Ok, these photos are from the trip that I just got back from up to Northern Idaho (went up there to escape the eclipse hoopla). They were taken from the scenic overlook on Idaho Hwy 3 above Cave Lake. BTW: I highly recommend that ride, from I90 all the way down to Orofino Idaho and beyond. We do have some great views in the area.






Next tag - your bike with a motorcycle police officer. If you are in law enforcement, then it doesn't count unless you go get an officer from at least two jurisdictions away (no using somebody from your office or the neighboring one). Remember the point of the tags is to get people to go out and ride, and the purpose of this one is to get you to go talk with your friendly law enforcement officers.

Police bikes have become something of a rarity where I live. A lot of constabularies have simply given up using them, or they borrow them from other areas on the rare occasions that they do need them. They are still used a lot in big cities where there is a lot of traffic congestion, but outside these areas they are much less common.

This is a great challenge, I pass two motorcycle cops just about every other day on my way home. They must have read this challenge. Their hiding and I'm bound and determined to find em'. :twisted:

Guys - I didn't say you had to get one on the road. You can always just go to the police station and ask one of them to come out for the photo.

I'll loosen it up a bit though. As brettchallenger mentions, not all areas have motorcycle cops, so instead of restricting the challenge to that let's just say a police officer in uniform (no plain clothes officers). That should make this a little easier.

And really Hoosier - the police aren't that hard to talk to. 8-)

I can see it now.....all these GWers speeding on the streets and freeways to get pulled over for a photo op.....and watch, no one will be around, lol. I do have a Sheriff that is up here (due to living out in the hills, we are Sheriff patrolled) so could do this.....hmmmmm.

it's funny, the other day we are on our way to lowes, we were in the truck. as we passed the BIG cow at the flea market my wife asked if I had got the picture for the mark, I told her someone beat me to it and the newest mark was for a Police on a motorcycle, we both agreed we hadn't seen one in ages. Then like magic coming down the road on the opposite side is a Motorcycle Patrol officer :shock: :D

Nope. I guess nobody wants to be seen with their local police. How about a car then. If you can't get a photo with a police officer, get a shot of your bike next to a police car instead. That should be fairly simple. But then I thought getting a shot with an officer would be simple.

I thought so too, we usually have a Sheriff rig parked up at the school near me, and not lately. Need to move this lil contest along, lol.

We can do this. The tag was a good one before, I just have not been riding the past couple of weeks.

I suspect it might just be the other way round. With all the terrorism and stuff going on, the police are getting a bit jumpy at having cameras pointed at them.

Today's high was 29 degrees and cloudy. Hopefully I will be able to get in a couple of more riding days this month. Then the wing will take a nap til spring.

As bad as it sounds (and I am sure Admin and others will say "suck it up, buttercup"), we are mid 40s (not a prob much) but wet, yup, constant rain. Hmmm, time to take the AC down from the windows, and do the winterization I think.....what happened to summer?
