sissy bar
Is that really a thing?

the last shot is gorgeous, and the first one gives a much needed sense of scale.

Yes a sissy bar is a real thing for a motorcycle.

I think it got the name because it makes a guy get on like a girl. Instead of simply swinging your leg over the bike you might need to lift it up and over in the manner that a 'lady' would.

Although I never did on any of my bikes that have had over the years.

You are likely correct on that assessment.

Nice shots! I remember driving across Canada in the late 90's, the prairies were inspiring. I believe we camped next to a Bison farm. Its been on my mind to convince my wife to do this next summer.

Mind me asking what photo bag you're lugging it around in? I carry my Sigma 100-300 F4 in a cheap padded sleave from ebay within my Maxpedition Sitka gear slinger. I mostly like the setup as its very convenient, very rugged, and definitely doesn't look like a camera bag. I also already had it, and use it for everything else. The downside is all the weight of the lens, 3 ltds, my K3 w/ grip, and differing sets of accessories (flash, tablet, book, 1.4x TC, tripod on outside etc) the bag can get darn heavy over time. This is especially true because it is designed with one strap the goes over the left shoulder.
