(Brett Sent a Excel Sheet explaining his mods so I took a screenshot of it instead of rewriting it all Because you Cannot Copy and Paste a Excel sheet like I do everyone else's email descriptions)




#5:Joe M. Lowell, Michigan. 2009 VRSCAW
"Quick rundown:
09 AW, bought June 2010 as a theft recovery for $8900. Had 1600 miles on it. Needed paint, bars, a turn signal and a fork lower to make it road ready. Swapped out saddle for a Corbin, added Cyclevision Floorboards, Painted it to match my R Roadrod, and rode it 10,000 miles in 5 months. Runs like a top, filled with AMSOIL. Spotted the Truck-lite LED, mounted it in a Soft tail headlight bucket, on a DX bracket. Had to fab up a wire to make it work, and it is crazy bright - beats my HID by a mile! My mods are pure function and comfort. Rode to the Dragon, KC, Chicago, Wisconsin, and MWT. The 1250 is much nicer than the 1130, IMHO. All my mods (except Paint) are simple and require no special tools, so anyone can do them. It is never done, but AW's are in March, so, here she is: Comet, my 2009 VRSCAW."

I have tried so HARD to explain this fact ever since the 1st contest. 99% of Modern day Cameras that cost $30 or more take decent enough pictures to get a proper shot off. I said before, I have a $200 Sony thats for all intense and purposes a Point and shoot, I have had photos blown up to 20'x10' and all sizes in between and they look Fine. I even get hired to take pictures now for TV shows and I show up with my tiny camera. Its about the Photo, the way you Place the subject, pay attention to the surroundings and how the light it hitting it etc... Very simple actually.

Thats pretty common actually and I have never understood it either. Suppose this has 1000's of people coming through daily and the thread 100's of views but apparently some people just dont want to go on Record or some kind of nonsense. I dunno, i stopped trying to figure people out long ago.

agreed ,and allowing enough time to take a million pics from as many angles ,and height variations ,bloody hell u spend years modding the bike , why no take a little extra time and move the bike around a few times take the same shots again , ,go home load em up sift the shit from the ok stuff ,over and over till u get a couple that ur happy with ,trust me i took probably 300 if not more on that day ,just pointing and shooting with a little pre thought for bckground contrast ,im sure theres a shit load wrong with that pic to a pro ,like to bright or too much glare ,but for me and most on lookers they come up fine
