    image.jpeg Outside the base in Halifax, Nova Scotia , I parked next to a very annoyed Ktm owner.... Who actually moved his bike after I captured the photo.... Too funny.

    I talked with the owner of that half-track a few years ago. I believe he was the mayor.

    If what I'm reading is correct, there are now more tanks above sea level to take pictures next to, albeit in Murmansk:

    Jul 23, 2014 - An exceptionally unspoiled M4 Sherman tank, the battle tank the Allies primarily used during the Second World War, was salvaged from an area in the Arctic Ocean’s Barents Sea near the Russian city of Murmansk Wednesday, July 23.

    The well-preserved relic of the M4 Sherman tank was extracted from another wreckage – a US cargo ship sunk during the dying days of the Second World War by a German submarine.

    The US-made M4 Sherman tank was aboard the SS Thomas Donaldson. The latter was then part of the Arctic convoy JW-65. However, the said ship was torpedoed near the shores of the small Russian island of Kildin by U-boat U968 on the 20th of March, 1945. -- https://www.warhistoryonline.com/war-articles/double-decker-bus-used-wwi-transport.html

    Azimuth markings on the turret to enable this Cromwell to be used as fire support from ship's deck. Just one of the fantastic modifications thought up for tank use on and around D-Day.

    I was just there a couple weeks ago. Not my bike, but one Kawasaki of Germany graciously loaned me for my 3 week tour.
