Sidecar and all

.
You're right, it's not a Hog; it is a BSA.
So how does it qualify as an animal for admission to our friendly weekend Camera-Critters meme?

The sign reads "Veterinary ambulance. House calls. Dr. Ariel S..."

The license is for a "collectors' vehicle."
 The rucksack looks as old as the motorcycle.
I like this. I would call this doctor, if I had a pet, and if I lived in Tel Aviv.

Sidecars are so cool! Unfortunatelly we don't see them anymore...

interesting motorcycle. I'll bet the vet that drives that is really cool.

i beati said...

how cool this is thanks for sharing something entirely new Sandy

Indrani said...

Interesting!
Very unusual take on the meme. :)

~~tonya~~ said...

LOL--great idea for the meme.

Oh, my! I learn something every week when I visit! I wish my vet made house calls! =)

Norm said...

hehehe cute motorcycle..

My dad had one of these. I'm originally from Birmingham UK where they were built. BSA - Birmingham Small Arms. Small world, and a great nostalgic image for me.

It certainly has a link with critters and is very important! Shabbat Shalom.

A little bit of a stretch ... but it works!

Jedediah said...

Now I want to see the vet who drives that. It hard enough to find vets who make housecalls, but one with a cool vehicle like that... Great post :)

Dina said...

Shalom friends. I agree with all you say about the vet and the bike.

Babooshka, I never knew what BSA stood for. Wow, your father rode one? That's when motorcycles looked like motorcycles and not big splashy-colored pieces of plastic.

Dina: You had me until you explained, we sometimes call a Harley a hog over here.

Kay said...

Really cute post. I love the idea of a bike riding vet.

Oskar said...

I'd like to ride in that sidecar!

Maria said...

I would trust him, too! Love your post, Dina!

jenn said...

I love it! Very cool bike.

Anna said...

That is really cool. I'm sure it's much nicer for the pets to get a visit from the doctor instead of having to go out.

Ladynred said...

Karen said...

A m,otorcycle vet ... too cool !!! :-)

Catherine said...

Dianne said...

Smalltown RN said...

Dick said...

I like it, I used to have a BSA but that is a long time ago.
This one looks great.

Rambling Round said...

Interesting, Dina! A pet ambulance!

Kendris said...

What a great way to make housecalls! I've always wanted a motorcycle with a sidecar.

Kris said...

How very "ye olde"!

Kenia Cris said...

Hello, I've visited you earlier but didn't leave a word! I'm visiting all the week camera critters and you were there so I'm here. I loved your pictures. ;) Take care!

Chuck Pefley said...

Very cool, Dina. Never driven one but have ridden in a vintage Indian model.

Abe Lincoln said...

I like the idea too. It sure would be more economical for the doctor to travel about to see patients.

Misty Dawn said...

Oh how neat! I'd call this vet too!

Pietro said...

Sidecars are so picturesque! They rushed happily on our roads in the Sixties! :-)

an essential service and a truly beautiful copy. The only doubt is born to me from the antitheft chain...
