My work piloting a camera-bike sidecar during the 2017 Veterans Charity Ride to Sturgis© led me to adding a story to a photo essay in Inked Magazine. I chose 1st-person present-tense to capture the emotion and roller coaster ride of thoughts and moments shared on the journey.
"I used to pride myself on how fast I was in the canyons. I was a member of the illustrious “Primer Grey Crew.” To be in the PGC you had to be damn fast and also own a bike that was not considered top-notch machinery. The bike needed..."
