Speaking for myself, I wouldn't be against seeing a "Road Warrior" or 2 in the calendar. One that's ridden more than polished. Not a rat bike, just one that's ridden. Often.

The bike photos are the dream, the inspiration and the encouragement. They are a source of ideas and realisations. As for the name behind the picture, if 5T, Mailman, Two Many or Gary turn in a great motorcycle, we expect it because those fellows are so good at what they do. If some mug from nowhere pops in with a stand-out bike it kinda gives us a shove 'cause, if an unknown can produce something worthy of our admiration, well then, so can we all. Contributors keep the forum motoring and provide we lesser mortals with the opportunity to problem solve as we dabble in our obsession. I agree with Jim's position on giving contributors a priority but remember, it's the bike we're looking at - a work of art, the realisation of the dream!

Well spoken, David !
