Got to agree.

Some good photos getting posted, but most posters either haven't got the point of the thread or simply haven't read the first post.

There's a place for photos of dudes on bikes looking 'ardcore, but this thread wasn't supposed to be it. You can see why Yeehaa used to get wound up about it.

Hardly any of these photos, whilst being decent photos (some of them...), actually make me want to ride with regards to what the thread is actually about.

How is anyone going to know what particular type of photo makes any particular person want to ride?
Why should they care?

I'm enjoying pretty much all of the photos in here. To those being critical - even up your negativity by doing something constructive.

All people seem to photograph is their bike leaning against something. Hardly inspiring stuff.

On the contrary, the picture above speaks a thousand words to me. Everything's in place ready for a great ride, the bike, the lid, the height, the weather etc etc

Or alternatively the ride is over the rider is in an ambulance and some pikey is going to make off with his bike and lid any minute.

It's not a great photo of either the landscape or the bike in my opinion - it only makes me want to go ride because its got a bike in it and I am at my desk in an office!

I think it is a good photo, and it does make me want to ride. It's all casual and sunny n stuff.

Yes its Stile Cop, was a great day as Tom Night was being filmed so got to watch a real pro doing it in style.

Why does it make you not want to?

So people dont want to see pics of bikes, they dont want scenery and they dont want action shots??? Well im stumped then as that pretty much covers all biking pics doesnt it?

What about my pic of the missus doing a night ride with me tonight round Cannock, will this meet the criteria of this thread?

A bike leaning against a post is hardly an action shot
