with a dslr, you will want to start shooting in the manual modes of aperture, manuel, some like the shutter mode.

But a good point to start looking for info about dslr shooting is the knowledge center on steve's and if you find youtube videos helpful. www.dslrtips.com have video workshops. And there is always the helpful member of the forum.

not really worried about cropping that is easy to correct i was looking more getting it sharper and the exposure better but thanks i didnt really notice the wheel being cut off a bit. i will make sure to get it all in there next time, i have a few of her just standing next to the bike that might have been better to show.

i just re read your post, did she ride 5 hours on the back of the R1 or does she have her own bike. Because if she rode 5 hours on the back of that. She is a trooper.

5 hours on that would be painful. My girl rides her own ride, she only jumps on the back if it for a short trip to a cafe or for errands. You girls is a trooper and must really enjoy riding to sit on that non existing seat for 5 hours. But it is good, she is geared up.

she should get her lic and get her own bike, 5 hours on a sport bike is not the most comfortable thing.

You can lower a R1, but she is nuts wanting a r1 as her first bike. R6 is 114bhp, it is plenty fast and it is narrow so it is better for shorter riders. And I would not put a new rider on a 600 RR bike either. Not idea for learning and they will hurt themselves with a bad twist of the throttle.
