I’ll be honest…I started off the 2 day shoot a bit apprehensive about the bikes. For those of you that know me well, I’m pretty OCD about some stuff. Charging my gadgets is one of them. I start freaking out when my phone drops below 70% charge. And we were RIDING the bikes to locations…guerilla style, with the possibility of killing the battery and being left, stranded, with no food, water, or rescources to stay alive in downtown Los Angeles… This wasn’t just a shoot, this was SURVIVAL as far as I was concerned. :D
There’s a new crew in town! Rickdiculous Racing is a new school backing some names you might already know: Ken Hill, Shane Turpin, Garrett Willis, and Phil Horowitz. Adam and Josh, a father and son team whom are both avid riders as well, run the show. They’re also sponsoring new young gun racer Mario Alvarez for the 2014 AMA Supersport season!

Lawdy lawd, where do I begin? I’ve got the memory of an elephant—that’s been mortally wounded and had it’s tusks poached—so it’s not like I can actually remember many specifics about round 2…or 3 or 4 or hell, even round 7, just a few days ago.
