Snail Tale

While searching the internet for a picture of a cool cartoon snail I could use as an avatar on our local motorcycle form (to represent my riding speed) I found this picture:

It intrigued me so I had to do a little more net research. When I did, I found the following pictures that, unless someone is mass producing them somewhere, appears as though it is the same vehicle:

My curiosity was piqued so I proceeded to do a little more googling. I managed to find an actual article on the fabrication, which I've linked HERE. It explains all that went into building it with multiple pictures. I did not want to pilfer the photos from the article so I'll let you click on the link. Seems it was designed for Burning Man and that in itself is way cool.

I even managed to find a picture of it at Burning Man while breathing fire:

And while looking for a fire breathing picture of it, I found this.....

I thought the little critter was quite creative.

I honestly think it would be an amazing experience to go to Burning Man at least once in my lifetime, but at the same time I don't think I could 'loosen the bone' enough to actually attend. I know people here in town who have gone but I don't know if Troubadour and I are ready for it. Things that make you go hmmmmm?

  1. Trobairitz:

    a group ride to Burning Man, led by Troubadour would be a ride to remember. At least you wouldn't have to pack any extra clothes

  2. lol - You found a great snail! I notice it has a bicycle rack. ( I wonder which is faster, snail or bicycle?). The little critter is cute too

    Finally we have some real riding weather coming up!!
