Standing up on the V-Stroms pegs did a good job to get me "in the air"

The jump from 12 to 10 is not that big anyways, as for which camera to recommend what types of photos do you plan to take? Low light? Action? Landscapes? Etc.
I am very new to this I would like to take some landscapes as well as some action. I have been enjoying the pics I've been taking at rallys and such but I think I want to try more.

Some of the photos I have seen in the ride report thread have blown me away.

This image too is over saturated (which is visible most on the flowers) is this how they are coming from the camera or what type of processing are you using?

This sounds like a fun little technique to play with. Excellent suggestion!
