    Since Cafefill nominated one bike himself he need not "accept" that one but he has yet to accept my nomination..so he is 50-50 at the present time...no biggie

    If you're talking about the bike you're buying from him, perhaps you could accept on his behalf. After all, it'll be in your hands by the end of the month. Maybe the "powers that be" could chime in here?

    I just read the nomination rules. I accept the nomination for the "Special Two", soon to belong to Madmax-im, and also my '77 resto-mod. Sorry I was remiss in this.
     
  6. I took your suggestion and shot some better pictures.

    Phil, when I said that, I was referring to my post. I originally had a very small pic of your bobber. I 'edited' a new and bigger one. Your pics are fine! :cheers:
    I would NEVER critisize anyones' photography.

  8. Sorry for the confusion. That original picture was just a phone pic in the back yard so I was never really happy with it. Ended up having a fun outing taking photos of the bike, so thanks for the inspiration.

    Travis, when the voting thread starts, will we have new pics up or should we add some here? Inquiring minds want to know... ;)

    I've been busy as well, but am hoping to get the voting thread together tomorrow.

    @rehar and @Jim, I use up to two photos from this thread for the voting thread and you can ask me to replace them with better ones. You can post them here or send them to me. If you make it into the Calendar, you'll need 4 photos to send to Shawn. Here is last year's voting thread to get and idea of what the voting threads look like: http://www.xs650.com/threads/2019-xs650-calendar-vote-here.53352/

    Again, I will try to gather up all the pictures and post the 2020 Calendar voting thread tomorrow. This will also give some time for those last few people to accept if they want to. People can still be nominated and accepted all the way up the voting thread being posted. That's how we've done it every other year anyway.

    Can I combine my two fork photos into one photo? Also, once I don't get a dam day here without rain I'd like to take better photos. So even after the voting thread is up, would you be able to update the old photos with the new ones I took?

    @Grimmith Sure, as long as it's a normal size (and proportion) photo and not just twice as big! :D
    Yes even after the voting thread is up, you can post better photos in the voting thread and message me on which ones you want "featured" in the first post.

    I spent the last hour making my own spread sheet and it matches the list Jim posted in post #112.

    There are three bikes in the unoffical calendar nomination thread which didn't get post here. Since we only have 18 accepted nominations, I'm going to nominate them below. Also, Bushyeyed1 and Jsellito posted interest in getting in the calendar in the unoffical thread, so I've sent them messages. I'll also email 2XSive, MotorMike, Lunarnighthawk, and eric92 to get clarificaiton.

    I'd like to nominate
