Single lane underpass grab:



Not as pretty as yours (the underpass, not the bike ) - but plenty of very pretty vineyards in the background.



Now go find me a sign, signs I should say, that point to multiple sports grounds in different directions!
(If that should turn out to be too difficult I'd "downgrade" to a sign for a football pitch. But I believe in you.)

I'd prefer Rugby, btw.

Anyway, for the moment you should be looking for option one - two sports grounds (any sport) in done sign.
And I should be going to bed.

Thanks mate.
This special little bike is actually one out of around 20 still existing, according to Honda Suisse. It's a RC36/II (4th gen VFR) and a replica of Quick Mick's HRC Honda NSR 500, on which he won his first World Championship title in 1994.
189 pieces have been done, only for the Swiss market. I was lucky to get a very good deal on one of them.
I fell in love with it at the first glance. And although it lacks A LOT of power compared to the FZ-1 it's big fun. I hope I can ride that one for a long time.

Oh - and HAPPY BIRTHDAY, OSJ!!!
(hope I got that right..)

It wasn't about Rugby anyway.

But this sign isn't really pointing to two different sports grounds, is it?
Maybe we should wait if someone is able to grab this...?

If nobody's able to find something like that, then your soccer field grab wins.

So your football pitch (soccer field ) grab would win the "downgraded" version.
Don't know if the original tag is maybe too difficult...
So guys, let me know if it is!
Then we move on with wb57's new tag. I don't wanna slow down the game.

hey, where'd the new tag go? I thought I did this yesterday?


Oh well, the NEW TAG is;

wait, where'd the picture go? Oh crap, I must have deleted it from the camera before downloading it? Man, I'm having a dumb-ass day. I'll get one as soon as possible, but in the meantime........

Your bike with, something with a Christmas theme! My picture was in front of the Christmas shop in Grapevine, but anything will do! Christmas tree farm, some idiot that has left his decorations up all year, a house that still has a christmas wreath on the door, etc.

I'll try to get over and take the pic again, but Monday and Tuesday are my busiest days, and I won't get off until around 9:00 tonight, so pretend I did this right and get out there and find


Something Christmas Themed!

OK, here's the shot! I got up early this morning and had breakfast, so to speak, at Starbucks and reshot the Christmas store.


The TAG is, anything Christmas themed. A Christmas store, a Christmas tree farm, a Christmas wreath left on a door, the nutty neighbor down the street that leaves his decorations up all year, a Christmas themed amusement park/ride, a car that has a Christmas is the reason for the season bumper sticker, even you in that tacky Christmas sweater your Mother in Law got you, that you have to dig out and wear when she comes to visit for the holidays.

So, anything Christmas!

I love the sign. Personally I have seen a lot of Clowns @ Christmas.

Not claiming the tag!

Each year I try to keep an eye out for the earliest example of christmas commercialism.

In Australia, without Thanksgiving or Halloween to get in the way, the very first xmas advertising generally appears about the start of September (yes, the first stirrings of Spring!).

But this year, I took this photo on Sunday July 15 at about 5pm:



Closeup:



Mince pies in christmas packaging, 5 months and 10 days before christmas!

Better check the expiration date on them. They may be leftovers from last year!
