    That pic is fascinating. How did you get the effects? what editing program do you use? You seem to get different colors and contrast that are unique. I haven't gotten far into your ride report...

    Wow... that's a total flashback right there. My first car was a 1964 Ford Fairlane 500. Very much like that one on the right. Those two on the left look like 66-67 Fairlanes, too.

    Meanwhile, it's barely creeping into the 40's in the Albuquerque area today. But it's a balmy 69 in Tucson. Just sayin.

    that one was done with photomatix pro, its a HDR shot from duplicates of one shot taken whilst riding, and then when i did the finishing touch i deleted blue from the color scale to make the sky black and white to give that end of world look

    there's a lot of time and money to invest in those rides to get them back to showroom quality, i'll pass theres a lot better stuff to find in AZ and NV

    we'll be in Tucson tomorrow, it was 32 today crossing Texas with freezing rain...not fun

    Well, you have my number. You have accommodations and a garage available. And I know a place that has the best Philly Cheesesteaks outside of Philadelphia.

    as this is a real quick whirlwind tour from Barber we headed to the Florida panhandle riding thru a little Alabama fall foliage and a surprise to see cotton growing this time of year

    we arrived at Grayton State Park just as the sun was setting and then set up the new tent, a Nemo 4 man that packs as small as my two man and settled in for a nice clear night looking at the clear Florida skies and the star show

    Paul congrats on the new ride! Many thanks for your tips on my ride West. This time I sampled but I now know where I'll be spending more time in next ones. Or maybe not and just shoot further on other continents. Looks like my sub from this thread was dropped auto magically when you renamed it.:D But not to worry, I care less for thumpers and more for the rider. I definitely wanted to see how you're progressing. Barber was pretty cool when I visited last summer with BMWRA rally. I had a blast. The one thing I can't forget was meeting a guy in Bama on a huge V twin and telling him what a nice Harley. He said, "this ain't no Harley it's a Big Dog" then he took another puff from his cigarette and cranked it started, must have used like 200 AMP battery to turn that thing.. hahhaaa

    Cheers man!
    Look forward to more posts from you.
