Yes, I agree! I had a bike and traveled long distances, I had somewhat normal handlebars and that allowed me to change my seating positions so I wouldn't get all locked up ....I heard great stuff about those but it's not for me ...Thank you very very much Andrew ...!!!

Behind The Lens

Location

....Yet another weekend in the Wichita Mountains I pulled into a parking lot to check my camera configuration because of the low light .....that's when this gentleman who shall remain nameless pulled in with his bike ....My first thought was dang, that's a bike I would ride ....so, I introduced myself, we exchanged emails, explained to the gentleman that I might put it in some photography competitions ....I explained that there really is no money in this ....that the copyrights are mine and he gets some free shots for home use .....we also talked about some scenarios he might run for the shots ....the whole thing took about 5 minutes ....got home, made some minor adjustments and mailed them off ...he liked the photographs and of course again I thanked the gentleman for his time
