  • I can't believe this thread is over 3 years old. That's gotta be some kind of record.

      The life blood of this thread is the love of riding our bikes to begin with, especially now in good weather! Gives us an excuse to jump on and head out for a short (or LONG) ride, when we otherwise might not have. Good thread!

      Not sure about a record,, but I love to see it continue. It gives us a chance to converse a bit when we're not asking how to fix/modify something. It's almost like a meet -n- greet without the face to face interaction.

  • Next up: in honor of Father Pobasturd and his 3 year old thread: your bike with something/someone 3 years old. Grandchild, pet, beard...

      I have an idea but I have to figure out how to take the picture.

  • Photo of my wearing 2019 T-shirt and sitting on bike and then better photo of T-shirt. That didn't exactly do what I wanted it to do. Oh well, does this work?

      Lol. Good job

  • What about a photo in front of a small coffee shop that is not a chain. That should be easy enough. I don't want to cause someone to have to burn too much of that expensive gasoline!

      It's too bad we can't give a "like" to comments. I'd give one to Kmartcivic.

      Coffee shop, as in go in and sit down, or does a drive-thru count? :-)

      Cool shirt, BTW!

      thanks, yes let's limit it to sit down shops.

  • I have a several little coffee shops scoped out within a tank of fuel distance. I think it might be harder than I thought and the wrong kind of weather to be drinking coffee. I like a cup of cappuccino double expresso. Nice smooth taste with a little kick. Surely someone likes a cup of coffee?

      These things often have a couple targets completed in a short span and then drop off for a while. I think it's a good target. I was out riding a bit yesterday and to be honest I'd forgotten what the challenge was. I go by one on my way to work that I'm almost certain isn't a chain. I'll try to remember to stop by after work and get a pic.

    I went to a large coffee shop over an hour away from home this morning. I don't think it would qualify because it's not a small shop. I took a photo anyway since I was there. I figured I had better get out of town before I messed up more. I tried to park around the corner but there is a fire hydrant there so I rode around the corner where there was a camera and signs saying that you had to pay with an app to park. So I took the photo and left only to realize it was a one way street and I was going the wrong way, thank God it's not a busy street. It's Rhino Coffee in Shreveport, LA

    • I too had forgotten to look, I'll be looking now

      • Mr. Miyagi thanks for the reminder of the target. This used to be someones house several years ago. It had been remodeled as a commercial storefront and this coffee shop moved in a couple years ago. Didn't know if it would make it there but it's always busy. Helps it's the only one around outside the Starbucks inside the grocery store where I was parked.

        If this completes the challenge. Since we're approaching fall and football season. You're bike in front of a football stadium/filed. Bonus points if the goal posts are in the pic as well.

          There's actually a coffee shop close to where I live that is similar. It's an old house that has been remodeled to be a coffee shop. It makes a good cappuccino. There was an old woman who lived there many years ago who was a world traveler. She was known to collect things from all over the world and bring them back to this little one horse town.

      • That looks good to me. So now in front of a football stadium you say. Filled with people?

          Ha! Our hometown's in the center of wheat country, but we're up at the cabin in Metaline Falls! Does this mean I have to ride home just to shoot this? And we DO have GIANT pieces of machinery.

          I think one of the Midwest guys will have this one.

          Congrats, and good challenge!

          Well that would be pretty easy for me being in corn country. Question, should this be out in the field or on a farm? I can drive by the implement dealer and park next to the biggest one they have. But that seems a bit like I'm cheating.

      • The biggest one they have might be cool. I think the dealer would be fine

        • We have some corn here also but I was out at the store trying to walk behind a shopping cart and wondering if I was going to make it back out of the store today. Just trying to get my leg stronger...

            Keep working at it Mr Miyagi. It gets better. I’m nursing a hurt foot from an oops a couple weeks ago but its fine to ride just hard to walk

            That's where I am at, my leg has not been straight for 7 months and I lost a lot of muscle mass. The hardest thing to do is putting the kickstand down at the end of the ride. It's easier to ride than to drive the standard transmission in my Ranger.I push a toolbox around at work and I think pushing a shopping cart will help me build up usable muscle. I am just thankful I can walk right now.

        • So I was on my way home from the cabin so I could work on and pick up my Jeep....

          I was literally riding and there it was, so I pulled off to get a pic. Got off my bike, looked behind me, and in pulls this farmer, probably wondering what the hell I was doing! Didn't even pull my helmet off, pulled out my phone, took the pic, and off I went. I'm sure the guy in the truck, now behind the tractor, was thinking, "Damned city folk!"

          As I got closer to home, off in the fields were some combines, actually harvesting wheat. Too far off for a good pic but it would have 'qualified'.

          Maybe later--

          Next challenge? Find a 50's style diner or burger joint. Extra points if you can set a burger on top of your seat!

          • Have we already done a 50's diner? If so, LMK and I'll come up with something else! I came up with that idea because we have a 50's burger joint that I roll past as I come into town.

              Hey, sounds like a good challenge! It's really hard to find something we haven't done Looking for a 50's diner!

            So what are you hoping to see? When I think of that I think of those old chrome like buildings that look like an oversized Airstream trailer. I know where one is in Fargo but that's 9 hrs away. Might be able to find an old Mom & Pop type joint but just figured I'd ask. Sounds like a good challenge though.

            Comment


            • That is what I think of also, but I think the closest one I have seen in the last 10 years is about 5 hours away.

              • I know this target has already been found, but I just wanted to get a couple up close pics for perspective for MikeyC

                  MikeyC yeah meeting them on the road is an adventure. They take up 2/3 of the average road. Some smaller back roads they barely fit.
