Wandering wallpapers

I made some wallpapers of my wandering

Since I brought home my new Concours 14 in June I've been creating a computer wallpaper with a calendar each month. Each wallpaper is created from a photo taken on one of my rides.

It helps make sitting and working at my computers all day less painful.

Just thought I'd share.


(and they are downloadable in 1080 if desired)

I rode directly out of the dealership on purchase day and into the Sierras where I stopped by Courlterville CA and grabbed this image in front of the defunct Coulterville General Store.

More pics from that day http://wanderingbackroads.com/reports/newconcours/

I'm pretty sure Keith is only playing around with ONE set of plastic not FIVE or SIX.

Nice pics Keith.  :great:

Thanks guys.

I don't think I'm in the same league with my rattle can experiments as ZG is with his awesome pro redesigns.

I do like the green - I think I favor the Copper color combination though.
