    unfortunately I wasn't made aware of this phenomena before I was somewhere between Katherin and Broome..... damn shame - I rode the whole gulf from east to west, would've been a freakin awsome sight :cry

    Look like the one GS put up.

    Took this during Bike Week 2 years ago. I think it's from heat going up into cooler air? Just a guess cause you could see it puckering.

    Awsome as the "tube" clouds are I can't take credit for the pictures. As I mentioned I was told about these whilst traveling and just had to spread the word - the pics are just some I found online.

    It looks light in the pic, but it was very dark and stormy moments after this started to roll in.

    I wasn't on my bike, and I'm glad I wasn't... because this progression of pics took about 30 minutes to happen.

    I love living in PA... these were taken in November. The next week it was probably cold and snowing.

    From my AK ride up a month ago.



    A nice scene
    [​IMG]

    and the bad...(still pretty though) The worst of it I have no pics for. I was to busy keeping the bike upright. We missed most of this storm as this is behind us. and the pic doesn't do it justice. Its a heavy rain coming our way.. We got into a bad one the next day though. Probably the worst we had to ride in.

    Iowa last summer. As a New Englander, I'm not used to seeing weather I'll be riding through in an hour or two.
