Your Bike Next to Something Different

I been having some fun with the Photo Challange thread. So this is sort of an off-shoot of that idea.
One picture per post- of your bike next to something out of the ordinary.
Something you just don't see everyday.

I think it would be cool to see all the things people think are worthy of a picture -- With your bike next to it or somewhere in the picture. Even if it's just your fender, or handlebar. Get a piece of your bike in there.

Been going to Downieville for 20 years. This is the first time I've seen a bear sign. Shame, it wont be long before someone shoots some holes in it. Not me, but it's kinda funny

Shmoo43!! Dude, good to hear from you. That damper is still mounted rock solid on my bike. Once in a while I change setting just to play. I loosend it up just a tad, and when I was passing a car lastnite, and running over all those reflector bumbs at, oh, maybe 90 (maybe more), the bike tried to go into a little shake. That's the first time I ever got that in the last 4500 miles. So cranked it back stiff and rolling good again.

Glad you found me over here. The rcforum is still my home base, but this is my home away from home. Im single, so I can do that.

Welcome; good stuff here
Nice windmills another thumbs up!

Nice! That's beautiful.
We have a ton of them around here, Some people whine and complain about them but compare them with the giant steel megatructures that go between the hydro or nuc plants. They're like giant metal flowers

Re: Your Bike Next to Something Different

...and the same "something different" with the streetbike I had before the KTM. Too bad the photo gets tagged Fireblades.org, right where the knee-dragging is going on,LOL

Yeah that does suck! What's with the huge branding iron bolcking stuff? It could be a lot SMALLER.

Re: Your Bike Next to Something Different

This bridge behind our bikes is over 300ft tall, and it's a blast to ride over.

I've seen those trailers before over on ADVRider - they look pretty cool! I wouldn't want one myself, but great for those that do
