Just an intro,

My name is Don,been taking snap shots for years with various cameras but just recently got hooked on this digital thing & the fact that you can share it with others via these forums is great.

main interest is motorcycles, I have a Triumph sprint waiting for repair after being kicked over outside work Christmas eve, got sick of waiting so new tiger is on the way, yoohoo.

I sold a bakery 3 years ago to get a life but find I have more work than I need as a relief baker, still got to pay for that new lens somehow

Looking forward to posting a few pics.

Gday Don,
Welcome to the forums. I have ridden Fireblades for 10 years and thinking of making the change to the trumpy. Looked at the Tiger and the Sprint(08's) - I cannot decide. I like the black Tiger, it is awesome. Also looked at the BMW K1200S and the R1200GS, but I cannot go past the savings of the Trumpys.
Motorcycling first then the Pentax - have fun.
