Last summer I stumbled upon a hobby that I really enjoyed. I started filming motorcycle rides in my area. I felt like the project was something I wanted to persue so last summer (2013) I took the project a step further. I filmed 5 episodes in the Northwest including resort destinations, and rides that locals would like to see when visiting.
During the winter I was able to precure several sponsors, (good only no money) from Carhartt, Harrah's Casino, and many smaller establishments that comped us rooms, meals, and entertainment.
