Wow!!! Great shots! Saw you out their all day busting your hump taking pictures. Let me know if you have any more. We're looking to get a picture to put on the side of our trailer and haven't been able to find the right one yet, looks like you may have some cool stuff. It would be great advertising for you as well!! Let me know if this is something you'd be interested in.

Again, great job!

Chris,

Thanks for the kind words. It was a pleasure to see you ride and race...you're lookin' good, bro! At first I didn't know it was you, I just saw this GSXR and some guy goin' hell bent for leather on it, but when I figured out it was you, I knew I had to be sure to get some shots of you. I haven't got yet what I think would be a good shot for the side of the trailer, but I will be at the next AFM race at Sears, and we can talk about what kind of shot you'd like. I think a 3/4 frontal view would be good, maybe something as you're exiting Turn 7. Send me your email to scharfsj@ix.netcom.com and I will email what proofs I do have from yesterday. Keep up the awesome riding!!!

Berto, I didn't know your AFM # until last night, but I will look through everything I have to find you....if I didn't happen to get you this time, I will next time, you can count on that....you and Robert, both. As long as I know your AFM #'s and the race you're in, I will do my level best to get a killer photo of you guys.... I've got yours memorized now....

Me too!!!! Any of #138? If not, that's cool, but it would be great if you could put them digits into the ole memory banks for next time! Your shot are outstanding, truly the best I've seen from the local folks and I'd be tickled pink to see myself likewise captured.

Keep the good stuff coming!!!

Berto,

Here's a quick and dirty PS Elements pic for you..I will go back and postprocess a better one when I get home from work and can use my cool postprocessing tools on PS 7. The "killer" shot is yet to come.

This shot shows Berto trailing the brakes, just as he is about to bank the bike over and really corner it through the apex...this is a braking shot, not a cornering shot (see next shot).

I think it's cool you can see the berm stripes in Holeshot's face shield.

Nice! Now if Berto would only get around to painting his damn bike he might actually look the part of guy dicing for the lead...

Seriously though, leading the race for a lap and cruising to at least a certain 3rd place in Open Prod. was freaking awesome!

BTW Berto... you always brake with one finger? I'm applying as much pressure as I can with two fingers and can't seem to use proper braking markers...

Stephen,

That's so pimp man! I want to work a deal with you for the season with pics cause I know you're time is worth a great deal. I don't want to just steal pics from ya...

Dave,

I look almost the same as last year...I now know what to change.

Yeah, I always brake with one finger. I can't find sensetivety with two, and find that one works well enough. I'm gonna try two, cause it's hard to blip with one...

Try working out your forearms (brachealis; top, not bottom) for more strength there. Also, new rotors would be good for ya. I wasn't a fan of my stock R6 stuff...(you need to ride the 1000).

Well, I suppose having a girlfriend this last year might've contributed to weakening my forearms....
