Chris and I went downtown to take some pictures. This time, instead of lugging around an SLR, I took my new Panasonic Lumix FZ200. It’s a 12.1 megapixel bridge camera, with a 28mm-600mm superzoom lens. I wanted to see how it would do as a walking-around camera. I think the… Continue reading
As a photographer, my first choice for any professional assignment is a digital SLR. But, as a guy who just walks around and likes taking pictures, I want something slammer and more convenient. And I also want to be able to shoot video. Also, as a pro, a nice camcorder… Continue reading
I could ride this thing all day and not get tired of it. It’s comfy for my 5’10"/195lb stature. It’s got a great stonkin’ engine. The DCT makes any kind of riding you want to do a joy.
This morning, a guy in a new CBR100RR pulled up next to… Continue reading

…and here’s what happened.
It’s 6:30am, and I’m on an empty road outside of town, stopped at a light. Since there’s no traffic, I thought, "why not see what this baby can do?" So, I popped her into manual leaned forward, and peged the throttle as soon as the light… Continue reading
So, I’ve tooled around town on the new bike. Some initial impressions below. But first, a walkaround video and some pics.
I’m keeping it very sedate while I’m breaking it in, so I haven’t pushed the engine more than a little bit. But even a little bit of pushing and… Continue reading
Yeah, I haven’t posted for 6 months. Mainly it’s because I’ve been really busy with other things. That seems to be my standard MO with this site. Post a lot for 6 months, then sort of move on to other things. Then, eventually, come back.
Well, I have a reason… Continue reading
After a tough month of a slammed schedule, I’m finally getting some room to come up for air.
If I was to tell you how packed my schedule has been this week, you’d be so bored you’d want to slit your own throat. So I won’t. But I do have time to take note of a few things.
The ATK/Hyosung GT650R I’ve been evaluating for ATK is doing… Continue reading
I’m not sure that the guys at North County House of Motorcycle;s came up with a permanent fix for my FJR’s electrical problem. I was in a parking lot this afternoon when I lost all electrical power. Fuses and battery are OK, so the problem is elsewhere. So, NCHM is… Continue reading
The Kindle e-book Version of my book, Slackernomics: Basic Economics for People Who Think Economics is Boring,is now available on Amazon’s Kindle store here.
THE BLUE AND THE GRAY
This theme was inspired by the first studio shots ever released of the Motus MST-01 sport-tourer. It also has the vertical menu system on the sidebar, instead of the horizontal one in the header.
I’m happy to announce that sometime tomorrow my book, Slackernomics, will be available on Kindle at the Amazon store for the low, low price of $3. For those who don’t know, Slackernomics is a book on basic economics for people who think economics is boring. Instead of a bunch… Continue reading
The day started out very badly. In my way in to work this morning, I stopped at Albertson’s for some snacks for the day. This Albertsons is located on the main way in to the military installation where I work. On one side of the road, it’s… Continue reading
I’ve pretty much decided what bike I want for a used 2nd bike. That’s it right over there on the left.
I want the 2009 Buell 1125R, in Arctic White, with the blue screen and wheels. I don’t want the 2010, with ugly “R” on… Continue reading
