Take a Polynesian naming convention, add in the European dialect and influence of the 1600s, a dash of contemporary-dipped architecture, wildlife one finds in the zoo, some rainforest glaciers and the ease of traveling in English and what do you get? A tour though the last discovered landmass on earth… New Zealand. Read the whole […]

Here’s my first story on New Zealand, in a three day ride story in Cruiser. If Gandalf the Grey was a motorcyclist (You know he’s a biker!), you might already be sick of hearing about the backroads and byways of New Zealand, instead, hardly anyone knows of the their greatness. With high mountain passes, glacial […]
Also sitting on my doorstep last week was the October 2012 issue of RoadBike where my Lake Tahoe tour story published along with both copy and photos by myself. The Victory Boardwalk intro was shot by Brian J Nelson, words are mine. You’ll fine more back story on the Lake Tahoe event happening right now […]
Its a good month for the Fonz indeed. Returning from my Sturgis tour, I come home to two magazines on my desk, each with two stories I’ve shot or written, one each actually! 🙂 First we have the October issue of RoadRUNNER where the first part of my Grapes to Gold tour ran, including a […]
The new Victory Boulevard basks in the setting sun… Back in May of this year I assisted on the shooting of Victory’s 2013 model year catalog, in doing so I became a riding model, manually-adjustable light stand (holding flashes) and third shooter to the week of shooting in and around Los Angeles county. Today the […]
The crew over at Motorcycle.com rang me up while I was in Daytona Beach this Spring, asking what my plans were for Sturgis. I was shocked at the amount of forethought behind this project, but I welcomed it. Months later the “long term” Victory HardBall buildout has begun and just barely in time to ride to […]
Here’s a two-part story I did for Roadrunner Travel magazine highlighting the backroads and byways of Northern California. They are as yet unpublished, but Part 1 should be hitting the shelves in the next few weeks. Here’s an except from Part 1: Once a year, freedom rings louder than normal and people are free to […]
Here’s another yet to be published tour for RoadRUNNER Travel magazine of the Eastern Sierras. Taking a week on a BMW F800GS, some camping supplies and cameras, I sought out to find some hot springs, but by taking the hard way over several near-14,000 mountain peaks and passes. Riding with the Elders When you first […]
In an article titled “Channeling Benjamin Button,” RoadBike head honcho reviewed the 2012 Harley-Davivdson FLS Softail Slim, a bike I shot for him in Daytona this March during Bike Week.
While riding up to Laguna Seca for the MotoGP races, I wrote a touring story highlighting the Pacific Coast Highway in California and the journalists that ride it’s winding asphalt. RoadBike Magazine featured it this year before this year’s race weekend. Here’s an except: Amidst the hullabaloo and heat of summertime vacationing traffic there’s a migration […]
For years now, you’ve been riding back a forth between home and work with your eye on the little scratch of a road climbing up the side of that mountain… the one heading up the lake, trail, or secret hunting spot. You know the one. But it’s a dirt road and your bagger isn’t cut […]
In June, I shot the new model release of the 2012 Honda Metro 50 in nearby Redondo Beach, CA. The local tour began at the Honda HQ in Torrance, CA and traveled to the ocean and back with a stop at the Alpinestars offices for a slow race. Challenging the attending journos to compete against […]
Among the many motorcycles I shot for RoadBike this year in Daytona, the 2012 Harley-Davivdson Sportster 72 was one of them… Also in this is is a custom bike I shot in Sturgis last fall, see John Cosentini’s Yamaha Road Star here.
While riding in Death Valley with the AltRider “Taste of Dakar” event, I picked up a few shots of Motorcyclist’s Brian Catterson… he used a few in his Cat Tales column in the June 2012 Issue. Thanks B!
Along with fellow journalist Jeff Buchanan, poking our noses into a Torrance, CA warehouse, we found a secret museum owner by Honda Motors. Containing both automobiles and motorcycles, we shaped up a few photos and called every magazine chieftain we knew to tell the story of our finding. To date, Sport Rider, Cycle News and […]
San Diego county is host to California’s second-largest city and also has the pleasure of securing America’s border from neighboring Mexico and it’s migrating masses. Despite being portrayed as a line in the sand surrounded by flaming barbed-wire fences, manned by armed vigilantes picking off “illegals” like empty bottles of High Life perched on the […]
In April I traveled up to Redding, CA, to shoot another media event with Kawasaki and the ATV/ UTV media at the Chappie-Shasta OHV park. Under US Homeland Security-level privacy, we toured the park on Brute Force ATVs and Teryxii… media inclusion to come. Attending media included: UTVGuide.net and I even made the cover of their […]
