Bitchfield, Lincolnshire. Didn't go there on purpose but slammed on the brakes to get a pic when I saw it.

The good news is it hasn't been in.

The bad news is it doesn't count unless your Strom is in the pic.

I rode through Penistone last week, but forgot all about the Dodgy Place Name Game.

There are a couple of explanations in the "Site Feedback" section, but I'm not bright enough to understand them  :)

Did my contribution not attract your attention MartinW? I translated it too.  :icon_wink:

It was the right way up and had my bike in it. Or is this the first UK Brexit negotiated result?  :grin:

Not Brexit related Joe as the front page includes the Republic of Ireland - But we did atleast limit it to the British Isles. Otherwise I will be flooded with pictures of Strom's in a small town in North East Austria.
