Aftershock is all about backyard racing on inappropriate bikes- inspired by Dirt Quake and the Australian Flat Track scene, this video shows the muddy story of their racing glory.

Phil Hawkins is magical with his camera on the Bonneville Salt Flats- these shots were captured at the 2013 BUB Motorcycle Speed trials, which was sadly rained out on Wednesday (half way through the event). While an utter bummer for anyone trying to break world land speed records, it’s a beautiful sight for the rest of us. “There’d be no rainbows without rain” as they say.

A wet plate photograph from Paul d’Orleans (of the Vintagent), a modern ‘Rollie Free’ at Bonneville Salt Flats for BUB Motorcycle Speed Trials. BUB got rained out again this year, which makes setting land speed records impossible, but does however make for great photographs. Still, so sad I didn’t make it.

Cody Kahler was kind enough to GoPro the End of the World ride from atop his helmet! Riders left See See Motorcycles & Coffee at approximately 8:40p. Wheelies were pulled. Look at that shiny wet ground! ‘Bout 30 bikes total. (Source: https://www.youtube.com/)
My friend Adrian Capurso, who lent me the truck and RC-51 for the Bonneville Salt Flat trip, came to Portland yesterday! Today we took him for a fall ride and surprise- it ended with us getting soaked. We were able to hit some good roads before the rain and Adrian was stoked… twisties galore for the RC. We went to Multnomah Falls, drove down Historic Highway 30, and took the freeway back after it started the Portland rain.
