Suffering from a wicked crash near Chamonix/Mont Blanc in the French Alps.. My Leatt neckbrace worked as advertised when I landed on my head after flying of my bike and doing a spread eagle combined with a nice flip into the dirt about 30 feet down the mountain.........
Kosuke at Sunrise Cycles does some very nice work. Look him up at WWW.SUNRISECYCLESLA.COM or visit him on Sunset Boulevard, in the Echo Park/Silver Lake area.
I did a photoshoot with Ryan Reed of REEDSRIDEDESIGNS.COM a little while ago. He used to work at So cal Speedshop and started his own shop in his hometown of Corona, CA. last year. Amongst some very nice other stuff, like hot rods and VW's, he built this cool cruiser for his friend Glen Maurice... It's hard to see in the picture, but I liked this overview shot so I thought I'd post it here..

Second place overall at the Belgian Grand Prix today... Too bad he crashed in the first moto while being in first. He could've had a big chance of winning his 3rd GP of this season... These photos were taken a few weeks ago in Belgium, at the Maxi Freeride event.
A few more shots from France... We regularly visit Saint Tropez and this last time we met Marco Rivolta and his girlfriend Sonia, the owners of the Battaglia Fashion store in the center of town. We had a great time with them, drinking wine in front of the store, and eating tapas at the cantina. Marco also owns a couple very nice bikes, built by AQG Motociclette from Italy... A Buell powered hardtail streetracer, another hardtail, powered by a 93 inch S&S Shovel motor, and a Panhead powered softail to take the lady for a spin.. Check out marco at www.lespetroleurs.blogspot.com or at www.battagliafashion.blogspot.com
More pics later...
I spent a day with Rene Astengo.. We cruised his '55 Nomad all over L.A.. It had been in storage for about 4 years!! Ran like a dream.
