Chosing the intro image was very difficult, because I don’t like to be photographed and because it’s hard to get all my stories in a single frame.
The biker between the Ninja and the Dorsoduro it’s me! And the place is the Tonale Pass in the North-Eastern of Italy. The Aprilia was my first “real” bike after the training with previous supermoto bikes when I was teenager. The year was 2009 and in that moment I’d never thought that in the future the maxi-motard would have become a maxi…enduro.
Nobody in my family is passioned about bikes. When I was 14’s my parents would’t even buy me a scooter.
Probably something goes wrong if today you’re here to read this.
My first bike was a 50cc CH Racing motard bike, and it was followed by the Husqvarna SM125, the Dorsoduro and eventually by a splendid Street Triple R m.y. 2014. But life changes, so I shift completely my riding style and I bought a Tiger 800 in the full optional XCa edition. Even with my previuous bikes I travelled a lot, however It’s undeniable that ride with a maxienduro it’s a completely different experience.
Someone at this point could tell me that Internet is full of bikers blogs…
It’s difficult to get beautiful shots while you’re riding, because often you’re wearing gloves, the helmet and the weather may not be good. And in most the cases your friends are waiting for you because your photos are a very time-consuming activity.
This is why, sometimes, I like to ride alone to get all the time I need to shoot.
Bedo’s Mototour was born as an Instagram project to unload all my passion for photography and bikes, because the social algorithms and the spaces to narrate are too narrow for me. So, a part of my work will be published here and not on my social page.
I must thank my friend Pier (@Pierontour), that shared with me the idea to create an Instagram page, and my fellow Liuk that helped me with my beautiful logo and with whom I share my photography passion and tricks.
Bedo’s Mototour will be a mix between a diary and a portfolio.
