    Calling an illegal immigrant an undocumented worker, is like calling the corner drug dealer an unlicensed Pharmacist.

    Here are some pics from a side trip I took to Lake Powell last month when I was transporting 2 new Rykers in my motorhome back home to AZ from Nebraska.

    Have to work on getting some better backgrounds. Ski resort parking is a bit dull in summer.

    Not trying to teach anyone to suck eggs here, but you could try getting yourself and the camera lens further away, or better yet, down a bit lower.

    Those pics above show so much of the parking lot simply because you're just not as short as the Ryker, so you & the camera are 'looking down' on it & cutting out the background view of anything but a wide expanse of tarmac - if you get the camera's viewpoint down lower (maybe even as low as the front wheel hub, maybe not quite that low?? Try it and see what works best for you.... ) so that you are looking along the line of the machine or even past it at the scenery behind, even if you still focus on the Ryker, you'll get waaay more 'background' and probably make the Ryker look more impressive too!!

    That's one of the joys of digital cameras - you really don't hafta pay too much to get all the pics developed before you can actually 'see' what you've captured in the image; so get clicking and try anything/everything you can think of, and maybe even some things you didn't think of but that happened anyway!! Just keep some basic notes about what/when/where you've tried so you'll know what works for you in those circumstances and you'll be able to use or replicate that technique later - or hope your memory is pretty good! You might hafta take a heap of pics, but even if it's only one out of a hundred (or a thousand) that's really the money shot, surely it's better to have it than it is to have missed out?!?

    Impressive backdrop. I'm already booking my tickets! All I need now is for this bleedin' pandemic thing to be over and for the International flights to start flying again! Not holding my breath tho.... I think it's gonna take a while?!?

    Thx .. the funny thing is, if you would ryde here, you would not ask : " how many miles a day " - just how high did you ryde today - we reached a peak at 12.000 feet (4.000m) two weeks ago, more than 8 hours on the saddle - saw still a lot of snow there !
    The Ryker is built for roads like these - a little faster than our "good old" but too heavy Spyders, much better handling up&downhill, also 2up !

    Those look really good, NY. What you need to make them even better are some orange and purple Phoenix Suns decals
