I am a freelance photographer and lecturer in photography that has decided to get back on a bike after a few years absence. I have always driven smaller engines, lots of offroading and messing about. First time that I have owned a bike  bigger than a 650.  

I am a portrait specialist that work with very old equipment. My topbox will now become the housing for a 1948 Large format camera and all its accouterments. Still figuring out how the hell I am going to fit a nice big sturdy tripod onto the bike.
