Oh don’t mind me, just climbing around on my Monster to get the right perspective for some photos.
When I’m not riding, writing, and designing… I’m taking photos of cool stuff. Yeah, that includes my own bike.

My dude Wolf got workin’ on his XS650 chopper project again last night. Plans were made to have it done by Born Free this weekend, but as happens with building motorcycles, it had to be put on hiatus for a little while. 
Don’t have a lift? Use a cinderblock. Ghetto fabulousness.

Here are some shots I got with my phone from the Hell on Wheels MC Vintage MX rally yesterday in Riverside, CA at Milestone MX Park. MotoGeo, Deus, Bixby Moto, ESMB, and BA Moto all had representatives there racing.

It was an amazing time, so many cool people, old bikes (and new), good music, BBQ, beer, the list goes on. Keep your eyes peeled for the bigger post on the event, as I’ll be dumping all the photos off my “real” camera here soon. 

Cherry on top- blasting down the freeway on the way back to Ventura, we spotted the mid-60s Ranchero that had been at the event.

Arto Saari: Pro Skateboarder & Photographer

One of my favorite things to do is give background stories to images most of us have seen floating around the internet. This old school style black and white photograph is a good example of that. 

After some sleuthing I found that this is Arto Saari’s capture of a motorcyclist friend Kynan Tait cruising on his Harley, stuff (and skateboard) packed on bike, snapping a photo right back at the lens.

Arto was raised in Finland, now resides in the USA, and is a professional photographer and skateboarder. For some more shots and behind the scenes stuff, keep reading.

The bike was previously owned by her boyfriend’s Father who passed away, she bought it up when the opportunity presented itself. “There is definitely something special about the bike and even though I’ve never met his dad I feel like we hang out when I ride.”

New Unicode/Emoji Motorcycle Symbol

Noticed the story, “‘Racing Motorcycle’ Emoji Finally Coming to a Smartphone Near You – A Headline We Never Thought We’d Write” on Asphalt & Rubber today which got my nerdy side excited. Any emoji-centric texting (or even instramming) between motorcyclists can now be one-upped. No more blasting cloud following the bicycle symbol… don’t act like you don’t know what I’m talking about.

Here’s the kicker though- I actually dug through pages of boring Unicode website that looks like it was designed in 1999 and found the real new “Racing Motorcycle” unicode symbol.

Which really could just be called, “Sport Bike Rider” but eh, whatever. I’ll be happy if it ends up on our smart phones. It’s the little things, right?

Pretty excited about my feature in Tank Moto magazine (website) from Australia.  It’s amazing quality makes the 143 full bleed pages of beautiful motorcycle photographs that much better.

The nine page spread includes photographs from my trip to the Bonneville Salt Flats, the Touratech ADV Moto Rally, Ride the Edge Ontario Adventure, working on the Dual Sporty project, and some shots of Pandora. I’m absolutely flattered and honored to be included in such a beautiful magazine, thanks guys!

This weekend in Dallas, TX, the awe-inspiring Sofi Tsingos unveiled the cafe racer build that she’s raffling off for charity at the Gas Monkey Bar n Grill.

Sofi started GT Cafe for Cause to build a bike with her dad who was diagnosed with cancer- her plan is to give all proceeds to cancer research. A noble cause, a beautiful bike, and a wonderful woman. How can you go wrong?
