How’s this for some kind of record. I dropped into the Deus ex Machina V-Twin show on Saturday and took some snaps for you all. Now let me define terms here. I took my first shot at 2:37pm, and my last at 3:57. In that time I took exactly 939 photographs. That’s 939 photos in 80 minutes, or about 12 shots a minute; one shot every 5 seconds for eighty minutes. I could have sworn I saw smoke wafting out of my camera afterwards and I’m only just regaining sensation in my right index finger.
See how much we love you guys? Heaps. That’s how much.
P.S. Yes, we know that some of the bikes aren’t v-twins. Despite my many loud protestations to the Deus management to have all non-Vees impounded on sight and their riders brutally interrogated, they refused and many different bikes mixed together in a crazy kind of engine configuration orgy. So, so dirty.

Summer is most definitely here in Sydney. I spent a few hours yesterday at Deus checking out the entrants in their 2010 bike building comp, and shit a brick it was hot. Like 35 degrees Celsius hot – or about 500 degrees Fahrenheit for all our non-metric readers. Bad news for my sweat glands, but good news for the photos as most people there were more interested in cooling off in the shadows than getting up-close and personal with the machinery.

Yesterday the guys at Deus Ex Machina put on their ‘Parallel Universe‘ day – a festival celebrating all Parallel Twin motorcycles. Andrew Jones our resident photographer/writer dropped by and took some snaps of the goings-on. We hope you like them.
