I took all 10 of these shots from the back of our motorcycle at 55 miles per hour!

This afternoon we took the bike out for a little drive about 30-40 minutes from home. It was a really pretty ride down two-lane roads to the White River, through the early fall colors on the mountains and cattle fields!

However, about 5 minutes after we started for home, it began to rain really hard and a stiff wind was blowing. We pulled over and put on our “Frogg Toggs” to stay dry and drove on home at about 35 miles per hour! It was SO cool!

This is me reflected in the back of Larry's helmet

And then the rains came!

Heading home….

      WOW!! I miss those days! I wasn't fond of riding in the rain was a little scary fears of slipping?? Great 1st shot Larry must have had his helmet really polished up? Ken and I could talk to each other also we had a blue tooth system so we could use our cell phones or just talk to each other helmet to helemet. When we got to a fork in the road to go separte ways to work we could use our cell phones and still talk to each other all the way to work. Thanks for the ride!!

      Cool, and you don't even have to roll down the window to get a clear shot:) Great shot in #1 and I love the photo of the bridge between the trees in 3.

      Amazing!! Really like the Barn #5 and the Clouds #9. Sounds like Larry was having fun too, with his back seat rider.

      I'm still drying out!!!!! It was NOT 55 ( you won't let me go that fast). I KNOW we have those headphones so we can talk to each other; I KNOW when we're approaching a curve, I KNOW how fast we're going, I KNOW how to read the speedometer - AND, I KNOW how to turn OFF the intercom . . . .

      Very good shots...especially while sitting on the back of a motorcycle and moving so fast! That's some beautiful country Brenda...and probably fun to see from a motorcycle?

      So cool Brenda! I am frequently shooting from the inside of moving vehicles. Derek is usually pretty good about it but sometimes he pretends he doesn't hear me ask, "Will you please pull over" until we are long passed the thing I wanted to shoot. Oh yes, I AM onto him.
