I put new Heidenau K60s on the Wee in October. Twice in the last month people have looked at my bike and said "Wow, you put snow tires on your bike!"

Just think what they would say if you put studded tires on...

There's other people there besides the two ladies on the bike? Where?

My question is, why is this pic taken so far away?

We need close ups man!

I have a hobby as a professional photographer. Sometime this past summer, there was a BBQ/meet-and-greet type of event for some of the local area models and photographers. Just a chance to network more than anything. I had just bought a 1956 Kodak Retina III camera on eBay, and used the event to mess around with that some. I had just finished shooting two other models on the bike (along with the roll of 35mm) and walked back to the BBQ area where my bag was to change out film and get a burger. While I'm eating, someone walks up to me and asks if I told anyone else if it was okay to shoot on my bike, because others had started doing it too. I walked out of the gazebo, saw the scene in the pic above, shrugged, and said yeah it's fine. I already had my the pics I wanted, but liked the scene I saw, so I snapped it with my phone and thought I'd use it one day.

Here's you one that I shot of my two models.

That's always a forgivable sin.

That's magenta, DAKEZ.

If the drapes match the carpet, does it matter?

As long as there's no hardwood floor, have at'er!

Dinner table discussion tonight with another couple, guy makes a comment about wanting to buy a bike.

First hilarious point: Oiling my chain every 200-300 miles is excessive. His buddy does it when he does oil changes, which is every 5000 miles, and he's never had a problem. Same buddy has a rejetted Katana that can outrun Hayabusas. Yeah.

Second, not quite as funny, but still somewhat funny point: it's really not that bad riding in the winter. He rode his buddy's bike when it was 10 degrees and he just put his Carhartt jacket on over a t-shirt and was good. This is after I explained to him how I really love my neck gaiter and just got some heated gloves. His wife blew his macho cover, though, when she said, "Hun, you were only out for like 10 minutes and you came back shivering!"

The "i'm not cold because i'm a real man" attitude irks me. It's cold. You're human. You're cold. It's okay to admit you're freaking cold. Pretending you're not is just making you look like an idiot, not really manly. I ride year round out of necessity and I will admit sometimes it's just plain cold, especially without the appropriate gear.
