Here is the first action photo POTM vote.

We’ve been a bit lenient on the ‘Retro’ content as it’s the first time we’ve run this one and we don’t want to exclude entries. However next time we will expect the bikes in question to be old.

Similarly if your photo has been in a previous competition you may not see it on the list. Not trying to be too picky about this but gets a bit silly if the same pics appear on every potm vote.

So here goes…

Ed ‘Orange 71’ attempts the water crossing

Had to be Wu for general artistry I'm afraid. Some good shots to choose from, but the way the foliage frames the very attractive scenery (I'm sure Mrs Wu is very attractive and the bike looks pretty nice too, but I am talking about the fields and trees and things ;-) ) is great.

The "action" maybe isn't exactly frantic, but it looks like an enjoyable trip to me - preferable to hurling oneself down rather unforgiving slabs of rock, anyway!

Some good efforts this month - let's see more crossed up air on retro steeds in next months contest

Wu's photo is good but since he's a 'pro' I'll have to discount it.

My vote this month will go to Mr K - that's a really strong image.

Did anybody else notice how Mr K colour co-ordinated his bike with the graffiti?

Good work fella!

Got to be Kev's pic for me...

Proper Retro that, Grundig !! all the greats were there...

Plus the look of shear terror on his face combined with the amused onlookers makes me wonder what came next !!

Hmm, between Mr K and Kev for me. Like Mr K's pic a lot. Kev's image is so utterly retro it could win it for me on that alone. Oh, and the gurn.

:lol:

I'm with the Pipeline shot - I was probably about 5 minutes behind him choking on the dust (missed the tree mind!)... :-)

Creds to Mr K's shot of course go to Mrs K - I was merely a blur on the landscape!
