A Blogger’s Centerline Day (ABCD) Entry

Here is my entry for Gary France’s ABCD. He is running a contest to inspire bloggers to take a photo of themselves, their bike, and a road centerline on May 1, 2011.

I wanted to do something a bit different. I wanted to get all my bikes in the photo while I do my Stig impersonation.

A Blogger Centerline Day Photo ABCD

From left to right: WR250R, SV650, R1150GS, Super9.

Yes, the silly Ural is still broken and waiting for parts a hundred miles away, so it doesn’t get to participate.

It was a cold day for this. 37F with 30mph winds. Yay for windproof moto gear!


  1. I love this Stig!!...I mean Chris!! Hey I see a very familar motorcycle there next to you! Great fun entry!

  2. Nice fleet, Chris! A bike for every mood.

  3. Eve: LOL Thanks Eve :) Yup, my hand is on the SV650. Love that bike. It's still my favorite.

    Richard: Thank you! Yes, one for each mood and purpose. :)

  4. Wow. Look at all those machines. Reminds me of a picture I saw on Friday in the local pet supply store. Woman had eight English Setters in her house. Four bikes feels the same....*grin*

    Nice picture. Gary should have said no helmets so we could see your smiling face!

    Gary: First, I need to apologize for dropping the ball on publicizing ABCD. I read your missive about doing it NOW but told myself I would do it later....

    Anyways, I posted my celebratory ADCD post made on a gloomy central Pennsylvania morning. It's called ABCD: A Bloggers Centerline Day.

    I look forward to seeing everyone's pictures.

  5. as I am a HUGE Stig fan. I love your picture +1!


  6. Thumbs up for the Stig. Lovin' it. Had my hubby do a Stig impersonation, too in my ABCD picture. Two minds think alike ;-)

  7. Steve: *grin* The bikes are all fun :) I gotta keep up the stig thing with Gary. It's a bit of an inside joke since his visit last year.

    Allen: Thanks!! If only Stig rode a motorcycle sometimes :)

    SonjaM: Great minds! I liked your pic too! Brave sitting in the middle of the road.
