New camera to play with, so I took some photos of Pepsduc's and my bikes (well, mainly my bike)

nice [thumbsup]
finally something to look at, rather than reading social pages mixed with a solid dose of "im so witty"

is it a rizoma belt cover? seems so
how does the ohlins damper feel?
joe, the rizoma blinkers look cool but the tray has to go
what's on the front?
where are the pics of clip-ones and triple clamp?

good quality photo's; thanks

ps
what camera/lens did you get

Peps keeps suggesting that this or that would look good, and I think "yeah, it would - and if I put one of these on, and one of those". If I had never found the DML I'd be richer, but I wouldn't have had nearly as much fun with the bike.

Peps has the Rizoma belt cover with the nice see-through bits. High blinkers are dazzlingly bright, much better than my DP ones that can hardly be seen in daylight at a distance - or so some riding buddies tell me.

The damper has smoothed the skittishness out of the high speeds - the bike is a lot more stable and confidence inspiring now. It also helps when the front wheel gets occasionally elevated - stops the sharp twist when it hits the deck. Basically, it makes up for some rider deficiencies. The side mount steering damper is a bit cheaper than the top mount, arguably works better, and looks a bit more aggressive. One of my friends suggested I could do handbag snatches with the rod sticking out the front (now there's a way to pay for more mods >:D)
But... I'm still having some handling problems on high speed corners (if you follow the suspension discussions in the Tech forum you might have noticed a few questions from me)

Triple-clamps haven't arrived yet, so the clip-ons will stay unphotographed until all is in place. Anyway, it's a bit hard to see them through all of the controls, cables, and brake lines.

The camera is a Canon G7. The digital SLR's are tempting, but they're bulky to carry around and the underwater housings for them cost more than the cameras. The compacts (the G7 is a good compact - it's even got a little neutral density filter that flips over the lens) take good photos, especially if the subject is reasonably close, have affordable and reliable underwater housings, and don't get in the way too much when diving. Trouble is, I like the G7 so much I'm a bit reluctant to take it underwater now, since my last camera drowned when I didn't have the housing properly sealed.

Thanks for the compliments - I'll put some more bike-porn up when the next bits arrive (and I'll clean the bike first next time)

thanks, geoff
you're quite right; moding is a never ending process. mind you, i've just finished cleaning very thoroughly my bike; it really was filthy
and while doing it, i've come to conclusion that i've reached the end; honestly i have nothing else to change on my bike (in my view)

the rizoma bits look very cool and sexy; they really do a nice job. ohlins; well, wouldn't mind but i honestly think that my bike is not powerful enough to justify this option

as to camera, i was quite sure it was a digital slr; good quality pics
ok than, i shall temporary change my signature since the subject of photography came out
keep those pics coming

cheers!
melvin

Thats a nice pic Melvin. You should keep it and get R2 to incorporate the logo somewhere! (IMO)

Melvin.... i agree. the standard tray looks crap. a new one (or tail chop!) is planned soon.
I've got the rizoma blinkers on the front too. you can just see them in the photo of the front right of my bike. they are much tidier at the front.

Very nice pic. I'm going for a ride over the coming weekend. I'll send some pics and you'll see a difference - it'll all be flat.
