  • Saw a blue Corvette today, but we're looking for a memorial or tribute to our troops.

      • Previous picture is what we're looking for, if you can't see it, it is a tribute to our troops at our local Ace Hardware

        • If you did that pic with Imgur, select the Medium Thumbnail and they will come out the size of the one on my post. Anyway, looks like you won the challenge.

            I did use imgur, but didn't see the option for size.

            whenever you go to the page where you copy the image off Imgur, it's on that page. There's a whole bunch of options, but the window where they are listed won't show until you select a picture. So first, click on the pic you want, then choose Medium Thumbnail, then hit copied.

        • Ok, not sure if cike was just giving a description of what he was looking for or if he was participating in the challenge since the blue Corvette seemed elusive.

          I took a pic of this place earlier this year for the challenge but didn't' think it fair to use an old pic. An unbelievable Christmas Day in Iowa with temps in the upper 50's. So got in ~120 miles today since Christmas obligations had already been met. Here are a couple different local memorials.

          Solon IA for the first one.



          The second and third pics are from the Veterans Memorial Park in Cedar Rapids.

          • Believe Cike was reposting his example. You have control. Whats next.

              • Sorry guys, I was just so excited to actually get in one more ride this season I forgot to add to the challenge.

                Since we have a more limited group that can still ride let's keep this easy. How about your bike in front of a mom and pop type of diner. Bonus points if you can recommend something good on the menu.

                  I like it...shows originality and it's something everyone has a fair shake at. I know right where one is about 10 miles from here. I'm starting to feel a little better and thinking about not selling my bike. I have it listed for $4K on LetGo, if someone wants to give me that for it I'll sell it and buy 2 more. It's a bit chilly out here, nothing like you guys back east have to contend with, but I can get pneumonia at the drop of a hat, and the way things are now that's a death sentence for me. I won't be winning any challenges until it's 75+ out there. This really sucks but not as bad as the alternative. You guys have fun and I'll live vicariously through you until it warms up a little

              • Got alittle wet for this one. Went out for morning coffee.

              • Hey I might have this figured out. Here is a picture in front of our favorite coffee and donut joint called Sugar Vibes. I didn't get a cup of joe on the bike as they were closed today.

              • Lets see, how bout a picture of your bike in front of your local HVAC place. Let's get some of our trades people in the game. And I figure they got HVAC everywhere, it's just more heat related up here and AC related down south.

                  Kidding. We got a bunch of hvac companys. I already have one in mind.

                Heres one of our HVAC Companies. Its a shared building with another trade. So lets do, your Road Star with a local plumbing truck or building.

                • Wow! That didn't take long Good job. If I get on the bike again before someone beats me to it I've got one in mind.

                    Ya, one layer of thermals, jeans, long sleeve, heavy sweater and my vest. Got in about 70 miles in about mid 50s. Felt good to get a half tank ran through Bertha. She is going to need new clutch springs soon.

                • Who’s riding? MikeyC and I cant be the only ones riding. All these Road Stars.

                    Wish I were still participating. Bikes tucked away for winter here in Iowa. But I'm looking forward to rejoining in this once spring weather gets here.

                    I was wondering the same thing, it's riding season down south. Up here we feel like the stay puff marshmallow man when we ride.

                • Brad_G I hope spring comes early for you.

                • Fair warning, I'm going to be around this week end and nail this. That is if there is no snow on the ground, even then maybe.

                    Good luck MikeyC, make sure to dress warm and ride safe. Those cagers may not be looking for bikes this time of year.

                • Wish it wasnt my challenge. Hope some of these new members in the southern states should jump in. Thanks for bring it back up on the recent post. Ill be in the mountains camping and playing in the snow.

                  • Here it is folks! Bike with an HVAC company truck.
                    SOOOO, for the next challenge how bout a picture of your bike with your, or any, State Fairground in the background. I know that narrows it down a little, but still.... I know some people live right next to a state fairground SHORES!! Not to mention any names. So, gotta see the sign that says what state it is. Of course, if your in a different country than just an equivalent would work.

                      This could take awhile I'm not sure there are a lot of state fairs going on in the dead of winter.

                      But the buildings and grounds are still there.

                  • The Challenge was for a Plumbing truck or plumbing office. HVAC was all ready done. Sorry Mikey_c. I m going have to say still looking for the plumber!

                    • Ooooh, oops, my bad. I will look for a plumbing outfit. Scratch that State Fairground thing.
