Nope, but they tend to not make it into the calendar. :(

You do realize there's a way to fix that, right? Throw 1 leg over the seat on the FJR, twist the throttle and go get some photos!

I don't have enough vacation time this year to get far enough away to find pretty places to take calendar worthy photos. That happens about every other year as I bank time from the previous year. I'll have to enjoy everyone else's photos this year.

Also, it's 107F today. I ain't throwing a leg over anything. I'm hard pressed to walk to from the air-conditioned house to the air-conditioned car.

We are all talking in jest here. Everybody would like to have a photo good enough to be voted onto the calendar...it's an honor and an ego thing.

However, if you have been fortunate to have had a good day or weekend on a bike, any bike, then you are blessed already and need no approval from your friends and peers here. If you have a photo from said good day or weekend, you are doubly blessed...because you have a reminder of that awesome snapshot in Father Time's hourglass.

I'm in a similar boat this year - it's been packed full of family first activity - A high school graduation, 4H horse shows & fair; she qualified for the State 4H horse show as well, open house... No summer adventure for us. I was - to Wheaton's point - fortunate enough to put in some memorable miles last month (for an unfortunate reason) that will mean more in the end that anything else this year.

If y'all can't get photos to/during/from EOM, then shame on you. WV is full of beautiful scenes!

Plenty of time left to track down some shots.
