Someone needs to make HDR sunglasses so that we can all live in that beautiful world.

Nice bike!

When Doc, Cyclist, and Photographer Meet...

Eurocycle of Tampa cheered as Greg rode off into the sunset, which might just be true consider length of time . . . better not go there. But folks, BMW, Touratech, Clearwater, Wunderlich have made Greg the poster-boy of WCGS owners. We have protectors protecting protectors, a BMW bash plate that likely could survive the hazards on I-75, I-4, and who knows, even I-95 (FYI to all, Florida interstates). Add to that navigation gear, the vaunted BMW Nav V but the dated but time-proven Garmin 376C for realtime NEXRAD weather as well. But not only is this a gorgeous WCGS, notice the gear: Rev-It Poseur Jacket in matching GS colors, Arai XD-4 in none other but the excitingly new Diamonte Red. I would indeed be embarrassed to park my pitifully accessorized WCGS anywhere near . . . my gosh could I even stand the embarrassment of, "Gee, his looks so poor . . . "

Congratulations Greg, I love you buddy and so happy you not only have a beautiful GS, but that your shoulder has healed with no riding restrictions.

This is an interesting piece of information but not sure what to do with it just yet. I am presuming that you are talking LOW BEAM when you 'corrected' it and moved it higher? I'm thinking, just move it higher but then again, let's say you butted the bike's front wheel against a garage door, on centerstand of course, what would the height be of the low,high beam? Feel free to pick your units, inches, centimeters, km's, furlongs . . .
