KMAX's Big Night and other wackiness over at the Freewheeling Spirit

Our friend du blog, the Freewheeling Spirit, is running a readers' photo contest at the moment, and it's given me a great deal of amusement. First, the delightful KMAX submitted a photo essay of a recent bacchanal of his. I have two beefs to pick with this: first, that the Freewheeling Spirit, in a lack of foresight, put a 3-photo-per-contestant limit on things, because this meanspirited rule has robbed us of more photos of that sprightly lad, KMAX, and two, that KMAX didn't enter the First, Possibly Annual, Reader Photo Contest Hughman and I held here. Maybe next year, maybe next year... I shared those pictures with the Sober Husband, but all he had to say was, "Those boys like bikes, huh?"

Anyhow, apart from the actual photos, the other source of amusement is to be found in the comments, where we learn that the Freewheeling Spirit is getting a bit of a browbeating. It turns out that his mere casual use of the term "bike porn" risks men's immortal souls. Dear God, how can he live with himself? How many men will be condemned to hell before KMAX is crowned the winner?

Hello?!?! Can't wait to see that one!

I have a simple explanation for this. I was simply not yet comfortable enough in my online persona to begin posting and sending pictures out for the whole world webbers to view and pick on. I am still a bit ill at ease with it and therefore (sadly and somewhat shamefully) have purposefully not directed any readers I may have of my own over the way of this bike porn contest in which I've likely ruined my chances for president. That said, I will most certainly further demolish my political ambishins with your next contest!

Cheers!

Your pictures have such a great sense of humor; they're hilarious. Thanks for pushing your boundaries!

It's true, I'm a smut peddler. Well, smut "pedaler" would be more accurate.

KMAX, your political future depends on whether any of those bikes were wearing a blue dress and, if so, whether the dress has been drycleaned.

Damn, that's hot! Maybe Kmax would like to come over and have a little menage a trois with me and my bike. ;)

'Scuse me while I go take a cold shower. My gears are a bit sticky...

well, my husband and i DID have a photo shoot to fulfill both the 'bike' and 'porn' aspects of the contest but i wasnt happy with any of the photos...

maybe i need a better photographer and a couple more miles on the bike.

anyway, the husband keeps telling me i would have been a shoe-in for the win.

while kmax may have been a frontrunner in the "bike porn" subset, he's not alone :
