Its funny what can stall the game. Your challange isn't that hard at all. I passed at least two locations today to grab the picture but thought maybe someone else would jump in who hasn't joined the game.

Argh! I just got back from being a bit of a hooligan on the Gen II, and completely forgot to take a pic of this! I even rode past the bank I knew had one (not many do around here) and still forgot!

I *did* take a pic of this, however:

.. as we'd wondered where it was coming from. Local movie theater, no idea - no promotions or special events going on. Perhaps business is slow..

Yessir, bank sign with time display. I was hoping a new challenge would be up today. What a PERFECT 63 degree day!

I know this doesn't count, but it's the best I can do. I rode about 60 miles this evening, and as best as I can count, almost that many banks. Only one, the one I mentioned yesterday, has a digital sign, and they don't display the time - only a bunch of services they offer ("re-finance here", etc.) and their phone number.



.. so if you decide (as the poster of the challenge, you can say yeah or nay) that I've met the requirement, I'll post up the next one..

Funny you mentioned that. I went back by my two local banks to grab the pic and . . . . after waiting through paragraphs of text and messages on the flashing sign - no time or temp ever appeared, just a lot of ads.

Oh well.

I used to live in West Palm Beach, and out in the Wellington area, many houses have barns, albeit usually bigger and nicer than the actual house but barns none the less.

I had stopped to switch to my clear screen and switch to warmer gloves, and checked this thread to see if the challenge had been posted. I was a mile from that tower at the time!

OK, here's (what I think is) a good one for a nice weekend to be out riding - your bike reflected in water!!

This could get messy...

I wonder if hard saddlebags can be used as flotation devices. Lol.

For the desert, I think that is great.

I was riding locally around Lake Lanier but the sun couldn't wait on me to find a good spot. Due to the recent rain I saw several large puddles that would've let me take the shot but I held out for someting better.
