Don't take me wrong - love the pic, wish I had on like that of my kids. Just don't think it is front page material.

Most of the pics here are posed in some way or another. I think there is (and should be) room on the front page for a variety of styles.

Jep, i think you´re absolutely right...!! I collected nearly 700 pictures from ADVRider for my home screensaver and there is a choice of everthing... posed, random, some "kamchat riding", and so on...

So let´s go on with this varity of style!!

Uh, the Chiricahua Mountains? Although the Chihuahua Mountains sound kinda small and cute (but maybe a little yappy).

The Mexican state of Chihuahua is anything but small and cute

I get what your saying, but to others advrider is as much about a lifestyle as it is about motorcycles. Adding the lifestyle into the photo is what this image was about. It's representative of a different kind of adventure, but an adventure none the less. Posed or not, it's about variety. Isn't a bike parked in front of a landscape technically a posed shot? What about a photographer who rides ahead to setup and capture a ktm or gs hitting a water crossing or jump hard?

The father's garage, a cheap led light, and my camera where the only tools used just as an FYI. No studios here.

I think this picture says a lot.....this sport gets in your blood early in life and lasts forever. And 988 other words.
