    For the fourth year in a row, I've acted as event photographer for the Canadian Women's Ride Day Foundation annual women's motorcycle ride to raise funds for local women's shelters and related causes. This year the weather didn't do the event any favours, and while it was warm and didn't really rain, the threat of wet roads kept many away. Still, a good time was had by everyone who did attend. As always, comments, critique and suggestions always welcome.

    Nice set, as always. Keep up the good work.

    I bet that event in the last one was fun to watch.

    Nice shots. Looks like a pretty good event! I like the sidecar shot the most of these--the beer toast behind, and the guy snapping cellphone pics, both background details really add to it!

    Good stuff. But I have to say I'm not sure pink is the best color for a Harley Davidson.

    Fun set. Love the dog in the first one with the goggles on straddling the handle bars, that made me chuckle.

    Thanks! Yes, the last one was hilarious, especially as that was after beer o-clock!

    Thanks Peeb! :)

    Thanks Derrel, it was. Attendance was a little low as there was the threat or rain in the morning, but everyone who showed had a good time.

    Thanks Fred. If you ever get up this way, I'll introduce you to the owner of the that bike. I'm pretty sure your only comment will be, "Lovely choice of colours, Ma'am!" :lol:

    Thanks JC, Tessie is a BIG hit wherever she goes:
