Some pics from Blackhawk on Saturday 6/2

First attempt at trying to take a few pics. They're all from the same corner because it was the easiest place for me to try and catch you guys. Now if I only had a better camera...

looks like you took quite a few. not bad for a camera you weren`t totally happy with

Operating a motorcycle. So easy, even a caveman can do it. Knowing how to ride? Priceless.

Nice pics, Nolan. Alex is lookin' good out there. So is that 191.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

i feel your pain on needing the right tool "camera" to get the job done. while my little cool camera takes great normal range pictures i like you really need the right tool for the job when it comes to this type of captured pictures.

The camera is only 5 mega pixels with 12x optical and 5x digital. Once I kinda got the timing down to catch them, I was using 24x or 30x zoom with autofocus. I probably would got better quality if I read the manual.

Mopar was deep into the 1:17s. 191 is Chris Frye, Butch's son. Both of them were flying in Advanced.

Congrats Tony!

Alex was indeed looking sharp out there.

And Mr Chris Frye can ride as fast as he needs to, impressive.
