    Mart C. (Placerville, CA) sent this to me to post. A great pic of a great sign in front of a great cemetery in Mobile, AL. I'd forgotten about those above ground cemeteries....

    My Favorite Sign (NOT)

    Truth be told I was waiting in line for a shot at a track ride at the beautiful Grattan Raceway when Julie Claire captured this moment.
    It depicts the epic struggle of good over evil and/or man and bike vs very low speed limits and whatnot.

    OK, this isn't really a "road" sign, but I sure got a kick out of it. Somewhere in South Dakota, I think.

    Some bikes. Some with motors, some without.

    Is that a brick and an oilhead side by side?

    Quick seperate them before they mate!

    RT 261 in Utah. It's not very long but a good climb.

    WideBMW, what is that the view from the top of? It reminds me of the view from Capulin, but some details are not quite right to be that...

    You got a R100R, great I have a 92. I just turned 180,000 miles on it. The road is the one on the first pic. UT 261 going North from Mexican Hat, UT. About 5 miles of dirt.
    Going up, my wife did not like my "one hand for the bike and one hand for the camera. Have fun on your new bike. John

    Get some map software, MapQuest for instance. Go to the Four Corners area (UT,CO,NM,AZ). Center on Mexican Hat, UT. Zoom in a bit. 261 goes north off of US-163. In MapQuest, you can see a little "blob" at the end of the first stretch of 261 heading NNW off of 163. Center on that blob and zoom in. When you zoom in enough, you'll see Valley of the Gods Road. That is the road that you can see from the top. Mokee Dugway, likely the place where the photos were shot is at the "tip" of one of those switchback curves.
