    Old Barns can be a superb background for a vintage motorcycle.

    Here is a new game:
    Photograph your XS650 in front of an Old Barn.
    In September of this year, if we get enough involvement, perhaps we'll take a vote on who posts the largest number and the most interesting photos.

    Remember the last game?

    I will take the liberty to share a couple great ones:

    Gary's (2020, Wisconsin USA):

    The potential for Great Photos to appear has quite a history at this forum.

    Love the idea. Illinois is blessed with a lot of old barns. Almost as common as a milk cow in WI.

    Located at the base of Mauna Kea, this barn has been abandoned for quite some time.

    If anyone is near Wytheville, VA I know where a great barn is on my parents property.

    Saw this on the south side of 2 lane highway today. Directly behind it is 2 sets of active railroad tracks. Not sure what the building was for but I suspect it had something to do with the railroad. A bit of off roading to get to it. I know it's not a barn but it is old.

    Man you guys are getting right after it! Nice photos guys, and Greg I like the way you had to go right past the no trespassing sign to get there. It always seems like the good stuff is somewhere we don’t belong! :D

    Greg, I sense the stirrings of another game thread, "Photo of Your XS650 with an Abandoned House".
    I'm fascinated with abandoned buildings, and the soul that might still inhabit them.

    Not sure it was house. Maybe change this thread to just old buildings. Kind of would catch it all.

    Perhaps you could revisit the place, go inside and hang out for a while.
    It might speak to you in some way.

    That’s a cool old building and an interesting history! It’s fun to unearth the history that’s all around us. ;)

    Still not a barn. I do think it has something to do with farming. Under the left side is the same 2 sets of tracks that are behind the building I posted yesterday. I spotted a couple of old barn today. We had rain last night. Too wet to go offroading to get to them. Another day.

    You are certainly "on the path to discovery", Greg.
    Your bike looks just great in the foreground, BTW.
