My Latest Photographic Accessory

Posted by

I had motorcycles from age 12 until 20, then had a 25 year blank. For twenty years I said, "Next year, I'm going to get a motorcycle again." Well....next year finally got here.

One day in February as I was preparing to go out my wife asked me where I was going.

"To look at motorcycles."

"What?! Are you going to buy a motorcycle?"

"Yes."

"That's so sudden!"

"I've been telling you for twenty years I'm going to buy one. What the hell is so sudden about that?"

It is a '97 Suzuki GSX400, and has a six-speed transmission. I recently had it up to 70kph in second gear and still had about 4000rpm to go until the redline.

I have no idea what the other four gears are for.

Yes, that is all photographic gear strapped onto the seat. Camera, lenses, flash, radio triggers, tripod, monopod, softbox umbrella, etc.
