This has been a light year trail ride wise and photo wise for me...

I really like this one from TECORE for some reason - hi-res available:

I love the shot from my Black Friday ride in GWNF - link - but it has a Jeep and people in it...

See, there are sometimes exceptions to the rules. That first black friday shot might be usable.

Also - any opinions on calendar sizes? In the past I've gone with an extra large calendar size... I'm considering a smaller one this year. Thoughts?

I love the size you've been doing them in, pricey but you won't find a nicer calendar.

I wouldn't mind smaller for cheaper as I usually buy one to keep and one to use
I hate to advocate weird chemicals, alcohol, violence or insanity to anyone...but
they've always worked for me.

In that case I will submit it for consideration.

I can probably do both, its just a little more work on my part because one has a wide aspect ratio, and the other is narrower.

If you have a photo currently in this thread, please send the high resolution image to admin (at) offroadtb.com immediately (please use subject line "ORTB Calendar" - no guarantees on it being used, but its easier for me to layout full resolution shots and know for sure how they will look!

Still need some more pictures though! So please post them up here, and also email them to the same address above. I'm going to do my best to do the final layouts on Saturday. There's a chance, though, that some family thing will get in my way and push it back...

Again thank you all for the submissions. The calendar wouldn't exist without you all.
