So I was watching the movie "One Week" (Bucket List- type motorcycle movie) a few nights ago and then looking thru all my motorcycling pics a few days later and came upon an idea. Up here in Canada it seems that every city/town thinks they'll become famous by erecting some stupid statue that all the world will want to come and see and take a picture of.
I've never noticed if American towns have the disease too. Maybe its all the cold air we inhale that alters our sense of worthwhile endeavors.
Well, I figure if we can't beat 'em we may as well join 'em. Or at least use their bad judgement to give us some destination to aim for instead of just aimlessly riding around the hinterland. My wife hates that kind of riding, so this will make every ride a 'destination' ride.
For 2012 I'm aiming to try and get a pic of my bike with every statue that's been erected in my province. I'm challenging you to do the same. You Southerners will have a head start, as I won't be out statue hunting until mid-April at the earliest. But with at least 62 statues erected in Manitoba I figure I'll be catching up pretty quick.
Here's the rules:
1. Statue must be in your home state / province
2. Your bike must be in the pic to count.
3. Extra point if you're in the the pic, too.
4. Extra point for every extra roadworthy bike in the pic. (Brand don't matter)
5. Pic must be posted on the Forum.
Here's a sample of what we'll be looking for:
That, of course, is the pumpkin found in the world-famous town of ROLAND, Manitoba.
What?! You've never heard of it? And you've never been there? Where exactly do you live?
