    Lynn_M Its all about fast bikes & fishing !!!! :-)))))

    Just wondering what other hobbies and interests everyone has apart from fishing on here ? :)

    Mine are photography, ive always had an interest but just started to take it seriously over the past year.

    Then theres bikes, nothing beats going out for a good blast ( ahem apart from chucking a line out ;) )! im without 2 wheels atm as i needed a car for winter but will have another by summer , my last bike was a Yamaha R6 and loved it to bits 8) love bike racing both track and RR

    Then i have a keen interest in reptiles and inverts mainly snakes and tarantulas, cut both of my collections right down for the time being it was beginning to become an obsession lol !

    Lynn :)

    Riding road bikes and crossers,not been out on my road bike for a couple of years now,she's gathering dust in the garage but going up in price ;D more into crossing at the minute on either my yz125 or my mrs yz85 big wheel :)

    Hoping to get to the TT this year,work always seems to get in the way of it but been to donnington to watch superbikes and motogp plenty of times,it's ruined it now it's at Silverstone it's just that bit too far for us northerners to do it in a day,hoping to get to Assen this year as well ;)

    Love Donnington, was lucky enough to get full VIP hospitality at BSB with MCE in 2012 we got both grid walks , exclusive trackside talk with Stuart Higgs, pilli ride with Michael Howarth which was the dogs danglies , free food and drinks but the best bit was i got to present the trophies in race one and with Brookes winning the double and me been a massive fan you can imagine how big my smile was ;D !! Big Eds been good to me also bagged another pilli ride with howie at Oulton last year and we got tickets to go to the premiere of i-superbiker in London then onto the afterparty in Soho i was absolutley trollied that night lol when its a free bar take full advantage ;)

    Bit pi$$ed off with BT for getting full rights of motogp coverage its gonna cost me £12 pm to watch it robbing barstewards :mad: be interesting to see how Cal gets on with the Duc this season !

    Used to love superbikes, I had a couple of Gixer 750s but a family and self employment meant give up :-(
    Now into mountain bikes and MMA not both together as that would be more dangerous than the superbikes :))

    i am now a Canon Team Lynn , i started with a point and shoot ,then got a Sony A 330, now i have a canon 7D teamed with a 18-135 kit lens and a Sigma 150-500 super telephoto, and a canon 2,8 70-200 is l series , my next lens will be a wide angle i think ,

    you should stick at the Guitar , it is great when it all clicks together , bar chords were the last thing i stuggled with,
    there is a great free site to learn , here is a link

    It was the 7D i nearly went for but having used Nikon i thought id stick with the devil i know and chose the D7000 lol , im after the 24-70mm f2.8 for mine but need to save a few more pennies first ;) then i think a nice little 60mm micro lense will give me what i need for a while , got the kit lens then bought the 55-300 and a 50mm f1.8 prime , its the cost of the lenses lol !!
    Will give the guitar another bash once ive got more time on my hands :)
