If I don't work, I might try to make it to Hickman this weekend. Sure would be nice to try that 606 that's waiting for the BRP.

I had to look at a job in Russellville, KY today. Great day to ride with just one little shower to ride through. I did manage to get some cool shots over in Logan County on the way back home.

I went Darkside with the ST1300 - as in I now have a car tire on the rear of the bike. Handles a bit different but not too bad. I can still crank through the twisties pretty good. If I can get 20k-30k miles out of the tire, I'll be a happy camper.






FerrySTOC 4 happens next weekend starting Thursday at Paris Landing State Park. Join us if you can.

Bruceton/East Carroll Co. area. I could ride the bike but, I desperately need a better seat & I'm freaking out how much faster my D-606 (front) is wearing out compared to the Heidenau K-60 (rear).

Wallachian Spikes screwed with this post 05-10-2013 at 05:13 AM Reason: additional info.

Olympus TG-1 set on the Magic setting with the Dramatic exposure. Once you learn how to trick the camera settings to pick up the clouds, it takes some really outstanding photos. I'm not sure it is supposed to work this well, but I've learned some tricks to make things better.

This might be the ideal motorcycle camera. One handed operation, 1 sec start up time, waterproof, shockproof, etc. I wear it around my neck and take lots of pics on the fly such as these...

Just kidding. I'd say we'll find a place that serves sandwiches or something.
