Homepage Picture Candidates!

This thread is for folks to nominate photos for the I-BMW Homepage Flash. No guarantee that your nomination will make it, but there's a very good chance if it shows up in this thread.
Please remember to add; 'Place' and photographer!

Sorry forgot to mention:

Please atleast 650x450 pixels, the larger the better as I will re-size to an adequate size!

Couldn't say... the original post where he included the pic was here # 90. On post # 81 it looks like the first name is David.

Well guys...

I still need a 'supply' of 'fresh images' for our Homepage Images.

Keep them coming, either as an addition to this thread or as PM to me..

Or maybe make Sventek's pic the homepage pic for 29 days and then post a different pic for a day and then start the cycle all over again with Svnetek's pic!

Somewhere a True Believer is training to kill you. He is training with minimal food or water, in austere conditions, training day and night. The only thing clean on him is his weapon and he made his web gear. He doesn't worry about what workout to do - his ruck weighs what it weighs, his runs end when the enemy stops chasing him. This True Believer is not concerned about 'how hard it is;' he knows either he wins or dies. He doesn't go home at 17:00, he is home.
He knows only The Cause.

If you're going to keep posting all these pictures of you riding, and they are impressive...but, at least get some different riding gear. You need to become a little more stylish! Wearing the same leathers in all these shots makes us feel sorry for you.

Hey, I got a new helmet... notice?? I guess I'll have to take a ride over to the Dainese D-Store to get measured for a custom set...

You people are so shallow. I vote for using other pictures of those two ladies. Maybe get Sventek to take some more of them.


We could call the new shoot: Round Two- The Nudes.

Re: Homepage Photo Candidates!

These pics are great but it appears the S in Sventeks pic is smiling!

Every shot should have such beauty in them, all the rest are sweet pics in their own right, but I have to say that Sventek is top shelf!

The female form always has potential... even when covered!

I think if the photo is not as hot or hotter than the present photo, we should leave it. I can open any cycle mag and see guys riding sport bikes on curves. Photos like this are few and far between.
