So jealous!
I've got a Nikon D50 (D100?) with a 1.5f lens, but I think something's wrong with it. I can't get a clear picture in the EVF and every shot I take with it comes out blurry.
Hmmmm. The D100 is a superior camera to mine. Have you tried a different lens? Is the sensor clean? Is the mirror clean? Can you try focusing manually?

I have decided I am not enjoying the rides on my 1100cc V-Star. Aside from the loud pipes...I am finding it a bit heavy. My thumb joints aren't as good as they used to be, so once in a while I get a bit wobbly hanging on to the handlebar when I need to do something slow...like backing out of my yard in the dirt and stopping on gravel. Riding at street and highway speed is ok, but I need a new throttle rocker. That will help with the longer rides.

I have looked, but so far haven't been able to find stock pipes for a 2000 V-Star. Currently, the bike is LOUD. Too loud for enjoyment.

What pipes are on it? Perhaps you could order some aftermarket baffles?
