    OK I've seen HBN's setup for taking pictures while riding, what's yours? I'm trying to figure out what's the easiest, safest way to do this.

    Happy New Year Jax!

    Happy New Year Back at you sir!!!
    Let's make this a GREAT YEAR my friends!!!!! :deal

    I keep the camera in the top map pocket of my tank bag. I can get it out, turn it on and shoot with my summer gloves on, but not my winter ones. Always left handed while moving

    Well said Sir! I should have explained more. :deal
    Love those pix of "the " bridge/

    It is not easy to shoot on the fly, attention to detail is imperative. Don't forget where you are and what you're doing.

    DynaMick made me an excellent retractable camera lanyard that I like a great deal for the ability to drop the camera when needed. PM him for the details.

    The section of the Potomac to the north is called the Paw Paw Bends. Did you check out the tunnel?
