Riding his Motorcycle

Riding his Motorcycle

Nice spring weather yesterday with around 15C and a clear blue sky. I took a bike ride as did this guy although he is cheating by using an engine. I was having a cup of coffee at my favorite cafe when I heard the motorcycle, from where I was sitting I only had a second to get the shot but it turned out OK. A little later I had to walk home with the bike after a third flat tire in a week.

Do Swedes know Steppenwolf's Born To Be Wild? I think it is easier to be wild in the US than in Sweden.

Right now I wish I were in Sweden. It is 3C here in Chicago, where we are visiting our son.

Et fantastisk foto!
Han er jo som skapt for DET kjøretøyet.
Wrom-wrom.
Jeg hører nesten musikk også.
Born to be wild.... ?
Fin komposisjon i bildet.
Kontrasten mellom den lille balkongen og den store motorsykkelen er super.

He knew you would be there, he came on purpose!

Of course they do Bob. I guess you know that Sweden has the biggest Harley Davidson club in the world.

You could be on to something there Mr. Poet. I think he lives around the corner from the cafe and was on his way home, so he probably knew I was sitting there!

Sorry about the flat tire. Hopefully the third will be the last for quite a while. Fancy motorcycle this guy rides!

great pic!!
here they always talk about riding their bike when they refer to such an engine-driven machine.... always find that funny...
yesterday i even saw a bikeshop and was looking forward to see my so much missed mode of transportation... but ofcourse... it were motorcycles... :(

This is pretty good for a fast shot. Heck, it would be pretty good for a staged shot, too.

Kitty said...

ha, what a familiar posture. Great that you got this photo done in such a rush.

Happy Spring, Steffe!

I just had "Henry" the Harley rider on my blog and now you have a biker dude on your blog, too!

He drove up to the cafe today, so I walked over to say that I got a photo of him on his bike, but he had already seen it!
