Last call for your pictures to go into the calendar. The more the merrier. I'm looking to stop taking submissions this coming weekend (Sept 8). I'll have finished off a couple projects so I can start laying out the images and flowing in the calendar. Bring them on!

Having 2 Urals whether I'm on Florida or in NY one thing that always happens is can I have my picture taken on the bike. :D I have plenty more and that's me in the first picture sitting on the black Ural.

Man that black 08 patrol is the twin to my Toothless.

Not sure how tight it would make your deadline, but I bet there will be some great pictures to come out of the “Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride” at the end of this month.

If it would be too tight we could all just hold onto them in hopes of a repeat calendar next year. :cheers:

Hello snowymonkey. Your way north of me and my black Ural is now down in Jensen Beach. You need to get yourself a stuffed Orangutan monkey to put in the sidecar which I do once in awhile for laughs. Lucy stops people dead in there tracks.

I had thought about dressing up our training dummy from here at the station. But the stuffed monkey would be funny.

Ooo oooo. How about an alien. Then hang a sign for the raid Area 51 thing :feelsgood: :friday:

Is there a submission email address or dropbox? I have to seriously resize the photos to embed them on the SS website and they probably won't print nicely.

Like this one- 512K to put on website, but its a 3.4 meg file uncompressed/not resized

Not to be harsh, but that one doesn't show much Ural, so it probably won't make the calendar anyway.

I'm going with Larry, the crash test dummy. Remember him and Vince from the old seat belt PSA's here in the states?

Also plan to use a couple old wiper motors I've got in the parts bin here so he turns his head and waves - maybe even hook up a speaker that plays random clips from the commercials.
