I like photos of bikes with old style filling stations...

Here are some of the Versys and some of my other bikes (past and present) with old filling stations.

















The last few are more of a filling station museum.

Not as great quality as your pics, they are awesome. This is my old FJR and my wifes Buell in front of a station somehwere in Michigan in a car museum.
Great theme for picture taking.

here's a few from my last trip on my old bike. This is the last operational Texaco station in the U.S. located in La Grande, Oregon. It was a great station with a super cool owner...

Not so much an old filling station, more, knackered old dis-used pumps along a road in the middle of nowhere.
