Harley-Davidson exhaust pipes. I love the starbursts that the FA-50mm Macro produces.

Nicely done. You don't see too many fishtail exhausts anymore. That Harley Davidson wheel and tire is a feast for the eye... the two tone fender, all that chrome, all those spokes, a whole lotta' whitewall and that big disc brake .

Nice pix and good eye...spotting and isolating those bits of H-D.

To an old guy like me, all those styling cues (except the disc brake) brought together are from a different era...I'd say the 1950's. When I looked at your picture, it reinforced why Harley Davidson is popular...just looking at one makes an old boy think of earlier simpler times...or at least they seem that way, when viewed through my rose tinted glasses.

They were having a big sale going on at the HD dealership.... the largest one in the state. So many Harleys! So many photo ops! So much chrome! So much testosterone! ..... and a lot of foxy motorcycle mamas in attendance, too! But, I didn't want to get caught zooming in on any of them! And, there's not a thing wrong with rose-colored glasses!
