Congrats to everyone that posted photos as that's what makes this contest great. I really enjoyed seeing all the fantastic photos of our treasured k bikes in great locations.
Thanks also to Bert for running this contest every year. It's great fun that gives us inspiration to ride to different locations for that perfect pic.

+1 on that sentiment Smithy.

With the demise of the "Let's play Tag" post...kind of fizzled out for some reason which was a shame, it is good to plan a day out thinking about photo opportunities to show case both bike and scenery to share around the world.

Tough competition though, with many excellent entries. Well done to the winners - NVBoy, Smithy & Ed - beautifully composed pictures and well deserved success.

Were you the one who once posted pictures of some K bike parts warming up in the oven?
If this is the case, the calendar will be in good place.

Capturing the layering of white, grey, black and blue in the natural landscape compared with the same hues of the moto on its road is inspired, nvboy. Nice work!

Great stuff!

Our bikes are not just art but living everyday art we ride to work and play.

I often think about getting a newer bike. Then I take the old girl out, even just shopping, I park it and always look back. Who wants a bike they park and walk away from without a backward glance!

Merry Christmas everyone

WhooHoo! Ilsa's a calendar girl. She's hanging in some very good looking company. Congrats to the winners and everyone who entered a photo. I know I had a tough time picking my favorites from the ones you guys posted. It's plain to see from the scenery that these bikes aren't garage queens.

There are some fine bikes and great scenery in this years' calendar. I've printed it out and it's hanging on the wall above my office desk. Thanks for the votes - I'm very happy the rough custom Big Block is thought of amongst you all to be of high enough quality to be included in this fine calendar of bikes near and dear to us!

Have we accomplished half of what we dreamt we would? There may still be time.

me too dai

but I guess for those that use their machines for daily transport we might be forgiven for not really having time to keep them so clean and sparkling ? but there are some that just want to get on and ride , given all the right maintenance is done
