Default never know where you will find a chopper...

I was up in Silverton, Colorado this past week. This tiny town of about 650 sits at over 9,000' far from anything in the southwestern part of the state. I think only the main street is paved.
I was wandering around in town for a bit and I stumble on a fucking chopper sitting on a guys lawn in his front yard! Made my damn day......

I thought it was pretty nice too. it was just sitting there, not for sale. Saw pretty much zero choppers on the roads in and around the Four Corners area....all baggers and adventure bikes.....one or two of those big ass tire abortions in Durango. Did see one rigid frame Trump but couldn't get a picture of it....would have had to put down the beer I was drinking.
