    Not my mountain bike, there isn't any graffitti where I ride my Teocali, but here is some cool graffitti that made for interesting backdrops for my road bike in Japan.

    I was looking at the new high rez google maps street view pics a few hours ago... and found some cool graffitti in Oakland, I was also looking in Paris. The Frenchies love graffitti too.

    I can't find the locations I found earlier this evening but here's a link (NSFW): http://maps.google.com/maps?ie=UTF8&...03773584905661

    A few contemporary ones created with rattle cans. Not too bad for rural BFE.

    Grant Park in Milwaukee has this railroad bridge, and since I was a child one side said, "It's a small world, but I wouldn't want to paint it"
    and the other side said, "It's only funny till someone loses an eye". They have since repainted the bridge...what a shame as the graffiti
    was as much a landmark as any other feature of the park, or the city for that matter.

    And FWIW - I proposed to my now wife of years on this bridge, overlooking the waterfall of the lagoon, right in sight of the bridge -

    A few I found a week ago. The first one seems to be very relevant.

    Prophetic graffiti, created 1100 years ago by Bikopelli, Kokopelli's lesser known cousin...

    Also a cool hunting scene on the adjacent panel...

    If more people rode more bikes, more places, more often, the world would be a more better place!

    I've always felt that the archer's arrow (and bow string) was added much more recently. The line is much finer than anything else there.

    Next time you're there...

    Next time you're there, get down close to the archer and you will see that the desert varnish has actually significantly re-formed in the bottom of both of the thin lines, which would seem to indicate that they are very old, as I think it takes a long, long time for that stuff to form. (There are numerous other panels along a stretch of the river between Hurricane and Washington, that are on almost horizontal, slightly inclined slabs, that we were looking for one day, when we realized that they were so old, that they had COMPLETELY re-varnished, and were now black on black, and that we had already walked right past nearly one hundred panels, while looking right at them!)

    I personally think that this is the real deal, and therefore, is one of the most unique petroglyphs I've ever come across. I believe that the thin lines were incised, by using the edge of a stone blade, rather than pecked or chiseled in.

    I can't imagine that the original artist would have created a partial design, without these two lines.

    Oh Yeah, there are some other panels...

    Oh Yeah, there are some other panels in a narrow canyon, a few miles west of Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park, that have also completely re-varnished, and are also now black on black...
