A bit off topic, but adventurous. I heard about this mysterious auction. Actually, it was not an auction for Crystal China or Steiff teddy bears...it was an auction for military tanks, believe it or not. Sounded interesting to me, I never been to such an thing. So I saddled my 1150 GSA and rode to this estate in Portola Valley. When I arrived at the location, I found two large warehouses full of German, American, Russian, British tanks, amored personnel carriers, cannons, amphibious vehicles amongst other war toys. The actual auction took place in a crowded white tent with an auctioneer screaming numbers. I stuck around for an hour or so, took some pictures and headed on out to do some shopping for my upcoming journey to South America...and no, I did not buy a tank.
