Note the camera on his hip.

SFRC Alley Sweeper 2013: “GET OFF MY LAWN!”

Alright, it may be slightly delayed… but I finished my video from the 2013 Sang-Froid Riding Club Alley Sweeper Urban Enduro. After the event I did a mini status update with photos of the damage to the bike and myself after wrecking it twice. Now it’s time to answer the question posed to me via instagram, facebook, AND twitter: "Can you explain to me how that’s fun?"

Sure… riding through mud, potholes, gravel, grass, and whatever else you happen upon is not for the faint of heart. It’s for the motorcyclists who like to get dirty, like to feel their back tire lose traction. Those of us who enjoy those “oh shit moments” and riding with other friends. 

The Alley Sweeper is not about property damage or disrespect to neighborhoods and communities. Motorcyclists are ALL ABOUT community!

It was a rather lovely day- Chris, Joel, Wolf and I were hanging out when it dawned on us that there were dirtbikes for riding outside. Next thing you know…

I did some riding too… but I wanted to get photos of their hooliganism. Get these two together and well- Chris and Joel had a lot of fun helping me get the photos I want. Joel launched his bike pretty close to me after a wicked slide. Luckily he is a great rider and I am light on my feet. 

It was a fun day.

Motoladies Tori and Emily George play tug-of-war over a giant puddle in this slow motion video from See See Motorcycles. Epic messiness all over the place… you know you’ve always wanted to throw a bag of flower at your friend. Just under three minutes of awesomeness and directed by Greg Schmitt.

Chills. I has them. Triumph… military style. I love how they left the mud on the tires for the photo.
