You might try searching online for companies that sell T-shirts to motorcycle enthusiasts in Mexico. Googling camiseta and moto(cicleta) might turn up some ideas.

I totally agree. I'm trying to help my sons with a t-shirt business geared to Spanish bikers,
but I explained to them the same message you posted. I suggested slang or splangish
phrases. It will be a challenge for them.

The word ride is difficult to translate into Spanish, and I'm not sure that pasear will work in this sense. What you are doing is not so much translation as copywriting, so you need to explain to a native speaker exactly what emotions you are trying to evoke in the reader, the purpose of the text, etc., and ask them to come up with something, which may not even be related to the original English.

Live to ride, ride to live = Viva para pasear, pasee para vivir

I don't know what the equivalent of hard would be in this context, but duro means hard.
