Wow! Very Happy Thanks for all the votes everyone and a big thank you to Bert for organising the contest.
Way out in that part of our wide "sunburnt country" (although it was raining when I crossed) there's not much for a motorcyclist, just long, seemingly never ending straight roads. Thankfully they are good roads. I can't remember seeing a pothole or even a repaired one for that matter. Regardless, the experience is amazing and the scenery is spectacular at times particularly with changing weather conditions.
I was constantly reminded of Dorothea MacKellar's famous Australian poem 'My Country'. I won't bore you all with a full recital but here's the famous second verse. You can read the full poem here.

I love a sunburnt country,
A land of sweeping plains,
Of ragged mountain ranges,
Of droughts and flooding rains.
I love her far horizons,
I love her jewel-sea,
Her beauty and her terror
The wide brown land for me!


Congrats also to the other winners.
I particularly like Smithy's shot. Looks like it could be from our Snowy run last year?? That was a blast.
And a cool photo from nvboy. Well done.

This photo comp is great because it shows the diversity of riding conditions and experiences of our members from all around the world.
Cheers all.

I can say that your picture was the clear winner of this contest. You got 10 times more votes for the first place than anybody else. This is the first time that I didn't have to scratch my head and calculate to declare a winner.
The second and third place were very very close, but the rule being the rule, Canada only scored 3rd with nvboy's entry Sad.

When I saw all the pics I didn't have a doubt who would end up on top. Fabulous pic, fabulous scene, Holister. Thanks for all who voted.
Haven't had the SE out in three months. We've had the worst winter in 50 years here on Vancouver Island where we're supposed to have the best climate in Canada. Granted, saying "the best climate in Canada" is like saying "the best wine of Idaho", but you get the idea...

Congratulations to all the winners but that one of Holisters was just outstanding.
I have been a keen nature photographer all my life and would have only 3 or 4 photos that come close. A truly remarkable shot.

Fabulous Calendar Bert!

Thank you so much...the file is going straight to my work email so I can print a copy or two (better quality printer is the only reason... ) One will adorn my desk at work...and remind me of what I would rather be doing, so it's kind of legit!

Well done to all the winners -Holister's was totally awe inspiring. Great work.

Just a thought - it would have been nice to have enjoyed TWB's January pic for a month, perhaps the calendar should run Feb 17 to Jan 18? Yes Bert, I know I am an ungrateful SOAB! Another thought, it might be easier to run the picture contest a month earlier and have this wonderful gift in January.

This is a great competition, goes to show that we don't need prizes or otherwise coercing to have a go.

Great job CF....I believe the June 2017 pic should be accredited to Que-KCien Kuk.

Thanks 88.

This is one of the problem when people are posting pictures from one of their private sites. When they delete the pic, it's not available to the forum anymore.
For the next contest, it will be mandatory to have the pictures uploaded to servimg.com.

To the ungrateful SOAB Very Happy , you are right! (I wasn't planning to make a calendar but Charlie99 hinted me) I will run the contest earlier in 2017 to have a calendar made before January.
I was a little bit disappointed this year because the amount of people voting was really low. Don't be fooled, it takes a lots of time to organize it and create the contest.
Just let's hope that 2017 will be different.
Cheers to all,
Bert.

Thanks Bert - I certainly do really enjoy the quality of this forum and appreciate the huge amount of work that you put in behind the scenes to make it all work seamlessly.

While us mere mortals can't help you with the painstaking effort of writing the code or any of the other daily tasks needed to keep the forum functioning, I feel we can help by contributing through asking for help, giving help, submitting ride and resto reports and supporting things like the photo contest (both in submitting entries and especially by voting). I share your disappointment that this years vote count was low - it must be even more disappointing for you after you have freely given many hours of your time to making it happen.

indeed I agree bae ...
berts timeless efforts seam to go under the radar from time to time...

I agree with the contributions thought ... so if you see something that is familiar or have just a touch to add ...and to make a contribution to the wealth of knowledge ...please do so ....and to me, I love to see alternative thoughts and ideas ...rather than the old line ...take it to an expert .

for me the willingness to attempt something outside our usual skill set is awesome

likewise the pictures contest

cheers bert, wonderful stuff and many thanks for hosting the event
I was hoping that we could share the amazing pics on the facebook "bmwk75/k100 owners - lovers" page as a testament to the appreciation of our old girls and some of the amazing things that go on in here

I think that we may find that the calendar is printed many times - although we may never know the results

cheers

Bert, when I went to vote, the page closed down unexpectedly without me selecting even one entry. When I opened the page again it said I'd already voted and I couldn't submit again. If this was a glitch that others experienced, it may be why there weren't too many votes cast. Just a thought.
Once again mate, we're heapin' loads of biker love on ya from down unda mate. Cheers
