UPPER SANDUSKY AUTUMN CRUISE 2016: ROUND FIVE

Standard

This July 4th holiday weekend was supposed to be spent on the motorcycle and at the drag races but the weather has made that a non-starter. The drags are dry but it’s wet where I am so that was a no-go. Hopefully the rest of the weekend is a little drier and I get on the bike a bunch. As a consolation I offer these photos from the 2016 Autumn Cruise to the weather gods. Give em a peek and see some pretty stuff. This is the last round of photos so take them in and look ahead to possibly seeing more from later this year.

UPPER SANDUSKY AUTUMN CRUISE 2016: ROUND FOUR

Standard

Well, well well…it has been a VERY long time since I’ve posted any car photos. There are numerous reasons for that: life, motorcycles, jobs, lack of quality computer, and more. I finally fixed one of those reasons when I recently bought myself a newly updated iMac. Lightroom is now running quick and smooth so I’m getting back in the saddle with these photos. Check ’em out and if you like something then give a comment. I’m working on potentially selling some photos from my various car outings. I hope that it can be a small revenue stream that also gets me out and about over the summer. If you are interested in a print then hit me up in the comments or by email/text if you know me personally.

I’m back with a few more photos from the recent Upper Sandusky Autumn Cruise that was held on September 24. There’s some good stuff in this collection. Shiny paint, bright chrome and colors abound. There’s even a bit of the Halloween spirit mixed in there. Check it out!

Upper Sandusky Autumn Cruise 2016: Round Two

I finally sat down and edited a few more photos of the Autumn Cruise last night. I’ve also been trying to decide where/how I want to shoot photos of vinyl. What I thought would work in our house hasn’t been going well so I constantly have to change my ideas and locations. I’m not digging on that too much. It’s becoming really frustrating to move all the gear and setup materials over and over.

Anyway, check out the photos from the car show a while back and see what you missed out on.

Upper Sandusky Autumn Cruise 2016: Round One

We’re back with another wonderful, colorful, sunny Autumn Cruise held in Upper Sandusky, OH. This year’s event took place on September 24. What started as an overcast, grey day turned into a hot, sunny and overall great summer day. Naners and I rode the bike while following Jason (Kustom Persuasion) and his family to the show. We also stopped off at a grain depot to check out their operation as it was their 100th anniversary. Good country stuff, right there. I didn’t shoot as many photos as last year and the selection seemed to be lacking a little bit. No matter. The cars were still bitchin’ and way out of my league. I still managed to snag some good shots and have a good time.

By the way… the picture above is Nancy’s hand after she got bit by the Harley. She was trying to help me lock up the helmets and she burnt her hand on the engine. Gotta be quick or else they’ll get ya! That’s ok though. She’s fine and there was a cool little scab to pick at for a while.

Anyway, I suppose you just want to see some car photos, right? Well hit the jump and check out some of the first edits.

Getting Out There

Standard

Nancy and I have been on the bike a lot lately. And by a lot I mean just about every chance we get. If it’s not raining then there is a good chance we are riding somewhere. All of the rides aren’t necessarily long. Mostly just rolling around our normal areas, maybe 20-40 miles. Last weekend, however, we went back to Clyde and then to the Upper Sandusky car show. Fun times were definitely had. More on that later. For now, just check out some photos I took of the bike as test shots before the show. Also included are some recent Instagram photos and a map of the ride to/from the car show.

Summer’s Last Stand

A little while back, my mom and I rode out early one morning to get some snaps of the bikes in the wonderful morning glow. It was a nice, warm morning and a great little ride.

Lately it’s been not so great outside. Rain all day today, cloudy most other days. When it is sunny I try to get out and ride. I even ventured into Kent last week to see a friend I haven’t talked with in a LONG time. Good times were had by all. Sadly, it appears that summer has finally come to a close. The days aren’t creeping into the 70’s anymore. I’m feeling lucky if it just slides into the 60’s. It looks like I’ll soon be riding the bike to Clyde for the last time and to ready it for winter work or just storage.

So, in honor of this summer bidding us adieu, I offer up some photos of that warm mornings ride that seems so long ago. At the top of the post is what I took with me that morning on our ride. Helmet, gloves, glasses, camera bag and all that stuff. Not too much but it definitely freaks me out having that much expensive gear on that back of this motorcycle. Anyway, there are a few photos of my mom’s bike but a bunch more of mine since it requires infinitely less retouching. Check ’em out!
