Winter is right around the corner, and if you own a motorcycle and live in a part of the country that endures freezing temperatures, rain and snow this time of year, you're likely also staring at a long, painful stint out of the saddle. The good news is that time keeps on slipping into the future, and spring is but a skip down the calendar. Fortunately, we have the power of the internet to help scratch the riding itch during the dark months. Scott Toepfer has finally released his short film, "It's Better in the Wind," and the 15-minute clip spends time following three riders as they explore the world on a trio of vintage customs.

Toepfer himself rides an old Yamaha XS650, and the machine consumed a number of mechanical pieces during the months that it took to shoot the film. While Toepfer relied on plenty of digital equipment to capture his scenes, he also turned to a classic Super-8 as well. The finished product is perfectly cool, and makes us pine for another road trip. Hit the jump to check it out.
