If you don't want that 'pie' then would you pass it to me, please?

Thanks Rick! I was looking and saw what I thought was a Lambo and sure enough you got one in there as well. That is a very impressive line up of super cars.
And I agree the thread said pictures of what you saw while on a bike ride....even though it might have said two pictures.

Here's one from last Monday's ride along the Erie Canal. As you can see, the canal has not yet been filled for the boating season.

This is Lock #32 as we approached from the West. Just to the right of the towpath is the lock and farther right is the infamous Lock #32 spillway which is a major draw to Kayakers from all over the East. To the left of the towpath is a wide waters area.

Yes kr32,

I did post a few super-car photos, but apparently they didn't offend the mods. Who knew? Maybe the mods are car girls and guys too?

It was impressive when they came by us, first from behind. The Ferrari went by first, and I was like "Wow, check it out a Ferrari 599!" And then the Merc.-McLaren flew through my field of vision ("Wow, check it out, etc.), repeat for the Lambo, the Alfa (yeah, very beautiful!) and the R8.

Then maybe an hour and a half later, they came back from the opposite direction. Very cool. So when I saw them all parked, I just had to stop and take some photos. Couldn't help myself, really .

We had 20 riders on our usual Friday jaunt. Everyone seemed to be chatty and having fun.
