    Anti-Concours Awards Ceremony

    Here are some of the award recipients on the podium for the Anti-Concours bike judging. I was not able to ge the "Hexhead" winners as I was up on the podium posing with the winners as a judge. If someone has any photos of that segment please post them!

    Damn Dude!
    Can't you just link to the folder those are in like Voni and I did.

    That really slows down the thread.
    Yeah I have highspeed... But the bandwidth is still huge.

    And that is the poster's choice, I myself really don't mind one way or the other, Ian.


    Thank to all who have posted their shots, in whatever format.

    Don't get me wrong... So do I...
    All you need to do is look at the Free Association thread to see that.

    Perhaps it's the 13(+/-) images in one post that dogs it down... I dunno.
    Nonetheless, my concerns are just as valid as yours.

    It is easy for me to fix though...

    I never click through links to look at photos. I'm always dumped into some giant gallery with no idea what the OP thinks is worthwhile.

    um, I think that post would have been more effective with 2 or 3 shots. You loose your audience when you do an unedited camera dump.

    Me as well - hate clicking links and having to deal with new cookies, scripts, login requirements, etc.

    That said, I truly appreciate all the photos posted - embedded and linked!

    KATU news in Portland website

    Here's a link to the rally article on Portland's KATU (ABC) News website with a gallery of 55 pics. The author and photographer Bill Roberson rode up Friday on his immaculate Honda CBX to join my group that came Wednesday.

    http://www.katu.com/news/local/98780599.html

    I'm glad someone in Portland covered it. I used to work at KGW and I tried to get people I know there interested in covering it but they didn't seem to care. I don't think KATU would have had anything either if Bill hadn't come up to join us.

    Thanks for the link, Jim.

    The pics are nice, but I'm having too much fun reading the comments below the article.

    Yeah, those comments are kinda ridiculous. I don't understand why this whole bike brand thing always has to turn so tribal and competitive. You'd think we all worked for these companies--we defend them like they're paying us...

    Well - talk about old farts! This is the 8:00 AM crew on the John Day ride Friday morning - making a rest stop at the Post General Store.

    Thanks. The reporter must have been "of a certain age" because he concentrated on the older airheads and K bikes. Didn't notice any new RTs. Man after my own heart.
