There are a lot of moto people that take themselves way too seriously. They feel they need the latest 200HP rocket out of Italy  or Japan to satiate their need for pushing the envelope. The boys at BA Motors in Signal Hill are not these kinds of people.  Anything under 50cc will do. My invitation deemed that Jah and Steve McQueen, the official supreme leaders had deemed  Sunday July 27th  as the official start of the Mini-Moto GP Season for 2014. I’m not one to fuck with Jah or Steve McQueen, so I headed that direction, it was serious earthquake weather in L.A. anyway, the hot muggy and still kind, the kind people get blasted by lightning on the beach… So, no better place to be than on the freeway heading south with bad British Engineering between my legs to watch The BA Moto Mini GP races.

Sailor Jerry

I recently directed what could be called a dream commercial for Sailor Jerry Rum. The creative brief had vintage motorcycles, campfires and long desert roads. To get away from the typically over shot Joshua Tree area I scouted the Salton Sea, a giant ecological mistake in deep within the Inland Empire of Southern California. We cast an amazing cast of real people that truly lived the life; Joey Indiri of Venice Beach, Jenny parry from Laurel Canyon, Mike Beauchard that lives in Redonondo, eastside photographer Eric Hobbs and the ubiquitous Imogen Lehtonen.

Patina The Deus Gripping Glove by Harold's Gear


I have to admit it was an impulse buy. After taking delivery of my Triumph Scrambler I popped into Deus in Venice to get some inspiration on customizing my newly acquired bike. The Deus Gripping Gloves sat protected in their glass case like a piece of jewelry or fine china. After I tried them on I knew they had to be mine. The Napa cowhide with elasticized palm and finger stitching fit my hand like no other glove ever had. That subtle elasticity kept the leather from bunching on the grips giving the gloves a fit and feel like no other. That was 9 months and 10k miles ago and like most quality goods these have only become nicer with age. The natural oils in from my hands naturally darkened the leather into a nicely worn patina.
