I pulled up the voting page and said "I gotta go vote for Tyler's shots because those were awesome! Then I looked :shock: and said "Those weren't the shots. Hmmm, guess she didn't like my advice!" :roll:
Actually the 1st one of the Spyder at Yosemite was one of your choices... or at least I thought it was! ;)

You are right, I forgot I gave three choices. I did like that one with the S curve. How did you not have enough image size on that one?

Probably because I shot it with my smaller camera while in motion and then had to crop it a bunch so you could see the bike in it which reduced the file size a bunch... ;)

I already got a bunch of them mailed to me. Sent them all back in post marked after the 30th. I used a sharpie too after I kicked everyone out of the room. LOL


You are so right, we pulled out the good ones for sure.

A couple bring back memories, in particular FjrjrF's pic of Hawk's Nest. Every time I go, I do it multiple times in both directions, better during a weekday where there's less cars, and work yourself up an appetite for pizza in Port Jervis. Good place to practice your second gear twisty riding, lol.

This day in 2010, three amigos did multiple runs while I took pics and video. We were on our way to an ST event in CT.

A shameless bump to point out that with over a week left to vote, we have already exceeded 2018 and 2019 number of votes, and will likely exceed 2020 over the weekend. In that light, if you haven't voted yet, please do so.

We've got some really good pictures on this one, ya'll. It just keeps getting better. And I'm not sure that we are all becoming expert photographers, although clearly, we have all up'd our shutter bug game. Nay, I contend that at least some of our material is due to the scenery. We are reaching. We are adventuring. We are stretching our limits.

And perhaps most importantly, we are riding.

Stay thirsty, my friends.....

Just checked the results, dammit I voted TimDog Geek on Nov. 2, WTF is he slipping to second place for?
My fault for mentioning Hawk's Nest?
Dunno how I'm gonna sleep tonight.

There's still time to get votes in. There are still quite a few of you that haven't voted for all the photos.

How did I slip to 3rd place?! STOP THE COUNT! I mean COUNT ALL THE VOTES! This has been the most fraudulent calendar contest (not really). I WON THE CONTEST (if you only count the people that voted for me)!

Kidding aside, I want to thank you all for contributing with votes and submissions. I know it was a down year of riding for many of us. We surpassed the total vote count, despite having fewer submissions. The number of votes still aren't as even as I would have thought, but I still like the idea of releasing all the images at once.

This will be another great calendar. I hope to have it for sale by the end of the week. There will be an announcement as soon as it is ready.

Youse guys leave TimDog alone! It'll be ready when it's ready and not before that. Chillax! First page is January 2021, so wait for it. That's a month away, and I don't know about you but at this age I don't want time passing before its time.
