An inquiring mind would like to know, if you please.
With low light, it is very sharp.

BTW, I hope the Tiger is OK.

I will never tell


The Tiger is having some issues, which with the right repair facility on board, should be resolved rather quickly.

Note to all, 'shit happens' is not a favorable response from a dealer/repair facility to hear when the problem was not resolved initially.
Esp when you've spent a lot of money there.

If any of you has seen my blood pressure rise, you will know it is not a pretty thing
I have pretty low tolerance for bullshit, especially when it comes to my bikes, something I need to be able to feel confident in mechanically.
I'm headed back to my original dealer in the next few days.
Sometimes you have to drive the distance for good work.

AND THAT IS ALL I'LL SAY RE: THAT MATTER

Terrific photo and it reminded me of this guy who rather surreptitiously made the climb to the top and took some stunning photo's...

Canon Powershot a590 settings

Hi Peach
I have enjoyed reading your thread. I just pickup a Canon Power Shot A590. I didn't see it in the thread, what settings do you use for moving shot and still shots?

Thanks in advance
Hungry

Cool2 First ride this year

Hello Ms Peach, just finished reading this entire RR, girl youve had some adventures in your own back yard!!,
been through some traumas, so many highs and lows and done and reported it all so eloquently,
it was a joy and inspiration to read.
Was gonna get down and do a cross legged peach but was just too wet and muddy under the bridge
sheltering from the rain.

Serious..
pay more attention on what it is that you are actually trying to take a picture of and go from there......
I rarely change my settings..

The GGB shot...

[QUOTE=the darth peach;15366805]I will never tell


I see. I think I get it. Nudge, nudge. Wink, Wink. Say no more.
However, I'll bet your tendency to stage middle of the road, double yellow line escapades had no influence on this shot, whatsoever.

Sorry to hear you had to deal with a service issue in an unpleasant way. Never pretty, I know.

The Couch

Looks like the itinerant Advrider couch..., appreciated, but best left by the side of the road....the couch, not the rider (in most cases).
