    :lol3 Ok. Wasn't sure if those were the bikes--and hack. Pretty cool picture!


    Oh, finally saw the Honda AT. Went to Castle Powersports. Showed the sales person the t-shirt picture taken in Normandy. She was impressed with the whole story that began last year at Bryce Canyon. She flagged down another person who may have been the sales or store manager to hear the story and see the picture. Good small-world story for sure.

    Thanks!

    Yeah, I still think it's a cool story: Bryce Canyon till now. Still enjoy it very much to stay in touch.

    How was the Honda AT in reality? You liked it?

    The old fort in Hoek van Holland, The Netherlands. Fort is from the 1880's, built partially underground, to defend the entrance of the harbor of Rotterdam:

    This is such a niche topic and I find it funny how many people have taken pictures of their bike near a cannon. Cool stuff regardless guys :)

    See the playground behind the cannon? That's kind of retarded.

    This cannon was used by Americans to kill other Americans. That's also kind of retarded.

    I don't even know why I took this photo since I think killing people as a solution to a problem is a bigger problem.
