I remember him posting that he was not going to make EOM due to something coming up - but he's shot last year was exceptional for sure!

Bump - almost done - I hope everyone has made their picks. I see firmware update Designflaw implemented isn't working out exactly as planned, but I'm excited to have a picture in mix this year!

Was gixxerjasen's picture photoshopped or something? I thought every time he dismounted, the bike hit the ground, unless he had a curb or a gas pump to lean on?

Awesome pictures everyone!

It's possible to stand it back up for the picture after it's been dropped. No photoshopping necessary. :lol:

And that's that. Congratulations to the top 12!

It'll take me a few days to get the calendar together, but once it's done, there will be links posted. Thank you to everyone who participated.

Just another reason to ban mail-in voting. Fkn cheaters. No way boogerboy got 80 million 31 votes... plus it looks like Blueridge, Wayne, and Tyler got more votes... that's some Chicago counting there I tell ya!

Guys, I know you're anxiously awaiting the links to purchase calendars. Things got swamped last week and the calendar had to become a lower priority.

The good news is that the artwork is being proofed right now and assuming I did things right, the links should be posted very soon. I apologize for the delay and thank you for your patience.

You Suck! If I could give zero stars for this review I would. How dare you take care of more important things than my calendar.

Still here! This year has been full of craziness. Health and family issues combined with the schedule of wrapping up my grad school work meant that I didn’t have a lot of time for my favorite hobbies. I definitely still found time to ride, but didn’t get a lot of time behind the camera lens outside of paid clients.

I wasn’t able to make EITHER of the meetups I planned on making (SEO Ramble and EOM) due to the aforementioned conflicts, but I’m still here! Hopefully I’ll have some pictures for next year’s calendar now that grad school is done and family/health issues are susbsiding.

Great images this year, though. I voted for sure!

Does anybody know if the 10% discount coupon is available, and if so, what is the code?

The code WARMUP15 currently works for 15% off. It is in the post where the purchase links are. I usually try to find something before I post it since Lulu always seems to have a code for some kind of discount. You can Google Lulu.com coupon code (that's what I do). There are sites that list potential codes and how recently they were used.

If that code no longer works, let me know and I'll update the main post.
