    On the Road with Micro Four-Thirds by john m flores, on Flickr

    My first motorcycle travel story for RoadRUNNER Magazine using Micro Four-Thirds has been published! Check it out:

    On the Barbeque Trail in Kansas, RoadRUNNER Jan/Feb '12

    Notes about the gear I used are in my blog:

    What Blog is this?: On the Road with Micro Four-Thirds

    The bottom line? Micro Four-Thirds met my expectations and I wouldn't hesitate using it again.

    Hahaha .....Congrats John..
    So what kind of photographer u r? U should be using PRO equipment for this kind of story John.. FF camera , shallow DOF bla bla ...hhhaahahah .
    and people judge u by ur gear John and not by ur work which is simply wonderful and excellent . By the way how dare u to leave ur pro gear and use MFT? U may be sued by Canon or Nikon for this John..
    Anyway simply stunning and thanks for sharing it . U have proven gear is secondary and its the photographer who is primary ..

    Great article John, I would guess the small size of MFT is a real advantage when travelling by bike. :smile:

    Great photos and a really good read John. Made me want to get the marinade out and do a few steaks for dinner.
  5. Looks great John, and a good read too. I think I would have needed my stomach pumped after eating that much barbeque.

    Thanks all! For my next trip I may go even smaller and take just three primes - 14mm F2.5, 20mm F1.7, and 45mm F1.8. The only problem is that I've got to find my 14 - it's so small that I've misplaced it!

    Great job, John. As a fellow motorcyclist, I can appreciate the challenge of taking photo gear on the road. BTW, I used to subscribe to RoadRUNNER for a few years. Alas, I finally had to cut back because I couldn't keep up with all the magazines coming in every month.
