What you can't see in the photo is that he came around the curve doing around 40 and then punched it, went all sideways, and was heading straight at me while still on the gas. He came completely into the next lane but I didn't get any photos of that because I was starting to run out of the way. But I couldn't exactly run well because my ankle and knee were jacked up from when I went down earlier in the day. If he'd kept going in that direction he would have crashed into me, my car, or both. Total dickhead.

I don't remember how that specific V-rod sounded but it's pretty safe to say that it was loud. I like how the V-rod sounds in general but I die when I hear something like a Guzzi -

the motoguzzi's do sound amaizing, my buddy sent me a picture of one and was trying to convince me onto it instead. I'm just a big guy and he doesn't seem to understand that i'm not going to fit on most bikes.


sucks being tall, that's why i got rid of my R6

Dang, the background on that first pic makes my eyes tweak out! I think it is because of the yucca plants or something causing the bokeh to look weird...

but as soon as you do that, you're going to loose the nice small depth of feild.

unless what you really want is just the longer reach.

sorry to quote myself....

Alternatively, put the lens on a crop body, then no teleconverter needed and shallow depth of feild retained.

I don't like shooting my 70-200 F4 on my 5DII, it just doesn't have much reach when i could just put on my 100-400.

but when i put the 70-200 f4 on the 7D it's a different story all together. my 100-400 is almost too big on that body depending what application i was hoping to use it for.
