I’ve mostly been away from AFM the last two years. This year, I made an effort to be at all the rounds I could; two of em, to be precise. There are so many new bikes, new faces, and new names that I kinda feel like the old-out-of-place-guy. But no worries…I’ve got a camera, and I know how to fucking use it. :D
This round, Tomas came and helped me out on Saturday. I had to shoot some stuff on the west side, so I couldn’t give my full attention to AFM on Saturday until about 2:30pm… So some of these pics are Toaster’s pics. He’s pretty much a BAMF with a camera too.
Also, Kevin came and busted out the video equipment. For those of you know don’t know Kevin—most of you, I’m sure—he’s pretty much spent most of his last 10 years with 4theriders behind-the-scenes…he’s the guy that brought you your favorite motorcycle video:
So…no official word on what may be coming yet…but I’ll keep you posted. ;)
Anyhow, I just wanted to post up a few pics that I enjoyed from this weekend. It was the final round, so I feel like it deserves a small recap in photos. Enjoy. If you wanna see every single one of 6084 photos we took, then they’re online here: http://4theriders.com/pics.php?loc=/pics/2018/AFM-R7/
Andrew Lee on his #1 plate Kawasaki ZX10.
Sebastio Ferreira in turn 11.
Pretty cool seeing Alan come back…and then stack up against roughly 600hp on the Baby Ninja…note, he’s also doing the best wheelie
All these noobs these days are throwing down 55’s like they’re free!
Yamaha, Kawasaki, KTM… all piloted by some of the coolest chicks around.
Not many SV’s around these days. I remember a dozen years ago when the field was STACKED with 60 or more Suzuki SV’s out there. Kalvin is still haulin the mail on this one though!
Little bikes need love and respect too…if not, they’ll throw you on the ground every bit as fast as a 600-750-1000-yut-uggghhhh!
It gets pretty sticky around the podium just after lunch for the Formula Pacific Winner Circle celebration.
When student become masta’. :D
Teamwork. I love watching GoGo race. I love watching GoGo’s girl support him at the races.
Trophies were on point this round.
Friends lean on one other in times of speed.
Couples that race together stay together! Unless they’re on the same grid, same row…and Valentine hole-shots the hell out of Patryk…then…I’m not sure how the drive home is gonna go. :P
There was a decent showing of Pacific North West racers this round. I guess with the winter season already having arrived up there, what better place to go than Norcal to get your two wheel fix?
Father and son. Eddie with the pit board for Andrew
Thumbs up all around! Thanks for reading!
