So we are approaching August, which means it is time for this years Sunny Bear Challenge. I will post up the rules once we have decided on the challenges.
For those new to the site, Sunny Bear is a friendly competition to help promote those that take parts channels. The premise is that a challenge is set based on each letter of the title "Sunny Bear"

What I'd like you all to do is to come up with a list of potential challenges for each letter. Below is a link to last years so you can get the jist as to what it is all about:

https://motovlog.com/threads/sunny-bear-2017.16457/

My apologies for getting this started so late, if you could come up with some suggestions ASAP we can try and get it started around the middle of August.

Alrighty then...here goes something...

All can be tongue in cheek…

Y – Yell “Sunny Bear is here again!” at the tallest point near your home. +1 point if there is an echo back by person or nature.



B – Breathtaking cinematic static footage of you doing the Sunny Bear dance and your parked bike (e.g. beach at sunset/sunrise, above shot in a downpour, busy city curbside parking, as people walk past)

E – Make an Emoji to stick to your helmet or bike and ride up beside folks at a stop to record their reaction. 4 folks should do fine. +1 if they laugh and almost miss the light.

This challenge goes out to all members, old and new, providing your videos follow the rules you can post them up even if you have not reached the criteria for sharing content normally. That means you need to put in some suggestions for the challenges! :)
This is a great way to introduce your channels and personalities to us so it would be awesome if some of the newer members got involved! :)

I like the UFO and Bubble wand ideas! So many Harley riders take there persona far too serious.

the vids need to be something everyone who takes part in can attempt and must be safe and legal. Take a look at the first post by @Lurch in the 2017 thread I linked to in the OP on this thread, it has the rules we had for last year in it.
