High up in the Himalayas, life is very different, the faces and places we encountered were unlike anywhere else on earth. We are now part of a small group of adventurers who have tackled this route, as we know, the Himalayas are not for the faint-hearted, the mountains sheer magnitude is a test in itself, add to that the high altitudes, unpredictable weather, the risk of landslides, sheer drops, roads that are mud, water and sand, sudden border closures and route changes and you realise why this is one of the most challenging motorbike adventures on the planet. I rode with nomadicknights.com
It seemed that the harder the day the bigger the smiles, and at night wherever we rested our tired and often bruised bodies, we shared our many tales of the day’s ride with a drink or two.
We can now all claim to have riden the highest road in the world (18,340ft), we wound our way up into the mountains, through remote valleys, over beautiful desolate high passes and through the pristine and remote ranges of the India/Tibet border. We slept in tents by huge mountain lakes and under awe-inspiring snow clad peaks.

From the built-up bustle of London to the dusty highways of India, Paul Minor and Wieden+Kennedy Delhi take us on a historic road trip from the spiritual home of the café racer to the modern-day Continental GT factory in celebration of the new Royal Enfield Continental GT.
Embracing the effortlessly cool Royal Enfield spirit, we follow our three adventurers across the continents as they embark on an epic 11,000-kilometre burn-up from the Ace Café in London to the Madras Café in Tamil Nadu.
But this is more than just a road trip – this is a Royal Enfield pilgrimage – and Paul Minor’s beautiful visuals and atmospheric style both convey the boundless freedom of the open road and bring together café racers past and future.

Well the dust has settled–or maybe more appropriately, “the snow has melted”–since The One Motorcycle Show 2014. Our 5th year in operation: a milestone we never anticipated when we first dreamt this up back in 2010.
This was our biggest and best show to date. We worked harder and longer to get more bikes, more people, and more fun packed into a weekend celebrating 2-wheeled culture. Despite the worst snow storm Portland has seen in 5 years, we pulled it off without a hitch. It was a little worrisome that people would be scared away by the weather, but that was not the case. We had more than 9,000 attendees over two days and more than 120 bikes in the show!

Fund this documentary! “It’s Something Inside” —-» kck.st/1h6vsW2
Film cant be made without your help!
It’s Something Inside is a feature length documentary that will explore the spirit and soul of motorcycle racing in the United States. From grassroots racing through to the highest ranks in the United States, AMA Superbike, AMA Flat Track, and AMA Supermoto.
Since the financial crisis hit, motorcycle racing has seen a rather large lull in numbers. Motorcycle racing needs to return to the successful days of the past. We need the crowds at the races and the viewership on TV that the sport used to achieve. With that comes a return of sponsorship money. I’m looking to find a way to show everyone the beautiful, elegant, sensational and bright world of road racing, in hopes to regenerate interest. I plan to develop a film which will excite people who have never before watched road racing, as well as bring pride to the people that participate in the sport on a daily basis. A return to the glory days is something i’d love to try to help accomplish.
Having said that its hard for indie films to break through the niche and into the mainstream, to be promoted outside motorcycling. Obviously that’s the holy grail, a theater deal, an ESPN documentary that gets aired on their networks etc. To even get there you have to show them what you’ve got. Prove your piece is worthy, more or less. My way of doing that will be pitching the film to every film festival that I can. Get some awards, and get seen by those that make those decisions. As a production company that’s not Warner Bros, MGM, Paramount, or Fox, that’s a challenge that takes far more money than what we are asking for or that can be reasonably raised here. Often times millions. I know we here at Shofner Films have the people and the talent to get this film noticed though, and that’s the first step.
Bonnie and Clyde - 1934
Blood & Oil is a short film I have wanted to shoot for some time. It speaks to all avenues of passionate endeavors and the common thread of desire, determination and relentless pursuit it takes to see them through. That feeling that wakes you in the dead of night, the call to action that courses through your veins. It doesn’t matter what you do or what your passion is, there is always room to be challenged, to grow, advance and to be more inspired.
With that heart and intention, Blood & Oil is about wanting to create, be more awake and to be more alive. I have been lucky enough to both work and play with truly ambitious and talented people that push me more everyday, to those people I say a very special thank you.
And I thank you for watching and to those who share this film. It was a very ambitious shooting schedule, we shot 16+ set ups in 9 locations in 3 days, not including the pick up/spontaneous shoot days. A behind the scenes blog is being posted on my website, with extra photos and extra footage!
"The last of the embers cool in the waking dawn
as the silence echoes through the empty roads
and the beat of heavy hearts stir the morning air
The wasteland smiles, a grin tired and stretched too thin
Built on rotting soil the city starts to crack, the foundations perish and crumble
Trapped and left wanting, the weary stay hidden behind heavy doors and rusted locks
The undeserving cling to chances untaken
There is no escape
The darkness starts to build
I welcome the storm with my fists clenched, the aching seething from my bones
I cannot show you. I cannot take you with me
The course is already written
Moving in harmony, tracers strangle out the light
The consumption of every movement greedy and unsatisfied
From the wreckage the oil runs
Turning the blood of the fallen thick and black
Quiet is the pulse of the driven
Freedom is not levity, but the untold fight of the knowing
A force understood only by those who possess it
Dare to look up
Dare to breathe
To trust the hopeful and stack your spine
No need to call to the willing, they are already at your side
No need to call them brothers, they already share your fire
The crushing allure of pure acceleration
Chase it down
Chase it down”
