KLR Calendar?

Got this idea from my brother and his Samurai forums. WHat if we all put our favorite KLR pic onto this thread, then vote for the 12 best and have calendars printed? Could involve forum sponsors or vendors with little ads in the corners or something? MODS/ADMIN? Might be a little late for this year but....

A KLR is not a motorcycle, it is a blank canvas with which to paint the rest of your life.

If you guys want to do some shots of us on our bikes in Speedos or something like that, I'm game.

Seriously, tho, I think it's a good idea.

I've been down this road before. Not saying it's a bad idea, just haven't seen a lot of success with it.

Initially there is a lot of interest but when it comes down to actual production and opening up the wallet the project pretty well dies a slow death. Biggest problem is cost of production for small quantities. Hard to compete with free calendars from the bank.

My Kaw Barn - 2004 KLR, 2006 Concours (sold), 1997 Bayou 400.

Yes, but were there speedos involved?

A digital version that we could use as a screen saver would be cool. And we could have more than 12 pictures.

Who among us has the ability to create something that's able to be sent via email or available for download?

Once we identify that person, we could vote on the top 20 KLR photos and have him create a file.

Or sumpin' like that...

I checked prices at Vista print online and calen dars can be printed for well less than $10 each. I did a mock order for 10 full color ones and it was just under $70 shipped.

I'm in for a calendar. She'll want it relegated to the grarage but that's where I'd want it anyway! Don't have any great pics but I'm sure others do.

I guess the next question is what kind of resolution is required or adequate for a standard sized calendar? I doubt cell phone type pics will work once blown up to calendar size?
