It's here and it's starting!!!!!! Sunny Bear 2017!!!

The rules

1. Ride safe! Do not put yourself in danger.

2. The SBC will run from 00:00 7th August until 23:59 17th September. Times are BST (GMT+1).

3. You should only put up one video on any day, and each challenge should, where possible, be undertaken on a different day. Post your video on your YouTube channel and post a link to it on this thread.

4. The challenges should be undertaken in order. You can skip one challenge and move on to the next one, and complete the skipped challenge at the end.

5. You must ride a motorcycle or scooter (trikes and quads OK) and have posted at least one previous YouTube video riding and vlogging.

6. Once you complete your challenge, park your bike nearby (only when and where it is safe to do so) and run, or walk around your bike 3 times while chanting loudly “Sunny Bear”, “Sunny Bear”, “Sunny Bear”. Bonus points if you get third parties to join you.

7. Each vlog must be at least 3 minutes long. Try not to make them too long either!

8. Bonus points can be awarded for particularly interesting, quirky, funny vlogs.

9. The winner of the SBC will be the one with the most points by October 3rd

10. You must add link back to this thread in the BIO of your video

11, The judges are @HippoDrone @Lurch @dandoolittle and yourselves - If you think someone isn't playing ball, let us know. At least one of us will also "like" your submission post (on the forum, not YT) once we have watched it so you know it has been counted. Judges may submit videos, but will not be eligible for prizes.

12: New members may post in the thread. If you get blocked adding links by our moderation checks, please post the YouTube URL with spaces. We will edit the post for you. To post your submission in this instance, just post the bit after youtube.com/, eg: /watch?v=v2C1pQzj3Kw and a mod will turn it in to an embedded video for you.

For chat and queries about the competition, please post in this thread: https://motovlog.com/threads/sunny-bear-challenge-chat-discussion-and-queries.10925/

good luck to everyone

Personal tip:
do a playlist at your YT channel, It will help everyone (judges, your subscribers, yourself) to keep track and will order up all of your SBC videos.

Assuming a wave counts on the nod challenge?

Looking forward to give the challenge another crack. Topics seems reasonable.

Aa long as we can see you and the other bike acknowledge each other it will count.

I'll add that above.

Questions, good sir..

1. Rule number 6. Do we do that in every challange, therefore at the end of every video, or only at the video after we completed all the challanges?
2. How does the points system works?

Rule number 6 translates as make an ass of yourself every time.

Points system is arbitrary and relative. Those who do the most are going to get more points, but if you've done one more than someone else, but their content was more humourous or they thought outside the box, they could score higher than you.

Basically, don't take it too seriously, have fun and think laterally!
