Let me start off by saying...DANG THAT WASN'T EASY!!!! :? :shock: :?

This was the best turnout that we've had so far for the photo contest. As with everything else that goes on here, it just keeps getting bigger and better.

I scrutinized over these for a while and came up with the top 13 shots for the calendar. I based my decision on composition, image quality and whether or not I felt the bike captured the spirit of the forum. There were probably another 25 shots that could have made it, but I narrowed it down to these 13.

If you see your photo below...please email me the highest resolution shot you have if you would allow me to use it in the calendar... steve@ratrodbikes.com. Also make sure you include your name and the name of the bike in the email. If I don't hear back from the folks below by WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 30th I will select another shot.

A HUGE THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO PARTICIPATED!!!

And now...in no particular order....

gaskill - El Caballo Del Diablo

I got my hi-res sent. I hope it is good enough since the bike is on the way to south Florida.

Congrats to my fellow finalist. I am glad the decision didn't fall on my shoulders, everyone would be ordering a "Bike of the Day" calender. Thanks, Steve!

My big computer crashed, so I didn't have a high res pic, good thing mine didn't get in. Still, I'm glad to see a Dyno in the mix and will have this calendar displayed in the living room again.

Wow, cool pictures. The runner sled bike made me LOL, and I particularly like Wits end's shot. I'm quite surprised my American was chosen, but I will say that that photo is one of my favorites of the shots I took. I use it as the wallpaper on my laptop.
