Help me choose

Back from my recent trip to North Carolina on the FJR. There are now FOUR photographers on the Dragon, each one taking 3 to 11 pics of you as you ride past. We rode it 3 days (going in, going out, and going to the Foothills Parkway) so they took like 90 photos of us. I'd like to buy one or two photos of the FJR for my photo wall upstairs, to add to my pics from my ST 1300, my 13 CB, and my 14 dlx that were taken on the Dragon.

So, pick your favorites out the my favorites of the 90 photos they took lol

I happen to like #8, really like showing the bikes following behind going through the curves. Like #1 as well.

My initial reaction is 3, 4, or 5 because there aren't other riders/things in the background. From a stance/framing perspective, I like #8 because you can see the curves of the road(if you can blur out the other riders).

My trip to the Dragon was 10 years ago (time flies) not sure how many photogs were there at the time and don't remember exactly how many pictures they took but when I was going through them and buying the pictures my wife asked me hey how many of those are you gonna buy. I said all of them. How often do you have a professional photographer taking pictures of you while you're riding.
