Rounders' 2011 Calendar now available

One of the two motorcycling groups I still belong to is called the yearroundriders, or "Rounders".

From the Rounder website:

The Rounders are men and women who enjoy their motorcycles so much they ride them year round. The group was founded by a bunch of Mid-Westerners (inspired by a Kook on the East Coast) who ride them even when the temps are below freezing or above hot. The object of becoming a Rounder is to have fun, promote safe, responsible motorcycle use on a regular basis for as much of the year as you can. In the spirit of fun we have concocted the following levels of Rounderhood following the Fahrenheit temp scale:

100's+ Red Hot Rounder
90's Sweating Rounder
80's Half Baked Rounder
70's - R&R (Rounder Relaxing)
60's -Jr. Rounder (Just Riding)
50's - LOTF Rounder (Looking Over The Fence)
40's - FOTF Rounder (Fringe of the Fringe)
30's - Half Rounder
20's - TQ Rounder (Three Quarts)
0-20 - Rounder
Sub Zero - KHOF Rounder (Kook Hall of Fame)

Members can proclaim themselves to be in the various categories based on the truthful telling of their riding conditions. If you lie, then a pox be upon you and may your valves need constant adjustment.

To be a True Rounder, you have to ride every month of the year.

I am proud to say two things, I've achieved the KHOF above and the 2011 Calender has four of my photos which I submitted for the monthly calendar entry contest.  The members submit and the collective votes on which pictures they like best.  I am honored to have my submissions selected for the months of January, February, August and September.

So, if you are looking for a motorcycling-oriented calendar that's not just a compendium of one's marque, take a look here on and check it out.  LINK.  The cost covers production costs, no profit to the Rounders or the calendar's creator.

P.S.  If you're curious as to how much of the year I've managed to ride a motorcycle:  2010 Riding Log.
