FAVORITE TEST BIKE PHOTOS, 2014
From Dirt Bike –
Some of our favorite photos of the past year are on display here, along with inside info on how and why.
Mark Tilley is the rider in about 75% of our test photos. He builds the bikes, tests them, writes about them and sometimes takes photos of them. He’s a multi-talented man. But until recently, he had no idea that his greatest talent was jumping and wheelying 600-pound adventure bikes in the dirt. He’s using a little log as a boost in this photos, but that’s just because we insisted. For this photo of the Suzuki V-Strom 1000, we used four flashes, several of which are pointed at background elements. Nikon D800, ISO 1600, f6.3 @ 1/250
This is a gang of troublemakers assembled for our big adventure bike shootout. On the sides are Tom White and Jeff Rambo. Cutting thought the middle is the wheelying duo of Justin Jones and Mark Tilley. Everyone was scared.
