    Yeah! How about a little narrative "color!" You know, tell us what it was like watching these feats. That sidewinder stoppie looks like a recipe for disaster, but I take it he made it work?

    I was also interested in how your camera managed to focus on and freeze the action while leaving the background out of focus. Nice. What kind of camera were you using and what settings? Thanks.

    Hey Dutchie, I know about the C1's at Schiphol, I saw one riding around. There are several ambulance and fire stations that use the C1 already in Holland and since a short time the Dutch police at Schiphol as well. It's becoming quite popular it seems for government duties I guess...

    About the camera, I use a Canon Digital Ixus (in US Digital Elph or S100), the first generation. Since this crazy French guy was doing so many unpredictable tricks and jokes I just set the camera multi-image quickshot kinda mode, so that when I press the "shutter" button it just keeps on taking pics. I then follow the bike with my camera keeping the shutter depressed (hey, it's digital, how cares :): , with 64mb I can take plenty of 640x480 pics). Now I got like 150 pics I gotta sort, but at least I got some real nice ones. And with the short time between the quickshots I can make cool animated gifs, you're gonna love those. That will reveill the "Make a 180 degree turn on the frontwheel" trick (followed by a burnout wheelie on one leg while waving to the crowd kinda trick... oh man, this guy is incredible...). But follow the bike while taking the shot, that's the only way to get the bike sharp and the crowd moving...

    More coming up after I did all the sorting, editing, giffing :night etc..
