    Isn't it interesting how a photo can stimulate so many emotions at once. Awe at the storm clouds. Encouragement from the sun shine. Admiration for one of the most beautiful bikes ever produced that looks at speed even though parked.

    Great picture!

    Dear Abby,

    Which would take longer, washing my bike or making it look clean via photoshop?

    Dear SRAB,

    I wonder why you would even ask. Everyone knows that using photoshop would take "virtually" not time at all.

    No, no, don't thank me dear. It is my pleasure.

    Signed,

    I'm sorry Mr. Webmachine, but...

    It's missing a big red blocky date stamp and that woosh-click-shpeee shutter sound effect when I roll my mouse over it!



    btw, it's a beautiful shot. Great choice for POTW!

    I'm not sure I understand. Could you show us what you mean?

    I agree. As pictures of bikes go, this one's a real beauty. Commendable photography of a beautiful bike.
