    I got a gig shooting at the Lucha Masked Warriors for MTV2 here in New MExico. I shoot hand held HD video and got hired on the side to shoot all the shows here at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino on the Isletta Reservation.

    Thie week on Friday, I was engineering the truck and cameras and when I finished setting up all the cameras, they asked if I had time to go get my R60 so they could use it for a back story on one of the Luchadores. I said sure as long as he can ride and doesn't crash it!

    They assured me he has a bike at home on Mexico and said he rides it every day.

    I went and got it and went back for the shoot. The set up was he was to chase a couple Darkos out of the ring, thru the audience to outside the casino where the Darkos would hop in a van and take off, and he would hop on HIS motorcycle (my R60) and take off after them.

    We staged the shot outside in the car park and lit the sceene, it was about 9:30 whenb we finished the lighting. The Lucha came out and I gave him a pirmer in my broken spanish with the fill ins by a nice (pretty) PA from Mexico.

    He did a couple trial runs and we got to shooting.

    All in all it was pretty cool and will air at some point in the series on MTV2 on Lucha Libre USA, Masked Warriors.

    Here's Charlie Malice, the wrestler who rode the bike. He told me he love the bike and thanked me for bringing it down for him to ride. The director and producer realy loved the way he MATCHED the R60 color and style wise.
