STs in front of BIG things.....
« on: September 15, 2011, 09:26:28 AM »
It works like this...

Get a pic of your bike in front of an iconic 'BIG' tourist attraction (or thing) and post it here.

Name the town you snapped it in and just REPLY to this post - don't start a new topic.


I'll kick it off....

The Big Pineapple - Nambour.



She's a little old and tired now and not used as a tourist attraction any more. UPDATE: The Big Pineapple has now been restored and back in business.

This was the most photographed tourist icon in Queensland for many years (along with Sea World on the GC).

On my way out to Cracow earlier this year on old Bluey.  I'll let you work out the town's name.

Love citrus fruit!!   ;D

For the modern man who lives in the city, riding a bike might be one of the only ways to escape the humdrum monotony. To take off and ride. To be both at one with nature and one with the bike. To feel masculine. Adam Piggott

Diesel- that's a Regular sized dragline bucket.  Isn't this thread for BIG versions.
So where's the BIG version of a regular dragline? ;D

Anyhoo, does that pic mean you're back from your IB1600 already?

You make a very good point Bill - I should have named it a BIG piece of steel or iron.

- Perhaps the BIG part of that was the effort went to to get the pic!      :P

And yes - back safe n sound (and within the certification constraints)

Congratulations and well done!!  I figured you'd taken time off your burning butt to grab the shot.

Been there. That's in Eucla! Both times we have driven across in a commuter bus. Top cruising, most economical 90kph towing a trailer.

Judging by the Emoticon selected, that should be out near Moonie, no?   :fp

A Big Whale, will let all know the location soon, still sorting out things, I got back home this morning..


OMG...I was going to post when you had that picture of you stand next to your ST.

You standing behind you bike doesn't equate to a "big thing"
I thought you were calling yourself a Big Whale, but then you changed the photo, now it makes more sense

That's what happens when one moves a pic from one place to another  :fp Just as well I spotted it then...I haven't been called a whale for a while now  :grin

Cheers

Yes - or even "Southern right humpback sperm Kev".

Now THAT would have taken some embroidery!

Sorry - I'll     :spank   myself.

Well how about two ST Owners in front of something big? Giant Rocking Chair just west of Cuba on Route 66. Peter is riding a Harley (with his wife) and I am on a Victory, thought it best not to put photos of those on this site. Also how about a first, an OzStoc patch in America. 13 hire bikes altogether, 12 Harleys and one Victory.
