Thumbs up The FZ1OA Picture Game

The first person (that's me!) posts a challenge about where you have to take a picture of a bike. The first person who fulfills that challenge gets to choose the next challenge.

• Take a pic of your bike to satisfy the current specific challenge.
* If it says a pic in front of a sign with "No Motorized Vehicles" one that just says "No Vehicles" will NOT work.
* If it says a pic in a drive thru, a McDonald's will work as well as a bank because the poster didn't specify it.

• Existing photos CANNOT be used. After the challenge has been posted you have to go out and get a NEW photo to satisfy it.

• Post a SPECIFIC next challenge. Make it something most people will have a chance of tagging, NOT something ridiculous. That will slow down the game for everyone. The idea is to ride, take a picture, post it and move on, not stage a performance art piece or taunt your local police.

• Remember this is a worldwide game. Make your challenge something the majority of members, regardless of location, can accomplish so we get international participation as well. It's cool that a guy from Scotland can go get a challenge from a guy in Phoenix, AZ and we should promote that type of play. As we have many active members who don't currently own and FZ1, any bike will be permitted. It must be a motorcycle, however - no cars or trikes!

• There will be disagreements about whether challenges have been met or were specific enough. The original poster has the first right to determine whether his/her challenge has been met. If we cannot come to a logical conclusion by that method the originator of the game (me!) or one of the moderators will serve as final referee. It's a dirty job but we have to have someone in this position or it will just be endless flaming arguments here. In the unlikely event we cannot get a timely judgement by referee, a vote by three players can be made to wait for "judgement" by referee or "play on".

• In the event a challenge has stalled the game, 72 hours will be the limit of it's duration. After that time limit the person who suggested it can either do it themselves or suggest a new next challenge. If they don't reply in 12 hours then the previous winner gets to pick the new next challenge.

It's pretty simple. Anyone participating in this thread automatically agrees to these rules and must abide by them regardless of their personal opinion. Anyone who cannot abide by them may feel free to withdraw from the game.

So A.. the first challenge is?

Not sure if I will out on the bike, it's close to 100 degrees in the old money here today and will top 42 C ambient just west of us.

Cheers John

Of course, bike owners who don't ride will be at a slight disadvantage..

Bike in front of a cow. Honestly, I don't live in the country.

Ok - here ya go. I live in a rural part of Georgia about 50 miles outside Atlanta. So finding farm animals is no problem. Horses, cows, donkeys, goats, pigs, even llamas. Getting a cow to come to the fence and pose --- that's a different story.

For the next challenge -- a picture of your bike at the local park.

Nice, I pass a gate and pasture very similar to that on my way to work everyday over in West Central GA. Bike looks good too.
