How Justin Chatwin Became a Big Name in Motorcycles

Justin Chatwin is a Canadian actor and he is well-known for the roles he played in the 2005 film “War of the Worlds,” the 2007 film “The Invisible” and the 2009 “Dragonball Evolution.” He’s also a big name in motorcycles and many people are wondering just how this came to be. Here is how Justin Chatwin became involved in motorcycles and how his name came to be so closely associated with them.

His passions

It’s evident that one of Justin’s passions is acting and he does a fine job of it, but his other interests include writing and extreme sports. He’s an avid traveler, lover of film photography and motorcycle enthusiast. He’s an enthusiastic author and if you haven’t read his Nitro and Glycerin piece written n September of 2014, it’s recommended.

His Southwestern road trip

Chatwin was working on the set of the hit television series “Shameless” when he took some time off to take a road trip with a friend. He knows how to keep things real between and man and his friend and their bikes. It’s the realism that he shares from his real-life experiences that captures the attention of both motorcycle enthusiasts and those who simply admire his sense of freedom and his perspectives on how liberating jumping on the back of a bike and touring the country can be. Not everyone is willing to just take off and go exploring without a set agenda or money to see you through. His road letters tell of living out of a duffel, sleeping where he could and traveling distances of 1,800 miles in just 3 days. The very descriptions he gives of his experiences on the road make you feel as though you were there with him. Was there fear on the journey? Yes, and justifiably so when they were in the country where drug cartels were out doing their thing after dark and they were in the heart of their territory. They took good advice from the locals on shortcuts to the border and avoiding any trouble with the local criminals and all in all, the true story was nothing short of enthralling.

He has a powerfully passionate point of view that’s inspiring

You can feel the power of Chatwin’s passion as you read, the lines he’s written. He and a riding buddy were given the names Nitro and Glycerine because they were wild and crazy guys. Nitro had a bright idea about the two of them heading off to Europe and doing it for free. The two found their way to Europe and did precisely what they set out to do, which was to travel on a dime so to speak. Chatwin has not only ridden about every kind of motorcycle that has been produced, but he’s also one hell of a writer and his stories are inspiring. He’s been writing for just under a decade but he does it well.

Chatwin’s trip to Europe

Chatwin dialed up a friend who just happened to be in Europe at the time. With two weeks left on his hiatus from the set of “Shameless,” he challenged him to an impromptu ride through Italy. Of course, his bike of choice was a Ducati. You see, Chatwin has a hunger deep inside to explore the world in all its glory. The terrain, the roads, the people and their cultures. It all fascinates him and he’s got the bravado to just go do it at the drop of a hat. How could we not admire him? He’s humble and doesn’t place himself on any kind of pedestal and it makes everyone love him all the more. Who else do you know that can call the Ducati Motorcycle company and explain that they’re an actor and journalist that wants them to loan he and a traveling companion a couple of their bikes to test drive?

How did Justin become a big name in motorcycles?

He’s ridden motorcycles in almost every country in the world and he’s written about the experience with such moving and enthralling detail that it’s not difficult to understand how Justin Chatwin has become such a big name in motorcycles. Here’s a guy that has on more than one occasion taken to the open road with a friend, a duffel, their bikes and little more. He’s a seasoned rider who writes about motorcycles from an expert point of view and it is our recognition of this fact that has made his name synonymous with real riding.
