Came across this one a few days ago. Great pic - who and where...?

I do not think that dying is a good idea.
Living doing something that you love is a good idea.
Living until you die is a good idea. If living happens to kill you it means you made a mistake, but we are human, and humans make mistakes, so go for it, enjoy it, live until you die, rather than not living for your whole life.

Mods, any chance to move this thread to Wild Dog Pictures? Seems to belong there more than in Admin Announcements...

Dare I even ask for a sticky? :) Know it's not really active, but does give a good place to chat about any banner pics that grab the eye...

KTM's first attempt at boat building might require some more planning. ;D ;D

Be careful of the words you say.
And keep them soft and sweet.
For you never know from day to day.
Which ones you'll have to eat.

Dunno eh - with knobblies on the back they might just be onto something...

Surely there's enough power there!

;D :D ;D
02/02/12 - RIP Glen - the Arrow of Elliot and the little man with the big heart that truly was larger than life.

You have touched us and left us better for having known you - even if it was only briefly.

For grabbing the moment and living the day It's been way too early that you were taken away

That pic was submited by dustsucker
Although I try never to retouch the pics, this one was photoshopped a bit by me. Some pics, even though they look awesome, don't work so lekker as rotating banner pics so I 'enhance' them a little

Have no problem with having to crop - resizing here would have lost the impact of what is an interesting photograph.

Nicely done dustsucker!

This before pic looks like the after pic could be interesting...




I took this pic of RTR on a run to Parys.
Lets just say that i had to stop laughing when i realised he was lying in the water with the bike on top of him.  ::)
I thought at the time it would be polite not to take more pictures, but now i know better  :imaposer: :imaposer:

Am I the Camel man?

that's the GS challenge from last year AFAIK. that's freakonaleash and someone else. There is a report somewhere, but it's more like a GS challenge thread where people posted their pics and stuff
