On Empty Streets

“Maybe there is no Heaven. Or maybe this is all pure gibberish - a product of the demented imagination of a lazy drunken hillbilly with a heart full of hate who has found a way to live out where the real winds blow—to sleep late, have fun, get wild, drink whisky, and drive fast on empty streets with nothing in mind except falling in love and not getting arrested...”

- Hunter S. Thompson

Back in August, Kyra and I borrowed a pair of Victory Motorcycles (the mid-sized Octane and a full-dress Cross Country), then proceeded to pack wetsuits, swim fins and an inflatable surf mat onto the bikes before making our way from Southern California to Seattle, riding waves and windy roads along the way. The story about our adventure was recently published by Outside Magazine (read it here). The number of photos Outside was able to publish was limited to just six shots, so I thought I'd share an assortment of images that both Kyra and myself took while riding up the West Coast.


Everyone has been at home watching Stranger Things. I've been listening to this shit on my motorcycle.

Can't say for certain...

Just spent a week in the woods filming a short sci-fi motorcycle thriller movie. Stay tuned...

Been listening to a lot of this guy lately... Also, this video is excellent.

Can't divulge the details, or too many images for that matter, but basically we've been riding a pair of Victory Motorcycles from Southern California to Seattle, with inflatable surf mats, wetsuits and swim fins strapped to the tail. Check the #BagginWaves tag for a few photos, and stay tuned for the full story on Outside!

Currently obsessing over this sorta shit. Dyna culture, Harley wheelies, loud paint and even louder bikes...

You Should Probably Go To Puerto Rico

If America is Budweiser, then Puerto Rico is Bud Light Lime; the lighter, maybe I’ll have one-too-many, Caribbean step-sister of the USA. It’s affordable, relatively speaking, offers a wide array of cultural oddities and a plethora of tropical treats that make a box of Mike & Ike’s look like kid’s play. And so with that said, allow me to explain why Puerto Rico should be your next ‘adventurous vacation’ destination.

The Plastic Camera Project

It happened at the Hard-Off, what the Japanese would call a thrift store, but what I would describe as a lightly-used shopping experience, where last year's Omega Submariner and DSLR cameras go to die. Or to find a new home if you're a frugal American looking for a steal. Anyhow. While browsing the used camera inventory, my eyes crossed paths with a bright blue plastic camera sitting on a shelf. Round1 was written atop the hot-shoe, and a price tag with a meager sum was siting beside it. Something like $10 when all was said and done. I had to have it. What the fuck it was, however, I had no idea.

Japan is notorious for gifts and gift giving, so when we discovered this was a prize someone might win at the local Round1 bowling alley, it all started to make sense. It came complete with cardboard box, filters, a flash and an instruction manual... in Japanese. I picked up a few rolls of cheap 35mm film and fired away. I took the camera to Italy a few months later where I covered the efforts of a few friends racing in the Sardegna Rally. After that it traveled with me on more than a few surf trips in Japan, to include a week long stay on the Izu Peninsula. Before departing Bousou Island, I entrusted my new toy to my friend Rabbitt. I instructed him to shoot a few rolls and share the shots. We'll see what happens. What follows, however, are a handful of photographs I took with the camera in Italy and elsewhere.
