Our focus is
on motorcycles, motorcycle photography, and motorcycle travel stories.
I travel all over the world with a camera, and I have a
great collection of moto photos. Just about everything on here
is for sale...and if you need something you don't see, give us a call and
I can probably get it for you. If you want to drop me a line just
to say hi, shoot me a note via e-mail.
My name's Joe, I'm an engineer, and I guess
I'm what you might call a serious rider. I've ridden my motorcycles
in a lot of places, and I've been doing this for a long time. My
favorite riding is in Mexico's Baja peninsula, and my favorite motorcycles are

Classics, Rider, RoadBike, Easy Riders, and Iron Horse
magazines, and more than a few books). But that's not what this site

Enough talk...let's get to the good stuff!
Videos (ah, these are fun....we'll change and update them

150cc California Scooter!

Here's a recent street scene in Bangkok (hey, we get around)...grab

And doing it with an incredible crew,
including J. Brandon, Arlene Battishill, John Welker, and world-renowned
international motorcycle traveler Simon Gandolfi (that's Simon in the
photo to the left).

to break them," Steve said.
