Following on from last month's Mountain Mayhem success we here at retrobike's palatial HQ have decided this month's contest should be dedicated to those retrobikes which are actually ridden. Definitely no garage queens allowed in this month's contest. Voters ought to give extra credit to those using and abusing their rare and valuable old ride on a regular basis. Rules can be found here, two addendums for this month as follows

1. Will allow bikes to be entered which have taken part in previous contests.
2. Please try and post an action shot to verify non-garage queen status.

Game on !

Only entered a few months back in the normal BOTM format but deserves a second outing for her performance at MM so I'm nominating the 1990 Splatter Kona Explosif..The Michelin WildSlipper tyres didn't exactly help my cause but she was the only bike out there with colourful tyres and got a warm reception from the crowd..she even did the water splash (though unfortunately that did give me a flat tyre.)

No worries. :)

I didn't want to be one of those guys who throws a bike in every month. I'll submit the one and retire to let others duke it out. :D

I'm beginning to think I'm not sure whether I'd unconsciously be voting for the rider rather than the bike. You know well-muscled legs in tight shorts :oops:

But action shots do give a kind of kudos to the bike that you don't get with clean bikes in still shots
