While not strictly a "Technical" post, I'll place this here for easy future reference anyway....

Here's a couple rather cool Blackbird wallpapers I've collected over the years (a couple I made myself).

Most are for 1028x768, but you can always "center" them on a black background, etc.

This is one of the original artist renderings of the XX.

I wish I had the cash to buy this when it was on Ebay a while back.
The story was this watercolor was given to 200 members of the press when the Blackbird was introduced back in 96.
If I remember the auction went for well over 200$ I love the autographs and comments to bad they don't reflect the wishes of Hondas R&D now....:(

You should email this pic to Honda and ask them what ever happened to that line of thinking....

WILLSXX That pic is SWEET!!! Wish it was pics of a real bike and SR 71 though.
Yeah would be a tough pic for sure, I do like that they made the window of the SR-71 match the the headlight of the bike though.:thumb:

Hi everybody. Here are some shots of my Blackbird. I posted them in FlickR. Most of them are in a reasonably resolution to be used as wallpaper. There are some others, so, if you want to take a look, here is the link: Flickr: Photos & Video from Alexandre Daher

This last one is a drawing I made. It took me 17 hours of work.But it was worth every single minute.
