I'll be putting together the voting thread soon (probably tomorrow) (someday). XS1961s bike was November 2015, so it's not allowed again. I emailed XS650D and Smorg hoping they'll accept, and I also messaged magoo66. That puts us at 23 to 26 bikes which is about what we normally have. Last-minute nominations are allowed until the voting thread is posted.

Since I'm new to the forum and how this works, I have a question I'm sure others are thinking but not saying...
Will we be supplying new/more pics or will the pictures currently on the forum be used?
How many pictures should we supply, if that's the answer?
Thanks! 👍

You supply new pics.
Iirc, Shawn ( @samoran1 ) asks for 5 high quality pics he can choose from.
Shawn supplies a drop box for you to put the pics in when the time comes, but it's a good idea to start shooting sooner rather than later.

.... you'll also need to supply a short bio/narrative on the bike.
Just looked in my old calendar folder and there's 6 pics in there, so I could be wrong. Maybe it's between 5 and 10 pics? Dunno. :umm:

Don't forget front/quarter shots either.
Backgrounds are important too. Bad ones make the bike look worse than it is. Good ones enhance the bike.
Shawn will put all this out there, but for those of you trying to get a jump on it, make sure your camera is set to the highest quality setting it has. If it has a RAW setting, use that. For what Shawn needs, there's no such thing as too big a file. The bigger the better.

Not to show off... well, maybe a little... :wink2: here's my calendar pics from a few yrs ago.
