I hope we're still looking for a Corvette. Here's mine with 2. Got the pics on the way home from breakfast with my brothers in Cassville, MO. Next tag is your bike near a backhoe or reasonable item similar.

Not in the best of shape, but they are Corvettes.

I just realized how little I've posted on this forum. I joined here about the same time as I joined Saunders and Naked Gold Wings, but have spent most of my time on the other 2. This will make my 6th post in 8 and a half years.

On my way home from visiting mom today:




For the next challenge let's mix it up, you get two choices 8-)

Option 1) Your Goldwing next to an elevation sign 5000 ft or higher
Or
Option 2) Your Goldwing next to the same type and model Goldwing that is not also yours. For example, a 1500 SE next to another 1500 SE, or a 1200 Interstate next to another 1200 Interstate. They both cannot be yours and they do not have to be the same color.
Winging it every chance I get 8-)

Well that's option one I won't be doing. The highest point in England is just 3209ft above sea level. My house is a dizzying 40ft above sea level.

Shoot, sorry guys, I'm used to all the mountains around this part of the country. Let's lower it to 2500 ft or higher for option 1.

I thought the point of this whole thing was to encourage travel. Ok, it might be hard for somebody in England to travel to somewhere that would qualify (I'm not even sure what would be involved in getting a bike out of England), but WingAdmin - you don't have that excuse. It might take a while, but you can get there.

Me - I'm sitting at 2700 feet, and everything is up from here. I could go out to the edge of town and get a shot of the population/elevation sign to qualify for the 2500 ft requirement. Stew - maybe you should make it something like a double photo requirement. One with home elevation and one with an elevation of at least X ft difference. You choose the X.

Suggestion, cancel option 1 and use only option 2. Just a thought

Well, personally I like the 2 option choice. More chance for success. In 2 weeks I will be able to get an elevation shot.

I've been thinking about this a bit and I have an idea... As dtrider commented, this thread is mainly to have fun and get us out there riding! For myself I'm still really having a great time still being relatively new back into the sport so I'm having fun no matter what :P

Maybe a fun twist would be to have two options moving forward. A relatively easy one so there's more chance for riding and success like dingdong said, but also an option that's harder to get, you know for extra internet bonus points. Although that's not what I was thinking originally with the two options.

With that in mind if I was to re-do my challenge I would have option 1 be the "challenge" option with your Goldwing next to an elevation sign 7500' or higher and option 2 be the easier option of your Goldwing just next the the same series of Goldwing as yours. 1500 to 1500, 1200 to 1200, but still both can't be yours.

Regardless, I'm counting on you dingdong to get that pic and get me out of this! :lol:

Had to ride about 60 miles, but I found it. It's the only one in NW Arkansas. It no longer functions though. Next tag your bike with a street sign with your state name, or province-whatever is your version of our state.

OK, here's train caboose. It has been converted into an ice cream shop, but is a real caboose sitting on an old siding.




Next is to be a picture of your bike with an oil well pump.

I can't tell you about any well in S.Carolina nor Florida, but for sure there aren't any near my home, at least for 900 Mi. around me. :mrgreen:
