Great pics, as always. Are all of them taken with that tiny Sony RX100? Amazing little camera.

Thanks for the great ride report. Spent most of the new years eve reading and enjoying it. Great way to start the new year and to get my thoughts going on new places to ride to next (this) year. Gotta have a plan to dream about to get through a Canadian winter. Even one in Vancouver.

Interesting, the S100 is praised on Fred Miranda, but the S95 seems to still be liked a tad more.

I have notifications for this thread setup so I get a weekly update. It's one of my favorite weekly 'routines' to sit down and read this thread with some fresh brewed coffee.

Anyways, enjoying your pics and story, stay safe. -Steve

These pics are compressed (by me to make uploading and viewing easy--and then again by photobucket, which really destroys a lot of the details.) With that said, the best photos from the Canon S100 are nearly as good as the Sony RX100. The difference? The Sony takes MORE photos that are better than the Canon ever did. The Canon colors were always off and required lots of correcting. I don't think I ever uploaded a picture here without making some changes.

They both might be point-and-shoots, but the Canon is a point-and-shoot-and then go home and spend hours correcting them. I still make corrections here and there with the Sony, but overall it's spot-on and doesn't make those frustrating technical mistakes that the Canon did (mistakes that you only realize when you get home after it's too late).

If I had my choice of a free S100 or a full-retail-price RX, I'd take the RX.

Stunning pics. As well as your book (which will have large philosophical elements) you should write the feature story (about the more practical elements and places to see) for a US motorcycling magazine. Almost every pic is worth of a front page or a centre spread.

Mine as well……. However we all meet people, have friends, happen on books, and…….even happen upon some ride report on motorcycle forum that inspires…….helps us to reaffirm to be the best we can and reintroduce ourselves forgotten truths: the most fulfillment we will have will through our integrity and accomplishments regardless of hardship.

On following dreams... about 15 years ago I decided to get back into motorcycling. My first long roadtrip was to Death Valley. I ended up at The Amargosa Opera House one afternoon. I got what was then a $50 room. Complete with the stained tile, dripping faucets and bare bulb light fixtures. I think the same dead bugs are still there on the rug.

What was different was, Marta and her husband were there and performing that evening! Myself, four German tourists and a nice French couple were guests at the hotel. Two couples from Pahrump NV. heard she was performing and drove in for the event. I knew I was seeing something special. It is still one of my best stories from the road. Quite a woman with a heckuva story.

"Instead of follof your dreams we declared: Dreams are prey and should be hunted, stalked, decapated, and devoured. And when you've sucked the last bit of marrow from the bones, mount the head on a wall, enjoy it for a moment and begin planning your next hunt"

That one went in my quote book. You're an inspirational man. Training for my first tri, in part because of this, and in part because I can finally run.

Happy New Year!

Anti-

Thanks for keeping with your RR! Death Valley is now on the list and I still can't believe you take that beauty queen off road like that but she sure does look purdy. Love the writing and wish we could have met up in Minneapolis.

Looking forward to the next post. Cheers
