We had a good start of TWM POTM. We don't have much true riding season left boys so get out there and take some pics.

Be sure to check out the guidelines (http://www.2wheelmichigan.com/forums/showthread.php?2645-POTM-Guide-Lines)first, then post away.

So does this mean the pic must be taken in November?

Gas Man

Yes, with the exception of the last week of Oct. But the guidelines are bendable. You got a real recent pic that you just missed the Oct POTM entry?

Just this one from last week

If it isn't recent enough, no biggie.

I took a little ride to Mackinac yesterday. It was a gorgeous 45 degree day.

Real nice Chef. I got a picture to post but it's more depressing than anything... I just winterized the Nightster.

thanks, I never really put my bike away. I go through the steps but any day I can get it to the road I'll ride it.

I won't ride my bike once the salts is flung. PERIOD. Even in the spring, I won't ride it untill it rains real good and washes all the salt away. I paid too much into the bikes and take too good care of them to let them get all salted up.

After my pre-winter winterizing around the house, I winterized the nightster, moved the lift over for the wife's parking spot, and I will continue to ride the Ultra when I can. Now that I have all the winterizing done, I'm hoping to squeeze in some miles.

I know I can't submit these but I still wanted to show them. I rode down to Traverse City today and a friend from Sporttouring.net rode up from Lansing. We had lunch at my favorite restaurant and I had to snap this pic.

Great pics!

Love the bird dog in the 2nd pic!

Why can't those pics count? You just took em. Which one is your fav?

ChefC14

I already submitted the one from the Mackinac Bridge. It wouldn't be cool to remove one and submit another. I don't know what you mean by bird dog.

Gas Man
11-12-2011, 11:32 PM
You can choose which pic you want to enter. Just post which one you want. don't ya just hate when you have so many good pics but can only enter one? :lol:

Bird dog is slang for radar detector or if you get a guy on the highway to drive fast in front of you to "flush out" the cops.

I bought that 2 years ago, right after getting a speeding ticket. It has saved my ass many times.

I hear Ưa. I run a valentine 1 Ín my car and us to run a whistle on my crotch rocket back in the day. Now I just watch myself on the hog. Further it seems to not usually be an issue on the hog either. Cops seem to leave ya alone as long as you're not making an ass out of yourself.

Gasman, just because I think it's the right thing to do I'll use my first pic by the bridge as the POTM admission.

Gas Man

You're call Chef. But there is no problem with switching pictures. We simply never know what the month will give us. Submit something earlier in the month then do something cooler later.

But in $0.02 the bridge pic I think is better anyway.

That was it. Guess google would have ruled that out. I went by four times in three days and never smelled smoke, guess that was a clue too.........
