Can a n00b join in?

Here we go...
1) Canyon Themed pic (Canyon Road)


2) Sopranos pic (Holsten's ice cream shop - where the final scene took place)

here is a better view of the sign...


3) A giant (wilson's carpet dude- this could also have been another Soprano's pic)


4) Flea Market (Meadowlands market)


5) Cul-de-sac (I think I freaked out a lady that was pulling into her driveway...)


6) Twisty road sign


7) Place of technology (Thomas Edison workshop in West Orange, NJ)

You can see "EDISON" above the door. But here are some other pics from around the corner in the "Front" of the building.




This was my first attempt at grabbing a tag. I hope these pics are legit!

Yep, the Edison site is in my hometown. Saw your ride thread this morning a bit too late; would have liked to meet some of the other NJFFs and learn some nice back roads. I will keep my eyes peeled in the future. In any case it was a beautiful day to ride... saw lots of people out on the roads.

As for the new 7...

1) A "regally" named establishment.
2) artillery or military vehicle
3) larger than life version of an ordinary item
4) location with multiple of the same business in view. (Two Starbucks across the street from another would be fitting )
5) old school barber pole
6) a museum
7) "Nothing but bike". (At the edge of a beach and all we see is water? A huge open field? An endless parking lot? It's up to you to be creative... frame the pic so there's nothing else around but your bike.)

I don't think these have been done before.

Edit: I forgot the anti-file photo item. How about a bottle of water/soda on the seat.

Welcome to the game, well done.

I'm sure Docking Pilot has all the adjacent Starbucks in the region committed to memory

One thing I don't think I explicitly addressed was duplicates. It's ok to have a thing(s) in your list that's been used before.

You obviously have a low expectation Commander of good motorcycles and coffee. The 2 naturally go together if properly matched in quality and cleanliness. I fully understand why all your rides start at a Sayerville gas station Dunkin Donuts.

Fair analogy- DD and KTM are, respectively, better coffee and bikes at a lower price without the "overhead"

As in "does BMW qualify as an exciting motorcycle?" the answer should be an emphatic NO

Your right. No! Shickmiester and I choose to ride and ride big distances too.

Replacing water pumps, fuel pumps, clutch slavea, and weeklong-long slow bodywork-stripping oil changes are just meaningful ways we KTM owners bond with our bikes.

I can tell from here you're just jealous with your cheap and quick slam-bam-thank you ma'm BMW fluid exchanges.
