08-Jan-09

In a war this close, choosing the victor is far less fun than waging the battles themselves. I say this because it was a tough call and regardless of outcome, have thoroughly enjoyed both of these memory-capture devices. Aesthetics and usage While I generally prefer the color black to silver, I can’t get over the […]

Canon Civil War – SD880IS vs SD990IS – part two

26-Dec-08

Through the eyes of the Combatants… (aka Sample Photos!) Seeing is believing and this battle aims to expose what each competitor is made of.

Sizing up the Competitors These are Canon’s brand-new Digital ELPH ultra-compact point and shoot cameras, currently top of the line in each of their convoluted-naming-scheme classes.

police v-strom motorcycles in Montrose, Colorado

29-Aug-08

this fine specimen of the Suzuki DL650 is the 2007 version outfitted for the man.     I particularly like the luggage bags – utilitarian minimalistism yet stylin’. and while I think the flat black model would look better as a police vehicle, the befitting expression of the boys in blue makes up for it.

classic marketing verbage at its finest: Do not permit your system to run down. ORDER VIGOR’S HORSE-ACTION SADDLE … STRENGTH TO THE SYSTEM, BRACING THE NERVES, STIMULATING THE LIVER, QUICKENING THE CIRCULATION, BRIGHTENING THE MIND, AND CURING CORPULENCE AND GOUT. [via photobasement]

this suzuki enduro color scheme inspired wee belongs to stromtrooper user Surrlibrumm. this look makes the yellow and new orange wee subtle by comparison. here’s an suzuk’ enduro in not-so-suave action:

perhaps they were burned one too many times by those pesky uber high speed sport bike utilizing criminals. and how handy, high speed tear gas deployment! it reminds me a bit of The Dark Knight’s new two-wheeled ride…

presenting human ingenuity: the mowercycle

via slantback, via this guy’s flickr; neither have any further information into this great technology meld. it’s green powered, great exercise and honestly makes me want to plant a lawn (and build a mowercycle of mineown.)
