Did a fun little shoot today for a photo project for an Australian friend today. I’ll let what it’s for and whatnot be a surprise, but I wanted to share something not often witnessed… me dressed to the nines.

One of these things is not like the other one… Sofi Tsingos (gt-moto.com) and her Honda CB550 cafe racer amidst a bunch of big 30” front wheel havin’ Harley baggers made by Misfit Industries (misfitmade.com). 
This is a behind the scenes shot from their shoot out in Palm Springs last weekend at the windmills. End of the road, end of the day.

Meeting Sofi & Riding Her CB550 Cafe Racer

A couple photos were posted yesterday featuring Sofi Tsingos and I, and her beautiful blue Honda CB550 cafe racer, out in Palm Springs. She was doing a super secret cool video shoot with Misfit Industries and invited me to come hang out. Miss Tsingos only three hours away? Couldn’t miss it.

She even let me take her amazing blue CB550 cafe racer for a spin!

I got to meet Sofi Tsingos of GT Moto today, she even let me ride her bitchin’ cafe racer!

She is every bit as awesome in person as she seems on the interwebs.

Sofi Tsingos’ GT Cafe for Cause Unveil

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?
