I saw you on Google Earth
« on: June 19, 2015, 07:07:08 am »
So I was planning a ride (per Subaru Forester not D/S) and as I do, I like to look around the little towns on Google Earth. More than once now I have stumbled across bikes parked in front of the local hotel. Usually the Royal Hotel in the small little dorpies. These specific screen shots are from this morning while scouting out Steytlerville. Anybody know or own one of these bikes? Anybody also stumble across adventurers and their bikes on Google Earth?



People say nothing is impossible, but I do nothing every day. And doing nothing often leads to the very best kind of something.

I will have to set up a Google Earth speed trap camera gadget here in Jansenville to identify all you fuckers that simply drive by without a coffee stop. Nou is julle kak geboek.  ;)

My good wife is in two street views just outside our house. As she was walking home the Google camera car passed her twice.

They usually have a copyright year on the bottom of the view. These 2 in the OP is marked as 2014.
