Apparently northern Illinois is out of the hunt until spring. We got a foot of snow by Monday morning, 11/26/18.

How about a picture of a Goldwing sitting in a garage next to a snow blower? Any bounty for that?? :)

I thought; "your snow blower looks as well-worn and often used as mine does" - and then I looked to see where you are: Erie, PA.

Yup. We get pretty good snow here, but NOTHING like you guys get. I've driven through Erie in blizzards before. I was there a week after last year's snowmageddon, and the amount of snow still everywhere was just insane.

Photos from "Da Yoopers" Tourist Trap in Ishpeming, Michigan.. The tourist trap is run by one of the members of a musical comedy/parody group called "Da Yoopers".

For those that don't know, Yoopers is what people from Michigan's Upper Peninsula (the U.P., or 'Da Yoop') call themselves..... It's a culture unto itself!

Nice pictures, at least now I know what a snowblower looks like, for I've not seen one in my life; I'm too far from snow. :lol:

Oh, well I put that out there as a goof, but OK here goes. It's still pretty crappy for riding here but how about a pic of a wing with a road sign warning of "snow, ice, slippery roads, etc." Some type of winter condition...

Please be safe and Have Fun!!

Looks like the winter road conditions didn't get picked up by anybody. Since we are now into some better riding conditions, should there be a new tag?

I like that one. A pic of your bike and your co-pilot. First one to post gets this game started again. Thank you to everyone who’s taken part. Can’t wait to see more pics.

Enjoy the Ride

Okay - like this??






So...new tag...





"City Hall" Note that the building clearly shows what it is. Your photo needs to prove it's a city hall building.

Well, lets see if we can get this game rolling again.
I got this building in city of Tigre, Buenos Aires, it's the administration office of the city, you may read in the top part of it the legend "MVNICIPALIDAD", which is written in an old times fashion, resembling roman typing.
If accepted, I would like to see your bike and a boat with at least two masts.
Good luck.

From what I found, that inscription translates to "Department of Health" in Buenos Aires .

Looks a lot like a town hall to me.

Accepted.

Argentina's official language is Spanish and the word on the building is a Romanized spelling of the Spanish word municipalidad - municipality.

Thank you for accepting the input.

You're totally correct, thas the way we call it here.

Translators not always gives the right answer.

This by no means is an argument starting; just a little more info from Wikipedia.org:

"The term is derived from French municipalité and Latin municipalis.[2] The English word municipality derives from the Latin social contract municipium (derived from a word meaning "duty holders"), referring to the Latin communities that supplied Rome with troops in exchange for their own incorporation into the Roman state (granting Roman citizenship to the inhabitants) while permitting the communities to retain their own local governments (a limited autonomy).

"...like to see your bike and a boat with at least two masts."

I live in a desert, and nothing within 500+ km of me that would fit that.

I'm sure there are some riders here much closer to water that could grab this next tag. :D

Well that could be a Good scuse to take a ride to the wáter... :lol: :lol:

You're right, the purpose of this game is to suit most riders, and their surroundings.

Please let me change the mark to:

Your bike and a tall TV, phone or Radar antena.

Good luck.
