Sepia Saturday

2014.09W.03

This week’s Sepia Saturday prompt inspired me to search the archives for photos with motorcycles. I found the three below which charmed me for different reasons.

    That first photo is a classic with its wicker ‘sidecar.’

    I liked that he put the “sidecar” in front. Why not?

    Obviously the passenger in the extra seat in front runs interference for the driver. Smart move on his part!

    I hope he made a good job of the additional seat otherwise he risked losing his passenger!

    I hope he kept his peddling to the flat parts of Singleton as it would be hard work with the extra weight on board.
