"When I was 18 I lost a girl to a much cooler guy who rode a Ducati. Couldn’t let that happen twice. Photography became an artistic outlet that allowed me to enjoy motos even when not riding. I find beauty in cluttered urban scenes. My locations aren’t exotic, but that’s kind of the point. There’s so much to be seen and experienced around us at any point." - Micah Huntzinger, photographer featured in the Racer Within Motorcycle Book.
