Blueribbon Coalition's Sharetrails 30th Anniversary Event

Butler Maps was the recent title sponsor of the Sharetrails 30th anniversary event. The Pirate Cove Resort on the banks of the Colorado River in Needles, California served as a base from which riders could explore nearly 100 miles of desert trails outlined by the event. Two wheels or four, the Sharetrails event lived up to its name.

I headed out with Butler Maps' founder, Court Butler, to capture some of the event both from the air, and behind the bars of a KTM 1190.

BMW G310R World Launch

Los Angeles played host to the world launch of BMW’s new G310R. I had to take a few risks to get the necessary shots, but Santa showed up later so it all worked out.


Australia ranks among the 10 least populated locations on the planet… leaving much of the country left open as an adventure rider’s paradise.

The Azores

Exploring a rugged island in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, checking out Touratech’s Rambler concept bike, and doing a little surfing on a borrowed board. Azores was an amazing experience.

Travelling light on the Azores

Fürs verregnete Wochenende: Die Azoren hatte sich das Touratech-Team als Ziel einer besonderen Tour ausgesucht. Zweck der Reise war, die Touratech R 1200 GS Rambler zu testen und nebenbei zu zeigen, dass man auch ohne viel Gepäck Spaß am Unterwegssein haben kann. Eine weitere Maschine aus der Abteilung Research & Development bei Touratech, eine modifizierte BMW F 800 GS, war ebenfalls mit von der Partie. Pilotiert von Fotograf Jon Beck, fügte sich dieser Umbau nahtlos in das Konzept des leichten Reisens ein – nur die Surfausrüstung musste mit dem Auto transportiert werden.
