Good memory, yep he's getting bigger each year, he couldn't keep his hands on the grips and feet touching the pegs just a couple years ago.

Our son (21 now) never showed any interest in getting his mc drivers licence.

Or car licence for that matter. As a student he has free public tranporr (and 2 bicycles :laugh:)

10 years ago, kenny (foreground), douglasthecook (background) and yours truly rode to Mugello to watch the MotoGP and the Dolomites. Good memories! Our first stop was in the smallest village possible with only three houses and a chapel.

thanks, the original photo print is even better. and the lighting conditions were perfect for that shot. the copy cut off most of the peaks, which are fully shown on the original photo.

Any way to get one of your motorcycles in the living room? There you could place all that cool Christmas deco on it! 😂

Drones are just a blessing for people who like to take photos of nature and landscapes. I love photography, and for me, it is a massive part of my life and interests. I recently decided to do this professionally because it is best to monetize what you like to do. In a couple of years, I will already get a stable reputation and gain enough experience in professional filming. So far, I'm just gaining knowledge and just enjoying what I'm doing. I recently started studying various articles on photo processing; I read how to make symmetry in photography, which is essential when you're taking pictures with professional equipment. Good luck to you; maybe one day our drones will meet in the air

VTR250 that i ride alot

Those rock. I had three of them. I don't think that I've ridden a "real" motorcycle that was more nimble. 

 

I raised the seat on mine for some legroom.IMG_0698.thumb.JPG.de2dcf9ac272d7364442460eb69f225c.JPG

Squirrel steepened the steering head angle to make it even more nimble.

^^^  quite observant, as usual.  i bought that bike knowing it had been pranged up front, and after i got it running right and rode it around for  awhile, sold it quickly.

Another pic of my VFR taken definitely shows an aircraft carrier. This pic from the Library of Congress shows the Hornet, CVS-12 beside a battleship. Sure looks like it could be the one in my photo.

 

Definitely impressive vessels when you are that close to them.

Hornet was a key ship in the battle for the Pacific esp. at Midway Island.

Hornet was also the launching point for the 1942  B-25 doolittle raid on tokyo, the first us bombing of japan.
