On May 19th pictureline hosted BlackRapid in a giveaway and strap demonstration from 10a.m. to 1p.m. to celebrate the launch of their First Annual BlackRapid Motorcycle Ride. BlackRapid is excited to offer orange cross shot and orange original shot straps to winners of our social media photo competition. Any camera enthusiast is welcome to stop by for a fun morning with pictureline and BlackRapid.
They kicked off the tour in Salt Lake City, Utah, and will continue to explore the Southwest through June 1st. A BlackRapid sponsored van will accompany the riders through Utah, New Mexico, Arizona, and California. As we wrap up the giveaway, BlackRapid will prepare to depart from pictureline around 1pm to make the trek to Moab that afternoon. Three days will be spent absorbing southern Utah’s raw beauty before riding again to discover historic spots along Route 66 and Joshua Tree National Park, to name a few outstanding scouted locations BlackRapid has planned for their event.
Ron Henry, founder of BlackRapid, was inspired to start this new tradition to personally fulfill their company slogan "live the moment." He invites anyone who shares his passion for riding and photography. If you can't join him this year, or plan to join the tour mid-route, follow BlackRapid on twitter for live updates! This will be the start of a memorable tradition to experience his passion of riding motorcycles and capture as many unique experiences as possible within these two-week rides. The BlackRapid van will serve to keep camping and camera equipment off the bikes, protecting the gear and leaving you free to ride. Along the way, expect to learn outdoor photography tips from professionals.
