Talking Tamburini on Ortega, Part Deux...

As I mentioned in the "I shoulda got a ticket" thread, me and #211 went out early Sunday morning and did unspeakable things on Ortega Highway.

Once again on the Elsinore side I spotted a photog working the popular RH (going up) sweeper where I have been snapped before. But this time, the shooter was a bit farther up, working the exit from the rider's inside, or what I call, the cliffside...'Cause there is a cliff, on that side...See how creative I can be?

I thought I should stop and introduce myself, maybe do a couple passes and request a picture, but I was just really getting going and wanted to continue strafing. I went up and over, and down past the Candy Store, eventually turning around before getting too far down the O.C. side. I retraced the upper section which includes some of my favorite corners, and decided to head to Tom's Farms for breakfast instead of stopping at the Cliffhouse.

As I approached the corner where I had originally spotted him, I noticed the photographer was just getting into his car, so I clamped 'em down and slowed to a stop at his window. I met Mr. Mark Ross, introduced myself, and explained that I really would love a pic if he got me, and gave him my card. Today, in full resolution, I received the following!


Although it isn't a pancaked pose because it's on exit, I still love it, especially the reflection in the mirrored visor.

A special thanks to Mark Ross for his generosity, you can see more of his work here: http://community.webshots.com/user/BlownBMW

Turns out he is a BMW rider, a motorsports photographer, and a really nice guy...Plus his friend Ara has a new MV Agusta F41000R which you can see here: http://good-times.webshots.com/album/563276590kwuYoN

I've invited them both...THANKS AGAIN MARK!!!
