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.
Homemade Heartbreaker – Pleasure Spiked With Pain If, as they say, every dark cloud has a silver lining, then the opposite must also be true. That is to say, for every peak, there’s a valley; no good deed goes unpunished; and triumph is often entwined with tragedy. For Jamey Montey, this real-life manifestation of Newton’s […]
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!
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 […]
MonsoonCross returns, H-D takes back Beach Street, History made at the 200 Upon arrival in Florida this year, I found the weather fouling up the first weekend’s energy, but after shaking loose the early wave of attendees, the poles reversed, the winds shifted back to their usual jet stream and the sunny skies and famous […]
Wrestling its American-builder rival since 1999, Victory began building motorcycles with a strong sense of attitude and made-in-America value. In the last few years, as the markets’ waistlines grow bigger and want for more comfort begs the builder to create baggers and touring bikes, the Medina, MN-company has been lead astray from the roots. Last […]
The American builder revealed a pair of new bikes at local biker hangout Cook’s Corner in February of this year. Over the next few months the photos would be used in many publications and I managed to shoot each of the bikes independently for other magazines as well. Andrew Cherney authored this review of […]
Imagine the Pacific Ocean crashing against the rocky coast of California’s northern half, a ribbon of asphalt longer than a day’s ride drawing the line between the land and the sea, and you’re on your way there right now. Your flight is booked, your motorcycle rental is all lined up and your status updates updated. […]
When I wrote this touring story, I originally titled it “Good to Be King” to bring attention to the obvious Road King I was riding, but to also tell you that I was listening to Tom Petty when I wrote it. Check out the November issue of American Iron to read my first touring […]
Also in the August 2011 issue of Motorcycle Cruiser, you’ll find my ride review of the 2012 Victory High-Ball. I ride I’d gotten after a cross coutry ride form Los Angeles to Daytona on a pair of Victory Cruisers. Not only did I write this piece but I also shot it – under the lights […]
In march of 2011, I shot the High-Ball introduction for Victory Motorcycles, one of the resulting articles was this one in RoadBike July 2011.
