Sometimes a picture just says what V-Strom is all about

Took this riding in Kings Canyon National Park in Central California this morning. To me this picture just says what riding a v-strom is all about. The picture is taken with an iphone 4.

Looks great Eyesurgeon. Based on today's weather, I'd guess you had about the perfect ride.

Wink Photoshop!

I'm sure the bike of your (my?) dreams looks just like that.

But everything else in the picture looks too soft around the edges, too perfect. The principal trees, and the rocks jutting (quietly) out of the pine needles...that's a 19thC Swiss landscape painting.

(You did a good job turning the ambling stream into a road, I'll give you that. But you got a little lazy when looking for a shadow for the bike - really, just lift the shadow off that backyard portrait of Oswald with the gun on his hip, and flip it? Thought no one would notice?)

EDIT: Today was my 2nd day riding, since November. Take my sarcasm, and jealousy, FWIW.
