The most reliable (and fun) vehicle I've ever owned was my lowly BMW R26 (single cylinder, but still a Beemer) back in the early 1960s.

Oh, to be young and foolish again (like Jeff?)!   Wink

Having watched most of the videos (very informative and helpful) I really warmed to Jeff, I like his pointy and factual style a pleasant change from those who take two sentences to say something and miss the point.

Me too.  Again, thankfully not.

I also have benefited from Schewe's straightforward technical advice.  It has made me a more grounded technician of photography/post-processing with a better understanding of when to push my pixels for more and when to give up. 

...and this I will say about judging the quality of other "popular" sources of photo advice, look at their photography to see if its good.  If it isn't, ignore their commentary (at least take it with a huge grain of salt). Schewe 'passes this test with flying colors.

Bought a new K75T years ago.  Still miss how smooth that engine was.

Shutter speed is crucial in photography somehow.

Wow...now that's sobering...obviously since I'm NOT dead, that had never occurred to me :~)

Truth be told, this whole thread is mildly disconcerting to me. I really do appreciate all the kind words–but it's not something I'm really used to here on LuLa. I tend to be called the LuLa Pit-bull most of the time because, well, I tend to call things as I see them and don't spend a lot of time soft peddling my opinions. I try to be civil but I don't worry about being polite.The way I describe my approach is to be "verbally aggressive" (although some people think of my approach more like a scorched earth policy).

So, thanks for all the kind words...I do appreciate it, but can somebody please start an argument somewhere so I can get back to my more natural style of posting?

:~)

OK, Jeff, I'll try. How about this:

"That shirt you're wearing looks like it has NO color management at all! It might be a jpeg straight out of an Instamatic!"   Grin

Touche! You got me, Jeff. Now I've gotta take my Instamatic to my dealer and ask him where the Raw button is.    Embarrassed

Oh, yes, they did...back then it was called FILM...you shot it and then you had to process it! That was the precursor to "raw".

Having been on the receiving end of some of your barbs, I nonetheless appreciate your candor as the PC nonsense is rather tiresome. Maybe it's due to your proximity to Canada, as I notice Michael also is a strait shooter.

In any case, I've always appreciated your taking the time to enlighten us mere mortals. Nothing like getting it from the horses...mouth.

Besides, your mother dresses you funny. (There's two for ya)

Never had a Beemer, but after a run of Hondas, ended up with an Italian. Laverda RGA 1000 triple(the 120 crank, not the 180 Jota). I'll say nothing about Harleys, other than their "exciting" handling characteristics.
