I am a super passionate guy who loves to tell stories about motorcycles and photography. I am blessed to make a living doing what I love. Here you will find my articles, opinion pieces, and ramblings regarding these topics. All opinions and statements are my own, they are genuine, and remain uninfluenced by outside parties.

Some articles featured here are syndicated from publications where I am a regular contributor. 

All photos are typically my own but occasionally I have some really talented friends and photographers shooting my ugly mug. In those instances, proper photo credit is given.

We're doing a video with a track designed American muscle car and I am going to see if I can make my dad puke for his 6oth birthday. Do you want to come shoot this craziness? "Yeah, I'...

We all have bucket lists. Places we wish to travel or things we want to do in life before we pass on. High on my own list was a trip to italy. I envisioned myself simply enjoying delicious food, drinking wine, and taking in the countryside via motorcycle or scooter. Nothing major. Last week I got that chance---if only for a day---and it nothing sho...

Destination: the lovely Spanish city of Marbella, right along the Mediterranean Sea, for the MV Agusta Brutale 800 World Press Launch. I'm killing the 15 hour fligh...

A Month with the 2016 Kawasaki Z800 - Full Bike Review

January 19, 2016  •  Leave a Comment
Naked bikes/streetfighters are svelte, sexy, aggressive, fast, and oh so much fun in the city and back roads. Primed for wheelies when hopping on any freeway or jumping off the line at a stop light (not recommended, but easy to engage), nimble and perfect for splitting lanes during times of congestion, and delightful in the canyons or on the track...

Living (and Dying) with the Royal Enfield Continental GT - Full Bike Review

December 03, 2015  •  Leave a Comment
There is no denying that cafe racers continue to trend in the United States' major urban areas. Cruisers still dominate overall sales, but you can't throw a rock in Los Angeles, New York or San Fransisco without hitting a Bonneville, vintage CB, or BMW. Since this is the current trend, a little company (well, not little) out of India named Royal E...

Mini-Moto LeMans - The UMRA 24 Hour Endurance Race

November 24, 2015  •  Leave a Comment
It’s 4pm, 92 degrees, and I'm in 3rd gear barreling down a dirt road at 70 mph somewhere in California's Apple Valley. The All Wheel Symmetrical drive on my Impreza is fully engaged as I loosely skate along the arid surface. Minimal inputs keep me in control. More aggressive inputs force controlled drifts through a couple of corners. I figure befor...

When I would tool around tow...

June 11, 2015  •  Leave a Comment
There’s an article going around authored by Damon Lavernic in Lanesplitter asking Motorcyclists to stop being sanctimonious assholes. I happen to agree with almost every word of his article, but there are some points that need to be added. Here are my two cents... I ride, commute and split lanes every day in perhaps the most offensive “use your ph...

June 09, 2015  •  Leave a Comment
Where café racer meets cruiser, the Star Bolt C-Spec is a fun new take on the wildly successful Bolt and Bolt R-Spec. I had the opportunity to get some saddle time with the C-Spec over the course of a couple weeks. This won’t be a huge tech review of the bike, there are plenty of articles on specs out there for the gear heads to nerd out over…this...
