Does a former bike count? We owned this Sportster up through fall 2013. This was taken June 2013 at Burlington Bike Night, Burlington, NJ.

This is from the first post
dean owens wrote: THE BASICS:

Name a place or thing to take a picture with your bike. First person to go out, take, and post the picture picks the next one. Must be a picture taken after the challenge started! Try not to make it impossible. No photochops. If nobody else gets the picture within 48hours the person that picked it can choose a new one. New challenge must be picked when picture of the last one was posted...

RULES:

1) if a challenge is not met after 48hours a new topic is picked by the last winner...

3) your bike should be in ALL pics...

4) after any comment, please put the current challenge at the bottom so everyone can stay up to date.

5) Pictures must be taken AFTER the challenge. Don't cheat, there's no point of cheating... the point is to get out and ride!

Sadly there are lots of stores closing down around my small LA suburb. I may go out and win this challenge tomorrow but I can't say I'll celebrate it!

The riding season is underway here in Utah, Rubia and I took the Twinjas out to stretch their legs and got this pic on the way. Let's see if our voodoo is strong enough to resurrect this thread!
Next challenge, your bike at a coffee shop. That's easy! Read the OP for rules and join The Riding Game!

Great idea Eric!

I'll see if I can get a photo in tomorrow... thus, you all have 24 hours to beat me to it!

Gonna change it up since we haven't got any movement.

For Mother's Day, your bike with a bouquet of flowers in the frame! Or in the parking lot of a florist if you can't find some flowers .

Since it's past mothers day, I figured a flower shop will do.

For the next photo I'd like to see your bike in front of a historical landmark near your town. Kudos for a short history lesson explaining what it is if it's not obvious.

Here's a couple teasers from the Lolo Pass trip we just came home from. More pictures and narrative to come in my blog!
This is the Twinjas at the Splash Dams historical marker on the Payette River, somewhere along ID-55 south of Smith's Ferry.

Next challenge, your bike with a school bus in the frame! School's out pretty soon most places across the US so this might take some adventuring!

I'm bikeless at the moment. I need to find a place to live before I can get another bike. I could pretend and use my Dodge Ram. LOL

It's been almost a month since school started. On my ride to work everyday, I pass my baby boy (he's 14 years old and in the 9th grade) waiting at the bus stop. He stands there with his friends, (his hoodie pulled up covering his line of vision this morning) and never looks at me. Not a look, a smile, nor a wave. I remember being a teenager and I remember what it was like to have my parents around when I was with my friends but come on!!!! lol Gotta give me props for being on a Ninja right? And... my hair is dyed red to match my bike, (upon my son's request even). Kawasaki calls it Passion Red <3 Embarrassing mom or not, gotta give me props for being on a bike instead of in beat up old Ford Taurus hatchback right? Could be worse... Sigh.. maybe someday I'll get a hint of a wave.

Anyway.... The riding game has been stalemate for quite some time now and it makes me sad. If you are new to the TMW forums let me first say welcome :) You're in a great place with a great bunch of people. Second, check out the riding game and play, here's how it works: One guy/gal makes up the next picture challenge, say... your bike next to a dairy cow, the first person to take a pic of their bike with a dairy cow in the frame wins that round and gets to post the next challenge. It's a fun way to stay connected, show off our shiny bikes and gives us an excuse to go out and ride and explore. I remember how much fun my hubby Jack of the Green and I had stalking armored trucks for a pic. We had no luck and somebody else won, but 2 days after the challenge had been met, I just happened to be at the bank teller window on my Shadow and here comes an armored truck to refill an atm. I had to get my phone out and snap a pic, just for self gratification :D

The current challenge is... you guessed it. 'Your bike with a school bus'. I'll give you a couple days to meet this challenge before I actually stop on my way to work, put my kickstand down and snap a pic of me and my red hair, my pretty Ninja and my mortified baby boy and his friends as the school bus arrives. I'll totally do it. He'll thank you in advance for your participation :D

We can have a lot of fun posting fall pics before we have to garage our pretties for the winter... boo...
