A roadside attraction, alongside the snake farms, the stands selling Indian curios, the pecan log emporiums?



It would have to be a Rube Glide.

Let's see if they can keep that Harleyesque 27 inch seat height.

If things follow the usual course then soon we'll be seeing 4 similar giant motorcycles being built in Japan. Each will be touted as a "bold unique innovation".

As the Japanese say, they'll be "Same, but not Same-Same".

Actually in Yokosuka they were 300 yen. The exchange rate was about 360 yen to the dollar. However since I only made $150 a month a dollar was a lot more than it is today. But man could you have a good time in Taiwan or Bangkok with $10 in yer pocket.



I'll never forget the dumba$$es who would try to get the bargirls drunk, never realizing that the ****s were drinking tea. Like watching Pelosi. You can't buy that sort of entertainment.

Oh, the good old days. When no matter how dodgy the girl was, it could all be cured with a shot and some ointment!

As you head north into Alberta, after crossing from I-15 on the US side, it's not far until you encounter a statue of an Albertosaurus; alas, it's life size, only 2 or 3 stories high.



Up in Fairview, it sounds like they are trying to make Alberta's largest dinosaur, a giant version of a H-D.



Well, the folks in Milk River can fight it out with the folks in Fairview for who can claim the largest dinosaur..
