Was out for a 'Blat' on the Bike on Sunday 'wit' missus on the A259 road to Rye Harbour, And i saw this guy Taking Photo's as we came round a bend, so when i got home I googled it, As 'yer' do and low and behold there we were on his web page, Seems the company have them on Snake Pass, all over the place really...... So a quick down load, And here we are..... What a good idea!.... Might go hairing round in the 80 next Sunday..

Im not following.....how did you "Google" him? I assume he must have a board or advert on show? What's in it for him/his company?

Nice pic btw :cool:

Looking good, Higgy. I saw one of them in the Peak District a couple of Sundays ago.

Yes he did have a Van, But i googled Motorcycle Photographer on A259 etc etc and found him.. They are Event photographers all over the UK, you just look up the road you were on (A259) Rye and there are about 500 pics, You find yours, (A choice of 4). Then for a small fee you can down load the image, or have a poster size pic sent to your house or A4/ A3 ... On a T shirt / mug ....Key ring, Underpants 'Ote' really. They are called.. Getapic they do motorcycles/ Classic Cars etc etc

I've bought pics myself. Bikerpics was the one up above Chatsworth recently. They advertise in good time so you can get your buzz on ready for the camera. Not cheap but decent pics and you can go round and round and they'll snap away until you've had enough. They also do pics at the gates to shows like the Peterborough MCN festival.


Here's our Gert.

First I've heard of these guys but looks like a nice little earner for them. A photographer friend and myself did a similar thing in the early 90's when I had my first Fireblade. We did some shots round Owler Bar, Baslow hill and some bends on the snake. At Owler Bar, other riders out for a run and a couple of Caterham 7 type cars obviously realised what was going on and kept coming round for another pass until someone in The Peacock called the Police about people "racing", allegedly. :laughing-rolling:

Managed to get away for a few days with a couple of mates a few weekends ago. Absolutely loved it as it had been too long.

July has not been the best so far But the Next 7 days or so look promising.... I love the Old Transalp, For a 600cc its nippy enough and Handles Lovely.... BUT!.. Next stop is an Old XRV 750 Africa Twin... The Only ones for sale on ebay are at Liskeard, Thats Devon i think.... He's always got half a dozen for sale (imports)... But i dont like the comments in his Negative feed back... Might be 'Nowt' but its a long way to go to be disappointed ...... Ride safe if your out and about :thumbup:

Every morning for the last month a ZXR has come hammering past our office at 08.05 more or less , properly on a mission , late for work i guess ? A loud pipe , the sort that you can only get away with these days out in the sticks , the lasses hate it but it makes my day :)
