    I'm really sorry to read about the injury. BTDT & it wasn't fun. You have to stay positive & you will be back on the bike.

    Really fantastic shots. I recognized some of those roads and I don't recall them looking like that when I was on them. You definitely have a very good eye for photography.

    Prayers sent for a fast recovery.

    I've spent the last three months working on my back....Chiropractor puts me in, I get back out... Nothing like back pain and not being able to ride..:cry

    I love your work Frank! I've shot alot of FILM in my day:evil... need to get REAL digital gear now, it's good enough finally! (just money!:1drink)

    Look forward to seeing you back...Take care, don't give up your gift! :D

    Frank.

    I signed up here just to post this - Your photo's really are truly amazing!

    Is there any way you would share outside the flash gallery? I don't mind if there are watermarks over the image, but I would really love to use sooo many of your photo's are wallpapers on my desktop as well as laptop - Especially the landscapes, but the other as well!! So, if possible, could you share it with us somewhere in high res jpeg's that we can download?


    I really need to find a way to move to the states and buy me a bike - I currently live in South Africa and the road users are too inconsiderate for me to use it as a daily commuter. Safety first! Want to get to the US of A in any case... Also miss my bike...

    Dang, Frank, that's freakin' brutal! How long has it been? Seems like a year or more since you got hit with the back issue.

    Anyway, it'll be nice to see you on two wheels again--and hopefully soon!

    I just wanted to say thanks frank. In all honesty, your shots are far and away the best images I have seen related to motorcycling. Period. Full stop.

    There are a LOT of amazing shots on this forum from spectacular ride reports in amazing places....but still I rank yours at the pinnacle.

    I hope your back heals up well enough to get back out there.

    And thanks again for making the images viewable. I come back to this every once in a while and was sad to see them locked.

    Thanks for putting all those great pics in a sideshow for us...the ladscapes look like Peter Lik's ( Lik-like ;-) ).

    If you were to put the landscapes into a book, I would buy several for Christmas gifts...

    Jaw dropping photos. You should quit the mechanic thing and just take pictures for a living. WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Your back will get better but it takes time and maybe a good chiropractor. Try to avoid surgery. Good luck with the back. I am just getting over a back episode from July 4th.

    Giving this a bump for old times sake. Frank - still doing alright after that injury?

    Was going to forward this thread to a friend, but found everything had disappeared and had all been password locked. Any info on this?

    If you have published a book, I think many here, including me, would gladly buy it.
    Any details?

    Hope your back is doing better.

    I know I would. I remember how captivating these pics are. Too bad we can't see them. Hope all's well..
