    And because I love a Contest, I've decided to run one of my own.

    The official title of this contest is....................................."Mark's Contest" and here are the official rules.
    .

    1). Mark's Contest (hereafter referred to as "the contest") is open to any member of this forum (including myself) that owns and rides an Indian Motorcycle. Only Indian motorcycles can be used to enter the contest.

    2). Entries can be submitted beginning at 0001 hrs pacific standard time on 1, October 2016. Early entries will not be considered.

    3). To be considered for the prize, each entrant must submit a picture taken on or after the 1st day of the month which includes their odometer reading (trip odometer readings will result in an immediate DQ) along with something showing the date at the time the photo was taken.

    The photo must show both the Odometer and the item used to verify the date. Acceptable proof of date can include a newspaper, cell phone screen, a store or gas station receipt etc. As long as it has the date you should be good. The photo's must be posted in the "Official Marks Contest" thread which I link here prior to the start of the contest.

    Here is the link to the "Official Marks Contest" Official Marks Contest | Indian Rider - Indian Motorcycle Forums


    4). Another photo must be submitted no later than 2359 hrs pacific standard time on the last day of the same month the first photo was submitted. The end of month photo must be added to the post with your first of the month photo in it.

    Only entry photo's will be accepted in the "Official Marks Contest" thread. Any comments, bitches or suggestions can be posted in this thread. Should you post a comment, bitch or suggestion in the "Official Marks Contest" thread you will be disqualified from winning the prize! NO EXCEPTIONS.

    5). Each month I will total the miles ridden for that month. The more months you enter the better your chances of winning become.

    6). At the end of the contest period which is 2359 hrs on 31 December 2016 I will determine a winner. The winner will be the person who's monthly mileage totals, when added together are the highest of all entries.

    The prize for the winner is a new high quality Leather tool bag made by "The Leather Works" in Stockton California.

    Below are some pictures of the tool bag you will receive if you are the winner.

    Remember the contest starts on 1 October and runs through 31 December.


    Good luck. Tool Bag (1).JPG Tool Bag (2).JPG Tool Bag (4).JPG Tool Bag (6).JPG Tool Bag (7).JPG Tool Bag (8).JPG Tool Bag (9).JPG

    I think it sucks. I can barely ride in October, no riding in November and definitely not in Dec. We get colder than a Well Diggers Ass and "S" up to God knows where. :(:p

    Will Disqualify myself .. I am working on getting another 3,000 miles in on the Scout so can get my last Freebie Service of 20,000 .. Sitting on 17,200 now and have to get 20,000 Miles (Big Service includes Valve Check and Adjustment if Needed) by December 10th .. For any that don't know it was rebuilt to Piston Damage on the Front Cylinder and in the shop 3 months and got it out June 17th .. Had just turned 13,000 when got it back did 4,200 Miles in less than 3 months .. Being Retired has benefits .. :)

    Why DQ yourself? Just log the miles you ride and who knows, you might win it. You don't have to post every month. From what I've read BD could probably take it with two weeks of mileage.

    Will play it by ear maybe some do really ride .. Just figured isn't very fair to some up North or others that have to work and when it's Oct and Nov in North FL is Prime Time Riding and the Rain is Gone as Well .. High 40's for a Low and Mid 70's for high , Gets no Better ... But to make it fair won't count the miles put in on my Victory or Dyna ..

    No reason to disqualify yourself - I'll bet I put more miles on than you in those 3 months! :p:D:p

    Only a few more days left until this one goes live!

    I am going to start another thread that will be dedicated to entries only. All narrative posts such as complaints etc will need to be posted in this thread and this thread only. Anyone posting anything other than pictures of their Odometer readings in the thread I will be starting in a few days will be Disqualified!

    Until 10/1, keep having fun.

    That is all.
