OK so here's a late-entry, and I have to point out up front that I did not take this picture (but my helmet and gloves are in it), and it was not taken during this past weekend, or even this year. But it was one of those weird serendipities- the Group Dynamic assignment-thread was one of the last I read the last time I was here, and shortly after that I saw this photo that a friend took a while back being used as a front-page photo for a YahooGroup that friend just started. As soon as I saw the picture I knew it was a group dynamic for sure- so with the photographer's blessing, here it is:
This was taken at a former Esso station in Mena Arkansas just off the end of the Talimena Scenic Drive. I was with a bunch of airhead-riding friends from all over the country, and we had stopped to look through the windows at the old gas station, which is preserved from another era and now (along with a former Studebaker showroom around the corner) serves as a small museum of mostly cars, a few bikes, and various bits of American-road-memorabilia.
The Photographer is my friend Joan Marie from Seattle.
