Scott Toepfer's been called "the nicest guy in motorcycling" before and rightfully so. He's one of those people you meet who instantly make an impression on you. You're likely familiar with his photography work even if you didn't know it. It's been in countless forms of print and video, circulated throughout Tumblr feeds and Pinterest boards, and is in Triumph dealerships around the US. But for the last year or so Scott has decided to step out from behind the camera to partake in the two-wheeled action he's so often framing through a viewfinder. Not just any mild form of two-wheeled partaking either... hillclimbing and land speed racing... on a '45 Flathead Harley.
Check out the full feature below, originally from the pages of Iron&Air Magazine - featured on Whiskey Grade.
God Speed Scott! Ride fast. Take Chances.
You can follow Scott's journey via his blog Eyes On The Line.
