    General Lee is back

    Paul our sales manager sampled a hot rod orange 951, we might have to offer this color what do you think.

    Jeff,

    You guys should set up a poll for one special color that is chosen by the people. that would be pretty sweet.

    waaaaah. Sorry Mr Intense, I have never met you, but I really am starting to dislike you, tempting us with these hot pics..

    That is a fantastic looking bike - I was holding off pulling the trigger on a 951 order for a short while - if you are going to offer that colour then I will happily wait........

    Get the hint?

    i gotta say, i dont really love it alot. maybe its the shade of orange or the light in the photo. i prefer the flo orange style to the pumpkin ktm orange. the best shade of orange you guys ever had was the maxxis M1s. The years w Bailey and Kirckaldie on the team. not the silver and orange - the straight up orange front and rear triangle. it was a different shade. the orange was soooo bright. those were beautiful bikes.

    but, yes run it because more choices are cool.

    Izzit a clear based orange coating? It looks great but a solid powder coat coating will be better I think as it will look more to racing colours....?? btw great job!

    I sold my Hot Rod orange 6.6 to a buddy of mine and every time we go riding together I miss it. Dang what a good looking bike.

    Is that orange a bit different than the one you used on the 6.6? Looks like a works orange with a clear coat like someone else said. Very cool.

    why is the posted shot so blurry? don't tell me that's some effect aso. with all the super sharp images that jeff's been posting, i had to get my eyes checked if something was wrong.

    I noticed the same with Jeff's other shots. Jeff I dont know ya talked with you at Sea Otter a littel this year but Lancaster said you are a cool cat so I am throwing out some product shot advice. F 1.2 is sick for portraits in some instances or isolation shot. Say the Intense headbadge close up so the rest of bike is just washed away. Side shot with 85 mm from about 30 feet I am guessing the DOF is tiny.

    Try using about F 4-8 if you still want BG blur. Typically I shoot bikes around F 13 but cut them out or have a BG left in of white/grey. Also I think you save method is affecting image quality also. If using PS don't use SFW it is garbage. We use it at my work but our sites have 100's of images per page. You own shots just save as instead..... hope that helps. Got any ?'s hit me up.

    Oh also that 951 looks sick. Got to cut out the images i took at Otter of them.
    Here is a moto I shot awhile bike. I used a big F number F 4 i think just do to light. I was lucky and it was pretty sharp front to rear.

    Is it me or does intense...

    ... make the best darn looking bikes out there. 951 sram, general lee, the joker green spider, the blue tracer vp, et al. Of course I settled for steatlh black on my tracer but I'm kind of a low key guy anyway.

    That Hot Rod Orange on the 6.6 was a sweet color. I do dig the orange flavor on the 951.

    Awesome color for sure.

    I'm trying to think of a color that wouldn't look good on a 951...

    Of course the stealth black paint is not without it issues...

    Seems to mark up/wear pretty easily. White would have been my first choice but it was a hammy down bike.

    Is this a genuine possibility?

    It seems like my Blue one that i ordered on the day of the 951 release is going to take another 6 weeks at least, so if i'm waiting that long i might as well wait and get a Hot~Rod Orange one instead.

    Jeff? Can you confirm whether this will take longer again?
