Photographing Men of MotoAmerica 2015

“Thermosman” Mike Fitzgerald, the motorcycle suspension guy of Turbo Turtle Racing

 

You’ve all seen The Big Lebowski, right? Jeff Bridges place THE Dude of all dudes and is so utterly chill in his performance that it took coolness to a new level.

Well, Mike Fitzgerald of Thermosman Suspensions meets that cool level and turns it up to eleven. Yes, this dude has master skills in the motorcycle industry that rival the top dogs.

He graciously stepped away from one of the Turbo Turtle Racing bikes just before a race to sit in front of my camera for this MotoAmerica series at Road America. He was such a fantastic person to work with.

Grateful for your time, Thermosman. Thank you!
