    That old Coke trailer had been wrecked and been around forever(i like old landmarks like that). This one was so new that when i rode by it still smelled brand new so i had to stop. :{)

    I wonder, did the chain break before the bike was put on display or after? Maybe someone needed the master link!

    Do you know how far off of the New Mexico BDR that is?
    Also on Google maps it is listed as "closed", how do you close a roadside memorial?

    I'll have to look at NM BDR to see how far - and yeah I'm not sure how you close a roadside attraction
