    Crazy hi def pics. I can see you looking at the camera, or at least the general direction, through your goggles in the first one. :eek:

    haha ya i wasnt paying attention to the camera i was watching all the people around and then saw him holding it lol. i do dislike this guy and another a bit thou... nice guys but they show up to events like these and take some neat pics of people rolling in but then want 10-20 bucks per photo so you can have it without the watermark... like i get it but come on to me its just annoying..

    Other side of it is camera equipment isn't cheap, and editing photos is time consuming AF. So if you want cool photos of yourself without a watermark either hire a photographer yourself or just suck it up and buy the photo.

    Or......just be ok with a watermark :rofl:

    you seem to forget i take photos a lot and understand this? hell all the stuff i have cost me about 1800 and thats cheap! i dislike it at events like this since its not a gig you pay for its just a random pic... even my buddy who is a professional photographer hates doing this at large events.. he will put a water mark on the bottom and it normally gets interest for people to pay him to do a photo shot with him he doesnt see a reason to charge people for photos at large events...
    its a neat pic but i wouldnt pay for it personally lol so im fine with a watermark it doesnt bother me tbh. the other guy is more of a problem... he puts a water mark on where you cant even really see the photo until after you buy it so the pic could be trash!

    I don't really have pics off of my pc/phone. If I posted it on the fb/gram....I wouldn't mind the watermark anyway. Hell, I'd just give them free advertisement by posting it with their mark

    Yeah but it's still their perogative IMO. But I agree a watermark where you can't even see if it's good is a shit practice.

    got me before my edit lol

    the watermark with this one is fine the part that annoys me with this guy is he has it locked where you cant save a copy of the photo with the water mark you have to screenshot it to save the photo which is meh to me but not a big deal overall since screenshot does exist lol.

    true it is i just dont like it personally when it comes to doing photos. im no bigshot im just an idiot with a camera and i take pics of my own stuff or my friends stuff and i either get paid or i get food or i get nothing since i do it for fun its just mine and a few other friends preference when it comes to photos. ya ask me how i know... i thought it would be nice to help out a local guy that looked like he did good pics and well the pic i got was trash unfocused not edited garbage... i asked him wtf kinda pic this was and why it was worth 20 bucks and i got no response...

    I like that dude's vids. He has some good comparison vids.

    Shonky Productions in Australia is a good one too. He's spent a shit ton on his Rally. 301cc kit, ECU, susp, aux fuel tank, rally tower, etc.

    Offered that guy $3800 on that vitpilen, we'll see what he says :anonymous:

    Edit: he came back at $4500, not worth it. It's a 2018 that's sat for years, that thing would need every fluid changed, new tires, and who knows how badly seals have degraded and what moving parts have dried out. On to the next one!

    Didn't win that giveaway a few weeks ago, but did just get an email with some promo codes if anyone is buying a rabaconda or from mosko moto soon. I never see codes for mosko moto, I was surprised.

    Have you done some research on the engine? I did some digging and there are some interesting problems that most are reporting.
    Same engine as the 390 duke

    I was teams'ing with a coworker who rides earlier and sent her that one in ellensburg with the caption of "its been posted for 6 months, I should low ball the shit out of them" :rofl:

    There's another one down in central OR that looks good.

    I'm torn. I like the looks of the 18-19 ones the best, but 20-23 got better (adjustable) suspension and electronics, and the 24+ got TFT dash, even better electronics, better bars, but the worst looks of them all.
