Thom Jones, Revolution Motorcycle Magazine

A couple weeks ago I rode my chopper down to Seattle and back in a day to shoot Thom Jones (@semigoods) '45 Magnum he built for Born Free 9. This Winter issue was just released and I'm pretty stoked on how it turned out. Thom really doesn't hold back in his interview and I love that shit. Take a look and pick up a copy at any Chapters/Indigo/Wal-Mart/London Drugs etc etc.... You can also buy an online version through their site: HERE

~~In this issue there is also a 10 page article on The Dream Roll written by an attendee from Montreal. It looks awesome and there's a couple shots of my dumb face so don't miss it!! ~~

HIGHNOON SCRAMBLE 10

On October 29th, the TENTH High Noon Scramble went down at the end of # 6 road: The Richmond Dunes. The race is a multiple-lap loop around some sketchy obstacles, jumps, hill climbs, and burms. The categories include mono shock and vintage. Us spectators don't really care too much about all that though, we just love watching these dudes dress up and eat shit in the sand. Overall, some highlights included:

  • Mike Babs Goul head costume
  • Nicks Maico 250
  • The EZ TV Broadcast crew
  • The trike dude that smashed into Elliots new truck
  • Keddie lighting off a firework when he won runner-up
  • The snowmobile over-heating and then proceeding to hit the jump over and over again
  • The beer pong crew
  • Myk Roc
  • The dude who didn't bring a costume and was forced into riding in his underwear
  • Bri's Filth Mode cookies
  • Some random girl who gave me a cheddar smokey
  • The winners belt
  • Curtis wresting the winner (WWE style)

All in all, the event was awesome as it is every year. The new belt that has been made for future years will be up for grabs next Halloween season... Who will take it next time!!?? For now, here's some 35mm film photos I shot on my Olympus Stylus:

The September 2017 issue of HOG Magazine has recently launched. There is a 8 page spread I wrote and provided some photos for on the hometown trip I did with my Dad back in July. HOG Magazine is Harley Davidson owned mag and you can pick it up for free at any Harley Davidson dealership. As of September, our article is only in Canada but they could possibly run it in the next issue of HOG in the states, I'll be sure to let you know if it does!
