STURGIS FOR 2020… I have to sit this one out :/

If I could say I was a happy camper, I’d be telling a lie. I can’t attend Sturgis 2020 for obvious reasons. I wish all of my co-workers and friends that are going the best. So, to try to keep House of Choppers Nation current, I have hundreds of friends sending in images as the rally begins plus we will be using images from social media (hand picked & credited) as I see images that will attract your attention. For this year, that;s the best I can do, but 2021, watch out, I’ll be in Sturgis for three weeks for sure.

LET ME INTRODUCE FELLOW MOTO-PHOTOGRAPHER, POLINA KRASNOVA FROM MOSCOW

Post by Jack McIntyre

I travel all over the USA shooting motorcycles, lifestyle, and rallies… have been since the 90’s. I’ve met so many great photographers and editors along the way but every now and then, I’m drawn to what I call, “the younger media people that will carry the torch”. What I mean is, I often wonder who will keep this lifestyle that we all love, visible for future generations. We are all getting older, it’s exciting to see who will keep the public informed about the motorcycle lifestyle for the future.

Meet Polina Krasnova from Moscow. We attended the MOTO EXPO in Verona Italy together back in January of 2020. I didn’t know her, nor she me, but once home in the US, I located her on facebook and began to realize just how wonderful of a photographer she is. Her images, and eye for setting up content, surpasses the average young photographer, and her ability to travel the world shows a spirit that most don’t possess. She has a media company of her own know as Bikers Insider.

Please check out her facebook and instigram pages to see just what I am talking about, and keep an eye out for future blog posts, hopefully Polina will share some of her magical images with us all.

LOOKING BACK AT STURGIS 2019

Post & Images by Jack McIntyre

As with every Sturgis Rally I attend & shoot, 2019 was one to look back at. As you can guess, my preferred venue is the Buffalo Chip. I’ve become close friends with the folks at the Chip, and because of that, I’m able to watch how year by year, they expand the possibilities of their grounds with the most incredible entertainment, convenience of daily needs, bars & restaurants, fuel available on site, and so much more.

I wanted to add this post this morning as reminder of last year along with other past years, just CLICK HERE and it will take you to all of our Sturgis Rally galleries. Here are a few images to get your interest cooking…

 

BILLY LANE’S, SONS OF SPEED, DAYTONA BIKEWEEK 2020

Post & Images by Jack McIntyre

Best explained by this, Sons of Speed, created by Billy Lane of Choppers Inc, is a motorcycle race inspired by early 20th-century board-track racing. Open to the public, races occur regularly at Daytona Bike Week, Biketoberfest and Sturgis Motorcycle Rally.

I’ve shot several Sons of Speed events from Daytona to Sturgis. The images are in the appropriate galleries by destination. CLICK HERE for this past race during Daytona Bikeweek 2020.

Great time at Arlen Fatland’s 50th anniversary party, Daytona Bikeweek 2020

Post & Images by Jack McIntyre in behalf of Iron Trader News

We all just attended Arlen Fatland’s 50th anniversary party at what is now Billy Lane’s home for Choppers Inc on Main Street in Daytona with Rod Woodruff, Jack & Lynn Deagazio, Toni Woodruff, Marilyn Stemp, Jeff Zielinski, Cory Ness, Christine LePera, john marcella, Jody Perewitz, Zach Ness, Dave Perewitz, Timothy Remus, Billy Lane, Erin Lane, and many more. I wanted to share all of these images because it was a gathering of some of the industries most wonderful people. I spoke with Billy Lane & his wife Erin for a while over a few days time regarding the shop being purchased from Arlen, and it’s future. I will keep tabs with Billy on this project so that I don’t report incorrect news, but the idea is to make it a cool lounge more or less, highlighting future builders while honoring the past, so with that said, I will sit back and await the shops future & in October, I will do another shoot there & show you how Billy & Erin’s goal has moved forward.
