On board with Michael Spain-Smith on his MDM GSXR750 during the TPM GP Moto

2012 Japanese Superbike Shootout - Road Test
2012 Honda CBR1000RR vs 2012 Suzuki GSX-R1000 vs 2012 Yamaha YZF-R1 vs 2012
It has been a couple years since we last did a Japanese literbike shootout,
because, frankly, the field has been quite stagnant for a while (save for
Kawasaki's total revamp of the ZX-10R last year). It took them another
year, but Honda, Suzuki and Yamaha have all tweaked their respective
contenders for 2012 - the CBR1000RR, GSX-R1000 and YZF-R1, have significant
changes, while Kawasaki returns for 2012 with the same
traction-control-equipped machine it introduced last year, confident of its

Supermoto Police Chase
The cop was lit up with sirens on the way to an emergency. The rider with
his music blasting, unaware pulled out in front of the cop rippin down the
Snake. The cop was just a short distance behind the rider so everyone
thought it was a police chase. Even funnier, the rider pulled over to come
up for a second run and the cop continued on. Everyone thought the rider
hid as the cop passed. When the rider came back he had no idea what was
Yamaha R1 - Sparks and Nice Save
Mulholland Highway in Los Angeles has been a popular location for
motorcycles & fast cars for decades. Car and motorcycle clubs are regular
visitors every weekend. Jay Leno can often be found at the famous Rockstore
and at a view point called Lookout talking with fellow motor enthusiasts.
Crashes are common as well as a heavy police presence on most weekends. The
Snake is a two mile section of Mulholland above the Rockstore. Riders
usually will make multiple runs allowing me to move from corner to corner
when assembling rider videos. The speed limit is 45 mph, most riders are
not going much over that so the majority of tickets are crossing the line,
wheelies or equipment violations. Bicycles are up here all the time but
motorcycles and bikes seem to do fine together as long as the cyclists are
willing to stay to the right. Cars passing them are a bigger problem since
there is no shoulder and most turns are blind.
I mainly shoot on the last corner coming up because I can see much of the
road and photogs are expected. The turn gets it's fair share of crashes
but people crash other places also just no one is filming. The top corner I
shoot seem to average one crash every couple weeks in the summer, out of
many hundreds of riders. 911 emergency services are rarely called and
accidents are seldom reported since most riders do not get injured
severely. Google Street View - http://goo.gl/wsMi
