I'd asked him to run ahead so I could take that photo across the valley.

He's the one who took this photo:


Here is a photo of my bike in the same location as the green-dot pictured above. I'd taken the photo above off the left edge of this photo.

Interesting thing about this photo... I'm afraid of heights (big time) and I wanted to park my bike as close to the edge as I could so that I had room to frame the photo (with my back against the wall).

As I got off the bike my heal grabbed on the seat and I almost fell off the freakin' edge!

I literally had to sit down for 5 minutes to stop my adrenaline from coming out of my ears

I've been strictly a road rider, but this bike and thread is really tempting me to ditch the VFR tourer and pick up one of these....

Please don't tempt me any further..

Thanks Geek, those guys were a hoot I have to say. Be sure to let me know when you're passing through NY State and I'll scoot down and join you.

Great pictures in this thread.

But, also way too much use of HDR is ruining some fabulous shots.
Please God, no more HDR! http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=585896
