Mark Tilley is the rider in about 75% of our test photos. He builds the  bikes, tests them, writes about them and sometimes takes photos of them. He's a multi-talented man.

He's using a little log as a boost in this photos, but that's just because we insisted. For this photo of the Suzuki V-Strom 1000, we used four flashes, several of which are pointed at background elements. Nikon D800, ISO 1600, f6.3 @ 1/250.
