The Malle Mile’ started when they tried to enter The Mille Miglia an infamous 1000 mile race through Italy – unfortunately it was stopped in 1957 because it was just too dangerous and competitive. But the idea of hosting a non- competitive race to bring the moto community together was born.

The Mile is a celebration of motorcycling, racing, custom machines, music, British motor-sports heritage and the British summertime.
