Moonlit Ride

Just a short ride on Yoshie, my 2006 Suzuki V-Strom DL1000 Sidecar Rig, whom the motorcycling gods have apparently decided is to stay with me for the foreseeable future.

Went for a ride on her today and felt a bit of pull towards the right, indicating perhaps not enough "toe-in" by the sidecar.

Some adjustments later, and after a nap, went out for moonlit ride in the neighborhood near the local high school:


Yeah, that's the moon, all "bloomed" due to the exposure settings.  Still, I liked the way the photo turned out after some manipulation of pixels.  Hope you like it too.

Lovely shot. I also ride at full moon sometimes. If Yoshie stays around for a bit you will have the opportunity now to offer a spare hack to motorcycling guest. How good is that ;-)

It's always good to have a spare rig, that is true.

Now, for some snow....

Wonderful shot. Though it reminds me of the 1930's films where they adjusted the exposure and contrast of daytime filming to appear a "night" shot. :)

I assure you it was night time Beemergirl, though there was some tweaking involved as well. :)
