Guess who's the only Moto Guzzi rider? Green 1000S to be exact. '93 Big valve. 2 day event. The moto riders got paid approx. $350.00. You'll have to look for the motorcycles packing the camera dudes.
My original American camera guy wanted to be on a motorcycle that had panniers and a trunk. Evidently, he wanted to move a house.
He looked at the bike after we meet. It seems that he wanted to pack a boatload of stuff plus his drone in the shipping case for aerial shots. Rainsuit + plus other junk etc. Total newbie. He did not tell this to the Moto Coordinator. He wanted a GS Adventure bike with ALL the luggage.
I suggested "Not a good fit." 6' something.
Previous cameraman gets reassigned. 2nd cameraman that I get assigned. Veteran still photog from Germany. Veteran of more than 20 Ironman Championships in Kona. He likes the fact that there are no side bags Easy on/off because he carries all his camera equipment on him. He's about my height. He knows where he wants to take his shots. No need to ride with the "pack". End of the day, I ask him how did it go. He replies that getting on/off the bike is a little work with all his gear. This is on a Thursday and the end of the Women's competition. I have a solution.
The Men's competition is the following Saturday. I show up on my Honda PCX 150. He's laughing because it's smaller than the 1000S. He gets on from behind and throws his leg over rather than climbing onto the bike. Good fit. No problem with a passenger.
