Your Best Picture

Looking through and seeing all the great pics of bikes and places members have posted, I started thinking (usually a dangerous thing).

If you could only post one picture out of all your pictures, which one would be your favorite of you and/or your bike? It does not have to be your current Versys, but any bike you own or have owned.

Here is mine:

Hmmm, Thumper this is a hard one for me with out sounding arrogant as have a lot of awesome pic's. This one would be one of my favourites and my wife thought i was nuts to ride up to Lake Tekapo just to take pic's after a heavy snow dump during winter. This is around 90km west of my house and it was a very cold ride but it was awesome.

A picture is worth a thousand words right? Very nice picture Kiwi. I bet it was cold, it looks like the top of the world there.
Your right, this will be tough for everyone to pick just one.

This is my favorite photo of me with my V (not in motion).



If anybody has any action shots, please post them here! My favorite photo underway is there.

Good pic Capn! You also made me realize that I worded the thread to be " favorite of you and your bike". I really only meant you and/or your bike.

So, I am editing my original thread to read correctly.

Not all that dramatic, but I like the contrast of the bougainvillea and the bike with the white walls:

I don't have many ride pics of my Versys yet, but I like this one (both the pic and the memory of the ride!)





Oh, and this one is where I was about to leave to a "Tech Day" at a friend's garage, where a bunch of riders get together to wrench on their bikes together.
As you can tell, I needed new tires and I didn't have them drop-shipped to his house.
And you can also see that I barely flat-foot the Versys.

Thanks, but not really what I was after.. I feel the colors at night make the picture more warm. Black & White seems harsh or cut and dry if you will. I actually tried it under a white streetlight then an amber and liked the amber glow better.

B&W photos are too easy (a click away) with Photoshop.

My wife has taken up photography as a hobby. Lucky me, I can have a photo shoot any time I want!

Well, at least now the talent agents have a proof for when they need to replace Hasselhoff in "Knight Rider".

Some good pics so far!! I'm enjoying seeing these.

I know it's difficult but remember, choose your one best picture.

I don't know much about rules. I am also pretty sure this is not my "best." But for today, it is bringing back the best lazy summer afternoon memories.
