I'm not normally a huge fan of gas stations, but I'll bite...

We stopped at this nice little gas station in Ontario this summer. Here is the bike and the gas (i mean petrol) station...


And here is a piece of heavy equipment airing up the Cavalier...




Sorry to mess up your thread.

Shortly after stopping at the Sanders Cafe (the original Kentucky Friend Chicken), where we saw some of the heaviest equipment still in use today ) we stopped for gas along I-75.

I was convinced this little lady had been following our aroma all along



I decided to follow suit (NoMystery this is for your post) and buy out their stock of bubble tape...



and yes, that's all of it. In my mouth. At once

No plates - no gas - unofficial gas station with drunk attendants - too friendly!

It's in Morocco - I came across it as i was just aimlessly riding along.

It was built specifically for a film - "The Hills Have Eyes".

Then had just been left, it's now abandoned. Very strange sight to come across unexpectedly, especially the "cold beer" sign. Morocco is a "dry" muslim country - no alcohol.

Ever done this?


My bike in Citta di Castillo, Italy after I pumped diesel into it. Should have studied Italian! After about $300, a night in a hotel room and 5 hours with mechanico, my forgiving wife and I were back on the road to Rome.
