I put on all my gear and took the Honda RC-51 out of the truck today… had some fun on riding on the salt flats. Set up my camera on timer for this shot… used my gloves for a tripod. ;P
Wheelie Wednesday w/ Chris Herrin
I spent the week between Christmas and New Year in Portland making sure I made time to see my friends and family. Chris Herrin, one of my best buddies, and I got together for a day to hang out and play with the motorcycles at his place out in the boonies about 40 mins from Portland. It was a lot colder than expected (in the 20s) so after he taught me to do a burnout, he rode out to the street for a couple wheelies to keep the cabin fever at bay. Naturally, I busted out my DSLR to snap a pic of him against the glorious sunset.
He calls this lil green Kawasaki his burnout bike- as you can see from the rear wheel that’s got a big flat spot from burning rubber in his garage. Since Chris lives a ways out of town, it’s often a lot colder out there than in the metro area, and getting out of the house during winter for a real ride can be a bit difficult between the rain and ice of Portland winters. Hence the burning rubber and spontaneous wheelies.
