There's another guy on her from SA named Alan. Good guy who does some epic rides. He's near East London I think. And there's a couple of SA guys on the Yahoo XRR group as well.

I'd really like to come over there and ride with Alan soon. But the airfare is crazy expensive!

Photos

Hi FockerThanks, if you have photoshop I could give you a quick tutorial not difficult they were taken on a cheapy panasonic as you dont want to bring anything expensive on an out ride. this one I used a layer blend technique one had a texture to give a grundgy film look and anouther multiplication blend with a layer mask to add the vignette and dark areas.I am a photographer from South Africa which helps a little I guess although when Im on my bike Im not at work so dont really think much about the image just snap away.
