Sorry for late entry. Going to take a couple more pics at a different location this week, as I have fenders on it now and a good camera...

Bike is a 1972 Cb750, too many parts gone for a restoration for me, so went the resto-mod route. Pictures taken at Red Rock National Park, just west of Las Vegas.

Below are my submissions.  All photos were taken at my squadron and of my aircraft (VAW-120 E-2C Hawkeye).

So I did have big plans to burn the tire off? Then send those pix in but I couldn't get any one to take them. so this past Sunday. I pull it back out and rode it to my brothers house to keep there for the winter. As I past this lake by my dads house I thought that would be a good spot to take a photo. So I rode up on the sidewalk. so here they are

Just so everyone knows it was 25º out mild wind too lol

She is a good friend of mine (from Lithuania  8) ).  She has done a number of small modeling gigs trying to get into the business.  Pretty cool chic who also likes to ride.  One of her bikes won SV of the year on SVRider.

Very cool, she gets my vote!  Got a link to her bike?

Harsh...we never had a pretty girl in the calendar. That would be a nice change. I hope we can get her in there. Adds a real nice touch...great photos.

Oh, so I am sooo sick of seeing pics of beautiful bikes & fabulous scenery.. ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D
Sadly, my own plans to take photos with those fab backgrounds featuring my ratty bike never materialized.  :'( :'(
Therefore I submit something a little different for calendar consideration, any votes happily accepted.  ;) ;)

Some better pics of my 1972 CB750K2 Resto-mod. These were taken in Las Vegas at the Historical Huntridge Theatre. I tried to get the top of theatre in some pics, but the building was so tall the it dwarfed the bike. Reflections of it can be seen (unexpectedly) in the tank of some pics though.  Local artist painted the mural a few months ago. Cool building, 1 block from where I work. It's undergoing restoration right now.







As we took that last picture I realized, I should just shave my head. I wear a helmet on the bike to work, i wear a helmet at work, then I wear one on the way home!

The missus has a new phone. This is a 'nostalgic' effect that the camera has, I thought it looks kinda nice.



* I just read the rules. CB550F1. It is in the driveway, but it's a nice garden shot behind it right? Feel free to use it if it qualifies. I'll still be buying a calendar if mine doesn't make the cut.  ;)

Ujeni's iPhone pic looks like it could've been on a poster at the dealership.. it's PERFECT!

In my opinion it is one of the best pictures so far. If I'm allowed to make a little comment, stopping the bike a few feet forward would have left the gutter out of the picture. And maybe leaving a little more space between the tail light and the left margin.


At least he took care to put gloves and helmets out of sight!
