Motorcycle Graveyard

I was searchin the web one day and found these pics on flicker that were posted by a young photographer. You can find more of his photos here...  http://www.flickr.com/photos/cseward/with/4491011267/

I would love to go there some day and see the graveyard in person. It's just as if one day, the human beings just up and left, kinda like the rapture in end times.

Motorcycle Graveyard 2

These pictures are all taken in an abandoned scrapyard / motorcycle graveyard in Lockport, NY. Apparently the building was condemned, but the inventory was never sold off. If i ever need parts for antique motorcycles, I now know where to go.

This was one of the less stable buildings we explored. In various places the weight of the motorcycles had broken through the floor.

Hunnert Car Pile Up 2010

Decatur Ill. was the location for the 2010 Hunnert Car Pile Up. L and I set out at 8:30 am on 10-8 to meet up at the Friends Creek Camp Ground with about 10-15 other people from TCU and HC web sites. We was the first to arrive so we had our choice of camp spots (Yep you know we had to pick the best one). Soon after, others started motoring in. Some on m/c's and some trailered in.
We kinda partied at the camp ground friday night after going into Clinton Ill. to the preparty in the square. On saturday, we headed out to the car and bike show. Rods and bikes from all eras' were in attendance.
Afterwards we went to a "private party" in the evening and returned back at the campground for some "adult" beverages. Us older people hit the hay about 1:00 am while the younger crew stayed up till the wee hours of the morning partying.
On Sunday morning, we made the dreaded 6 1/2 hr ride home.
L and I had a great time. Met some really nice (and crazy) people who have a sincere love for riding motorcycles, chattin with people and making friends. There's just nothing like the brotherhood of motorcyclist. I would compare them to our fighting men and women of the US military. Dedicated, loyal, and honest!
