Tim Bates Symbology
Posted 28 August 2008 - 02:15 PM
Never, ever did I think we would have to repeat the following FJRForum tradition again this soon, less than a year from the last time we did this....
We will leave this thread up until TWN's service in Santa Barbara next month. All of you who can not attend this service can still participate via this thread. When the time comes, we will gather up all the photos here and copy them to twowheelnut.com for inclusion there, but since this is a FJRForum-specific tribute, we will keep the thread here alongside Andrew's.
PARTICIPATING IN TIM BATES SYMBOLOGY:
TwoWheelNut had always wanted to do an Alaska trip, and had just recently returned from up north. THEREFORE, for this photo, place your bike such that it faces north. Stand on the left side of the bike (as you sit on it). Face the camera, and give the classic TWN "Double Bird Salute" for the photographer.
Then post the photo here. If you have problems doing this, or problems getting the photo hosting somewhere, send me or Iggy a PM.
"Double Bird Salute" properties..... these salutes should not have the "flying" ring/index fingers aside the Bird. When TWN provided his classic salute, it was middle finger extended, all others curls under (as in the photo below). Now, if you are a serious puritan and can't bring yourself to send off TWN with double flying birds.... then hold up your glove, and fold over 4 of the 5 fingers. You know which one to remain upright.
Start taking photos people. I'll start us off......
Tim, I love you, 'Bro.... You Are #1!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Next photo, please....

I'll get one with the bike when it's light out.

I'm thinking a group photo, all with the TWN salute would be kind of nice.

So here is my salute to Tim.
