In #7 you mention cars. This is a motorcycle forum. Are you now allowing pictures of cars to enter the competition? Did you mean to say ”motorcycles?”

I hope I'm the first one to follow the directions. Correctly.

1) Here are three photos. And I don't see any people in any of them.

2) Only mod is the license plate holder and swapping the handle bars from left to right.

3) Yep.

4) The sounds it makes when you start her first thing in the morning. I loved the attention to detail and the hardware that they used building these bikes.

The first two photos are after getting it home and cleaning it. Yes, I have a problem. The third photo is an hour later..... some of you will get it, some of you will not.

The rules, especially #7, seem to indicate this contest is not limited to motorcycles.

Thank you for bringing that to my attention. We are doing this on a few sites. I let that slip through.
The Ride of the Month will be limited to Bikes here.

Thanks for your contributions!! I cannot wait to see more of them!

Although having a brand new bike would be nice, really nice, this 2003 serves my purposes very well. During a recent broad-spectrum maintenance spree, I also repainted many of the worn, faded trim pieces, including the valve covers which had a corroded appearance.

Since a yellow Goldwing is dangerously fast, I had to paint these trim pieces black in order to slow it down to a safer speed. As I get older, I’ll have to add more black. The chrome side covers are probably next.

All kidding aside, most of the black comes from rattle cans of truck bed coating which is very tough and allows for easy touch-ups when necessary.

Thank you. I’ll be happy to do that, but it will be a few days before I have time to dedicate to it. I have quite a few responsibilities being thrown at me right now, including moving into a new house.

Just bought my 10th goldwing, this time a 2020 Honda goldwing tour.
White, 6 speed manual, cuz my wife said she likes it when I shift, That's what she said. LoL

I drive a school bus she's a teacher, we're off all good summer to ride this goldwing all over the country. We've been from Texas to the north of Maine been through Mount Rushmore all the way to to Canada and Michigan back to West Virginia and back to Texas

This summer we were going to go to Alaska but for now just probably head to Southern California all the way to the coast of Washington and hit some western states, celebrating our 35th this year.
