A fantastic thread more please!
People tend to mix up a windTURBINE with a windmill. This is a windmill, De Vlijt in Diever village, Drenthe Province, The Netherlands during the 33 national heritage days this weekend. And my 35yrs young Honda RD01 XLV750R.
Fort Ross on the Northern Calif. coast.
I built this windmill on our farm 2 years ago. The tower came from Denver, CO and the rest from San Angelo, TX. The instructions pretty much were just a photo of a windmill. It took a lot of cussing, head scratching and taking pieces apart to build it. Always wanted a windmill and it finally happened. We admire it every morning from the front porch while having coffee.
Old Pea Soup Anderson’s windmill. This is the first time it’s been in operation in years
Today, taking Mighty White out for a spin. This is actually a watermill, used for watermanagement (in this specific case: irrigation)
Somewhere in Arizona. Taken on the fly.
On the Geronimo Trail just east of Douglas Arizona
One ready to go up near Creston Iowa.
I ran across this one Saturday in northeastern Oklahoma.
Took me a minute to spot the windmill :)
Now here's a different one.
About 5 weeks ago in the Texas hillcountry----it was at an entrance to a ranch.
The SAMPSON windmills have always intriqued me------as my name is Sampson and these were made in Illinois not far from me. To this day there are a few of these on display there in Freeport, Illinois.
I've never seen any in Illinois---------but have ran across 3 in Arizona over the years.
This one I found earlier this year just North of Patagonia, AZ on the Great Western Trail.
One I found just barely North of Lochiel AZ is sadly replaced by an electric pump----------how embarrassing for the old windmill that did it's job for so many years.
This was just a couple miles from the SAMSON windmill---------looked to me to be a working old fashioned windmill on top of a cell tower-----------the crazy stuff you find on the road less traveled.
Just a cheap knockoff of a real SAMSON windmill
North of the border town of Lochiel AZ...............it is no longer there.
The Arizona BDR goes right past this.
The last time I saw it was in 2008---when I took this picture.
Hope that you still own your CBX. I enjoyed the identical machine for nearly a 100,000 KM's. It was great for sport touring.
