Please post your bikes here to be entered in the End Of The Year 2018 Bike Contest!
To enter your Vulcan, all you need to do is tell us a little about it, and post some photo(s). And don't forget the story behind the bike because that can often turn the trick!
The winner will be chosen by our members' votes! A new voting thread will be created near the end of December.
The following information is needed. It's OK to put "stock" as the answer.
And the story:
As long as you haven't won in the past year you can enter again.
Please post your entries in the this thread. This thread will be closed December 13th
. We'll start a poll with the entries and the winner will be named and have their bike featured on the home page.
You must have accumulated 15 posts in order to enter a bike, or to discuss the bikes, or to vote. You will be able to view the bikes, but not discuss them, vote on them, or enter your own until you have accumulated 15 posts. This is the same number of posts that has been required in the past to vote.
Please note; You may be disqualified if you 'rally votes' from other members. This can include sending private messages asking for votes, posting new threads asking for forum members to vote for you, etc.
Please be respectful when discussing other members bikes. You may also be disqualified for unsportsmanlike comments about other bikes, which can include insults, demeaning comments, or demanding in open forums or PM's that others not vote for them or that they be disqualified. If you have a legitimate concern that someone is not competing fairly and should not be considered for voting, PM a moderator.
: There must be at least two bikes entered in the contest.
We were doing "Bike of the Month" contests, but stopped because it just was not drawing enough interest. We had some months that people won by default because only they entered.
MN-Rider agreed to try a year end contest, but said if there is not much interest, then this is probably the last one.
Even if you don't win, it's cool to have people talk about your bike, and what your doing to it. So even if you just want some "feedback" on your scoot, this is time and place to get it.
- The past winners have NOT always been spiffy custom bikes, although that does tend to help. The winners are usually those who tell the best "story".
I've seen totally stock bikes win, because they told us ABOUT the bike. Why did they buy it? What prompted THIS bike.
And if you post up a custom job, don't just post a picture and leave it at that. Did you buy it like that? Why? Did you (or the shop) design it like that? Why? What prompted it?
And of course, one of the key aspects is pictures. If you want us to discuss your bike, pictures and more pictures.
Pictures with you, your husband, your wife makes the story more personal. As long as they can pull it off, pictures of your wife in a bikini seems to get bonus points (ask me how I know).
(That was a bit sexist wasn't it? If your significant other is male, and he wants to pose in a bikini.. it would probably also generate a lot of discussion.)
Remember, this contest ends December 13th
. You have until then to enter your bike. After that, this thread will be closed, and a voting thread/poll will be created.
And if we don't generate enough interest, this will be the last bike contest in a while. So lets see bikes
