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… Continue Reading »

Trouble in San Diego- early this morning a light colored Cadillac sedan with a male driver crossed over into oncoming traffic and hit a motorcyclist. The 32 year old motorcyclist was killed, his passenger injured, and the caddy fleed the scene.  Keep an eye out for a white or light colored four door Cadillac with fron driver-side damage and call the Police if you see the asshole. I wish there was more info on the suspect, but alas… that’s all there is. Original article on CBS8 »

Why We Ride Documentary: Coming Soon

It took me a while to sit down and watch this trailer, despite multiple people sending it to me. Why? I’m not sure. Perhaps because I felt capturing “why we ride” in a trailer is impossible, and in a full length film difficult yet. But also because I felt that I needed to devote a minute of my undivided attention to the footage, and forcing myself to do that is sometimes difficult these days.  I finally pressed play and have to admit- I got goosebumps, there may have been some tears. They… Continue Reading »

[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… Continue Reading »

Motorcyclist Struck by Lightning on I5

Be careful out there, guys! Depending on where you are, the weather is changing rapidly and it’s been kind of a doozy for riding. In the Pacific Northwest for the last couple weeks you could ride your bike down to meet some friends at a restaurant and it’ll have been sunny and 75° fahrenheit (~23.9° celsius) all day- you’ll walk out an hour and a half later and it’ll be pouring buckets with thunder and lightning! A 60 y/o motorcyclist was struck by lightning this morning around 9:30a on the I5 freeway in Chehalis,… Continue Reading »
