  1. Great shots in this post of some incredible riding spots! We don't get out much beyond our own neighborhood, but when we can I like to lug some bikes to, or rent, in Newport Beach, CA. Back in the '80s my mom's boyfriend took us from Palm Springs to Balboa/Newport and I cruised the boardwalk on my red and gold 1980 Diamond Back. I had such a great time that I still like to make the trek from AZ to the beach for this ride. I have taken my Nurse Betty White and Blue, 2007 OM Flyer on this route back during a Huntington/Newport cruise related to a BMX Society Reunion and I have taken my red 1999 Torker on the ride as well. It's a little small for me, but that big-but seat makes all the difference. This isn't my bike--I shot it at the 2014 Reunion (can anyone claim it?), but I had a one just like it.
  2. Finally got all the editing done in the Ernie Alexander Roast--you will find 150 shots below. What a great time! First off, I had no idea how awesome the Valley Relics Museum was--I would have gone just for that! Wish I had known about that place sooner. As for the roast, I didn't know what to expect. I had seen them before, but wasn't sure how a bunch of OS-BMX guys were going to do compared to professional comics. Well, the whole thing was actually very interesting and very funny! Everyone did an incredible job. Of course John Palfreman stole the show! Bottom line, it was a great event and I'm glad I made the trek from AZ and I hope to do it again next year!
  3. Thanks Steve--that was my goal, to preserve this great event! I love looking back at my old event coverage and reliving the incredible shows you put on.
  4. Aaaaaaannnnnd that's all folks! Download them, share them with your friends, just leave the watermark, please! 8) I hope you all enjoy seeing these images as much as I enjoyed taking them.
  5. When I heard the BMX Society Show and Reunion was happening this year I knew I had to go--and I'm glad I did! I really enjoyed the location and all the sick bikes that were on display. Most of all I enjoyed catching up with old BMX buds and making some new ones! Thanks once again to Steve Brothers for putting on this amazing event (I am sure he's sick of hearing it by now, LOL). And I know there were a lot of other people who helped make the event happen--THANK YOU ALL! Like I told Steve at the end of the show--this event makes me happy! This year I was unable to lug the studio to continue the BMX Legends Portrait Project so I just covered the event. What follows will be 300 edited pics I took during several passes. There will be some duplicates, but for those who couldn't be there, all these shots will hopefully make you feel like you were there! Enjoy!
