Had to start this ever popular thread on the new board. 

I saw this when Robin and I were riding weekend before last but didn't get a picture of it.  It's on Hwy 271 between Pittsburg, Tx and Gilmer, TX.  I went over in that part of the state today so I swung by to get a picture of it.  A creative use for an old tractor.

I missed the fountain the first time by, glad I got a second chance with your post.

Here I was having fun with the camera.

Aha, I thought for a while it was the smallest church I'd ever seen and a fine white peak on a rusty roof, very creative.

I took this Sunday.  Kind of wish now that I'd had one of the guys ride across the bridge for me to take the pic.

Jake, Rollie, and Harold in the picture, me behind the camera. A Helix found kinship amongst a C14, a VStar 1300, and an FJR.

We would have but FJR Harold can never sit for too long. In fact he took an early leave from us with the excuse of "needing to be closer to the hospital" (anesthesiologist-on call in a few hours) but I think he just wanted to get back to warp speed and Jake and his Helix were flying sub sonic.

Love the lake pictures!
Spotted this jewel on the Cherohala Skyway. The owner is 72 years old, bought it new, so he has had it more than half his life.

Just found a few friends tagging a long.  That is Sco right behind.  Also found that objects in mirror were losing ;)

Was 110 miles of solid twisties!  Today was a perfect day of riding, everything was moving so smoothly.

Robin and I did a little 428 mile ride yesterday and I managed to find yet another variation on the classic buttermilk pie.  This one was a buttermilk coconut pie at the Sunshine Cafe in Wolf City, Tx.

Those roads look picture perfect Maggie.  So smooth and twisty and the weather looks drop dead beautiful.  That's quite the crew trying to keep up with you.
