Motorcycle weather

It's not only the flowers that are out early, the bikers are too!  Around here, it's typical for bikers to store their motorcycles for the winter.  Put it up off of the wheels, take out the battery, put gasoline stabiliser in the tank, that sort of thing.  Then, in the spring, they charge and reinstall the battery, check the tires and wait for good weather before bringing the bike out of storage deep in the garage.I myself don't do any of that - I'm ready to ride at any time!  Normally, I'll get 5-7 days in November, another couple of days in December and February, then 7-10 days in March and then it depends on whether it's raining or not.  This year, I've ridden to work several days each month including January!

This particular rider is my oldest, going off on his Honda Shadow to enjoy the day.

  1. Hi Buck. I like the way you captured motion with your son, yet the background is clearly in focus. And I really like the fact that you list all your camera settings. I need to do more of that... I think it will improve my photography. Your newest follower -

  2. I like the blurry effect of the rider that conveys motion, against the focussed background.

  3. Thanks for the feedback! I'm not really a very good photographer but every so often I tinker with an idea and sometimes it even turns out OK! I use Phil Harvey's ExifTool to extract out the image information. It's very neat that digital cameras record all that for us.

  4. Winter is the favorite season of bikers. The large number of bikers like to ride its bike in this season.
