My first try at bike pr0n, Fuji SST 2.0

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Nice ride! Try taking pictures that does not make the viewer "look down" at the bike.

Nice bike. if you want the bike to be the subject of the picture. put it against a solid background and take a level shot. or you can use a very very busy background and just focus on the bike so the background is blury.

Nice! I like the color combo.

And as long as we're talking photography, try longer focal lengths ("zoom in" and shoot from farther away). Short focal lengths (wide angle, "zoomed out") distort straight lines and make it harder to observe the sweetness of your ride.

Set your camera on a longer focal length and ditch the extreme wide angle. As mentioned, step back to at least 10-15 feet away. Nice bike. Hope you can enjoy riding it soon. Heal well.

Fuji really does make some fantastic looking bikes

You, on the other hand, need to learn about composition
