  • MikeyC Are you off your meds? First you randomly post a picture of a dam and then you say you'll "borrow from another site and say a picture of your bike with a road kill" when that exact challenge was located two posts above yours?? Maybe you should lie down for a bit.

    • Oops! Wondered where that picture went What are we looking for here?

      • Not sure myself. About a week ago I suggested "Next up: your bike next to roadkill; fresh or aged. For your sake, hopefully not something you hit yourself with your bike" unless someone wanted to drop in with a good candidate for "the oldest, or most beautiful, or most architecturally diverse church in your area" from the previous unresolved challenge. Then Duke posted about a church building, but it had no photo that I could see. I thought finding roadkill would be about as easy as it gets, but no entries so far.

        This thread had a good long run and was hopping for a while, but seems to be on life support now. At this point, maybe we just accept MikeyC random dam photo and move on.

        • I went on a short 206 mile ride today and saw a fresh deer kill and a decomposed deer kill but didn't think to stop. Just believe me, and give me the award!

            • Here's an easy one if it hasn't been done before! Your bike in front of a strip club!

                I think they've all been done before, just have to recycle them from afar so they're not remembered.

            • I have seen many road kills, but it's hard to slam on the brakes and turn around when your enjoying the ride I just look and say " I'll stop at the next one"
              At least at the strip club you don't mind stopping a minute and the possible conversation could be much better.

                Too often the road kill sights are not the best spot to park your bike for a pic. At least not around here! I had to dispatch a big doe a few weeks ago, under direction of the local sheriff's department, after I passed her at dusk in the center of a two-lane highway, laying down, head and neck up, watching traffic zip by as she laid between, which is exactly what happened when I passed her (in my SUV). Right side legs were shattered but I think she could have survived. She was nice enough to let me pull her from the highway and rest along the roadside, and then let me comfort her by petting her head and neck for a while. It was so sad to have to put such a magnificent creature down through little fault of her own. Hunting is a different matter, but crossing from one field to another and getting clipped just sucks. Way too many deer go down that way around here. As a firefighter I had to treat a rider who was ripped off his bike after hitting a deer. No fun.

                I was thinking of this challenge the other day while in my car. I passed a couple road kill opportunities and thought I could come back on the bike. But damn the smell was so bad I wasn't sure I wanted to get anywhere near that on the bike. At least with the strip club the smells should be better.

                  Actually, any of the aforementioned. Hey Boys, It's Dad, just letting you know I'm still watching. I never imagined this thread would go on so long, and I say that with all humility. Let it die if it wants to die. I can always come up with something else.

                • No smiley faces? While we were fixing a saddle bag after getting the strip club we looked across the street and there was this big smiley face on the wall of a car lot. So if you’re in Springfield Oregon there’s a smiley face there.

                  corrected some grammar

                    • I've been keeping an eye out, but haven't seen any big smiley faces. Thought I might get lucky with a water tower, but nothing near me. Maybe somebody else might have one in their neighborhood. Looks like Illinois and Michigan have several.

                        • We had a couple of nice smiling faces there but no smiley face Should we change the find? How about your bike in front of a museum?

                          • Not sure if anyone is still playing this or not. I kind of felt like this was cheating a bit as I have an old fuel barrel that someone painted a smiley face on. As you can see it's no longer in use but sitting on a pallet behind an old building here.

                            If this works for everyone, the next challenge is your bike in front of something Halloween related since it's the season. Since it's early it can be your bike in or around a pumpkin patch. Or if you have a neighbor (or wife/SO) that likes to decorate way to early that works as well. Let's see what you've got!
