I thought this motorcycle was pretty, so I stopped to get a shot, and then figured I’d get a bit of “historic downtown Stayton” in the photo, too. I admit I was a bit excited at getting an actual person in the photo — there isn’t much foot traffic ’round these parts. Or traffic in general. This was taken last Thursday, at about 4:50pm. Party town, yo.
I’ve decided to change things up around here. So starting today, this daily photo blog will feature a photo of a motorcycle every single day. I don’t encounter that many motorcycles, though, so I might have to recycle photos here and there. Don’t be surprised if I run today’s photo for the next week or two, since I don’t have any other motorcycle photos ready. Maybe I’ll dig out some old ones. Oh! Or I could draw some. Yeah, that would be swell.
Wait, what’s that? It’s April Fool’s Day? Oh, I see. I guess that means no motorcycle blog, then. Bummer. It’s probably for the best, though, since I don’t know anything about motorcycles, anyway. Fine, it’s back to whatever it is we do around here. See ya tomorrow.
We have a new guest photographer today! Katie Staley brings us this beautiful look back at last summer, which is especially nice right since the weather has been so wet around here. Her description:
This was taken in the summer while visiting Stayton Pioneer Cemetery (also known as Campbell-Grier Cemetery). My grandparents and other family are buried there. I love the calm rolling hills.
Thanks so much, Katie! And what a gorgeous motorcycle.
These two Harleys were sitting together in a parking lot on 1st Ave. the other day. So danged pretty.
In other news, the annular eclipse is today. I’m not sure if I will be able to see it, since it very well might be overcast. If I can, I will get pictures, but if you are in the Oregon are and can get a shot and want to share, I would love you forever and ever. Just send it to me at sitespecialwebcom, with your name (as you’d like for it to show on here) and a brief description (including location). Thanks!
These Yamaha motorcycles were parked across the street from the Post Office on 2nd Ave. the other day. I only had a second to take a picture, so it’s not the greatest photo in the world.
My own little Yamaha scooter hopes to one day grow up and be a big motorcycle like these here. It forgets its owner wouldn’t be able to reach the ground on one of these things.
I had an Incredible Hunk Big Wheel when I was a kid. It was cool… until I wore out one part of the plastic wheel because I skidded to a stop too many times.
But this lovely hunk of machinery I spotted in the Bi-Mart parking lot a few days ago is so much better, especially since it has actual brakes. The back seat has arm rests and speakers on either side. You can’t see it in the photo, but there’s a small bear dressed like a biker on the other side. That’s traveling in style. I want one.
