We're proud to announce our 8th ANNUAL Photography Annual!!! THE DIYCLINE


It's been 8 years since we started producing our own "annual" books! 

That's a solid DIY footprint by any measure. No advertisements. No sponsors. Just our own amateur photography collected and assembled in book form.... you remember print don't you? Let me introduce you to this years book; 100 pages, full color, perfect binding, photography from Nov/Dec 2016 all the way through Dec 2017.

This year we decided to call the book what it is, THE DIY'CLINE because over those 8 years, we've seen a lot of grassroots simply disappear or die. That, sadly is a negative... which in turn makes us value and cherish the positive all the much more. Why we carry a torch, and a camera, to the small events, shows, parties, runs, and rides. Why we build giant Brobots to burn in the desert and spend the time cooking and donating free chili dinners to events. Why we skip the bigger stuff that's covered enough elsewhere. Why we sing songs about Kool Aid. Why we keep keeping on!

Quick rundown on where we took pictures this year; The Alien Run 2017, Run To The Hills, The Beaver Moon Campout, Giant Rock Run No.6, El Diablo Run, Kitmas 2016 and 2017, bands, gigs, halloween parties, weddings, birthdays, Taco Moto Tuesdays (and there was a lot of them) and the musically infused Taco Moto Saturdays... and throw in some drag queens too. Imagine all of our blog and social media accounts throwing up on your face in your sleep. That's this years book. Sounds Yummy right?


And, there's been more than a few people asking for us to reprint the BOBBY shirt, so here's your wish come true!!! (remember, we only screen super small runs of stuff, so see it now, you might not see it tomorrow...)

FLASHBACK 10 YEARS AGO ...

So just over ten years ago, I started regularly carrying a camera on the road and taking pictures at the various "chopper" events, shows, parties, etc. Over that time I've seen some pretty big changes (which personally I think suck ass, but without preaching too hard against the corporate influences now encompassing almost every aspect of the scene) from time to time, I'll be posting some shots that essentially are "ten years ago" retrospectives. You'll definitely recognize some of the bikes I've taken pictures of if you look close enough the next time you go to any of the "big shows." And over the last decade they might have changed, owners or looks, probably both, or maybe they've pretty much stayed true to their original builds? We'll see...

 In 2007 I met a regular guy named Matt from England who threw some parties and invited me to tag along. I met another local guy named Chris (who, in his own right, influenced me to start blogging). These pictures are from when me and Chris (aka Blue Collar Moto) rode down to Shakespeare Pub & Grille to attend a DICE magazine release party.
