Artist Painting Yee Haw !!! Move over Herb Ritz, I'm a comin' - Panoche Rd- Hwy J1

Always searching for that one special magazine cover shot out of the hundreds of pics I normally take on a ride. Finally got a chance to work through my Panoche Rd Hwy J1 pics, and what do I spy?

Quite enamored with this shot, this is Phil (Strega 51)...

Will post rest of them later Stay tuned!

Yep, beautiful, Tim. Crisp in background and foreground, excellent composition and perspective, and suggestive of motion, coming uphill. K, I guess I need to start a moto mag just to put yer photos on the cover!! (Too bad Good Housekeeping hasn't discovered moto touring yet. )

Thanks, Tim!

My suggested title? "From the Light into the Shadow" or "As I ride upon the mountain of the shadow of...". Great pic. The cloud cover causes quite a contrast. The power towers in the background look like ghosts. The bike looks absolutely mean. How did the road traverse those moguls? I love this site. Always something worth looking at. Keep those toes pointed IN Strega 51!

Re: Yee Haw !!! Move over Herb Ritz, I'm a comin'

Okay - here's the rest. I did whip up a whole bunch of long-winded poetic text, but I'll save that for a new and improved webpage on the lil gem.

Panoche Rd - San Benito Co, Central Coastal California, aka Highway J1

First of course a map of where we're headed today....



Gassing up in Tres Pines (just south of Hollister, CA). Not Phil's bike, but it could be. Note the exhaust cans & the mirrors (cafe style mounted on the bar ends). Beauty! These guys were headed over to Laguna to ride some laps on the track.

Overview... this western portion, the pavement was deceptively good!
