Broadford Bike Bonanza 2019

The Shannons Insurance Broadford Bike Bonanza is an annual bike weekend held at the Broadford State Motorcycle Complex for all bikes Pre 1993. This years event was held over the easter long weekend. After many years of saying i would go I finally went and was not disappointed. What an eclectic mix of bikes on display across MX track, Road Circuit, trials, enduro and the flat track speedway. Here is just a small sample of what i captured during the few hours i was there. It’s been a very dry Australian summer and I feel the pictures really represent that dusty, grassroots racing feel.

Aprilia Australia Racers Day 2019

2019 Aprilia RSV4 Factory 1100 Launch at Phillip Island

Early in April i had the pleasure of not only riding my favourite brand of motorcycle around my favourite racetrack but also managed to capture some photos from the Australian debut of the new Aprilia RSV4 Factory 1100. What an absolute weapon this 217hp machine is and to be on track and see just how much faster it is compared to the old model was a treat.

I didn't get much time behind the lens as i was having too much fun on track so i have posted just a few of my favourite shots from the day. Aprilia have really knocked it out of the park with this bike and put on one of the best Track Days at the Island i have attended.

Custom Yamaha TRX Photoshoot

Does it get anymore customized than this? I don't think there is one part of this 1996 Yamaha TRX 850 that has not been modified.  It starts with extensive engine work - high comp pistons + flatside carbs and head work - Triumph 675R Ohlins front end and brakes - CBR1000RR rims -Race Centre modified R6 Ohlins rear shock - Custom hand made exhaust - custom subframe - chopped and modified tank - Harley headlight - Ducati Master cylinder. The list goes on and on and is absolutely incredible.

I had the chance to shoot this amazing bike for Johnny Taylor. Jonny is an accomplished road racer who built the bike himself over 4  years. Everything on the bike had a purpose to make it go harder, handle and stop better (plus it also looks sexy).  This bike will be featured in an upcoming issue of RetroBike magazine in October, i'm pretty excited to see my photos in print.

In the mean time you can read more about Johnnys bike over at Return of the Cafe Racer in their writeup on his bike HERE

Local Road Racer - Promotional Photoshoot

Luke is a local road racer who i met through a mutual friend earlier this year. A great guy and a passionate rider he will be racing the Hartwell Series this year. His ZX10 was built by the legends at Race Centre who have made many go fast ZX10's over the years. Although the fairings are a bit rough this is one quick machine. Luke approached me to create some images of himself and his bike for his sponsor for promotional uses. It was great to spend a couple of hours with Luke talking about racing and bikes. I hope i can head out on track with Luke later this year and see how much his Kawasaki will destroy my Aprilia down the Phillip Island Straight. 

Here are some of my favourite images from this shoot. Good luck to Luke on your season mate.
