I hope that you are not riding wearing your Speedo?

actually no choice. yes, the BMW is a motorcycle. though i usually think of it 
as a family member. so much time together without any problem!

Here is a link to the processing lab in Kansas city.  That BMW I am assuming it 
is a motorcycle?  I hear that the Fujichrome 50 is quite good but I have not 
had a chance to use it.  I am going to New Orleans and Texas in two weeks and 
if the bus goes through Chicago I will buy some at Calumet Camera.  A great 
store.  I have been there before and the have a whole wall of fridges just 
dedicated to storing and selling film.  I usually stock up when I get there, or 
else I will order some in bulk on line when I return.  Unfortunately, there 
used to be a Kodachrome processing plant in Toronto(near where I live) that 
also closed.  The closest one to you would have been in Switzerland, but they 
closed that one also.  So there is really no choice.

joachim, 
thanks for the news about the kodachrome in the email. just a way to wait 
lighter :-) italy is far away from kansas city!
yes, the 25 asa was really great. how i miss those times. in 1983 during my 
coast to coast and back trip driving my BMW R100T (i still use it) i shot 15 
kodachrome rolls. 10 of them were 25 and 5 were 200 asa (if i correctly 
remember).

I just bought 4 rolls of Kodachrome 64 as well.  I remember the 25 the best 
film ever made in my humble opinion.  Plus, now you have to send it to Kansas 
city for processing, however, there is something about the anticipation of 
getting the developed slides in the mail.  Then seeing them is another story 
entirely.  

Hopefully, the price will come down a bit and I can buy a 35mm f2 or even 
better 1.4 in the near future to complete my outfit.  

Joachim

i use an R4s since 1984 with 35 curtagon, 60 macro elmarit and 180 apo-telyt. i 
concur that outfit will outlive me and maybe will get higher value from now on. 
i do not think to sell it in any way and, strange enough, my wife agree... we 
alll love Leica (she use a leica mini beside a nikon coolpix)


btw: i have 9 kodachrome 64 asa in the freezer. its time to give it a try!

Same for me. I have a R6 and R8 with loads of  lenses. I'm pretty sure
at least the R6 will outlive me.

I recently had DAG CLA my de-panda'ed silver chrome Leicaflex SL.  For
sensory feedback it's easily my favorite camera.  I have more SL bodies
than I need now but I'd have a hard time parting with any of them.  As long
as there's film and either DAG or Sherry Krauter I'll be using a Leica
reflex, R10 or no.
