Who would have thought the 2006 World Snooker Championships were so...um...thrilling that this gentlemen was considered by some to be the "highlight of the entire two weeks."

Well some things are large and then some things are ex-large.

This devil of a run is just that ex-large, it's a five-day run down to the south of the boarder - a fiesta on motorcycles if you will. A chance to ride places and do things that simply can't be done at a conventional American motorcycle rally. For dozens of dedicated men and women this is an annual gathering. For some, it's a rite of passage.


And sadly this year was the third and finally one.

then you need to reread the tag,

some things are large and some things are extra large.

well I would but pretty much all I see is a b/w picture of a women with short cropped hair and a hat.

That I have idea who the * * * * is.

If you go back and look at some of the older tags you'll see that folks gave some hint to who or what it is.

You don't have to gave it all way, like the large, extra large.

But a little more then "enjoy" would be helpful.


peace

I don't know if the owner of this house ever owned a scooter. Perhaps in the 1960s?

Along the same lines, different.... VERY different.

Hint: The Doomtown Rally is only a few towns away, and actually wondered what it would be like to ride out there.

I did have to crop this down b/c I forgot about the sign outside. Laughing emoticon Also, this place just did some remodeling; doesn't look like this anymore.

Well thanks to Corinthian, I was reminded that today September 24th is a National holiday.

You're going to need to know a couple of things to find this one: The make of the bike, the activity this guy was most likely involved in, and the fact that they got the year wrong and pegged it at 1950. It was probably more like 1959. Of course if you're a real motorcycle afficionado and can fully identify the model of bike - or the name of the rider - you should be able to find it on either piece of information alone.

He's a really great guy, by the way. Just got out of intensive care recently after breaking his leg, arm, and pelvis in an accident on a ride in which I participated. (No, he wasn't riding a scooter, and yes, I was.) But that info probably won't help you find him. Read about him when you do.

Apologies in advance if you can't find the image at the same size/resolution.

Frank Scurria raced Ducatis in the 50s and 60s.

He was riding a vintage Ducati on July 16 in the 4th leg of Motogiro America when he collided with a SUV near Paso Robles, CA.

I could only find a tiny version of the picture and blew it up to 200%.

So nickaltenbernd, where is your scooter image on the Nina Totenburg tag?

And did you mean the photo of Judge Blackmun (and I'm not talking out of school here since his picture was on the same page as Nina's) to be the next tag? If so, it should have a scooter image as well.

I'm not sure if you were just providing context for the Nina image, but in any case the game is a bit stalled now as we try to figure out your intentions. Razz emoticon

In the Nina Totenberg pic my scoot is just over her right shoulder. However I forgot to insert it in the Blackmun photo. Sorry.
