If it helps, my DR650 was 366 lbs and the CRF feels a lot lighter. Well ok when I had to pick it up out of the snow it didn't but when riding it feels more like a 275 lb bike. It probably has a lower center of gravity.

If you lived closer I'd let you take it for a ride.

I was out in Odessa WA for the Stumpjumpers D 100 this last weekend and was hoping to catch some clear skies for shooting the Milky Way. The weather was cloudy and wind most of the weekend. I finally got my break at 3 AM Monday morning before I left. I headed out about 3 miles onto the course (I'm a member with permission) to an old homestead that had caught my eye earlier in the weekend. This shot is the old foundation and water tower. This is my first attempt at the Milky Way.



This is the newer home that is next to the foundation in the Milky way shot..... I stayed through sunrise and got some great shots in and around the house to be posted later.

The bathroom is apparently out on the front porch... (pink toilet anyway) It was a great spot to take care of some business and catch up on the D 100 program....

Beautiful shot. It's captures like that that make getting up (or staying up until) 3am TOTALLY worth it!

Thanks guys. Star shots are a max of 30 seconds or you get star "trails". This was right at 30 seconds. I light painted the foreground with two flashlights.

Tom,

Nice picture! Is it that time of the year already or is that from the past?


Sapling,

Love the stars! I really need to start taking my camera with me to work and try to get some shots like that. The flashlights worked out excellent!

I got a good chuckle from the second shot.

Jon...

That time of the year. Time to shake off winter and get out and
smell the tulips .

Nice work with the flashlights. Did you have to dodge the foreground to balance the exposure with the sky? If not, was the timing of the painting a guess or did you use the shoot and adjust theory?

Be proud my friend, awesome work.

That'd make my portfolio if I'd shot it.

Thanks John,

I had been out the night before with no stars out and got in some practice on the old house next to the old foundation. I had a good idea how long to paint each area based on this. I have curtain settings and flashlights that I use that I know just about how much light to paint. Check out the light pollution from camp in the background!! This is a 120 second exposure and some El wire for a fun effect. I got out there and my flash remote batteries were dead so I couldn't get the color gel effects in the windows that I wanted...
