Mike, Mike, MIke... Thought for sure you'd get this one by now. VERY doable for you, but probably not where you're thinking.

FYI: the bike is down for the count. Would't turn over after I took the helicopter picture. Luckily I was on a slight grade and was able to bump start it. Starter is burning hot when touched. Doesn't go to the shop until after the 4th of July.

Sure, torment me with almost hints...I know I'm missing something obvious here... lol

Sorry your bike is down, that sucks.
A shame they stopped including the kick start along with the electric starter, my 78 has both.


Here's the last "almost" hint you'll get!

Your bike with a ferris wheel in the picture.

RogerC60 FOR THE WIN!!!! You're up


And just to rub it in a little bit 馃榾..... MIke, yes you can see the Dorney Park ferris wheel from Hamilton Blvd from the McDonalds or Speedway gas station at the intersection with 78. The "hint" was Knobels (nice ride there too if you take the right roads), and you can get REAL close to the wheel at Hershey Park.

State flower, hmmm, let's see if I can find one.

Your bike with sunflowers

Out in Kansas yours may be in bloom, but in Pennsylvania they are about two weeks past their prime. This was 9:15 this morning.

Mike, yes it is mine . . . new bike as of last Wednesday.

Mike made the quest, But I dont think a sign counts, but maybe he will forgive you for such a perrty bike...;)(y)

Blew up the picture so you can see the sunflowers turning brown and wilting but they are indeed sunflowers. These are 10 minutes from Mike's house if he wants to verify. If someone can come up with a bright yellow picture I'll concede. 馃尰:)

Those are indeed sunflowers, just a bit past their prime. What鈥檚 funny is 20 miles away in the hills of nw NJ they were blooming like crazy. Must be altitude difference.
You are up.
Oh and that鈥檚 a gorgeous bike!

Hey Mike! Yes, after I posted the picture I went out again. Up 519/94/206.... Passed two fields in NW NJ in full yellow bloom. Put the first 308 miles in the FJR today. Nighthawk still waiting on a starter - 3 months now - back-ordered.

Anyway, my ride today helped me pick the next challenge (after passing several coming back through PA):

you can get a rebuild kit for your starter from:






"Your bike by a Christmas Tree Farm"
The Nighthwk lives! This pleases me.

"Your bike by a Christmas Tree Farm"
Well, it "will" live....maybe. Not rebuild-able at all. Totally melted/destroyed. New one from Rick's Electronics keeps getting pushed back. Latest message was maybe this week. Fingers crossed.

My bike at a Christmas tree farm:

This place has only a small sign, and it's not near this area where the trees are growing. I dropped a pin on Google maps and took a screenshot:
Good enough for me Roger....you're up!

Next challenge: your bike with a lean-to. That's a small building stuck onto a larger free-standing building.
Roger - Does this meet your criteria for a lean-to? If so, are there any bonus points for a lean-to on a lean-to (the big lean-to has a little lean-to on the back of it)?

Tom, that is exactly what I had in mind and yeah, the lean-to on a lean-to is icing on the cake!

You're up.
Well OK then. Not sure if this is a tough one or easy (I have actually spotted several riding around while looking for good challenge subjects). How about a picture of one of those colored glass balls on a pedestal people have on their lawn or in their gardens. I believe they're called "gazing balls". So....here we go:

"Your bike with a gazing ball"

"NINJA" Lori - And you thought spotting a large red barn with a lean-to while negotiating the twisties was hard, try spotting one of these!馃構

If I go to the local trailer park, im sure ther are :ROFLMAO:


This house is not to far around the corner from me (one of them that gave me the idea). If you look close there's a gazing globe in front of the porch steps. Not too bad for a trailer park!

Ok. Just to be clear, were talking about these things right?

Your bike with a gazing ball.
Yup, that would be them! But then again, those don't appear to be in a trailer park...maybe they're not them....
