I have a spinal cord injury that prevents me from shifting gears with my foot so I am limited to scooters and the thumb shifting Spyder. I still feel I am blessed as I still get to ride!
Props to you, and a thought. I know there are some companies that make air shifter kits. I'm thinking if you found a bike you liked, but it was foot shift, you might be able to install a generic air shift kit, which I believe are thumb operated.

mine came out of a year long nap for a nice ride this last weekend... finally broke 90K miles on the 300 mile way home from Warped Trip IX...



it hasn't been properly washed or waxed in a couple years. still has a few scrapes and scars from a minor lowside awhile back and all the drops on dirt and ice its had over the years. still runs pretty good.

yeah, but I'm not anymore. I used to think nothing of 700 mile days back to back, now 300 miles of back roads has my right elbow and hand screaming ARTHRITIS at me.

I think I'm gonna clean this beast up and sell to someone who wants a LD sports-tourer, and find something smaller/lighter, maybe a 650 thumper or thereabouts. I don't need to go 120.

What's the effect you do to the photos to get them to look like this?

I shoot RAW format and develop in Lightroom. That's where the magic happens. Hard to explain all the steps, it takes a little while.

EDIT: Also, this is a 20 second exposure on a tripod.

translation (heh), tweak the shadow and highlight sliders while getting the exposure and contrast range just so, then tweak up the clarity and vibrance til it pops.

if you overdue it, you hit reset, and try again (once I go too deep, I pretty much have to start over, or it will just get weirder and weirder looking to me)

Lol, that's how I used to do it before I learned what the hell I was doing. Haha.
