It's  Scorpions, "Deadly Sting Suite" composition from the album "Moment Of Glory". To be precise it's compilation of "He's A Woman She's A Man" and "Dynamite" played by Scorpions and Berliner  Philharmoniker in June of 2000. Christian Kolonovits also took a hand in that project.

No matter how hard this year has been for you, I hope that on Christmas eve you’ll reach two things: a peace of mind and a harbour to your liking to have a bit of rest, so you’ll be ready for whatever challenges await you in the new year.

Merry Motorcycle Christmas and Happy New Year!

Thank you! This year it will be 14 years since I started shooting photos with a DSLR camera and like with motorcycles I have never stopped working on my skills. I have never had a "super professional" camera, sticking to slightly-better-than-basic-versions because the camera had not only to survive life in motorcycle luggage but also to leave space for other things necessary in travels. As far as I remember my first DSLR camera rod with me more than 60K kilometres.

That's cool. Photography makes one look at things from different angles. And yea, I know how it is. I took a film SLR camera (simple and basic soviet model) in my hands even earlier than when I first rode a motorcycle (and that was when I was fourteen). Then and there we had not much of a choice but black and white film, so I had it all: my father' photography enlarger device, red lights in dark room, chemicals to develop image, and so on and so forth.  

Later on I had a "flashback" of B&W digital photographing up until I started to see that I could get more with colour.  As for the Film VS Digital Photography question, for me it's like with ignition points and electronic ignition.  I had my share of both, film and points and I have nothing against them, but I grew too lazy to do them if I have a choice not to.  

However, it's worse with other things, including but not limited to:  pigs, chickens, potato/corn/vegetables growing, earth digging and so on and so forth. I still remember how to hold the scythe and how to work the hay with it without hands falling off at the end of the morning. Shit, I even could remember how to peen a scythe blade. But hit me if I am willing to do the thing.:-)

I thought that the end of last year was hard... Well,  Russians' attempt to invade my country (started around 5 AM today) proves how hugely wrong I was. Now I wonder if I ever would be able to continue this project of ours (as well as other projects).
