Normally when you think of doing a cool bike photograph, most people don’t think of a Kawasaki KLR as “cool”. But beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and the venerable KLR has developed a cult following of riders who love their bikes. We did a story in Adventure Rider magazine about the “Ultimate KLR” – a bike that was tricked out with all kinds of add-on’s and trick adventure riding parts. I brought the bike into the studio with the owner Gary Miller and model/mechanic Talor Reasin from Dallas. I wanted to create a fun photo shoot of Talor working on the KLR, showing off the various parts and add-ons. I wanted the photo to be sexy but quite appropriate for any age group. Talor was perfect and was very funny for the photos. She did an excellent job and Gary had a blast watching and participating. Its not often you see a KLR get the “movie star” treatment!
