Pics of my short ride

I was bored on thursday, so I decided to hit up the local twisties. Well, after not very long, I realised that the snow was melting, and the roads constantly had wet patches going across it. So I figured, since it's not safe to go fast, I'll just go slow, stop a lot, and take pictures. So here they are, for your enjoyment:



































On the way back, I stopped next to a baskin robbins. Well, upon putting my foot down on the ground, I realised I stepped in a big glob of tar. Way to go, road workers ! I didn't drop my bike, or anything, but now I leave black stains on the floor wherever I go. Today I tried scraping the stuff off, but it's kinda tough. Anyone know of some sort of chemicals that'll get it out but not kill the rubber sole of my boot?

Those are some nice pics! Looks like you had a good ride.

Regarding the tar, you might want to try a product called "Goof Off". (liquid, comes in a yellow metal squirt can)

You could try some Goo Gone or some lighter fluid on the tar. I know those work for gum not sure about tar though. goodluck

Awesome pics, looks like that would be fun as hell to ride, well minus the melting snow!

For whatever its worth this is my favorite picture, you use nice foreground and background, good depth!

Hi lateott_156:

Great pictures...it looks like there is some serious mountain altitude wherever it was you were riding. The houses and cars "down below" look very far away! I can imagine with all that snow there was quite a bit of runoff, not to mention sand and salt on the roadway to add a bit more excitement...I would be riding slowly and taking pictures, too.

What kind of camera did you use for those shots?

Coal oil, or what you call Kerosene to even some old petrol will do the job. What we have used for some 60 yrs. Well I have anyway.

Very nice pics! You obviously like to take a lot of pics, you might find this thread/website interesting http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=83803
maybe post your pics too.

Try WD-40 or equivalent on tar and also to clean off flung chain lube.

Awsome pics! At least you can ride a little where you're at. It's been to nasty here for two weeks in the midwest!

I'm also curious about what kind of camera you have. Your shots are so clear. I have a cheap digital and you can really tell the difference!

Nice work. Never seen a red 250 before. As much as I hate those bikes yours definatly looks the best out of the ones I have seen. Nice job on the graphics.

Thats a stock 06' 250 isn't it? I seen one at a dealership here and thaught they did a great job making the 250 appealing to look at!
