He was just giving examples of some fine FJR photos not off in some distant land, showing that you, too, have no excuse for not submitting to the TimDog.

I got a pretty awesome calendar worthy shot from my last trip, but it's totally ruined by the ugly guy who got in the way of my photo.

Means I don't have to

The dumbass who runs this entire place can't even follow simple directions. Yup, he's a Marine. :D
To be clear though, since it was not clear enough for some, my post was to prompt and inspire participation...

The amazing thing about this photo is that there's only one missing.

Thus far, we have 5 entries. Not even close to a calendar. Let's get them in.

OK - I got something to submit.

And Dumbass Pants has re-read the rules. All of them.

Tonight - I'll take a look at my choices and send the two best.

Please don't let us have to pad the pages with more pictures of Tim's bike missing fasteners...

Couple of thoughts...
  • The picture does not have to be from this year...
  • Previous entries could be rebooted
  • we could also include event group pictures. I have EOM 2019 and previous.
Let me see if I have any tech day pictures...

This one of Bob's bike would not be appropriate, but would probably get the most votes...

Is that why there are so view entries??

I rechecked the rules - does not specify that a submitted picture be taken during the current year. It would be nice to have that, but reaching into the archives is a worthwhile exercise at this point.

No, the photos don't have to be from this year. How would we know anyway? It's fine if that's a personal goal, but it shouldn't stop anyone from submitting.

Less than a week to go. We're still short of 12 different people to submit photos.

Go through the archives. May not have been a great riding season for everyone, but I know there's photos from years past that are worthy.
