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? 

Dirt Quake USA

In 2012 Sideburn Magazine dreamt up a crazy idea to bring a variety riders together for dirty competition- from professionals to novices, everyone (and all types of bikes) were welcome on the dirt track. The original Dirt Quake event took place in Coventry, Canada.

This year Sideburn and See See Motorcycles teamed up to bring Dirt Quake to the USA… specifically the Pacific Northwest about an hour outside of Portland. I can’t think of a better place to host it, either. A plethora of bikes and folks made it out- from serious racers to costumed jokesters, well prepped dirt bikes to overweight baggers… everyone had a blast on the dirt track. 

Can’t help but love a giant Teletubby riding a chopper with a suicide shifter around a dirt track. There was even a ladies only class (as well as an inappropriate street bike class)!

Two awesome things going on here. The first is an awesome giveaway in conjunction with British Customs’ Iron Moto Challenge. For registering and voting online you can win: 

  • $1500 Trip to Cabo provided by Raen Optics

The One Moto Show (video)

There were a lot of dynamic parts of the One Motorcycle Show no. 5 that I didn’t feel satisfied capturing in one frame. So this time I did something a little different and made a short video featuring highlights that really give the One show it’s uniqueness.

Desert Party in Ocotillo Wells, CA from Feb 28th to Mar 2nd 2014 for the 5th Anniversary of Trophy Motorcycles (website). 
Trophy is a vintage motorcycle shop in San Diego that specializes in Triumphs and other British bikes. Restoration, parts, etc. They lent me a vintage desert sled for my shoot with Lanakila for the Women&#8217;s Moto Exhibit, and are all around good guys. 
Plus, it&#8217;s a great excuse to braap around in the desert! Camping at Holmes Camp is free with nice bathrooms and hot showers, but vehicles need plates and/or stickers- all vehicles, RVs, bikes (of course), tents, etc are welcome. (More info on their blog.)
