Sorry, I had to go back and read the rules again. I thought I had to get approval first, but I see that's only if pic is disputed. So...next challenge, a picture of your bike by business that has a "We support our Troops" sign.

Yep, I did the same thing yesterday too... thought it needed approval first, so was slow in posting the next challenge. But I know now.
And I know this may come as a shock, but the US is one of the few countries I have been in where "support our troops" is so visual. I think it is awesome.
Our culture in Australia is not as demonstrative. I live in a garrison city in Australia; we have both an airforce base and army base... and at least half the city is involved in supporting the existence of the armed forces in one form or another, but we simply don't put it out there. No bumper stickers, no signs, no verbage; a couple of welcome home marches/parades a year is about the extent of it...

Next Challenge: Your bike by a business that has a "We support our Troops" sign.

Wow, this one seems to have slowed the game somewhat! I wouldn't be able to find one of these in NZ either sportytrace.

I have been at work since I posted the challenge, so I haven't been able to get a pic. If I can't find one by Tuesday, I guess we will have to wait the required week and I'll post a new challenge. Sorry guys, I thought maybe it wouldn't be so hard.

Next Challenge: Your bike by a business that has a "We support our Troops" sign.
