This is an idea I have seen on another forum, and it seemed like a lot of fun if enough people participate. This forum has more than enough activity that it should take off. The basic idea is this; while riding find certain objects or signs or whatever to take a pic of your bike in front of. Your bike has to be in the pic as well as whatever the specified object is. The first person to post the specified pic wins that round and gets to choose the next object. The object chosen can be as hard or easy to find as you like, as long as you can put a bike in front of it. Let's go with your hometown sign as the first object to find, just to get started. Don't forget to choose another object if you win!

My question is how did you get the bike past the security check point. Did you claimed it as a disability device with a doctors note? 😂

Good job Scrum! You win the first round. Now you get to decide what the next object is to take a pic of a bike with. Can be anything, easy or hard to find, as long as you can get the bike in the pic with it.

Next item to hunt for...
Your bike in front of a police station. Extra kudos if you can get a cop to pretend to write you a ticket.
I pass a police station every morning on my way to work... no way I'm parking my bike in front of it and taking a picture... I don't want to get shot for being a supposed no good terrorist 1%er.

Kept think about this thread everytime I rode past a police station: stop, park my bike, take photo with cell phone, connect cell phone to laptop, upload picture.....

But today riding back from the Pierce Arrow Museum in Buffalo, I stopped to take a sore-butt break in a little village on route 20, was sitting on a bench, looked across the street: State Police sub station counts, right?

Had two ideas for the next challenge, will make it easy: take a photo of your ride in front of a water fall. Must be some level of water falling, garden hoses and car washes do not count!

Extra credit if you can calculate how much power in Kilowatts is being expended by the falls. Show all equations and work, punctuation neatness and correct units are required. No partial credit!

OK, I'm going out on a limb here. There's not a waterfall within hundreds of miles of me. So I thought about you challenge. Take a picture of your ride, I ride a Yamaha so my ride is in picture. It's a picture so zero kilowatts of power is being produced. So do I win?

I love this thread but Photoshop should not be involved. I will try for a waterfall with my bike in the picture. blueblitz09 great idea! I got involved in a similar thread on YMF just before it shut down and would love to see it go on here.

It is supposed to be an original pic with your ride. Photoshop makes everything too easy. I didn't think anyone cared for this thread, glad to see it pop back up!
