I don't know, I don't think the poster crashed into the side of someone's van while trying to show off for the camera.

The triangle is too big for the tailgate.
Why don't you just mount the lower portion of the triangle with, say, two bolts onto the flat panel portion of the tailgate and have the top stick a little above the tailgate top? That would make it a lot more visible in all situations...

We were told to gently remind the following cyclists that tickets were being issued, and as participants, they were required to follow the rules of the road. This bit of wisdom was quickly passed among the riders and the rest minded their p's and q's during the day.

All I got to say is, that some people need to be reminded, and if a ticket gets their attention, so be it!

Obligatory pic...

This has gotta hurt...

The FAIL is strong with this one. Nice Chrome helmet to go with the 20+ yr old cruiser. Hopefully his watch will save him from any road rash. Wonder if his date puts out?[/QUOTE
Why do I keep thinking this guy is from Joorsey?

Proof that fellow BMW riders can be just as much a dolt as the cruiser boys. ATGATT gets you little splattered across the hood of a Buick.
A good motorcycle is a terrible thing to waste...
