great pictures
not sure why 75% have to be clicked.... instead of being posted directly
maybe it has something to do with the way you put them in the thread, in the first place

thanks for taking us along on your ride

camera question

Agreed with previous comment. The pics here are fantastic - really makes me want to hang up on this con call and hit the road.

What kind of camera were you using?

The pictures made till the Far Oer were made with a Nikon D90... that crashed on the floor of a restaurant.

The first picture of Iceland was made with the mobile phone then I bought a Nikon Cool Pix 10MP... not too bad

Cheers

Another great RR and another reason why I love this site so much. The other day at work we were talking about places we would like to go see. I said Iceland and my friends looked at me odd. It is really awesome though. There's ice and fire and wide open spaces and some serious partying and a country where hundreds of motorcyclists joined together to protest the government without a shot being fired.
