    • It was just lying along the highway. I have to assume its owner is through with it!

      • I hope the same! If that was one crash, it must have been a 6 on the Richter scale!

  4. Oh, my! That’s not a bad analogue for my summer, as a matter of fact – but at least there’s no skeleton next to the bike!

    • Yes, hopefully the rider survived. (I didn’t see a headstone near there either.)

  7. When I was a kid my brother would have dragged that old bike home and asked me to help him fix it up. there wouldn’t be many parts we could use from that one though.

    • Yep, I think the only thing that could be salvaged from this one would be a memory.
