@CSL pretty much. Someone will probably start a final submissions thread, and you can add final and progress pics and any thoughts. There will be some time limit, say two weeks, to submit photos before judging. Several of the Japanese contestants are on IG only, so I guess they will be submitting photos here. 

Thanks for clarifying, andrewrose.

@chicote Love that set! And glad you made it on that bike. I used to have a similar Honda but man that thing was not fun on the highways. I eventually moved on. Anyways, I've never heard an RB described as little and that's one of the most inconvenient and cumbersome ways to shoot polaroids but hats off to you! Did you put any proper negs through it as well?

@AlientoyWorkmachine thank you! Yeah, this is probably the last winter road trip I’ll take on a bike with no wind protection :P My boss at work always brags to me about riding to new mexico from florida on a 400cc honda in the early 70s and i kinda had that in mind setting out on this trip, but people musta been tougher back then or something!

and you’re right, the rb filled up like 1/3 of my bag, lol, but it was fun to have something i needed to be so intentional about setting up. It came with a 120 back that needs new light seals but i am considering just shooting sx-70 on it forever; the big wide clear lens combined with the magic of that colour chemistry feels really special to me in the limited time ive used it so far.

Finally got the emoji that was blocking my mobile responses deleted (long story)! I'm in Mexico currently without a computer so I couldn't respond with an accidental emoji blocking me from posting and I couldn't just delete it from the response field.

 

Anyway, accept the compliment @bartlebyyphonics. I'd give the 'fit nos to you as a 1a and @CSL as a very close 1b for the contest. Love the looks!

@chicote I love a W650. A truer Triumph Bonneville repro than the Triumph Bonneville repro. I also commend you for cold weather rising US highways on an air cooled 650 twin. They're delightful to ride, but lack a little top end when you need it out there blasting the open roads here. 

 

And yes, below 45 on a naked motorcycle with no electric support is painful. I think your charging system can support Gerbing electric gloves and jacket liner. If so, that'll get you down the road in freezing temps just fine. 

 

Love the photos too! The southwest has been calling me back for a few years now and between you and CSL, this contest has only strengthened that call.

I named it crotch-ception. 
 

I obviously know nothing technical about sewing, and it shows. This is the last repair before the end of the contest, and tomorrow will be the last wash before the end of the contest. 
 

the crotch has always been the weak spot in all of my jeans, overall I think I fixed the crotch in these jeans more than 10 times. 
 

It’s been a pretty long contest and I can gladly say that I managed to wear these jeans for more than 80% of it, and as long as my underwear remain invisible on the inside of the jeans, I will keep on wearing them! (:

@アンクルカール ジーンズが素敵ですね!

下に別のデニムを着ていますか? 

thank you.

Your jeans are also very attractive and wonderful jeans, which is the only one in the world.

Under jeans, I wear under shorts.

No one will notice if/that the tiles are not exactly level…

Ha! I noticed the spirit level was conveniently obscured behind the jeans in your first photo…

Overall, the tiles are level, but I f*ed up the self levelling screed layer and now have tricky areas. In addition, some of the tiles seem to have thicker edges - so there is some lippage going on.

But my assistants keep telling me they don’t mind…

全体的に、タイルは水平ですが、セルフレベリングスクリードレイヤーを作成し、トリッキーな領域ができました。さらに、一部のタイルはエッジが厚いように見えます。そのため、多少のリップページが発生しています。

しかし、私のアシスタントは私に彼らが気にしないと言い続けます…
