Awesome RR. Makes me wish I had the means to ride past NJ.

Its hard to know, without going through them all, to find a ride report, and know its going to be good. But, since I saw that Gregor had started this one, and had read the other RR with the couples riding two up, I knew this would be a good one.

Gregor, question for you. When you guys did the stops for pictures, did you break out a tripod?? Some of the shots look like they would require one, but not sure if you carried one with you.

I am in the process of learning to take the best shots I can with my Canon P&S( see link in sig), and soak up as much information as I can from others. I can see taking my tripod on my street bike..not so much on my DRZ.

what about setting up a ram mount? have one set up on the handlebars or maybe on the back rack if you have one. not for leaving your camera on but you could stop and use the whole bike as a tripod.

base, arm or arm and adapter

maybe the company would respond to a couple requests for a longer arm for this purpose. i like the second one i linked but i don't think it as tall as the first. i also do not know how the swivel works as far as if the tension is adjustable or not. it appears to me that you would be able to angle back wards the setup to balance the weight of the bigger cameras with longer lenses and the plate setup would help distribute the weight on the bottom of the camera. while with the P&S's the arm could be as upright as needed


great rr fellas

yeah, that is actually not a bad idea at all. Only thing is, many of us like to get our bike in the shots.....this idea would work for everything but that.

Is that on Poison Spider? That looks almost exactly like where I decided I was getting in over my head and turned around.

I just got back from Moab/ Green River/ San Rafael a week and a half ago. I don't know what you have planned, but I would recommend at least one day in the Whitewash area. Dead Cow loop, Slickrock, sand dunes. That was probably our best day. Kane Creek is easy and super beautiful as well as fun. I suppose this all depends on what bike s you are bringing.

Have fun!

You're going to have a great time. Moab is the greatest place on earth to ride a bike. The town is nice, the people are great and this time of year the weather is fantastic as well. Enjoy it!

Hi Gregor

Could you explain your technique in the brush tunnel/rock wall shot please?

Can we access your exif data? and lastly how are the family? I really enjoyed your previous 5 up RR

Cheers
Chubby

Good to see this amazing pics thread live on and on...

hmmm. Trying to figure out what to do this summer. Hmmm. Moab in the summer. Now that's an idea. Go back and do it right.

hmmm

Edit: Oh wait. But not like this. Something in between.
