Sign on the Gold Butte Road, Nevada. Access point for Arizona Strip.




And the backside, intended to be seen after a long, long ride to nowhere.




Good sense of humor. Deserved the proper salute!

In Arizona the citizens repealed a law to permit them to be used. Good for them.

Some cities in the peoples republic of california have those dastardly devices. Simply a revenue gimmick, nothing else.
Here in Oz i havesee a few that have had a petrol soaked blanket thrown over them and ignited, but now the authourities have a second surveillance camera nearby, usually up high n a power pole, observing what happens with the speed camera....

This was the first time I saw a hand-carved and hand-painted wooden sign for a school. They sure don't make them like this any more.

Sorry - but I'm not sure who the teachers are in Manley Hot Springs. I live in Anchorage and rode out to Manley with Alcan Rider over Memorial Day Weekend. The hot springs are wonderful!
