Default Photo Shoot: Heavily modified custom Hayabusa

My practice subject this past weekend was a heavily modified custom 2004 Hayabusa.

Present owner is a relative of mine who just bought it for a fraction of the cost that the original owner poured into it.

The shots came out OK. Couple of challenges I had - sun was too bright and the location/background was not great. The clouds came in and out and I got a few decent pics, but it was mostly just too sunny.

Anyway, here are the pics - let me know what you think!

Even the rotor hats were custom painted to match the rest of the color scheme.

And yours truly pretending to be a biker.

And look - you fell off shortly before taking the pic.

Oh wait, you got the cast from your hobby!

Great shots Hameed! As for too much sunshine? No such thing!

Now you need to get that bike to a NICE setting first thing in the morning or late afternoon and you can get some KILLER SHOTS!

Thanks guys! I liked the detail shots the best (as those didn't show my bad choice in background) as well as this pic because of the clouds in the background.
