    I really want to start riding. I imagine it's a similar feeling to snowboarding by yourself when you're just cruising.

    maybe going down hill on a pedal bike lol

    My bike is like having a gun pointed at your head. Slip up and the trigger goes off.

    However, sport touring bikes + great views offer some very relaxing riding for taking in the views. I guess in a sense it could be like being on a snow board if the hill your riding is beautiful.

    that'll make a cool picture...

    let me set-up the camera...


    Zoom...

    Focus...

    ISO...

    refocus because of a bump...damn bumps...

    got to re-aim the camera...falken bump

    re-zoom...

    re-focus...

    re-ISO...

    oh...forgot to add the speed-o-meter in the shot...

    got to take a picture of something at 55 mph....speed-o-meter added...

    re-zoom...

    re-focus...

    finally ready for the picture....

    click....




    crash......









    game over.....




































    or is it....

    what mini-van did he crash into that had the first honest congressman-to-be riding in that got killed.... or killed the kid that would eventually cure the common cold...?


    please ride to ride....don't take others safety into your hands to make a photo popular on the internet....

    a one second glance at something else while traveling 55 mph will have made you 80 feet traveled distance that you were not watching.....66 mph is 100 feet of missed attentative driving....




    and then posting it on the web....cool pics....but a real dumbass.

    I ride no handed all the time I'd have no problem doing it and plan on doing it as soon as it gets nice. Notice that for the most part he's just pointing and shooting. set the camera to full auto and aim and shoot. take 300 pictures and get 20 good ones.

    toward the bottom of page 4 he clearly explained his technique


    ADVrider - View Single Post - ! may be going to hell in a bucket,
    not that difficult and not really unsafe
    his eyes are clearly on the road
    the hand that matters is on the controls
