Trip to LA for Super Streetbike Magazine

Somehow, someway, Toe has made the cover of Super Streetbike Magazine with the FAIL bike. I mean, I knew that the idea behind the bike was totally rad…but the cover of a magazine? AWESOME! Look for it in the February issue of Super Streetbike Magazine.

For those of you who know not what the FAIL bike is…well, here it is with Josh Herrin schmobbin on it…

And here is Toe, doing what he does best:

Most of these pics were taken with the GoPro HD and my ipod…my ipod sucks at teh photoz. :(

So Toe and I drove down to Los Angeles so their photographer could do some studio work with the FAIL bike and another “Rossi Replica” bike.

It was a pretty uneventful drive…but we did get to drive through my old stomping grounds that I hadn’t seen in a LONG time.

We got to the studio and started getting stuff prepared. Toe was like a little school girl.

The “cove” was EPIC!

Another guy that was there had this sweet mural painted on his truck.

The studio had this bad ass table for people that were waiting.

We were there for a LONG time…and we decided to go cruise around Santa Monica Pier and Venice Beach for a while. I hadn’t been to either place since I was a kid…man, has it changed!

Walk-Ins Welcome!!! hahahahaha!

I wondered what treasures lay in there?

I hadn’t ridden in a few weeks, so I thought the dolphin would be perfect to get it out of my system.

I don’t even know what to say…

So…sorry if you were dissapointed that there weren’t any rad pics of us jumping streetbikes or dragging elbow or cartwheeling nekkid or anything. I just felt like posting up a few little things about our trip to LA….well…I guess I could leave you with a few parting shots of the epicness that is Toe’s FAIL bike… :D
