    The BMW R1100RS I bought just before I retired ... scan of an old film photograph.

    The wall art was near the old steelworks between Rotherham and Sheffield ... sadly the wall art is no more :(

    During my recent motorcycle trip up to the Grand Canyon I spent a day in Williams, Arizona which is the "gateway" to the Grand Canyon. I decided to do another of my one iron horse meets another photo's. On this day it was clear and bright which masked the morning 32 degree temps when this image was shot. Hence the reason I am wearing three shirts and a leather vest under my non winter weight motorcycle jacket which makes me look more bulky than usual but was necessary to battle the wind chill factor at speeds of 70-80mph on the freeway at an elevation of 7000ft. About two hours later and I would be back in the "Valley of the Sun" at elevation 1250 riding in 85 degree temperatures.

    Originally built by the American Locomotive Company (ALCO) for the Northern Pacific railroad, this Mikado class (2-8-2) steam locomotive, is now decommissioned and relegated to display at the Grand Canyon railroad station in Williams. In the past when locomotives were deactivated the shops would torch through the main rods leading from the steam cylinders to the drivers thereby cutting them in half and making them unusable. Today such items are valuable so when a locomotive is taken out of service usually because it will no longer pass the boiler inspection and is too far gone to rebuild, the side rods are removed. On this locomotive the builders plate, see rectangular depression on side of grey smoke box area below smoke stack, has also been removed.

    The single most ear drum shatteringly loud motorcycle I have ever heard.
    Ridden by Kim Newcombe who finished second posthumously in the 1973 World Championship and would have been the first post WWII non four stroke champion had he not been killed at Silverstone.

    In some of your posts here I am beginning to see a thread. It seems that motorcycle racers photographed by you die from less than natural causes. :confused:

    They don't build rear ends like this any more.
