    Found another one of the murals tonight.....looks very much like the work of the same artist as the previous ones ....

    Unfortunately I couldn't get the bike in front of it as it was in a locked industrial yard ...but this might help give it some scale ...

    Had to shove the camera through the bars to get a clear shot...

    One day a little boy ask to his father :

    "Daddy, who gives me the intelligence?"

    And the father say :

    " Your mother, cause i still have mine "

    ..and your comment is also much appreciated, - Thanks ...glad you enjoy the thread . :thumb


    On the subject of 'diversity'.... here is a bit more ..
    On Sunday we didn't get out for our usual ride as the weather was pants ..... however Glasgow was pretty much closed down for the national cycling roadrace championships. So Sarah and I hopped on our bikes and cycled round parts of the 14K course to check out the action. It was pretty impressive seeing these guys whizzing through the city streets.

    The men's race was 13 laps round the City ..a total of 114 miles..I was knackered just watching them ..Glasgow is built on a huge hill.

    Police escort in advance of the riders...

    Escort coming down West George Street ..... heading towards George Square (where they filmed scenes for 'World War Z').....

    Cool! - It was quite a spectacle wasn't it ...We started off watching them come through Kelvingrove Park..it was strange seeing all the police and support vehicles flying through the middle of the park. :wink:

    There was one point, down near Trongate where both sides of the course were only a couple of meters apart..great for viewing.

    Down on Argyle Street...

    In fact i tried to test if a "schwantz's replica" was a good idea on a old Gixxer, but not...

    So i prefer to have a unique model :evil:evil:rofl:rofl:rofl:rofl

    Well our mid week evening run up to Strathyre last night was a bit more 'eventful' than we would have liked.
