Spike’s Ride: A New Take on Moto Videos


You may remember the photo I posted of the boys working in the garage. After our friend AJ wrecked his 2010 Kawasaki ZX-6R on the 60 freeway near Riverside, CA, his bike was collecting cob webs for nearly a year before funds were finally available to repair it. He brought it over to our pad and we worked on it for about another three months, doing a little bit at a time until it was street ready once again. Our friend AJ, a.k.a. Spike was chomping at the bit to see it put back together and you should have seen the smile on his face once the bike was running. The frame and front wheel had to be taken to Doctor John in Anaheim, CA, to be straightened and re-aligned. The wiring harness and entire front end also had to be replaced along with other miscellaneous parts. Finally, with the bike in one piece, our friend Tavares Ashanti, a videographer, producer, music manager and photographer, put this little video together of Spike’s first ride back on the bike. If you knew everything that Spike has been through since then, you’d realize how much of a mile stone this was for him.

This is unlike other moto videos you’ve seen before, taking an alternative and creative approach to amplifying normal Go Pro footage. But this short vid is not normal, by any means. Check it out and let us know what you think.
