    Helps a lot. Without it, the amps look like a car coming at you in the dark, and makes for a very unpleasant experience.

    DSC_4530s.jpg

    Our back porch (my son's photo, taken a couple of weeks ago).
    Sittin' out there now with VPR on the radio, a cuppa coffee -- and a laptop.
    Not a bad way to start the day.

    EDIT: Just realized that the photo above was taken with the odd - and uncommon - 105 mm f/4 Nikkor-T preset lens recently acquired by my son. This lens, known in the vernacular as the "Mountain Nikkor", is a small, simple triplet (thus the... interesting... flare and other optical 'effects').

    LOL.....thanks for that reminder Daddy. It's been posted before and I use that when talking music to some of my younger nieces and nephews.

    Here's a little trick I play on them sometimes. I ask them if they heard this new song by xyz, any of the popular no talent, over hyped artists, then I play something old school from the likes of Queen, Diana Ross, Bob Segar. Their jaws hit the floor and proclaim "I want that, is it on ITUNES ? "

    Then I break the news to them.....and I get a big "OOH" followed by disappointment. The youngsters are more into the looks and marketing aspects rather than the musical talents.

    IMHO....there's only one rap group worth mentioning, Run DMC. Plus they had great messaging in their Rap.

    she already totaled hers (another Sportster). I am impressed that it didn't scare her from wanting to ride again. She looked all over the area and fell in love with my bike...

    Any totaled bike owner that is alive is very very fortunate

    You need to be intimate with your bike, just like a side arm. If you don't know the inside and out of your device, you no longer have the upper hand

    bridges 'round these parts tend to have roofs on 'em -- this one's just around the corner from us; my wife's parents' house was through the bridge & up the hill...

    Maybe on the next version of their Amps, they might include a defeat button for the lights..?
