Blue Coyote is a Trickster and a Creator. He can be a sage or an idiot. He is about traveling and transformation, high deeds and low pranks. He is a mischievous rogue, a lover, a glutton, a shape-shifter. He is a breaker of taboos and a creator of culture. Coyote is a wise fool. Chantelle Rytter would like to buy a beer for the patron of Blue Coyote.

The Goods Carrier Bike was inspired by one element of the perpetual sensory chaos of India: goods carrier trucks. The culture of intricately painting trucks is inspired by truck driver pride in having the most souped up ride on the road. All the trucks display what to anyone outside truck driving culture are esoteric memes such as “horn OK please,” “use dipper at night,” or a more straight forward “good luck.” The Hindi on the bike says “meri Bharat mahan” or, “My India is great” and “Jai Hindustan” meaning “Long live India.”
