Josh Kurpius on his chopper “The Locust” covered in mud and dirt. Perhaps this is an ‘after’ photo from him blasting through the lake?
Note the camera on his hip.

Misty Whitten’s recent photo update on her Triumph Thruxton really caught my attention, partially because her caption was simply, “Weeeeeeeeeeee!”

Josh Kurpius (photographer extraordinaire) riding through a shallow lake… giant pond…? Either way, his bike ‘The Locust’ makes it look exceptionally dramatic with the long rake of the forks. 
Aaaaand now I want a photo of me riding the Monster through an epic puddle.

This image was posted all over tumblr- I had to know where it came from. So perfect, the moving front wheel and shadow of rider superimposed on pavement. Lo- it’s a screenshot from the 6 Over preview/trailer by Wild Honey Productions.

Well done, boys. Well done. An amazing parody photo of the Babes in Borrego shot of Jenny and Nina. All in good fun!

I want to personally thank JP of the Selvedge Yard for posting this because it made my week.

[Semi-NSFW warning] Lanakila MacNaughton, photographer extraordinaire, had her gallery premier of the Women’s Motorcycle Exhibit in Portland at See See Motor Coffee on July 12th, 2013. 

Lana photographs real women who ride, stripped down (sometimes literally, always figuratively) and embracing the freedom of riding, being a woman, and having the ability to do what they damn well please. Well, at least that’s the vibe I get from it. 

Asked to photograph the ride to the show, I called up my friend Tony (who has a nice sissy bar on his bike, great for photography) and asked him if he’d let me hang off the back with my camera. No passenger pegs and a very high and small seat, it was definitely an experience. One that was totally worth it, these ladies had a blast and got all sorts of looks across town. And a few honks and hollers, of course. All in good fun. 

Make sure to check out the Womens Moto Exhibit website to read about Lana’s shows and adventures, and check back here as I will be showcasing some of my favorites from the ride over the next few days!
