starting now. lets keep it simple, it must be a photo; taken by the person that submits it, (no copying off the net or steeling from Wade) was taken in the last 12 months, and contains a motorcycle.

voting begins dec. 15th

Here's one I took back around Easter. I was waiting for the ambulance but had the presence of mind to capture the moment. Painful memories eek

Dieter,
Hey man hope you are doing well brother.
Rene's new girder looks a LOT like one of your own bikes... or is that my imagination?
Posted By: expresidente Re: how bout another contest? - 12/10/18 9:08 am
Hi Tom
Thanks buddy, i am doing fine. Did follow your adventures around the world with much interest. Your pics are just great and whenever you post new stuff it will brighten our days.
about the bike: it was mine before. I build it from nearly nothing, just bits and pieces. So you can say its kind of "my breed". Rene took it over because he is a good guy and he was in need of a trustful ride. We are riding together a lot. He is a good riding mate because he never moans about pain in the arse and never ask silly questions like" when we will be there..." There are not too many guys who are willing to spend 12 hours in the saddle of a rigid girder bike, but he is. In the beginning the bike had a telescope-fork, but we both are in love with this old style [***]. So he got an upgrade with my spare-girder. Thats the story.
Hope to see you next year, brother. How is your plan for the international BSA Rally in England?
Dieter

That is a cool bike Dieter


Posted By: expresidente Re: how bout another contest? - 12/11/18 6:28 pm
Hi Wade
Thanks, yes, cool bike. Just seen your pics from 6. Street Bike Shop. First of all i thought it might be your shed....the Triumph looks cool, too. Very odd rigid custom fork. No way to get this one roadlegal here in Germany, though.
Would be the right bike for this bike meet: http://thecastlerun.blogspot.com/
cheers my friend

Hi Dieter,

AH! well that's that, then. I hope to meet Rene sometime, maybe we can ride together wherever we meet. As for the BSA International in 2019, attendance IS in the planning stages. Shaun has agreed to loan me (us really as Miss C will attend also) his OIF BSA, now all I need to do is secure a room and get plane tickets. Time will be somewhat tight, so we'll basically spend the rally week and not much more time than that. Look forward to seeing you there!

I might suggest voting be closed on December 31st

Wade and Tom doing their best to return a bike to the road, was a fun afternoon! Yes, alcohol was involved.

Posted By: ricochetrider Re: how bout another contest? - 12/18/19 10:53 am
Here's one from a ride out on the ol' rock & roll Norton, to visit a newly rebuilt Covered Bridge last summer. The Dellville bridge was burned badly by unknown vandals some years ago and oner the past 2 summers, was rebuilt completely.
