Recent Inspiration from Easyriders

I'm hoping that my next series of motorcycle images begins to look something like these. I'm hoping to be able to dive deeper into the culture and show it in my images.

This image makes me look forward to Daytona Bike Week. I've been trying to help Jd figure out how he's going to get his bike ready to leave next monday but I starting to think he should do a burn out like this before he puts on the new rubber.

If I want to make images like this I might have to cuddle up with Jd on the Yamaha. Hopefully my new and very small canon point and shoot camera with help with the riding images. I need to do some flash tests but I'm probably going to need to use some tape to defuse it a little.

So with this image I'm more interested with the bike then I am with the photograph. The front brake set up this guy has is unlike anything I've ever seen. I like how clean it makes the handle bars

So this image is one of my recent favorites. I'm not exactly sure why, maybe it's that I'm jealous of the guy's tattoos but whatever it is, it makes me come back to this image again and again. I found the image in an Easyriders article about Sturgis (maybe that's another reason I like it) and decided to look up the photographer.

I found Michael Lichter's website ( but I haven't had a chance to really check out all of the images. But he must be doing something right. I'd love to be photographing major rallies and having my work in Easyriders.
