Travel Photo of the Day (July 22)

If I sat on a motorcycle like this I would topple over and end up with the bike on top of me. Photo taken in Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia.

    I love the holes in his socks – has he got a Jack Russell Terrier that pulls his socks off when he gets home I wonder…! That is some serious balancing act though.

  3. I would join you down under!

  4. What’s this? The Hell’s Angels Position…?

  5. one year i wanted to go to Rolling Thunder in DC on Memorial Day. My brother in law has a motorcycle and while I’m not a big fan of them, the ride downtown through Rock Creek Park was nice. There were over 250,000 vets on motorcycles in the parade that day. It is a tremendously moving experience. It is a parade they throw for themselves started by the veterans of the Vietnam war. Not many spectators line the route. I am a hate the war but take care of the warriors kind of person so i wanted to go to pay my respects since we don’t seem to care for them very well. I spent a lot of time weeping and a lot of time cheering. it is one of those things i think everyone should see once. but back to the motorcycle. something happened to my brother in law watching all those motorcycles. the normally mild mannered man, became a lunatic and the ride back to my sisters house was the most terrifying 20 minutes of my life. i didn’t say anything but whenever i go up to visit and he looks like he’s about to ask me if i’d like to go for a ride, i go clean something.

      I’m not a fan of war either, but I’m with you, we need to support our soldiers and veterans. The state of healthcare for vets is atrocious. I would love to see this parade and I would be clapping my hands like crazy, cheering them on.

      As for the motorbike, that sounds terrifying. A friend of mine has one and I went for a ride. The first time it was fun. The second time she realized I was scared so she tried to frighten me even more. It worked. I will never ride one again. Gives me chills to think about it. I’m with you, I’d rather clean than go. And I hate cleaning.

    He is certainly agile and well-balanced!

  8. Fergiemoto says:

    That looks quite awkward. I would lose my balance on the bike too!

  9. bocafrau says:

    Wow. Wonder how he is keeping balance?

  10. dadirri7 says:

    he looks so comfortable!

  11. If that was me, the photo would be of me under the motor bike!

  12. adinparadise says:

    Goodness me! I’d never get myself untangled again. 🙂

  13. If I sat on a bike like that I would not be able to straighten my legs out and walk!

  14. That fellow seems to have had lots of yoga practice!
