    Arktus, I see you have a sign on your pannier case, warning you to watch out for Kangaroos.
    Watch carefully when you are in Denmark.

    Hehe. It was a gift and has a story behind it. Got it (from a friend who visited australia) after i nearly had a collision with a kangoaroo. Right here in my little hometown in germany!:eek1 Never thought, i would see one here.
    It had escaped his prison and jumped over the street as i went to work. It started a funny hunt at 6 in the morning.

    No big deal. The pic itself had a god quality, so i only used a blur tool for the background (behind the bike and the stone). I used this effect in both pics. In the first one i also worked with color balance.

    not many of the old style pics found their way onto my computer, I purchased the bike in 1995

    Hi wde TA,

    Bike looks well, particually like the ist one with the mountain backdrop.

    Think your bike is on the Horizons Unlimited "gear up" dvd ?


    Cheers

    Thanks,

    The first shot is at the Worthington Glacier off the Richardson Highway on the way to Valdez, Alaska.

    I haven't seen the HU dvd so I'm not sure if my bike made it there. I did attend a couple HU events here in Colorado a few years back and gave a short slideshow on my first Alaska trip at one of them.

    Hi Guys,

    Here is a shot of mine (rearmost bike) and Russell's Transalps when we went for a ride in the Beerburrum State Forest just north of Brisbane (queensland, Australia) on the weekend. This was taken at the Glasshouse Mountains Lookout. We were accompanied by another mate on his F650GS - he had trouble keeping up of course!!! :D

    G'day Guys,

    Good work Potski! Here are a couple of my TransFrankenAlp:

    [​IMG]

    Return leg from Birdsville in 2005.

    [​IMG]

    2009 Sunny Corner Trail Ride. Heap of forestry single track - the 60km was hard going, but managed to complete the course. Then rode 300km home, passing all the trailered trail bikes through the Blue Mountains hardtop.
    Absolutely buggered when I got home. The entry sticker still taking pride & place on the helmet.

    [​IMG]

    On the way to the 2010 Oz Honda V-Twinners meeting at Byrock this year. I love this shot.

    And finally....

    [​IMG]

    The Beast.


    Cheers,

    Dan. :D

    "Good work Potski!"

    Thanks Dan,
    That second one of your bike "return leg from Birdsville" I hope is at least framed on your wall, but should be made into a poster :clap ...or even front page ADV material ?? :evil :evil :evil
