Following on from the first part of our naked motorbiking posts, did you know SL had it’s own ‘Route 66’ sim?
This post was originally predicated by Harry finding ‘Route 66’ and doing a (non nude) photosession with model Jess (the photos above).
Harry likes to do his own photos, as well as stuff for SLN, and mentioned ‘Route 66’ in an IM to me recently. As the naked motorbiking post was already half-way through completion, I thought it would be remiss not to take the opportunity to add a second post from one of the world’s iconic highways. Perhaps the world’s most iconic highway. So we rounded up my biker friend Karen, who isn’t routinely naturist in SL, being much more attracted to bike sims, but not averse to getting her leathers off, and Harry and her headed out to the sim to capture a few shots.
It certainly looked like a photogenic sim, somewhere you could rezz a bike and do racing down the world’s most iconic highway (see the photos with Jess). I’ve tp’ed into it this morning (Monday) to check it out for myself, and was disappointed to find it gone! Whether this is temporary or permanent, I don’t know. I’ll do an update on it if it should return.
Nudity and bikes often seem to go together, what with the various biker rallies around the world ‘encouraging’ states of undress.
And in naturism there’s lots of bikers, some being hardy souls who will bike the length of France and Spain to reach the Med.
Two of my naturist friends are a Dutch couple who do that, packing a tent and sleeping bags onto their bike, and taking a few days, perhaps a week, to reach the Playas, because they take a rather circuitous route along the French A7, l’autoroute du soleil (motorway to the sun) and then the Spanish Mediterranean Highway, the Autovia A7, which allows them to stop off near the sea for the night, perhaps managing a bit of a naturist swim (at a non-naturist location) at the end of a long, hot day in the saddle.
I can’t think of any more iconic European motorways than the A7, which also runs directly down the centre of Germany, but it’s not particularly ‘romantic’, is it?
No one is singing songs about the A7 (well, maybe they are, but I can’t imagine it’ll be a standard in 60 years, unlike a song to perhaps America’s most iconic road, Route 66.
Which…as chance would have it…is where the blog visits next.
