Chrome, originally uploaded by bikerphoto.

There was lots of chrome at the Mid-atlantic Motorcycle Show in Timonium, MD. I try to make it to this show every year. It features all the new bikes from the local dealers, and custom bikes from all the custom bike shops in the area. There are all sorts of vendors selling riding apparel, luggage, and accessories. Take a look at more photos at I still have pointing to my flickr photos, but it will be a real site soon.

My mission was 1) take some photos that I will be able to put on, and 2) to find a nice small duffle bag that would work on top of my hard side bags. But I really did not find what i was looking for at the show. I really like using the soft luggage from Revpack - -- So I will be buying a pair of small "stuff packs" from them.

This is the wheel of the same bike. These photos are a little on the dark side. I was determined to not use flash. Flash would have ruined the reflections in the chrome, so I cranked up the ISO on my Canon 30D as far as it would go to 1600. The custom Harleys at the show were fantastic! So were the custom metric bikes, like this Suzuki Volousia.
