Calendar Contest Reminder

Post by extrememarine »

It's been great to see and read more ride reports lately, along with the accompanying pictures. As you're out on the road this year, don't forget about capturing some "calendar worthy" shots during your adventures!!

Somewhere near Boone, NC - because sometimes you have to go...

#1 - two thumbs up

#2 - one thumb up

#3 - a photo of going #1? I can relate, but I wouldn't want to see it every day for a month. :)

Not at all; but every time his FJR has ejected a fastener (or 3), there has been a replacement provided. :D

Bump and reminder - pumpkin spice latte's are on the menu at starbucks according to the BMW forums, so that means fall colors are right around the corner and so is the annual calendar contest.

I hope someone is getting better pictures that I have managed so far for the calendar.

That structure, what ever it is, is clearly an example of someone with too much time on their hands. Looks like something that came off of Wheatie's drawing board! :D

That is an old ore dock - used for loading iron ore (and other mined materials) onto freighters. Here's a link that talks about it more.

Its always a challenge for me to remember to stop and take pictures along the way.

I did upgrade my gopro game, so hopefully I can capture some more shots like the one above from it while I'm trying to keep up...

It's always nice to come to this board and feel all that affirmation and positive vibes. :lol: :lol:

I had a nice trip recently, but my camera skills are not road worthy. I will still foolishly submit something just for the pleasure of watching it become an "also ran". :lol:
