Two-wheeled empowerment

Confederate Motorcycle Company was founded in 1991 "to create machines utilizing a holistic, avant-garde process for celebrating the art of rebellion." While this mixture of hypersensitivity and anarchy might sound painfully awkward on paper, the company's since turned out some of the most striking motorcycle designs seen in years. The latest: The new limited-edition (45 of them) C120 Renaissance Fighter, debuting at the Quail Motorsports Gathering in Carmel, Calif., a week from today. Confederate claims that the bike delivers "personal liberation" via the deployment of "yang energy"; we'd rather note that this badass packs 1966 cc's and tops out at 190. It's sold exclusively through Neiman Marcus for now—so while the wife's stocking up on La Mer crème, you can get your ya-yas (or your yin/yang) out too, provided you're willing to rebel against your bank balance.
