Motorcycle picture of the week game

Hi all, I want to start a new game. This game is not about getting there first, it's about getting the best photo of the week based on a theme previously posted.

Rules:
  1. Today is Wednesday, I'll start with a theme.
  2. Thursday to Monday is submissions time. Everyone else can post one (and only one) picture that meets the theme.
  3. Tuesday is voting day. Vote for the picture you like the most. You can vote even if you didn't participate with a pic during the week. (voting closes at midnight, Pacific time zone).
  4. In case of a tie during the voting day, the first vote that breaks the tie the day after will decide the winner.
  5. Wednesday, the winner of the week posts a new theme using an example picture.
  6. The example picture ALSO participates.
  7. Any bike can participate... not only Stroms (as long as it is currently your bike).
  8. The date of the picture does not matter, you can use new or old pics as long as they meet the week's theme.


Summarizing:
  • Thursday to Monday: Pics that meet the week's theme are submitted.
  • Tuesday: Vote for your favorite pic of the week.
  • Wednesday: The winner posts a new theme using an example photo.



So, I'll start with this week's theme:

YOUR BIKE AND SNOW:

What's snow? Besides, it's summer and 38 deg C outside.

Satch,

It has to be a bike you currently own.

Also, although you may have an old picture that meets the challenge, chances are that such picture is not a very good one and -since yours is competing against many other photos- you are better off going out and grabbing a very cool shot to have better chances of winning for the week.

So go out and snap your best photograph of your bike and snow!
