It's just because I enjoy your thread so much.

You are right though.

Thanks again, sorry for any offence caused to anyone and looking forward to seeing more


No worries....

Is that the Thunderace you are talking about? ...or one of the early R1's ...I do really like those early R1's ...but if possible, I will prob try to get a new gixxer 1000. Will have to wait and see ..I've got all winter to think it over.

Nice shot Kam. You doing the B&W on camera, or in post editing?

Hi Doug ..I do the B&W 'post editing'....I just think some pics lend themselves to the 'B&W' look....But if you do it post editing you have both versions and can choose...if it's on camera you've only got the one choice.....plus it would mean fiddling about changing settings whilst riding, - which I don't like doing for obvious reasons.

Yeah the R1's or even the XS750 or the 250 two-stroke . If you get your name down quick enough you could have one of the limited edition gixxer's.

It's certainly different with it's chrome frame and blue engine casings ..... and I quite like it ...but with only 100 being made, and only 10 coming to the UK ...getting one would be quite a challenge .....plus I'd be more than happy with the standard one (which performs just the same). I'm not sure I would want to pay a lot extra for 'bling' - nice 'bling' as it is, mind .

6 C temp today, and our rideout season is over with many of the group having put the bikes away for winter.

With these lower temps the problem is the roads never seem to dry out once it's rained. Today was no exception with nice sunshine but damp greasy roads once you leave the city.

We met some of the guys for breakfast and then went for a cycle, However later in the afternoon I did manage to get out for a wee spin on Sarah's 750 to charge up the battery.

Took a few pics along the way ...saw this little beauty at the lights at Anniesland...




Later outside Glasgow University....

you are lucky you can ride.


The weather here is…





It is the end of the riding season, and it is time to go to the garage.

Do you have again the problem with charging system on the 750?

Kam, what software do you use for the post editing? I fully understand you not wanting to mess with changing it on camera whilst riding. You have enough going on.

East coast US, mid Atlantic region...was about 6-10 C this weekend...colder today than yesterday.

Luckily, I got out on bike for a bit yesterday..wanted to catch the leaves changing in this area.

Bubu

'Surfs up .... grab your board' ........ Seriously though, it looks like we having better weather 500 miles north of you. Same temps but we have clear blue sky yesterday and today. 4C this morning on the way to work.

No, no problems with the 750 charging ...we just don't want to have a repeat of last year by letting the battery get completely flat. I have now taken it off the bike and it is hooked up to the Optimate charger in the flat.

Nice pics Doug , the autumn leaves at this time of year always do look spectacular, especially if you get bright sunshine on them making them look 'alight'.

To answer your question, - I just use basic 'free to download' Paint.NET for any editing.
