    Motocross

    We had to get up at 5am to get to the Motocross but it was well worth it.
    I use to ride bikes but never in this manner but it was what I did with friends.
    So it is close to my heart and sadly age and arthritis has said not to me riding again.
    So it was good to see these belting around the track.

    I have just put a sample of what we seen on the day and I hope you like them.
    The trip was well over 400 kilometers away from us and the drive was long.
    The actual day was cold, by the end it had got windy and then rain.
    We had to leave before the end as I had been sitting for too long and we had a long trip to get home again.
    But I would do it every weekend as I really enjoyed it.
    I can suffer when I get home.

    So on the day I took well over 4000 photo's and this is why it has taken so long to find the better ones.
    And then delete the ones I had to.

    Thanks to you both for your comments,
    These are my 1st real action shots and I know I have got a way to go with them but I am completely happy with what i got.
    Sadly the day turned wet and cold and my pain levels were sky high so we called it quits early.
    But being there made me think about a rain coat for my camera.
    Found some on ebay but I am going to give it a go at making my own.
    As I made a cover for my camera on cold nights when I take the moon shots.
    And it works well.
