Motorcycle Trip - Day Route: Harrisburg to Philly Loop 1

I'm starting a new category on this blog. I want to capture some proposed motorcycle routes that I hope to take... interest some others to join me... and remind myself of where I want to go. Each trip will include something interesting to see or photography.

This route includes a stop at Round Guys Brewing and Weyerbacher because I'd love to visit both places and can connect them in a loop. I've done the starting out portion when riding to biker breakfast in Ephrata and the last portion when riding the Schuylkill Haven poke runs and love those two portions. Lots of country roads with relaxing scenic landscapes.

Comment if you'd like to join me. This one may happen in July 2014?

Some more film processed photos from WV trip

A new collection of photos from the DSLR from the Motorcycle camping overnight I did with Kyle from FairingEast into West Virginia. 

GoPro: Photo Mode.

Playing more and more with the GoPro, this time in photo mode. It's a little limiting... but still fun. Lighting is the big issue I'm finding right now. In heavily wooded shots, you'll see below that it leaves the shutter open a long time. It can be cool, but you'll get a lot of 'throw away' shots if the terrain is rough... which it is for mountain biking.

I am contemplating a 3D housing and not link the two cameras together, just set one on photo and the other on video. That would be interesting. Anyone try that one?

Anyway, on to the images. That's probably why you are here anyway.

Motorcycle photography

As riding season is JUST around the corner, I have been reviewing some cycle photos I'd taken last fall. It was reading a blog this evening about a blogger who went to the Ephrata "first Sunday" ride today. Brrr. Seems people are really hardcore. Great to see that!

These are my shots I captured last all on a "guys say out"... Me, my boys, and my Dad (and friends). That was a fun day. More to come this year I'm sure.

Two Wheeled 2012

It seems a little odd to be talking about New Years Resolutions in March but this one is starting to take root. Yeah, I committed to losing weight and getting healthier... Like everybody else. And I'm actually making progress with those. The other resolution I planned on was spending as much of 2012 on two wheels as I can. Over this winter, my mechanic (Dad) hooked me up. He installed a set of saddlebags on my 1978 Gold Wing and I'm not ready for some touring rides. (below)

To keep with the resolution, I've ridden to work a few times already. Hard to believe... Riding to work in February. Pretty cool.
