I bought a new lens for taking motorcycle racing pictures and I was playing with it while the moon was out, so I grabbed a few shots.
I have seen a few articles lately about a few Ferraris I have seen in the past. One sold for around 18 million if I remember correctly and the other is the oldest surviving Ferrari. So I figure I should post some pictures of these particular cars that I have photographed.
The Engine in my Alfa Romeo Spider
I have not really sold my images outright before, it has always been from a gallery showing or an auction etc. So I came up with introductory pricing which can be seen here:
I am open to quantity discounts, and custom work and print sizes can be accommodated.
Motorcycles Race in the rain…
When I go to events I figured it would be fun to have girls in outfits running around handing out cards and such. I got a couple of catsuits from Essential Latex for the girls to wear. Here are some quick snapshots of the outfit:
Open source software for your Nikon DSLR which allows you to control your camera from your PC. Features such as remote trigger, time lapse, motion detection and more.
We went for a drive in my Alfa Romeo Spider. In our travels, we stopped by our friends at Seattle Used Bikes where she played service writer for a bit.
I have a 1978 TZ250E
It is a Yamaha formula 2 racing motorcycle. It has been ridden hard over the years and it has somewhat of a racing pedigree from here in the northwest. Bruce Lind originally purchased it from Yamaha. I have the tuning notes for racing it at Daytona and other tracks of note. Bruce sold the bike to Mike Sullivan who raced it for a few years. Mike Sullivan sold it to Ray Doane who managed to break a few bones racing it for a few years. I purchased it from Ray Doane about 1987.
I never transferred title to it because I did not want to lose the title in Mike Sullivan’s name.
Here is my dilemma. The motorcycle has a racing heritage with a couple ow well known riders here in the northwest.
- Do I keep it as a racebike?
- Do I restore it as a racebike?
- Do I convert it for street use?
What would you do?

I am looking for electronic ignition for my RD350
Here are some of the systems I have found:
The Dyna-S is the simplest, replacing only the points:
I am not familiar with MZB, but It also looks to have a replacement charging system
The Chinoy system, looks the most complete with a new charging system. The RD350 uses an old style relay based voltage regulator, and I have troubles with the brushes now and then.
I have the German PVL system on my TZ250E but it lacks a charging coil to run the lights, which are somewhat required on a street bike.
And this one I just found while looking for the PVL system
I have finally started the project of resurrecting my RD350B.
I did start it today, it runs fine, but cosmetically, it needs cleaning and polishing.
The transmission shifts hard, and the tires need to be balanced. I should probably get new smaller dimension tires.
Nothing beats the smell of 110 octane with Yamalube R, well maybe Castrol R, but that is not the best to run in this bike.
