My friend Beth met me by the Mississippi riverfront this morning. Just south of the Poplar Street Bridge in St. Louis.

She was not alone.The riverfront road was an excellent spot for wheelies.https://nolongertheonlyone.files.wordpress.com/2010/10/144d3-halloween20motorcycles20-20wheelie202.jpgThe costumes were fun too!
One costume was a little too realistic – according to Beth, the wearer of Cell Block Psycho aroused the suspicion of a gas station attendant who called the police. The Department of Corrections logo and handcuffs dangling from his wrist added to the verisimilitude!

Two police cars and a van turned up. I imagine they are still laughing about it at the police station.

A touch of bother with one of the bikes delayed the group a little. Cell Block Psycho and Evel Knievel gave good advice while I took advantage of the time to shoot a few more photographs.Maybe gorilla power did the trick with the reluctant bike, for shortly they were all off on their Sunday travels. More photos here!
