The red 51 is going to run up front and create a lot of excitement for us next year...

I'm in Southern California. No, I do not think it's been hit hard by Covid but who knows I don't trust the media. I honestly don't think that's bad luck, it's just a flu bug running it's course. Every other year you hear about the flu going around, and ... more »

So you think that group of people are wrong, but that group of people thinks you are wrong as well, and it's about 50/50 on each side. Instead of watching the media where you can't believe anything you see anymore (right or left), take a look at what's ... more »

You guys have to understand where all the Suzuki hate comes from...you need to realize it's a very sensitive topic for all other brands. They are still bitter from 2006 when the Suzuki (fastest bike in history) lapped the entire field. Every color was ... more »

It's nearly a 50/50 divide and there's a lot of hate building on both sides. Each side is getting very annoyed by the opposing side and the hate increases every day. I know friends who've ended 10 year relationships over the recent political shit storm. ... more »

Yeah, it does when it flexes a half inch and hits the linkage compared to a PDS. Regardless, I think I might choose linkage over PDS for a enduro.

I'm digging the linkage setup with that little skid plate although I guess some will say that's taking away 2" of travel over obstacles.

Yeah keep an eye on your SS by pressing down shutter button halfway and get used to reading what's in the viewfinder. You might want to put your camera in TV mode with a SS around 1/200th and slowly move up to about 1/1000th. You'll notice there are ... more »

If you are shooting AV mode in hot daylight hours @ f/2.8 then you can probably get away with setting your ISO at 250 which should put your SS way up there between 1/6400th and 1/8000th. This will ensure that if you "stop down" or close your aperture ... more »

Your AF system will not always nail focus. It misses more as the contrast in the scene decreases. If possible, you want your focus point to cover a high contrast spot on the rider or the bike, such as a white number on a black jersey or similar or a ... more »

It's so damn simple and easy that it confuses the newbies. It seems like stills are a dying breed though. I was just in Texas at the wave pool in Waco shooting a bunch of professional surfers and I was one of 8 photographers. Only two of us were shooting ... more »

That's a good one. Are you trying to fill your frame with the rider or is this cropped? Are you shooting RAW yet? What mode are you using?

I hear you, I like backlit stuff too but I just know my gear so well I just use EC for my different lighting scenarios. As for learning manual, I have found it's easier to teach someone the triangle with AV mode (semi-manual). I give them settings for ... more »

All your buddy would need to do on the Hockey rink is dial in some exposure compensation and he would be golden. Just like on a cloudy day, you can just bump EC to TTR (to the right) and you are dialed. ETTR (expose to the right) is a term used often ... more »

I hear you about the film days, I've been shooting for 30 years and I still have tons of film and slides to scan in boxes. I shoot film occasionally but it's very rare now. I used to get 36 exposures in a water housing and have to swim back to the boat. ... more »
