This photo was shot with my Canon G9 point and shoot camera while riding my motorcycle down a hill. We had driven all the way up this 24 mile mountain, only to reach a locked gate due to snowfall. We turned around and instead of cruising back down normal, we turned our bikes off and coasted all the way to the bottom. It was an amazing feeling going 70 mph down a mountain on a motorcycle and all you hear is the wind and your friends laughing, good times.

    A couple years back I saw this guy in fornt of me riding a big harley, I follewed him (in my car) on a open hilly road near Flagstaff Arizona. Everytime I got over a big hill I would see this crazy guy standing on his seat with his arms out stretched. He would stand for awhile until a new hill came and he would sit down again. He kept doing it over and over. I often wonder if that guy was a man named Indian Larry. (I have a feeling it was)
    This is a nice picture, BTW
