18/29 for the #29in29

.
Day 18 in the 29 in 29 photo adventure.

In digging through old moto-photos I found this interesting one.

It was taken while participating in an annual Oregon Vintage Motorcyclists (OVM) ride. We were two-up on Scarlet (Troubadour's Triumph America). While riding pillion, I had our old Kodak digital camera and was snapping pics of the riders and scenery.

I thought it was funny how I managed to catch my reflection so clear in his mirror. It was a beautiful May day.

    1. As long as I could use my summer gloves it was easy take pictures. Thicker gloves posed a problem though.

  2. A sunny day even in May is a rare thing! That's one of the great things about riding pillion - easy to take pics!

    1. I love sunny May days. We are so used to rain until July.

      I haven't attempted totake pics when piloting a bike. I just don't think I am coordinated enough.

  3. Awesome picture! The view from the back is splendid. I'm with you about taking pics while driving, not coordinated enough.

    1. Well, I'd have to do it left handed since I need my right hand on the throttle and I'm right handed. I can do a lot with my left but I am not ambidextrous.

      Add speed and gloves to that and it would be a disaster I am sure. Troubadour can do it, but I don't think I'll try, lol
