I've met two new riding buddies. Khoi Bui and Henry Li (click on thier names to check em out.) Its cool these guys are into photography as well, they're much better than I am, and have far superior gear than I have. We all rode out to Pescadero CA. this weekend, and stopped anywhere and everywhere in between SF and Pigeon Point. Here are the photos I manage to take while distracted by all the fun.

Scouting The Bay

Niro and I cruised the bay Sunday scouting locations for our next project. We took the Blackmagic, Dslr and Drone out to shoot B-roll. I can't tell you much about the project now, but I'm excited for whats to come. Here are a few photos taken throughout the day. Some of them are taken on the Iphone7. The quality produced by the 7 makes me want to sell all my gear. Ha.

ps. trying new color correction.

UP FOR THE CHALLENGE

I've had my eye on the Scrambler Solo Seat for awhile now. I wanted it for the rear rack so I can motorcycle camp this summer. After months of monitoring craigslist I finally found a great deal. I wanted a used seat so I could learn to reupholster it. I don't know much about upholstery but figured I'm up for the challenge. The thought of having a custom motorcycle seat seems rad. It'll definitely set my bike apart, and make the value go up right...? (joke about the latter)

It was a difficult decision because I was torn between making the seat black pleats or burgundy pleats. I've always been a fan of the blacked out look, but I'm glad I went with the burgundy (some call it oxblood.) I'm quite happy with the new seat and grip combo. What are your thoughts?

Don't be fooled by the video. I failed twice. This was the third try. Here is my first attempt:

Anyway. enjoy the video and photos of the new look. 

PS. I got rid of the hideous stock rear fender. Replaced it with the Motobox Slimline. I think it makes the tail-end so SICK! Get yours here.
