Title: The 2018 FOC-U Bike Picture Challenge
Post by: fazersharp on 25 February 2018, 02:01:04 PM
A reiteration of the rules.

1. All challenges must be of YOUR bike and a landmark, or something obscure or creative, something most people can ride to in their area.
 
2. Picture has to be taken after challenge is made.
 
3. Challenge is good for a week; if it is not met after that time, the previous picture poster picks a new challenge.
 
4. Nothing illegal to be challenged.
 
5. Keep comments to a minimum; if you comment, post the current challenge in bold type after your comment.
 
6. No repeat challenges.
 
7. No other bikes can be used, eg, your bike next to a Ducati. Some exceptions will be allowed, eg, your bike next to a bike cop.
 
8. Only 1 person can win each challenge; any other entrants will not be counted, due to throwing the whole game off track and adding challenges that don't stand.
 
9. If any dispute about a challenge occurs, 3 oks from others settles the challenge.
 
Remember, this thread is supposed to get people to want to go ride straight away and beat others to the challenge - be creative, but be sensible about it.
 
Have fun Foccers!
