LUSSO Magazine paired Adventurer Russ Malkin with VH1 Vogue Male Model of the Year Charley Speed and gave them the enviable task of creating the ultimate one-week road trip. The pair took some of the most incredible machines and toured from The Dorchester on London’s Park Lane, to Reims, Geneva, Verona and Lyon. The full series will be available in March 2014, for now, we hope you enjoy the trailer.
