Grab! (Why doesn't the whole photo show? Click on it, and you should see the Griso on the right - - -)
Anyway, that's Spinnin' Wheel. Used to have a HUGE Guzzi sign on the outside wall around the corner of the building, which fronts a (relatively, this is out in the countryside) road. Don't know why it's not there anymore. Maybe I should give them a call to hear if it's for sale - - - -
Owned by a good mechanic, but I don't know what "modern stuff" he can do. They don't sell any new bikes.
I had the roadster there once for winter storage and service work, plus he had the left cylinder welded after it started leaking oil at the inner plug. It's been good ever since.





New tag!
A shooting range!

New tag is a bar or a church. Depending on how you’re doing that day. :)

Looks like we criss crossed tags.  :)
I'm betting there's a bar or a church somewhere out there in Indiana.
We've got 1 bar and two churches in town.  The faulty ratio is only because the other 2 bars closed due to the owners dying.

Back in the 50s and before, this was the local "Holy Roller" church. (Rolling on the floor, speaking in tongues..)  it's a craft store, now.

Got this tag yesterday.. that's ok isn't it?
Tag:
Chain saw art.

This commemorates a very early township school that is now a house on this location.

Grab: Like Chuck, the best I could do for a waterfall. Old mill pond along Dam #5 Road, just west of Williamsport, MD.






New Tag: Freight train or just a locomotive - moving or stationary.
A CSX Intermodal passes the old feed mill on Dam #5 Road.




Two locomotives.  :wink: The Potomac Eagle tourist train preparing to depart the station at Romney, WV.

Grab:
Dahlgren Chapel just east of Boonsboro, MD.



Better view of the marker.




New Tag:
Something named after George Washington. This is at Washington Monument State Park, near Boonsboro, MD. Somehow I forgot to park the bike at the sign for a photo. Doh! But you can see the reflection of it in the left side of this photo.  :wink:


 

The actual monument is up a hiking trail. Great views from the top once you get there.

It was a bit nippy at times, but only 70 miles at low speeds, so not too bad. Big red fairing helps a lot.

I'm out of this one as George didn't get anywhere near my location. If I was in NY there is an ex-tavern in the north west corner of NJ where George had a drink and a meal when the British were chasing him around during the war.

Washington County FLorida.  :)

https://washingtonfl.com/

Honestly, it’s not worth the time to ride over there.

“Vernon, the geographical center of the county, is named for George Washington's Virginia home, Mt. Vernon. The pioneer town was also the site of a major Indian settlement.“

Veron was known as Nub City because someone discovered they could claim disability payments if they lost a finger. Then they found out they could get a bigger paycheck by cutting off an arm,leg,etc.


Film maker Errol Morris tried to make a documentary about Vernon and their pastime.

“After reading an article about the citizens of Vernon, Florida's propensity for collecting insurance money after losing limbs in accidents, Errol Morris, with financial help from filmmaker Werner Herzog, spent most of a year living in the town. During this time, he tried to interview the residents about these accidents and was met with hostility, even receiving a death threat.

In 1980, following the release of his first film Gates of Heaven, Morris secured funding from WNET and ZDF and returned to Vernon with the intention to make the "Nub City" documentary. After receiving further threats from the residents, including an incident in which someone tried to hit his cinematographer with a truck, Morris decided to move forward with the documentary without the "Nub City" angle; electing instead to produce a documentary about the eccentricities of the town.”

Moving on from that chop-chop theme it’s a rather funny documentary. It’s probably on the usual streaming sources.
