THE BIENVILLE LEGACY
Our journey with this controversial superbike
It was the run up to the Goodwood Festival of Speed 2015 and there was so much going on in the studio that we weren’t sure we would make it to the big event.
In the end Rupert decided to leg it up there at the last minute with one aim in mind…to take the best picture of the weekend with the cheapest camera we had in the studio on a standard entry ticket.
Now for those of you who know Rupert, this sort of self-challenging idea is nothing out of the ordinary and the next bit of the story will come as no surprise. For those of you who don’t know Rupert, rest assured that if he says he’s going to do something, he won’t rest until he does!
So off goes Rupert, armed with a little Canon 550D, a run of the mill Tamron lens, a tent and a sleeping bag. Cut to several hours later and Rupert’s regaling us with this story of how he saw this mental looking motorbike and went flying up to it accosting the owners with a passionate plea of ‘I just have to photograph this in the cove’.
