Thumbs up MotoGP Pics - Better Late than Never

I shot way too many pics at Laguna Seca this year, but I've finally gotten through them all, organize and processed them, and have posted a bunch on my website. Feel free to check them out. I hope you enjoy them!

Have fun at Indy! I would really like to go but with a new job and some other things brewing it's not in the cards...... this year.

Awesome photos Dave. Thanks for taking the time to organize and post them.

Re: MotoGP Pics - Better Late than Never

In the superbike pics, did you see the one of Matt Mladin - looks like his foot is completely off the peg - who says you need to weight that outside peg? Oh, to have an ounce of that kind of ability.... but then I guess street riding would be too boring.

This pic?? Not to start a riding technique debate but he would be weighting the inside peg. If it were late in the race and the tires were going away he might weight the outside peg to keep the bike a little more upright for traction but most of the time (street or track) you're going to put more pressure on the inside.

Dirt is a totally different story...

No, the one where he's the only one in the frame, 4th pic I think. Looks like his foot is completely off the peg. But thanks for the tips from your Bike Riding 101 handbook.

I think his heal is on the peg. The pegs are crazy high on those race bikes. You can see the shifter linkage right in front of his foot.

Re: MotoGP Pics - Better Late than Never

All of these guys are crazy good of course but Rossi is the one that amazes me most. When be is braking really hard into a slower left hander he almost always takes his left foot off the peg and practically drags it. Not sure why but it's a scary thing to watch because it looks so out of control. He does it often though so it must do something for him.

I'm shooting with a Canon EOS 40D. I upgraded from a 20D just before the GP. I was using a 70-300 IS lens with dual mode image stabilzation set to stabilize the vertical movement but had horizontal off so it wouldn't screw up the panning. I was set to shutter priority and was shooting at 1/640 and 1/800 mostly. I did have to crank the ISO up to 400 on the really foggy mornings, but I shot most at ISO 200, and maybe even some at ISO 100.

And there is today's posts for the camera geeks!
