MO Moto-Vlog: Behind The Scenes Of A Video Shoot
Sometimes you've just gotta watch how the sausage is made
Whenever I first meet other motorcyclists and they find out what I do, they almost immediately say that it must be pretty cool to get to ride all the time. And I won’t lie. It is pretty cool, but there’s a lot of work associated with the job that most people don’t see. Most surprising to casual observers is the long hours spent in front of the keyboard that keeps us from riding as much as we wish we did. There’s a lot happening behind the scenes that you don’t see from your side of the screen. For my first MO Moto-Vlog entry, I thought I’d take you behind the scenes on a day-long video shoot where we spend an entire day just capturing the video for our quest to determine “ What’s the best sport-touring motorcycle of 2017?”
Like most of the best happenings in his life, Evans stumbled into his motojournalism career. While on his way to a planned life in academia, he applied for a job at a motorcycle magazine, thinking he’d get the opportunity to write some freelance articles. Instead, he was offered a full-time job in which he discovered he could actually get paid to ride other people’s motorcycles – and he’s never looked back. Over the 25 years he’s been in the motorcycle industry, Evans has written two books, 101 Sportbike Performance Projects and How to Modify Your Metric Cruiser, and has ridden just about every production motorcycle manufactured. Evans has a deep love of motorcycles and believes they are a force for good in the world.
