Last night I returned home from a ride, picked up the iPad and found the notification of a new issue of Motorcycle Rides & Culture in my Zinio account, sweet… new reads! What I found inside, wasn’t so sweet afterall. Amongst the usual tour pieces, bike tests, build outs and product tests (including mine of the […]
RoadBike / Motorcycle Rides & Culture
Hidden between our youthful discretions and our elderly wisdom is a grey zone rife with confusion… if you manage it poorly. Or excitement if you’re a lucky one. And while the choices in life might not always be yours, the machine you ride (possibly the most important one) is one that is. And one you […]
Twist the grip wide open, and upon take-off, hold it wide open for just a beat more and the road opens up screaming for mercy. As mother earth’s grip upon your rear end’s contact patch breaks, the devil’s deamons howl out your name in rejoice. Echoing off the cityscape around you and the machine, you’re […]
For the last few years, I’ve been gleefully chasing a woman around the world. Six countries in 3 years, thousands of air miles and nearly a million photographs and kisses. While I had the time of my life digging a new hole (i.e. credit limit) for myself, It’s time for a change. Time to break […]
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 […]
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 […]
Mark your calendars for the last weekend of August and point your handlebars toward the high sierras of California and Nevada. If you’re not already familiar with the popular lakeside ski-town of Lake Tahoe, be prepared to learn a lot right now. Historically known for the gold & silver rushes of the 19th century, volcanic […]
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 […]
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.
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 […]
