MotoVentures: A Day in the Dirt Photo Page

by

Not too long ago, I was invited out to Gary LaPlante’s MotoVentures compound for a day of off-road riding with the crew from Southern California Motorcycles. The excursion was a Christmas gift from owner Tom Hicks to the staff at his Triumph, Ducati, Victory and Polaris dealership.  (READ THE STORY HERE!)

It was fantastic day tearing up the trails at the 300-acre facility near Anza, Ca. — right up until I started crashing … over and over again. I got tired from the first two times hauling the WR450 out of a creek bed and a sand wash and it was all downhill (figuratively) from there. And, the So Cal Motorcycles crew looked like they had a blast. Coming off the bleak stink of dismal cycle sales in 2009, it was probably a nice little energy boost. 

One of the employees, service writer Trevor Dyck, brought along his film camera and shot some really nice analog pics of the day. I forgot how much I like the graininess and realistic feel of photos shot on film. Here’s a bunch of them from the trip. If you get a chance, check out Trevor’s other photos on his website http://trevordyck.com.
