I dug around in the attic and found my old eight track player. Then I ran all my raw nef file photos from our ART course through the player. The more retro you go, the slower the files play. Since this was 30 year old technology the files passed really slowly. I mean really slow. Freezing the frames meant I could finally catch the flying Rickster in action. Without further ado, I present the Kawasaki ZZR that is so burning fast it always looks like black charcoal.
All right, I admit it. No 8 track players were involved. However, I'm so slow with technical editing in Photoshop that it seems that slow. I actually took Rick out of a crowd then placed him in a layer I created that had another bike in it. I replaced that bike with Rick on his bike. I felt bad that I missed putting up a trophy photo for him. After reading Bolty and Troubadour's comments about pilfering my photos I had to do it. Pretty cool, job eh?
BeemerGirl asked about the track. Here is an aerial photo. Did you all notice me gone for a while? Remember that guy up in the really tall tree with the Ospreys? That's ok. You can thank me later for the risk I took getting you this photo!
The paddock and front straight are on the left. Notice the river on the right? Only some hay bales and a dirt bank separate the riders from the water. Good thing you didn't know that at the time, isn't it? Target fixation, anyone?
Miles and smiles,
