We have oak trees with brown leaves still hanging on them. I'm trying to figure out if I open the shed door, I can stand inside the shed, take a picture with a bike in the foreground and the oak tree in the background......... Not wheeling the bike out of the shed, 'cause there's a snow squall here right now!

I can go out on a ride tomorrow as it will be almost 70 here in Austin, TX after the ice storm that just shut the city down on Friday.

That's definitely a LOT colder than it was here for our ice storm. However, today was a lovely 65. :)

Not beautiful autumn colors, as I wished, but will this do?

Agreed! Very nice! Next challenge is going to be a little tough. Not many of them around here, but I've seen a few. Now to find one and chase 'em down, then get them to pull over. :lol:

SNAG!

No driver unfortunately, we had to give up looking for them on the road and started looking for them in mechanic's parking lots.

That's my youngest in the saddle, she's eight. (-: Since I took the picture with her, I let her pick the next challenge.

And BabyGirl says...

Your bike with a Porsche. Yep, she's a gearhead already. (-:

Happy hunting!

Ya know....Porsches are a dime a dozen on the streets...usually....there are plenty of those Cayenne SUV's around...I went out riding..twice...rode through parking lots and by golf courses...and saw nary a one. Who would have thought?....

Oh well... it will quit raining again one day and I can give it another try. :frusty:

I'll go north of the river on the weekend....it should be easy then.

It took me over 8 municipalities and several outings....I should have just gone into Vancouver in the first place..... :roll:

Next challenge...

Your bike...with a coffee shop in the picture where someone is outside having a beverage of some sort and they are reading a book or newspaper. (or a public space with a person on a park bench or similar with a beverage and reading)

Check out the dude on the right :) totally engrossed in his reading material. Since the riding game hasn't been too active lately I'll pick something easy for the next challenge.
Your bike next to the gas pumps. Fill it up!!!!!! Have fun and ride safe.

Doc and I went for a ride today. Guess what....We needed fuel. :mrgreen:

It's so tiny because that's how Doc emailed it to me from his I-phone camera.

Your next challenge is to have a before (pre ride=clean)and after (post ride=bug guts) picture of your windshield....

If you don't have a windshield then your headlight will do.

That's a good challenge B2C except that it would require me to start by actually cleaning the bugs off my windshield. Perhaps it is time to order that Givi Airflow.
