This image needs to be transferred over to the discussion about pipe laws.
Can any of you high tech dudes handle that one?
Don't winterize; Rounderize!
I have seen that on a few other boards.
Is it real or Photoshop.
That looks like a picture taken by a couple of WI BMW Club members. See www.wiscbmwclub.com.
Just two short weeks until the HD 100th - please send lots of positive thoughts towards Milwaukee. It's hard enough being a Beemer rider here but with 20,000 of them in town I have a feeling that it is going to a be a VERY long weekend indeed.
Here in Reno, NV on Sept 24 - 28 we will have
Street Vibrations. Now that is only about 4,000+ but it still is annoying. Last year the BMW truck was downtown.
My thoughts will be with you during your time of sorrow.
Hey, I get another STAFF tshirt to add to the Iron Butt Rally staff tshirt I got last weekend!

The event 100 years in the making: Montana Harley-Davidson‘«÷s Ride Home Party. It is our goal to make this event as safe and entertaining as possible, as we want to leave a lasting impression on thousands of people making their first trip to Missoula.
I've been told to expect 20,000. Well, the stage 1 air quality and the ash falling from the sky ought to leave a lasting impression. The view from my house is down to Fort Missoula. Well, usually...
I'd like a couple of angles & a location to believe it's real. Otherwise, somebody can REALLY fly Photoshop, killer work; font angle seems to match board edges etc.
Yeh it's the real thing I took the pix that is on the Wisconsin BMW Club web site. My wife spotted it first from the seat of her R1100R and I took our camera back after teaching a BRC at Milw Area Tech College. I best I can do for location is tell you that it is on the east side of I-94 about a half mile south of 7 mile road in Racine county Wisconsin. I hate to get too specific as it may become the target of the loud pipe group.
100 Years and they still leak oil!
I have one.....!
Guess thats why I ride a BMW as well !

Thanks, Jim for getting location back to me so soon. I have a friend in Milwaukee (rides a K75) who's good with a camera. I GOTTA get him to score good 35MM shots before much longer! The BIG ride-in is THIS weekend! I think there may be a line to burn the billboard, given the 1%ers out there.
TNX again, <<<)))
It's pretty wild here in Milwaukee folks - street fests, snarled traffic, and lots of quality people-watching. Why, I even saw one rider wearing a high-vis vest....crazy! I thought you might enjoy some pictures so that you can see what you're missing.
I'm going to resist the urge to put captions....
