    M9 - vibration and resilience thereof

    I'm taking a 2K mile motorcycle trip here shortly. I'd really like to take the M9, but it has recently been back to Leica for calibration, along with 3 of my favorite lenses. It's now spot on.

    With reasonable precautions, i.e. good packing in a well padded case, securely tied down, am I risking having the calibration thrown out? I have some other cameras I could take, but the M9 would be ideal, assuming it's not going to cost me another trip back to the mother land.

    I am sure your M9 have traveled longer distance when it came to you from Germany...
    I wouldn't worry about it, personally.

    Mine travels all the time in a jeep on all sorts of roads some of which are even paved. While you might have more vibrations on a bike I'd say you whould be safe. Good luck on the trip and remember to share a couple images here!
