    thanks to all for stopping by, please come back, there will be more good stuff.


    i use my pentax shooting while riding and in dusty or wet conditions.

    +1, my other camera is the older g10. works all the time. yeah, having a viewfinder is a good feature.



    todd, get yourself one of these too. awesome price for $13 at amazon. i paid $30 at graingers.

    Thanks for the info Ted,

    With point & shoot cameras it is hard to get good pictures if the object is in a shadow and background is sunny like this one. Flash makes it weird.

    Oh definitely. And with an adventure ride you wouldn't carry a SLR. I was more curious what caused it, so I looked.

    jim, you having the long legs comes handy (i mean leggy). couple of years, espi, andreas and others rode that too. espin was on the valdez and andreas on the xr650r. we took it slowly and of course i got some help from others.

    crab flats is the shortest route from arrowhead to green valley. we on big bikes with luggages have to go around the long way.

    Was thinking the same thing. Duy, what color is your biker? It kinda reminds me of mint chip ice cream.
