Signs, signs, everywhere a sign.

OK, so we've all seen them. Those odd, amusing, strange, or downright stupid signs along the road. Some just make you turn around and take a picture.

Here are a few to get us started.

This one is a bit un-nerving.


And a few miles down the road.


And yes, even a Vegas in Victory


There has to be some more out there.
So let's see them

How often do they put a new bike out at the sign?

Yep, that's the idea.
I have a bunch of them from wanderings both in the Jeep and on the cycle.

OK, I understand brand loyalty, but this is a bit much..

Every time I see the sign: Stop Ahead...I think Why, is it rolling away? Kind of reminds me of that.

OK, so this one isn't a sign. It is a bumper sticker I saw on a BMW scooter.


And this one is on the south shore of Lake Superior near Cornucopia, WI.
Seems pretty obvious

This sign is by a rest area at Kimball, Nebraska. Probably oughta have "Stop-Look-Listen" added to it.

We don't need that sign in Texas. It's a given. You're actually luck if it makes a sound. Copperheads and Moccasins don't and we got plenty of all. You learn to watch ALL the time. Me....I carry snake shot all summer.

The picture is at a rest stop on I-80, so probably a good warning for people who aren't from snake country. Might make mama think twice before shooing the kids out to run off steam.

Not many snakes in my end of the state so I'm just not thinking about them.

There is a similar sign at a rest stop near Chamberlain, SD. Took this pick in 2009 when I road out to the Black Hills.
