It's Spring, with Summer and Fall to come. We're all going to be traveling. Plus we all have photos from previous travels. So I'm going to start a thread to post the signs of all 50 states. These are the "Welcome to . . ." highway signs.

Add your sign photos below. I'll copy the links onto this first post, and build an alphabetical display. Please make sure your photo is of a state that's not already listed.

Alaska


Arizona


Arkansas


California


Colorado


Connecticut


Delaware


Florida


Georgia


Hawaii


Idaho


Illinois


Indiana


Iowa

Love the idea but I have to ask: Is it possible to get one for Hawaii? Never been so I'm curious if an island has the signage.

Apparently there is one. I found this on the internet. Looks like it's in an airport, rather than on a highway. But I'm not adding it to the file, because we may actually have a member who can submit one, and that would be more in keeping with the spirit of the thread.

In keeping with the trend so far, I'd suggest that any photo of a state sign should also have a motorcycle (or some part of one) included in the photo. The Hawaii one therefore would require someone to take a moto trip to the airport. Hopefully the sign is on the exit road and not in the baggage claim area.

Thanks for the South Dakota and Kansas signs, and don't worry too much about the "rules." They exist as guidelines, so we don't get a bunch of travel brochure photography. We want stuff that has motorcycles in it, has motorcyclists in it (yours qualifies), or simply speaks "someone on a motorcycle took this." Without that, they're just pretty pictures without a two-wheeled soul.

And so are you and everyone who contributes to the goal of getting all 50 state welcome signs. It's a team effort. Can't wait to see your Maine photo. We're getting close to having 3/4ths of the states done.

Happy to do it EffBee. Here's maybe an idea for another one: Something along the lines of significant or historical road signs and their meaning.

Raan! Suiting up, hitting the road, and taking one for The Team. Thank you, sir! Some 30% of these pics must be yours, you world traveler, you. Thank you once again for sharing with us all.

Tha just leaves:

New Jersey

Ohio

and an unphotoshopped Hawaii (or maybe a professionally photoshopped Hawaii). Love the thought, though, Pat. Still makes me laugh. thumbsup

Only one picture, and no ride tale? Slacker.

Ok, this could be considered a stretch but hey, it's how I roll. laugh This fine gents name is Kent and he hangs out at ADVRider. This is a pic of him and his bike that he shipped to Oahu. He graciously offered it up to help us finish the states. Your call F.B.

Thanks, Pat. Given Hawaii's geographic isolation, and the assumed rarity of a "Welcome to Hawaii" road sign, we'll take it. Please thank Kent for us.

Just Jersey and Ohio to go.

The North Dakota pic is great but Ron B already owns that spot.

Thanks. Both are nice shots. Right now we've got 48 of the 50 states, and we're just missing Ohio and New Jersey. If anyone has those, we'll have all the states.

Good try, Pat. But state flags just don't cut it. We'll wait. Surely someone has traveled through those states and taken a photo at their respective state lines.

Thinking about it, on my way down to the RCR I stopped in Port Jervis NY for gas and a burger. Or, was it the burger then gas? Any event, I was so close to the NJ State Line! dopeslap
