    Hi All,
    I've had the A7 for a year now, just getting around to joining some forums. The majority of my use is for on and off-road motorcycle trips so the size/weight of A7 is perfect. I'm not a sophisticated user, my pics are point and shoot in-camera jpegs shot mostly in Program. My stuff is geared toward sharing our trips with friends/family via the Adventure Rider forum. Anyway, I'll use this thread to share a few shots with you folks.

    Sept 2015 - San Juan Mountains Colorado (Silverton/Telluride). The whole ride is here: Silverton Colorado/San Juan Mountains in pictures - September 2015 | Adventure Rider

    Those photos are great! Thanks for sharing them and your trips :)
    We have at least another motorcycle "nut" around here (@WoodWorks@WoodWorks ) who I have a feeling he'll like these a lot too :D

    Welcome to the forum and here's your first feature thread ;) Enjoy your stay ;)

    Thanks Nick. I really like the way this forum is formatted. Pics link in easily and the way I intend - can't say that about all forums..

    Best,

    DYNOBOB! Welcome to the forum, compadre! :drinks:

    Great pix, and congrats on the feature. As Nick mentioned, I like to take my camera out on (BMW F800GS) rides too. And Black Bear Pass is definitely on my bucket list.

    I just posted a little video in preparation for a little ride I'm taking in Patagonia next month. I bet you'll get a kick out of it.

    Some stunning scenes there to be sure. My motorcycling days sadly coincided with my digital P&S days. :eek:

    Great vid David - Video editing is a skill I need to acquire :(.. I just take short clips.. Here's my descent of the steps on Black Bear with $3k camera in the tankbag :D



    Look forward to seeing A7 pics of Patagonia.

    You know, this is what pushed me to invest in the A7. I used a RX100 for 4yrs and was happy, but damn, life's too short and trips too precious not to bring back the best you can. There's a couple I'd like to have back.

    Wow, you do get around, Bob! Another great set. Am I correct in assuming that you didn't ride your Husky out to Daytona and Nova Scotia? :D

    Here's some fun perspective.. This is Telluride. The V in the mountain is Black Bear Pass. The last two pics are in the V looking down at Telluride.

    Yep, very blessed David. In between work and making hay I get to sneak away a bit.

    I love the Husky but it's not the bike for those trips. :) I have several bikes but the Goldwing is my tool for covering ground, it's done a few 1000 mile days over the last 11yrs. Fingers crossed, by mid-Sept I hope to be sharing pics of my most ambitious ride to date. 7000 miles on the Wing to/from Whitehorse, Yukon. Unload Husky and do 3500 miles to Inuvik - Top of the World Hwy - Prudhoe Bay - Denali Hwy - Hatcher Pass - Homer - Kennecott Mine - etc. Stay tuned...:cool: .(And wish me luck)

    Hell, ride the Wing to Inuvik, Bob! I met a guy on a Harley bagger in Prudhoe Bay when I rode up there back in 2001. Nothing to it! :laugh1:

    I bet you get a lot of wistful looks from drivers when you're rolling down the road on that rig.

    Welcome DynoBob! Awesome intro and images. I yearn for the open road these days, and used to be a rider (VFR750), but presently drive the two wheels by pedals. :)
    Very enjoyable tavel photos! And agree, life's too short, get out there and do it!
