  1. I leave on the 8th of July and come home on the 4th of August. Guess I'll see y'all next year
  2. Thanks for setting this up Jeff, and thanks for leading. Nice to be a follower for once (and ride at sane speeds). Fun ride and great to see all of you guys. Lower speeds and fewer pictures in my old age lol. See y’all again soon.
  3. Ah yes, you probably thought I was dead...I hate to disappoint you. My tires are Dr Phil, my brake fluid is Aunt Jemima, and my chain is looser than your mom - so naturally I'll be there, if only for proof that TJ has a "did-I-read-that-correctly" ROAD KING. L.O.L. see ya weirdos Saturday

    Hwy 1

    Ah yes the good ol days when some of the NorCal VFRD guys actually had VFRs

    Rear View

    It is! I did a trackday there on the 7th - when it had about 500 miles on it. You've never felt terror like turn 1 on that baby - but the brakes are really good. Based on my features, you'd think I live at Monitor haha They're a safeguard - careful observers will note that I once had a black set of V35s on the 7th. The left latch broke after a tipover, I fixed it (I thought), and the bag eventually fell off and was hit by a Volvo (not joking). Both the latches on my [used] silver set seemed suspect - so on went the bungees. And eventually off went the bike!

    The Road

    Don't forget Mountain View BBQ in Walker! Great brisket to fill you up after a trip over Sonora Pass on the way to Monitor.

    The Road

    Agreed. I would actually count this section of CA89 as one of my favorite roads on earth. Scenic, never crowded, great (and clean) pavement, and long enough to get tired but not actually crash. I've literally ridden it 20 times in one day.

    The Light

    Haha I wish. 12 Doublewood.

    Yeah I carry a tripod - a lightweight (but full size) one with a ball head. Anything longer than about 1/10 sec. requires it, especially on a non-IS lens like this one (Rokinon 14mm). As far as DoF and focus, I set focus on the front fender reflector while I shine a flashlight on it (10x zoomed on live-view to make sure it's perfect). The super wide angle of the 14mm plus the long exposure time help get some additional depth - though if you look closely the stars and sky are pretty muddy. Clarity and sharpening in Lightroom prop them up a bit. I have a couple more from this same trip that I'll post when I get around to doing the ride report. Glad everyone's enjoying this one!

    Milky Way

    No sir. Edited in Lightroom yeah, but a single exposure with my headlamp to light the foreground. No tricks. Thanks. 30 second exposure, yes. 14mm, f/2.8, ISO 6400. Super, super dark night on Big Sur at new moon. Zero natural foreground light.
