Love the covered bridges. Nice XR1000, remeber seeing Alan Cathcart racing one in the early 80s

Thanks for all the nice comments from those who are enjoying this thread...



I was out riding again today...

I happened upon the Shoshonean Rod and Gun Club and their new sculpture:




I don't know who the chainsaw artist was for this particular example, but it turned out magnificent.


More pics in the link below... Once there, select 'Miscellaneous Places - 2019'...

I was riding this early November day with the temps in the mid-50's. The skies were overcast and it was very breezy. Without the sunshine the wind chill was even colder.

I came upon this colonial soldier and his Quaker Gun.




The name comes from the fact that Quakers were opposed to violence and war. Such wooden cannons, while not functional, provided a deceptive appearance from a distance and were effective at deterring the enemy.

George Washington was said to have used one in South Carolina during the Revolutionary War to force the surrender of some British Loyalists. Later, they were used by both Union and Confederate forces to inflate the apparent strength of fortifications.

My Gr-Gr-Grandfather encountered Confederate Quaker Guns at the siege of Petersburg in Virginia.


This soldier actually replaces a similar one that was standing on the other side of the roadway. It deteriorated over the years and finally was damaged in an auto accident at the intersection. The owner decided to not only replace the soldier, but to give him some artillery against those dang new horseless carriages!

I was out riding on this overcast November day. The temperature was in the low-50's but the wind was very still. I rode for about 50 miles. My hands were cold by the time I got back but I still had that wide smile that comes from getting KooL Therapy...

Riding on Veteran's Day - It seemed appropriate to visit Gettysburg.

I visited Evergreen Cemetery which is adjacent to, and pre-dates, the National Cemetery.

Vehicles are allowed here (unlike the National Cemetery) and I find it sobering to ride among the headstones, both new and old.

In the background of this picture of grave stones in the Evergreen Cemetery is the Soldiers National Monument which is located past the fence in the National Cemetery.





More pictures and info are at My Motorcycle Chronicles - 'Miscellaneous Places - 2019'...
