Picture Challenge
« on: January 23, 2014, 08:29:17 am »
THE PICTURE CHALLENGE

The game is simple.  Post a pic satisfying the requirements of the challenge.  If you do, you get to create the next challenge.  The game is open to all forum members.  Oh yeah, and the pics have to be taken by you (no surfing the internet for stock photos).

Keep in mind that the challenges should be reasonable or the game will stall...so please avoid "jumping an active volcano," or "the Dali Llama riding shotgun."

The first challenge is simple, any jumping pic.  You don't need to be Travis Pastrana, but a one-wheel-hop won't do (a'la Napoleon Dynamite).  I don't care if it's in your back yard, let's get the ball rolling!

I tried, but kept chickening out.    :o  The photos are too embarrassing to post.  Maybe I'll do better on the next challenge.

I ain't even leavin the garage... Now it's snowing out.  Lame!  Sounds like it'll be high 20's the rest of the week though so I'll be riding for sure.

For whatever reason, that challenge was too tough.  So let me post something easier...if only to get this game going.

A photo of your bike with a historically significant thing or in a historically significant place.

I'll leave it to you to determine what "historically significant" means.  Remember, if you nail this challenge you get to post the next one.  Good luck.

That's me #J8 afixin to pass the two riders in front of me at Outlaw trax.


I have a lot of historic places, but none with me in them.  I'm on the other side of the camera.
How about my ex-625 SXC at the old church in Ruidosa Texas.


Does that qualify for both challenges?

Sure.  Now it's your turn to lay down the NEXT challenge.

Next Challenge.

Post a picture of you & your 690 on the Continental Divide.  The pic must prove you are on the CD. ;) 

I went thru the introduction thread & see a lot of riders out of the US.
For those out of the US.  You & your 690 on a mountain top.

Is Maine far enough away to be "outside the U.S.?"

For your consideration, my Lorna atop Mt. Washington:
