I is for Iconic

Pridddddddy!

Abc


I know I could of had the easier obvious options, Isle of Man, island, Irish Sea but now I have the laptop back a chance to plunder( Viking style of course) the older images. One Harley Davidson being admired by locals and tourists on "Ramsey Day" ( yes we do have our own special day) when the TT Road Races take a a break. I am leaving this post tonight short and sweet, and just leave you to enjoy the image. I know I do. Reminds me soon the motorbikes are back, and so will some of you who will see this image tonight. I did wonder who owned it. I mean take a look at that number plate. Could this belong to an American tourist who liked certain TV show from the '70s or one of our more hazardous Ramsey residents? Leave you to ponder that one.

Wow! What a bike indeed! I would love to be able to take a little spin on that -- of course, someone else would have to drive! Great shot, fun post as always, Babooshka! Hope your week is going great! Enjoy!

That one looked very special - not your everyday MC. Absolutely a case for monochrome.

I'm afraid motorbikes don't do anything for me. No a classic English sports car is another matter.

One of our neighbours has a Harley Davidson and so has his wife! They really enjoy riding them. It's a beautiful machine!

Whoever owns it, it must be his pride and joy.

At last, something to outrun General Lee. Soon we too will be enjoying weather that brings out bikes like this.

Jay said...

My, that IS pretty! Love the curves!

Pob said...

Roll on the TT. Cracking shot.

Ah, one of a kind and perfect in monochrome, Baboosh!

Vroom!! Vroom!!!

Joy said...

Glittering prize indeed. I didn't notice the plate until you pointed it out, that certainly adds to the mystery.

Iconic for sure. I can feel the roar.

Way too cool for the Dukes of Hazzard. I think it was saying the hog is boss - great, the tops.

Ben said...
