I don't think its got anything to do with your challenge (as long as "light on" is excluded). I think its got more to do with the time of year. It's currently snowing here but it's supposed to be nice tomorrow and I'm planning on getting out on my Tiger as long as the roads clear up early enough. I'd leave your challenge up for a while longer.

Aw come on, get out and ride! That's why it's called an "adventure" bike!

Got a lot of funny looks this morning at 13f. Then, I go to my local parts place and an older guy comes in ranting about my supreme craziness, too cold, his is stored at 55f, I'm nuts, etc.

I ask "Um, what are you here doing?"

"Picking up parts for my sled."

All three parts guys busted out laughing.

OK, Here's two unusual cop cars taken this 60 degree Arizona December morning! They are a Pima County Sheriff's Office Prius and a PCSO Hummer. The next challenge is aimed at my Aussie mates, you need to have a pic of your Tiger and a Postie Bike. You can score extra fashion points (my rules) if they have the orange postal service bags! Others can use a regular old Honda CT110 if they must!

So the new challenge is your Tiger with a moped?

Well, it's little, it's orange, it's old, and it's for sale as a door stop, but does the 1985 XL80S in this pic count? Doesn't matter if it doesn't fit the criteria, but it's funny you'd offer up this challenge, considering I just took this picture an hour ago while putting the Man Cave in "winter storage" mode to regain a little room. The CRF and KTM go in special carriers that I put on a 4' tall rack in the back of The Cave. I love having my own forklift!

The little XL moved on to the back shed. I had picked it up as a resto project about 5 years ago after someone said "We rebuilt the motor, but can't make it run." After dealing with non-adjusted points, 5mm valve lash (no, I didn't leave out a decimal), 25 degree timing chain (that is stretched beyond the tensioners capability) issue, a choke plate 2mm too large that was formed into a taco when it was tightened down, and almost 1/8" of rod slap, she now sits in limbo while I decide whether or not to make it into a lawn ornament, put a "free" sign on it, or hit ebay. :-(

Mopeds and XL's don't count. Has to be a CT or a fair dinkem Postie!

Do you really think someone on here is going to get a photo opportunity with one of those specific bikes? I had mentioned earlier that mobile objects really shouldn't be used for tags. They're difficult to catch sitting still at times. Again, we'll give it a little while to see of there are takers. Maybe players can chime in and see if this challenge is even possible for them.

A game is a game, make it too easy and we will lose interest. If the challenge is not met soon, I already have a plan to make it start moving again.

I yield to whoever wants to make the next challenge. This stopped being fun.
