Phil Hawkins is magical with his camera on the Bonneville Salt Flats- these shots were captured at the 2013 BUB Motorcycle Speed trials, which was sadly rained out on Wednesday (half way through the event).

While an utter bummer for anyone trying to break world land speed records, it’s a beautiful sight for the rest of us. “There’d be no rainbows without rain” as they say.

A wet plate photograph from Paul d’Orleans (of the Vintagent), a modern ‘Rollie Free’ at Bonneville Salt Flats for BUB Motorcycle Speed Trials. BUB got rained out again this year, which makes setting land speed records impossible, but does however make for great photographs.  
Still, so sad I didn’t make it.

The MotoLady redbubble shop is growing by the day- two iPhone cases now available (ipod, ipod touch, iphone 3, 4/4s, and 5) in two versions… salt flats and zombie hunter. Also added, two new motolady stickers!

Go take a gander, you know your iphone needs new clothes!

Film: Out of Nothing

The magic of Bonneville Salt Flats and land speed racing there is mentioned often around these parts. During my 2012 trip to the BUB speed trials and Bonneville, I had the good fortune to meet a very talented photographer and videographer, Chad DeRosa. He and I both had the same mission- capture the magic of the salt flats and Sodium Distortion race team. Our end vision however was very different- he was filming for “Out of Nothing,” an epic tale of four men forging land speed records. 

An Interview with Photographer Ray Gordon

Ever wanted to know a magician’s secrets? I’ll admit, seeing Ray Gordon’s photography over the years has often left me in a state of wonder. How, why, where?! What on earth came upon someone and compelled them to drive a Camaro off a cliff? I got the chance to ask him all these questions and more.

His project THROTTLED was most recently displayed at the fourth annual One Motorcycle Show in February (check out my review of the One Moto 2013 here) and helped set the tone for the entire event. Chances are you’ve seen his work before- like in the shot I posted of Tori and Amy riding a minibike on the beach, or on countless motorcycle and hotrod websites.

I am so thrilled that Phil and I happened to be free and run into each other on the flats- I can’t imagine not having these awesome photos. Thanks again, man!

Bonneville Salt Flats… BUB motorcycle speed trials 2012. Photo by Phil Hawkins.
I heard tell of being on the salt flats during this rain storm. It came out of no where- and at one end of the raceway you could see the clouds coming for you. Like they were hot on your tail, faster and faster. Riding away as quickly as you could, they’d be nipping at your heels… and then they’d catch you. Dumping rain… more than anyone had before experienced in the prior nine years of BUB.

Paul d’Orléans (of the Vintagent blog) took his old Chamonix camera to the Bonneville Salt Flats. Wet plate motorcycle photography on a dry lake bed. How cool!
This photo of Ana Llorente (racer and East Side Moto Babe) on her 175cc Motobecane is definitely my favorite.

Diesel salt racer! So bad ass. This thing sounded so mean… smelled good too.
