Next photo challange - Your bike in a picture with a Doppler Radar.

Saw one today and thought it would be a good challange as these things are spaced out in every state and no matter who you are, you are closer to one of these than I am to one of those wierd signs that Efly posted as the first challange.

They're not saddle bags -- they're saddle baggies!

By the way - they're perfect for carrying small items. I usually carry a phone, camera, flashlight, water spray bottle, (for the faceshield), terry cloth, kickstand foot, pen, paper, knife, and a multi-tool in them, with room left over. They just velcro onto the passenger grab handles. Although I have a couple and use them when I need to carry more stuff, I never have liked tank bags.

That's a telescope, not a radar, unless! you mean there's one up there but it looks like that right now?

I know where there's two but if I get to ride tomorrow (plans dashed by 101F fever all day) I'm headed to the hills!

Yes that's a telescope, I didn't find a photo of the radar that's up there in 3 minutes of searching. It's covered in snow and 24F at the moment, I think I'll hang out by the fireplace.

For SoCal it's been cold. Forecast for tonight is a low of 17F. Where I have to work in the am the forecast is 10F. Too cold for this desert rat to ride.

Around here all the dopplers are in the middle of airports. Think I might get shot for taking my bike on a runway...would be fun though!

Same here.. even if I was inclined to ride 50 miles South including some of the worst freeway traffic here (Atlanta bypass I-285), the facility at KFFC is out near the runway and is only accessible to aviation-related traffic.

Let's hope someone can snag this one and the game doesn't get stalled..

Keep in mind these are "big" objects. The ones near most of you will be on towers that raise them over one hundred additional feet into the air. Your bike just has to be in the picture with one - not next to it. I am guessing you can see and photograph them up to a mile away. I really didn't think this would be so hard but maybe it is, due to time of year, weather and so on.

Will be ready to post a new challange if this one is not met by 4:21 this afternoon. And it will be easy.

The one at KFFC is at ground level, like the one you posted - that's why it's out in the middle of the open field where the runway is located - and not visible from public roads.

I know where there is one in the open, up on a tower as you describe. It's about 160 freeway miles from here near KGSP. Been past it driving to/from Charlotte many times..

Okay - 72 hours and no takers on the Doppler Radar site so, New Challange and this one should be easy for anyone:

A picture of your bike in your own garage . . . . .
























. . .with the front wheel off the bike . . .
















. . .and a McDonalds bag sitting on the seat.

Yeah, I figure there must be handful of guys that wouldn't even need to pose their bike for that one

You're getting close to 72 hours again... How about a pair of GENIIs?

I was just getting ready to make a challenge so simple, that anyone could do it. So in the interest of moving the game along - I'll consider the challenge met.

Next challenge is all yours!

OK, I'll keep it easy for now.

Picture of your bike with a windmill in the photo. Old style farm mill or new electricity generating mill. No cheezy Harbor Freight back yard sheet metal.
