Google is taking my motorcycle pics for me!

Postby Scott C » Fri Feb 12, 2016 11:30 pm

Last November I took what turned out to be my last overnight motorcycle trip for 2015. The ride back was a bit cool but beautifully sunny. Just north of Viroqua on Vernon County Road B, a car with a camera tripod on its roof was coming south. Surprisingly, I realized what it was and waved for the camera.

Since then I've been periodically checking that stretch of road on Google Street View and waiting for the updated street view to come on line. Google took my picture.

Here's a couple of screen captures or you can look at the link on Google.

It was on the R75/7 instead of the Ural but you can't have everything.

Not only did it give you blurry face syndrome, it blurred your headlight too.

This one makes it look like you're a kid on a scooter!

Yeh, I oughta get that fixed.

My friend, Steve K. told me I missed an opportunity. If I had just turned around and followed the camera car, I could have had my whole motorcycle trip saved on Google Streetview! Genius!
