I've had that many stickers over the years, every time I've changed bikes ordered another couple stickers.
So sorry I am a fully paid up member here and have been since the beginning of the forum, and also a subscriber since day one and a proud owner of the much coveted Issue 1. I think ABR and Alun have had enough money and free advertising from me over the years.

Problem with this challenge and having to display a sticker is you will need at least 2 possibly even more and to get a good photo may mean manhandling your bike round just to get a f%%kin sticker in.

What about those people that have more than one bike.

What about those people that don't want stickers on their bike.

The fact that people are prepared to take part in this bit of fun and post up about it should be more than enough.

After all there is no prize being given for completing the challenge the best photo.
think you will also find that once a photo has been posted on here it is theirs to use as they wish, unless it is protected by copyright.

Oh and if anyone wants to take exception to my comments and the fact that my bike only has the one sticker and it will most definitely not be shown in all if in fact any of the pictures from the challenge then please feel free to complain to one of the MODs and ask them to remove my A-Z thread.

I don't think the sticker really matters as they always will be a personal choice, some like them, others don't. Personally I like stickers but I have yet to get the stickers on my new bike and for example I got a cracking picture of a red phone box in the middle of nowhere in Wales, I'll be using that.

If the sticker is visible it is visible if not we are all just playing for a bit of fun anyway.

Oh and I have an Issue 1 too (thumbs)
Boo :-p

I humbly apologise if I have annoyed anyone with my lack of sticker. Truth is I had one on the bash plate all last year and it got pressure washed off recently. I cant now for the life of me find the ones I got at the Midland. There is one on the horse box though and on the panniers but I dont want to get moaned at for riding around with empty panniers now do I? :)

@TomBoyNI - Is it ok to pinch your footer a-z challenge logo???

To stop all the 'no sticker showing' issues Ill turn TomBoyNI's logo into a downloadable .pdf that you can print out and just rest somewhere on the bike.

What do you all think??

NO

because then you will have to ensure you've always got a copy of it on you what if you're out for just a bimble then come across something that you could tick of your list you cant because you left it at home.
what if it gets wet, blows away.

I think if you are willing to go out and take part and you're a member of this forum and you're posting it on here then that should be enough.

The Rules should be
A photo of your bike with the respective letter object.
one picture for one topic. even if you can get 2 or more of the topics in one picture. E.G nighttime and Stadium you cant take a picture of your bike outside a stadium at night and claim it for two.
A picture taken this year

There has never in the history of the ABR challenges been a rule that states your ABR sticker must be shown.

Not that your lack of a sticker bothers me, but i picked up a few at the Excel and you are more than welcome to one ...I can usually be found at Route 66 or Rias in Waltham Chase if thats any help?
