Hi,

I'd love to get an opinion from a professional about carry my new Nikon dslr on my M900 Monster. I've got a tank bag and a tail bag.

I've carried laptops in my tailbag for years without problems, but my camera has more moving parts.

What do the pros do?

Thanks!

Sorry I posted out of topic, but I'm hoping to get an opinion from a MC.com staffer rather just any yahoo. Thx!

I'm just a "yahoo," but if you shove it up your ass, it should be cushioned from any engine vibrations etc.

He said he wanted an opinion from a MO Staffer, not a "yahoo" like you.

Geez pal, can't you take an insult when you get one?
I've got a "Staff" for you.........

I'm not technically a pro, but I'm better than you. You don't give us a lot of fairly important information. Like what lenses, lighting, and other items your going to carry. Do you use a tripod?

I'm going to guess that you have the kit lens and nothing else. Wrap it in a towel and stick it in a backpack, ya yahoo.

The old MO photo mule Bandit had a luggage deal behind the back seat with foam cut-outs for all the camera parts.

And certain English road racer types got real mad when you beat them up Latigo Cyn. on the photo mule, with 50 lbs of camera gear in the "trunk".

Remeber that one, "One Fast Brit"? Hahahhaha

As a general rule the "I'm fast" crowd ain't.....I use to find that back in my MotoCrossing days, some guy all decked out in his Torsten Hallmans, Hi-Points, Bell Star with obligatory Jim Pomeroy stripes and Jofa stylishly hanging from it's strap out popping wheelies and cross-ups during practice on his Maico or what have you would be the guy I used for a berm in the first or second corner on my Yamaha......of course "the f*ckin' rain's making my bike run rich" was the usual excuse.......


As far as your camera goes I agree with Ken, probably best to stick it up your ass......

You can spend your money on accessories and "upgrades" or you can spend your money on gasoline. Which is more likely to make you a better and faster rider?

I see that all the time during hunting season too. Rich clowns with fancy expensive Weatherby or Sako rifles who can't hit the broad side of a barn door. Better to buy a Remington and spend the money you save on ammo and range fees.

Using IE? Go to internet options/general and click on "delete cookies" and "clear history". Shut it down and start it up again. If problems persist then reboot. You should download "spybot search and destroy". It's free. Install it and run the scan and prevention facilities.

If you continue to have browser problems remove the browser entirely and re-install it.

Thank you very much Seruzawa, I'll try. Also I think the spybot has already been installed. Also I will probably have to have the wife reinstall the browser Iam not to efficent on the pc. Funny thing is I tried my wifes pc at her business and it did the same exact thing, so essentially I figured it was the site.
