That's the "Dani I love you" hat ........ but what the story is is beyond me.



Guess: .... you tried to get Casey to sign it?

Okay, it's 3 am so I'm a little out of it but I promised I'd start with some pics. I'll post the occasional story line but I don't want to steal Jum's thunder (plus he's a great yarn spinner so I'll keep them brief). Also, a little disclaimer. Jumkie is going overboard with my photo abilities (thanks homey). Seriously, I read a lot, and try to shoot a lot, but I'm a beginning amateur (at best) that's trying to improve when it comes to good pics. That's it. So if you happen to be a real photographer, please don't roll your eyes at my attempts to be artistic. I just enjoy the hobby and am trying my best. I don't take anything too seriously, especially myself. That being said, I hope you enjoy them. (it was sunny as shit outside, and makes the pics hard to shoot without a lot of contrast and shadows, but they're still fun to look at.)



Here's a pic of most of us at the corkscrew.

Since CK is in love with Lorenzo, he was very excited to show off his Lorenzo panties......I bought some too, Mrs. Gator said they fit my ass well. Which is good cuz most women tell me my ass is as flat as a pancake.

These are popular sunglasses at the track! This is longrider (who lent me his beemer, I love him), Arrabiatta, and Lil' Arrab.

So for this race at Laguna, I bought a really cool lens that has some incredible resolution, even when making jpeg images, you can crop down real close. It allowed me to look at the livery on the bikes closely. It's sorta cool to find little shit on the bikes of interest. So I shot some practice shots of them leaning over and noticed two things in this series of shots. On is that Lorenzo uses a butt pad so that he doesn't slide back in the saddle on acceleration, and Rossi doesn't. Then I noticed where Rossi's Butt cushion is missing, there's this little double bull dog laminate. One of them reminds me of Bruno, my dog in my avatar. I know these sounds like the musings of a 8 year old, but I'm up at 430 am sifting through about a 1000 pics, I can't help but to notice silly shit.



Dovi getting low....

Lorenzo (notice the cushion)

10033:99low.jpg]



Rossi with out one.....

10034:rossiloq.jpg]



And a decent close up of the little bulldogs (This was a panning shot where you move the lens with the subject to blur the background to impart motion in the pic, so it's crazy that the decal is in such good focus.)

10035:rossidogs.jpg]



Nicky leaning in.....

10036:nickyblowup.jpg]



....and a close up crop of his stickers on windshield and behind his helmet on the "back hump" (they read "California Love").

very cool pics gator!!! dont worry about being a prof or not, they look awsome. you're right, the details are very good to see. that dog on rossi's bike is guido, he died a couple of years a go. I think he has been on that spot on the bike since 2001
