After four weeks and more than a dozen tracks, the second leg of the Good Times and Dirtbikes Tour has ended at our Georgia headquarters. The trusty Mighty Whitey got us through another trip safely. We pulled in late last night, but our work is far from over. No, I’m not talking about the next few hours that will be spent cleaning out our temporary home, but all the content that we will be busting out now that we are somewhat stationary. In addition to a full 800 MX gallery and a couple of interviews conducted from last week, the Fast Farms galleries are also on deck to go live this week.
We sure are missing the 800 MX wolfpack right about now..
I was only part of the tour for two weeks, but I got to visit some awesome tracks in beautiful locations. Doublin Gap, Sleepy Hollow, 800 MX and Fast Farms are officially among some of my favorite tracks that I’ve been able to shoot at. All of them had some great spots to capture riders at their fastest, and the scenery took the opportunities for photos to another level. I have to say, the East Coast is where it’s at.
Speaking of beautiful tracks, our weekend at Fast Farms gave me the chance to get some of my favorite shots on this tour. It didn’t matter where the sun was, there was always a section of the track that was perfectly lit, and no matter where I turned there was a great backdrop for the shots. Beyond the track, the experience at FF was one of a kind. It’s too often that when the racing wraps up, everyone heads back into their motorhomes and they are done for the day. The crew at Fast Farms made sure there were plenty of activities for all ages. On Friday it was the wheelie contest and slow bike race, followed by a movie screening. On Saturday they held a luau and served a great free dinner with BBQ, burgers, and cupcakes, yum! To top it all off, they held a dance contest that night where the people with the best moves won prizes. While I may have been too tired to really participate, Kaity went out and got some fun shots of the night. You’ll see more in the Fast Farms Saturday gallery coming out this week.
Tomorrow marks the beginning of our journeys home. Crane and Kaity are headed back to California before they turn right around to go to their hometown in Illinois. I opted to head back to my hometown in Texas before heading back to California.. where I will turn around and go to Loretta’s. The travel never ends, coincidentally neither does the fun. The tour may be over, but keep an eye out for photos and videos coming out over the next couple of weeks. We’ll keep you posted on when our next adventure is. You never know, we may be coming to your home track!
