          Some Norton's were made at Woolwich, London, a mile or so from my old hometown. That's going back some, though.

            I like the Nortons, especially while reading "Joe Bar Team":

              I was a bit bored last saturday, so I visited a local Enduro race and captured some bikes for the first time in my life:

                Despite the looks - they were not going soooo fast.






                I love sports where you can get close to the subjects.


                The track was rather long, so I didn't cover all of it.

                  Remember all those CVF photographers doing panning shots for years ago? The knowledge came handy this day...


                  Well, it wasn't actually too hard at all.

                      Well, that was the easy part. Since this was a 24 hour competition, I decided to return later on the evening, to take the challenge of darkness and rain.








                      My LED-lamp came handy to light up the competitors instead for a flash.


                      Some shots are more blurry, but I like them anyway.

                        Need I say that these are high-ISO and low-f?

                          Those are some pretty wonderful pieces of work, Tommi!

                          I just can't figure out a favourite - though, I like the one's without people in the background the most... and then again, the night shots are just brilliantly captured!

                            Belive it or not, this is a thread I've never explored

                            But looking for a topic to put my next photo in, I discovered the thread. So here it is, an old veteran BSA motorcycle, photographed at Mellomverftet yard in Vågen, Kristiansund.
                            It belong to a long time veteran boat owner. I took this photo from the Pentax, via a editing program on my iPhone and put it in b/w with a hint of HDR.

                              Certainly a beautiful bike, would have loved riding this one.

                              But, bureaucracy is not as easy as I could wish. My Thai driving license for big bikes can't be converted into a Norwegian similar license. From Norwegian to Thai, in Thailand, is no problem.

                              Apparently, I'm able to ride big bikes in Thailand but in Norway, I have no idea and I'm not seen as a qualified driver.

                              I have had a wet dream to get myself a blood-red Ducati some day. Or a BSA maybe?

                                If you want to drive, get the Ducati, if you want to get practise in repair and maintaining, get the BSA.... (some say, BSA introduced the disappearing of the British motorcycles, since the japanese alternatives these days were so much more reliable).
                                But the look is beautiful!
