Postby Trail on Tue 15/Jun/10 11:41am

take an "extreme/danger" panda

lots of examples here (and explaination of the name) http://www.flickr.com/groups/pandaportraits/

rules are
1)both hands must be off the bars
2)look into camera
3)bike must be in motion, no cheating by leaning the bike out of shot
4)you must take the picture yourself

Lets see what you can do Vorbers :thumbsup:

I have enough trouble staying in one piece with both hands on the bar, no way am I holding up a 7D!

Good point RJD... anyone who does it with a full on SLR get bonus kudos!! Anyone able to do it on a bumpy off-road trail gets extra kudos as well!

However all phone pix, P&S cameras etc welcome, as are all styles of riding!!

I will post one up as soon as I get out on my bike with a camera!
