    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. FB_IMG_1568493255893.jpg

    E02880B6-72A3-4DF5-A6E9-A62E334FB88B.jpeg 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.

    Today, taking Mighty White out for a spin. This is actually a watermill, used for watermanagement (in this specific case: irrigation) 20191024_141352.jpg

    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:lol3

    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.
